Rose McGowan Offered $1 Million In Harvey Weinstein Hush Money

Rose McGowanhas claimed that someone close to Harvey Weinstein offered her $1m to remain silent about her sexual assault allegations against the producer. Both Ms. Woodward and Ms. McGowan were shocked when, only a few months afterward, Ms. Messick accepted a job working as vice president for development at Miramax, then run by Mr. Weinstein.

"The triggering has been insane - the monster's face [is] everywhere, my nightmare", she said. I have been slut shamed, I have been harassed, I have been maligned, and you know what, I'm just like you.

McGowan is one of dozens of women who have accused Weinstein of sexual assault and harassment. And women's bravery to step up and tell their stories, she says, stems from Trump winning the election.

Weinstein has previously denied allegations of non-consensual sex. McGowan said her lawyer offered her $1 million in exchange for the NDA. "I recall clearly what I said next, 'My God, why didn't you say anything?"

"What happened to me behind the scenes happens to all of us in society and it can not stand and it will not stand", she said.

They are further described as "thoroughly vetted, with comprehensive background checks and motor vehicle records reviews". Surely, having delivery guys open your door midday risks your dog getting out or a bite and subsequent lawsuit.

McGowan reached a $100,000 settlement with Weinstein in '97, but only learned over this past summer that the settlement did not include a confidentiality clause.

She said the entertainment industry was not isolated; instead, "it is the mirror you are given to look into". And perhaps the biggest takeaway message she had to offer was the following: "It's time to clean house".

When Rodriguez was gearing up to make "Grindhouse", his double-feature film with Quentin Tarantino (released in 2007 by Dimension Films, Bob Weinstein's arm of The Weinstein Company), he said he wrote a "bad a-" lead role for McGowan, in order to " take her off the blacklist" on a film Harvey Weinstein would have to pay for. On her way out, she said, he pointed out the hotel room's bath tub.

"For us, there's always just been a sort of quiet conversation happening in our business, certainly with friends, family and co-workers, about the things that we know about, but also the things that we know are secretive-and what's at stake when you come forward and speak about those things", Tamblyn said. "No more. Name it. Shame it. Call it out".

"I know the men behind that view". We are a planet of women, and you will hear us roar.
