The star has implied in every way possible that she was assaulted by Harvey Weinstein. She said she was raped by a studio exec but didn't name him, the New York Times exposé listed her as someone to whom the exec had to give a $100K payoff for "an episode in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival," and she is rumored to be the actress who pulled out of Ronan Farrow's article over "the legal angle."

In a series of FIRE tweets to Amazon president Jeff Bezos, accusing him of killing her project after she spoke out about Weinstein, she finally says the words outright. Read her righteous rant (below): 1) @jeffbezos I told the head of your studio that HW raped me. Over & over I said it. He said it hadn’t been proven. I said I was the proof. — rose mcgowan (@rosemcgowan) October 12, 2017 2) @jeffbezos I had already sold a script I wrote to your studio, it was in development.

Robert Rodriguez Says He Cast Rose McGowan In Grindhouse To SPITE Harvey Weinstein — And The Movie Got "Buried" Because Of Her!

We've heard lots of stories over the past couple weeks from women Harvey Weinstein scared into silence. But what would have happened if they fought back?

But what would have happened if they fought back? Video: Rose McGowan's Powerful Speech At The Detroit Women's Convention According to Robert Rodriguez, he did try to help Rose McGowan beat Harvey's "blacklisting" of her -- by casting her in his Weinstein Company-funded film Grindhouse. In fact, in an official essay for Variety, he reveals the plot of his half of the throwback double feature with Quentin Tarantino was inspired by her story, something he could never talk about before: "I have not previously discussed what I knew about the 1997 incident that Rose suffered in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival. I never wanted to do anything that jeopardized a legal settlement she entered into with Harvey Weinstein. Now that she's able to tell her story, I want to provide an account of what I knew, when I knew it, and what I did about it." Rodriguez says he first learned of her "blacklisting" at Cannes in 2005, when she explained to him why she hadn't auditioned for Sin City. She told him the whole story of the assault -- and the subsequent legal action: "Rose told me that all she could do at the time was to get Harvey Weinstein to donate money to an abused women's shelter and in return she had to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) that forbade her from talking about the horrific violation without being sued, and that she shouldn't even be telling me. To add insult to injury, she told me that she was blacklisted from even auditioning for any Weinstein movies." That's when the director got PISSED -- and decided to go renegade: "I then revealed to Rose right then and there that I was about to start writing a movie with Quentin Tarantino, a double feature throwback to 70's exploitation movies, and that if she was interested, I would write her a BAD ASS character and make her one of the leads. I wanted her to have a starring role in a big movie to take her OFF the blacklist, and the best part is that we would have Harvey's new Weinstein Company pay for the whole damn thing." But they got to throw it in Harvey's face sooner than they were expecting: "Just as I finished telling Rose this, I saw Harvey walking around the party! I called Harvey over to our table, and as soon as he got close enough to see that I was sitting with Rose, his face dropped and went ghostly white. I said, "Hey Harvey, this is Rose McGowan. I think she's amazing and really talented and I'm going to cast her in my next movie." Harvey then dribbled all over himself in the most over the top performance I'd ever seen as he gushed, "Oh she's wonderful, oh she's amazing, oh she's fantastic, oh she's so talented… You two should definitely work together." And then he skittered off. I knew right then that every word Rose told me was true, you could see it all over his face." They made the film, a star-studded, strangely meta movie that played like two '70s B movies, complete with fake trailers for other movies made by friends like Eli Roth and Edgar Wright. It was crazy and long and ahead of its time -- and Rose is spectacular in it. Unfortunately it completely tanked at the box office. Rodriguez still believes Harvey's vendetta against Rose is what kept the movie from even being given a fighting chance with a proper ad campaign, etc. He explains: "But because of the NDA Rose told me she had signed, at Rose's request I had to keep it quiet from everyone until now as to why we were even making that film together, especially Harvey. We knew that strategically we couldn't rub it in his face why we were REALLY doing this movie, because then he'd just bury the movie, not sell it well, and everyone would lose. To our horror, Harvey buried our movie anyway, and because we did not want to risk getting sued, we never spoke publicly about the matter... I am still haunted and disillusioned that after all the good intentions, immense pain and struggle Rose and I and so many talented people went through to make the film, that Harvey Weinstein won in the end by burying the movie just because Rose was the lead actress." Robert wishes they could have spoken about the inspiration of the film, the fight behind the scenes before now. And he hopes this new conversation will change things in Hollywood and other businesses: "It's been really difficult to admit and come to terms that the NDA handcuffs forced us to needlessly jump through hoops that today would have been unnecessary because of Rose's fearlessness to speak out, despite the consequences. I hope that new legislation will result in NDAs to be legally null and void in situations where rape and assault have been committed and where power is so unequally distributed." Hear, hear! "Looking back over the years, I have wondered if I would have made the same choices, knowing the bleak outcome. We all suffered greatly on the film, and the journey ended up costing us all more than we ever bargained for. For me personally, it cost me my marriage of 16 years, my family, a large dose of sanity, and for years I have grappled with the sobering idea that maybe I made a grave error in standing up at all, when no one was even asking me to." OK, we have to stop right there -- was it really the movie failing at the box office that cost you your marriage, Robert? Or did dating your star do it? In case you didn't know, Robert and Rose went public with their relationship when the movie came out -- immediately after news of his split with his wife, Elizabeth Avellan, hit. Photos: 10 Movies That Ruined Celebrity Relationships Not the point, we know, but gotta be honest here. Anyway, go on: "I know that's not the message I'd ever want to send out, but it's been hard to justify something that now is clear was a lose/lose situation from the get-go, and that in the end failed and simply caused more damage. The reason I'm saying this is because it's very clear to me now that when someone does what Harvey Weinstein did, the devastation goes far beyond predator and victim. 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 brave women who have come forth with their own shocking and distressing stories of abuse. Since I've seen a distinct lack of stories coming from men who may have tried to do the right thing, I wanted to come forth to say that no matter the consequences, no matter how far you have to stick your neck out, no matter what you have to lose, that we must fight the good fight. Everyone has to make a stand and take action." Damn right they do! Because two against the world isn't enough. This fight needs to be ALL of us against them. [Image via Z.

