  • Rose McGowan Is Selling Her House to Pay for Her Fight Against Harvey Weinstein

Speaking on Good Morning America, she added: "It's nice being able to speak for myself".

The actress went on to sign a $100,000 settlement with the producer to not launch legal action, while she now said she doesn't regret signing the settlement. "My father said I was born with my fist up and my birthday card from him when I was 10 said "Dear Rose, I've always admired your sense of justice, happy birthday". She also talks about this alleged incident in her new biography, Brave. She has a Twitter campaign, #RoseArmy, made up of women seeking justice and a reckoning for abusers.

McGowan, 44, has accused Weinstein of raping her 20 years ago at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival.

When news of the assault claims against Weinstein first surfaced in late 2017, Affleck denied knowing about his former producer's behaviour - and McGowan called him a liar.

Now, she has a series to make those points. I did what so many who experience trauma do, I disassociated and left my body. It's pretty simple. After that, I'm golden. At every awards ceremony, we see and hear women saying they will no longer tolerate harassment and low pay; just as we see and hear men saying they want to be part of the solution, not the problem.

"It is you (who) did this to us, " she wrote. The bigger managers than her. And I'm OK with that. To me, "I'm a method actor" is usually synonymous with 'I'm going to be a (expletive) to everybody on set.' It's something so many young male Marlon Brando wannabe actors do. "I like and admire her tenacity and I wish her the best", he said.

McGowan also explained why she calls the #TimesUp movement "Hollywood fakery".

"My thought actually was just really, like, 'Oh, he'll realize I'm not like the other actresses, that I actually have a brain.' And that was my goal of the meeting", she said. Courageous is the story of how I fought my way out of these cults and reclaimed my life.

Rose McGowan helped open the floodgates against Harvey Weinstein.

When McGowan arrived at Weinstein's suite, however, the studio executive pulled her into a room with a jacuzzi and took off her clothes.

"I was in a backward world", she wrote.

"The intentions are good, but I know the people behind it, you know?" "The case is still unsolved, but I have been trying for years to remedy that". It's not an accident that I'm sitting here. It's just a systemic thing and it's for men and women.

It's an odd fit, putting a show about #MeToo activist and whistleblower Rose McGowan on E!, a network that worships Hollywood and is second only to Bravo for showcasing women as objects of frivolous spectacle.

During her interview with Roberts, McGowan said that she had MTV cameras following her for a "day in the life of Rose McGowan" segment prior to her meeting with Weinstein, and noted that it was not unusual to audition in a hotel room.
