Rose McGowan Reportedly Refused $1 Million in Hush Money From Harvey Weinstein

Rose McGowan Reportedly Refused $1 Million in Hush Money From Harvey Weinstein

In this weekend's New York Times story, McGowan says she learned over the summer that her original $100,000 settlement did not include a confidentiality clause. "I have been slut shamed, I've been harassed, I've been maligned". "I recall clearly what I said next, 'My God, why didn't you say anything?"

A day after the story was published McGowan, 44, asked her lawyer to pull the offer.

Earlier this month, she took to Twitter to accuse the now disgraced Hollywood mogul of raping her.

Weinstein, for his part, has categorically denied claims of rape.

He concludes his statement by saying: "These past few weeks have given me new clarity and hope by seeing the tide finally turn, seeing Harvey finally on the run, and seeing all the fearless women who have come forth with their own shocking and distressing stories of abuse".

"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 will not stand".

Now actress Amber Tamblyn, who has been a vocal advocate against sexism and sexual assault in Hollywood, said that she personally told Tarantino to come forward with what he knew. For all us who have been looked down on. "For all of us who have been grabbed by the motherf***ing p***y".

"In regards to Hollywood, we have no rights", she said. It's the messaging system for your mind. It is the mirror you are given to look into. We are a planet of women, and you will hear us roar.

That statistic has not changed since 1946, so we are given one view, and I know the men behind that view. She shared new information about the circumstances surrounding the encounter with Weinstein-though she declined to reveal more about the encounter itself-with the Times, including that it was set up by her then-manager, Jill Messick, of Addis-Wechsler & Associates (now Industry Entertainment).

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. Rodriguez said he was "inspired" to cast McGowan, whom he dated from 2006 to 2009, as a "badass" character to get back at her alleged assailant.

She's said she is no different than any other rape victim.

"The scarlet letter is theirs, it is not ours" McGowan said. "We are strong. We are courageous and we will fight!"

Later, McGowan appeared on a panel with fellow actress and friend Amber Tamblyn. McGowan, on the other hand, has publicly accused the producer of raping her, and spoke out at the convention Friday in her first public appearance since the scandal exploded into the national consciousness.