Rachel McAdams & Selma Blair Share Horrifying Details Of Alleged Sexual Harassment By Director James Toback!

Rachel McAdams and Selma Blair have come forward with their own allegations of sexual harassment against James Toback. For those keeping count, over 200 women have spoken out about the director's predatory ways, including Julianne Moore! In a Vanity Fair piece published on Thursday, the two actresses accused the 72-year-old of sexually harassing them after reading for [...] Rachel McAdams and Selma Blair have come forward with their own allegations of sexual harassment against James Toback. For those keeping count, over 200 women have spoken out about the director's predatory ways, including Julianne Moore! In a Vanity Fair piece published on Thursday, the two actresses accused the 72-year-old of sexually harassing them after reading for a role in his 2001 movie Harvard Man. Related: Ashley Judd Talks Harvey Weinstein In New Interview Rachel described being 21 when she met with James at his hotel room after her first audition: "Pretty quickly the conversation turned quite sexual and he said, 'You know, I just have to tell you. I have masturbated countless times today thinking about you since we met at your audition'... Then he went to the bathroom and left me with some literature to read about him. When he came back he said, 'I just jerked off in the bathroom thinking about you. Will you show me your pubic hair?' I said no." She continued: "Eventually, I just excused myself. I can't remember how long I was there. I felt like I was there forever. This has been such a source of shame for me—that I didn't have the wherewithal to get up and leave. I kept thinking, 'This is going to become normal any minute now. This is going to all make sense. This is all above board somehow.' Eventually I just realized that it wasn't. I was very lucky that I left and he didn't actually physically assault me in any way." The Doctor Strange actress also recalled feeling anger over her agent sending her to him in the first place, saying she knew of his predatory behavior: "I got up very early in the morning and called my agent at the time. And she was outraged. She was very sorry. But she also said, 'I can't believe he did it again. This isn't the first time that this has happened. He did this the last time that he was in town. He did this to one of my other actresses.' That is when I got mad, because I felt like I was kind of thrown into the lion's den and given no warning that he was a predator. This was something that he was known for doing already. I was so surprised to hear that." Selma, who was one of the anonymous women in the original Los Angeles Time piece, had a similar experience meeting with Toback in his hotel room: "It was about 40 minutes in and he said, 'Will you trust me? I cannot continue to work with you unless you trust me.' He said, 'I need you to take your clothes off. I need you to do this monologue naked.'" Despite the character being a lawyer in the courtroom, he continued to pressure her: "He said, 'Because I need to see how your body moves. How comfortable you are with your body. This is where I start training you.' I told him I was uncomfortable. But he continued to coax me—saying that this was in no way a come-on. This was part of training. He wanted to make me a good actress. He wanted to make me comfortable. I thought, 'Well, my representation sent me to see him. He must be really important.' I took off my sweater. I was so private about my body. I do remember looking down at the script and seeing my bare chest and not being able to focus on anything but the words and my face being so hot and puffy and feeling so ashamed." The Cruel Intentions star explained she tried to leave, but he wouldn't let her: "As I was telling him, 'Guess I better get out of here . . .' he sat down on the bed and said, 'No, you have to talk to me.' He started to rub his penis through his pants and asked, ‘Would you f**k me?' I went to leave and