Rose McGowan Offered $1 Million To Keep Quiet Regarding Harvey Weinstein Allegations

As the scandal snowballed, McGowan has emerged as one of Weinstein's most scathing critics.

The "Charmed" actress said she initially responded to the offer, which required her to sign a nondisclosure agreement, by asking for $6 million instead, but quickly asked her lawyer to withdraw the counter. And women's bravery to step up and tell their stories, she says, stems from Trump winning the election. When asked by the local media after her speech why she didn't say Weinstein's name, McGowan said, "It's a disgusting name to say and a terrible name to hear and it is a name that has haunted me". He died eight years ago.

Rodriguez, who dated McGowan from 2006 to 2009, revealed that he knew about the 1997 Sundance Film Festival incident that McGowan made public earlier this month, and that he intentionally cast the actress in a "bad ass" role as a way to spite the media mogul.

The "Charmed" actress has claimed she was raped by the disgraced movie mogul and after more than 60 allegations of sexual misconduct against him were reported in recent weeks, the producer was sacked from his own The Weinstein Company and split from his wife, Georgina Chapman.

He denies all allegations of non-consensual sex. "I'm just like you".

In the wake of the shocking revelations about Harvey Weinstein and his abuse of power against women who worked with him over the years, one more outspoken voice against him has been actress Rose McGowan. I have been slut-shamed. The mega-producer lost both his job and his wife within days of two exposés that detailed decades of alleged sexual misconduct.

Hollywood may seem like it's an isolated thing, but it is not. I have been harassed.

The original expose story, published on 5 October, was followed by multiple allegations from dozens of women accusing the Hollywood producer of sexual harassment and assault. "Because what happened to me behind the scenes happens to all of us in society, and it can not stand and it will not stand". It is the mirror that you're given to look into.

"I want to thank you for being here, for giving me wings during this very hard time, the triggering has been insane, the monster's face everywhere, my nightmare, but I know I'm not alone", she added.

"I had all these people I'm paying telling me to take it so that I could fund my art", she said.
