Rose McGowan Turned Down $1 Million Offer to Stay Quiet About Weinstein

  • In the past Mc Gowan is believed to have signed a non-disclosure agreement at the close of the suit and has only referred to him obliquely in social media since

The Harvey Weinstein scandal continues in Hollywood after more actors, including Annabella Sciorra and Daryl Hannah, have gone on the record and shared their own stories about encounters with the movie mogul.

The hush-money offer was made by someone close to the creepy filmmaker in exchange for McGowan - one of Weinstein's most vocal accusers - signing a nondisclosure agreement, the New York Times reported.

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 says she countered with $6 million, explaining she thought she could get at least $3 mil out of him - which she says she only considered to help fund her art. "I figured I could probably have gotten him up to three", she said. But I was like - ew, gross, you're disgusting, I don't want your money, that would make me feel disgusting, ' said McGowan.

Rose McGowan says she was offered a significant sum of money in exchange for her silence about Harvey Weinstein, an offer she declined one day before the October 5 New York Times exposé revealed alleged decades of sexual harassment and misconduct at the hands of the now-disgraced Hollywood mogul.

Director Robert Rodriguez, McGowan's former boyfriend, told Variety last week that he cast the actress in his 2007 film Grindhouse, released by Weinstein Co, as a rebuke to Weinstein for his alleged assault against McGowan.

This was on the grounds that, truth be told, her unique settlement with Weinstein in 1997 didn't have an a secrecy provision, which she just found out about this mid year.

"I want to thank you for being here, for giving me wings during this very hard time". It's time to rise.

'In the face of unspeakable actions, from one monster we look away to another. In her defiant speech, she called on any victims of sexual harassment or assault to "name it, shame it and call it out", and for Hollywood to "clean house". The head monster of you right now.

Weinstein, despite the 1997 settlement, September offer, and dozens of accusations, said through a rep he "unequivocally denies any allegations of nonconsensual sex". And they must die, ' said McGowan.