he got up and blocked the door. He said, 'You have to do this for me. You cannot leave until I have release.' I said, 'What do I have to do? I cannot touch you. I cannot have sex with you.' He said, ‘It's O.K. I can come in my pants. I have to rub up against your leg. You have to pinch my nipples. And you have to look into my eyes.' I thought, 'Well, if I can get out of here without being raped . . .'" Selma further described how he "raped" her leg: "He walked me back to the bed. He sat me down. He got on his knees. And he continued to press so hard against my leg. He was greasy and I had to look into those big brown eyes. I tried to look away, but he would hold my face. So I was forced to look into his eyes. And I felt disgust and shame, and like nobody would ever think of me as being clean again after being this close to the devil. His energy was so sinister." James then told her a story about threatening another woman who "went against" him, recalling him saying: "There is a girl who went against me. She was going to talk about something I did. I am going to tell you, and this is a promise, if she ever tells anybody, no matter how much time she thinks went by, I have people who will pull up in a car, kidnap her, and throw her in the Hudson River with cement blocks on her feet. You understand what I'm talking about, right?" Absolutely horrifying!! Selma was prompted to come forward publicly with the accusations after he denied his behavior: "When he called these women liars, and said he didn't recall meeting them and that the behavior alleged could not be attributed to him, I just felt rage and an obligation to speak publicly now." We applaud their bravery! You need to read their accounts in full HERE. [Image via FayesVision/Adriana M. Barraza/Dave Bedrosian/Future Image/WENN.].....»»

Rose McGowan Pulls Out Of Film Festival Appearance Amid Her Harvey Weinstein Rape Allegations

In case you were unaware, the Charmed alum was slated to be honored with an Ad Astra Award at the Kansas-based film festival. Sadly, 24 hours before her scheduled public appearance, organizers announced that Rose would no longer be coming. Related: All 45 Women Who Have Accused Harvey Weinstein So Far The festival noted via a press release: "We are sorry to announce that we've just been informed that Rose McGowan has canceled all upcoming public appearances due to compounding factors surrounding recent revelations in the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment case." Oh man. We have a feeling this cancellation has something to do with the reports that the indie movie mogul may still be prosecuted for raping McGowan at the Sundance Film Festival in 1997. Not to mention, it's likely that this whole scandal has been emotionally exhausting for the Scream actress. Thankfully, the festival is being VVV understanding about Rose's cancellation. Tallgrass creative director Lela Meadow-Conner added: "While we're disappointed that Rose cannot be here with us in person, we understand that her well being is the priority. We support her and our thoughts are with her. We'll seize this opportunity to amplify her message and celebrate all the women filmmakers with works here at the 15th annual festival." Well said. In place of McGowan's appearance, the festival has pulled together a panel of women filmmakers, named #WokeWomen: A Candid Conversation with Tallgrass' Female Filmmakers. LOVES it! On the quickly assembled panel, Meadow-Conner explained: "The whole world is now aware, in large part due to Rose's efforts, about the rampant sexual harassment within the entertainment industry, and so in her honor, we have pulled together a panel of women filmmakers who will be attending the festival with their films, for a frank conversation, because the message doesn't stop here." AH-Mazing. Still, it's a shame the Harvey drama got in the way of Rose attending this gig. Perhaps she'll be honored again next year?? Oh, we hope so!! [Image via FayesVision/WENN.].....»»

CBS News has suspended the veteran journalist and PBS will hold production of his show following the explosive report by The Washington Post. In the report, multiple women claim Rose made lewd phone calls, walked around naked in their presence, or groped their private parts as they worked for or aspired to work for the Charlie Rose show from the late 1990s to as recent as 2011. Related: Armie Hammer SLAMS Casey Affleck's Oscar Win Five of the eight women spoke on the condition of anonymity out of fear of Rose's power in the industry, though most agreed that Rose switched between flattery and fury in his encounters with them. An unidentified woman who said Rose groped her when she was an intern explained: "Everybody is terrified of him. He creates this environment of constant fear. And then he'll shine a spotlight on you and make you feel amazing." Five women claimed Rose put his hands on their legs, sometimes their upper thigh, in what they took as a test to gauge their reactions. Two said while traveling with Rose, he emerged from the shower and walked naked in front of them. One said he groped her buttocks at a staff party. The 75-year-old reporter issued a response to the allegations, apologizing for the times he acted "insensitively" but maintained he "always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings." Making a point to note that he believes not all of the allegations are true, Rose told the Post: "In my 45 years in journalism, I have prided myself on being an advocate for the careers of the women with whom I have worked. Nevertheless, in the past few days, claims have been made about my behavior toward some former female colleagues. "It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken. "I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will too. All of us, including me, are coming to a newer and deeper recognition of the pain caused by conduct in the past, and have come to a profound new respect for women and their lives." Sounds like a teleprompter-y apology to us. Nevertheless, here are a few of the women's stories... Related: Jeremy Piven Took A Lie Detector Test After Misconduct Allegations! Reah Bravo was an intern and then associate producer for Rose's PBS show starting in 2007. She recalled multiple sexual advances while working for Rose at his private New York estate or while traveling with him. Now looking through the lens of 2017, she understands what those moments were, telling the paper: "It has taken 10 years and a fierce moment of cultural reckoning for me to understand these moments for what they were. He was a sexual predator, and I was his victim." But she's not the only one. Kyle Godfrey-Ryan was one of Rose's assistants in the mid-aughts. She recalled over a dozen times where she says Rose walked nude in front of her while she worked in one of his NYC homes. She said he even repeatedly called the then-21-year-old late at night to describe his fantasies of her swimming naked in his pool as he watched from the bedroom. Related: Natalie Portman Tricked Into Private Plane Ride ALONE With Producer After ignoring the nudity and the calls, Godfrey-Ryan said she soon reported the incidents to management, but allegedly was brushed off and made to feel "like I was being a dramatic little girl." Eventually, she stopped reporting the incidents to management and confided to a mutual friend outside the show about Rose. The friend told Rose, and Rose reportedly fired her. She explained: "He took me out to lunch and told me how embarrassed he was, how he didn't treat me like that. It was really about how I got it wrong, and, obviously, I couldn't work there anymore." Sounds like there's a pattern. Does this mean even more stories will come out against the CBS veteran? We'll find out soon enough. Head over to The Washington Post to read each woman's story.

Selma Blair & Rachel McAdams Come Forward with James Toback Sexual Harassment Stories

Dozens of women have come forward with similar stories of sexual harassment against the director. In Rachel‘s account of what happened, the 72-year-old director invited her to his hotel room and repeatedly said inappropriate things such as “You know, I just have to tell you. I have masturbated countless times today thinking about you since we met at your audition,” and “Will you show me your pubic hair?” “I was very lucky that I left and he didn’t actually physically assault me in any way,” Rachel told Vanity Fair. “I had never experienced anything like that in my life. I was so naïve. I think I just didn’t want to believe that it could turn worse. But yes, there was this sinking feeling inside of me. Like, “Oh my god, I am in this hotel room alone with this person.” I just kept trying to normalize it—thinking, “This has to be some weird acting exercise. This is some kind of test. I just have to show that I am brave and this does not bother me and nothing can shake me.” I really was frozen. My brain was not catching up.” Selma told her story about meeting with him in his hotel room, which eventually led to him rubbing himself on her while he forced her to look at him in the eyes. “He said, ‘It’s O.K. I can come in my pants. I have to rub up against your leg. You have to pinch my nipples. And you have to look into my eyes.’ I thought, ‘Well, if I can get out of here without being raped . . .’ Selma recalled. “He walked me back to the bed. He sat me down. He got on his knees. And he continued to press so hard against my leg. He was greasy and I had to look into those big brown eyes. I tried to look away, but he would hold my face. So I was forced to look into his eyes. And I felt disgust and shame, and like nobody would ever think of me as being clean again after being this close to the devil. His energy was so sinister.”.....»»

Rose McGowan"s Twitter Account Suspended Following Harvey Weinstein & Ben Affleck Posts: "There Are Powerful Forces At Work"

Is Twitter trying to silence Rose McGowan?? It appears that may be the case as the Charmed alum took to Instagram on Wednesday to reveal that her Twitter account had been suspended for violating the social media site's rules. Wait, so Miz McGowan's Twitter can get shut down, but Donald Trump's can't??? Related: Lindsay Lohan Doubles Down [...] Is Twitter trying to silence Rose McGowan?? It appears that may be the case as the Charmed alum took to Instagram on Wednesday to reveal that her Twitter account had been suspended for violating the social media site's rules. Wait, so Miz McGowan's Twitter can get shut down, but Donald Trump's can't??? Related: Lindsay Lohan Doubles Down On Weinstein Defense Smh. The 44-year-old shared with her followers: TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME. THERE ARE POWERFUL FORCES AT WORK. BE MY VOICE. #ROSEARMYA post shared by Rose McGowan (@rosemcgowan) on Oct 11, 2017 at 9:19pm PDT This suspension comes shortly after Rose's VVV vocal online statements about Harvey Weinstein and his sexual misconduct scandal. Not to mention, the Scream actress also put Ben Affleck on blast for playing ignorant about Weinstein's predatory ways. McGowan even told Affleck to "fuck off" at one point. While the suspension notice didn't specify why exactly her account was unable to share new messages, Twitter's online terms claim they suspend accounts if tweets have been reported to the company as being "abusive." So if a user has been "sending threats to others or impersonating other accounts," Twitter will suspend an account. Although Rose's posts have been uncensored and passionate, we're shocked to see the content has been enough to freeze her page -- especially since there are SO many aggressive trolls out there. Twitter had only this to say about the suspension: "We don't comment on individual accounts for privacy and security reasons." Sure, okay. [Image via Derrick Salters/WENN.].....»»

In a new interview, Matthew Davis AKA Warner revealed he had a very serious crush on one of his costars, Selma Blair! Related: Reese Witherspoon Is "Pissed Off" About Sexism & Racism In Hollywood While the actor is engaged to former Miss Georgia 2012, Britt Sharp, he totally gushed about the American Crime Story actress, who played his fiancée in the film: "I absolutely loved and adored Selma. I developed a crush on her at the time but she was with someone else — I think she was dating the guy from Rushmore [Jason Schwartzman], but he was coming around and I was kind of like ‘Who is this guy?!'" The 39-year-old explained he fell for her sense of humor: "She was the funniest person on set. I love a very dry, dark sense of humor, so she had me in stitches the whole time... She was the bees' knees." Dang!! He really did have a thing for Selma! The Vampire Diaries star also admitted to being a huge fan of Reese Witherspoon, too: "I fanboyed out on her and embarrassed myself. I felt starstruck by all this because it happened so quickly and I hadn't adjusted. I definitely wasn't cool. At the first table read, I just kept going on and on about how much I loved her work, fawning all over her. I remember turning beet-red and later getting back in my car and just slapping my forehead, feeling like a fool." It happens to the best of us! At least Matt doesn't feel like a "fool" for playing the movie's preppy villain: "People are like ‘Oh my God, you're Warner, the asshole from Legally Blonde!' I get a lot of ‘Oh, you're such a jerk'... but I think it's funny. I think it's charming." Can everyone come back for Legally Blonde 3?? That's what fans really want!!.....»»
