Rose Mc Gowan’s memoir “BRAVE” is set to be released at the end of the month, and it promises to reveal a lot about the actress’ history battling sexual harassment and double standards in Hollywood, including the alleged rape by Harvey Weinstein during the 1997 Sundance Film Festival.
Argento accused him of forcibly performing oral sex on her in the late 90s, and in a New Yorker article told Farrow that the encounter happened after she reluctantly agreed to give Weinstein a massage in his hotel room.
She claims he pulled up her skirt and pushed her legs apart and then performed oral sex on her while she begged him to stop. In a separate New Yorker article Scorria told Farrow that Weinstein raped her and attempted to perform oral sex on her.
Using the trending #Why Women Dont Report hashtag, Mc Gowan posted on Thursday evening that she’d attempted to have her alleged rapist brought to justice.
She wrote, “a (female) criminal attorney said because I’d done a sex scene in a film I would never win against the studio head.” Mc Gowan continued, “it’s been an open secret in Hollywood/Media & they shamed me while adulating my rapist,” before all but naming her attacker. Actress Rose Mc Gowen was paid $100,000 by Weinstein as a settlement for Mc Gowan reportedly reached a $100,000 settlement with Weinstein after an encounter in a hotel room with the executive producer in 1997 during the Sundance Film Festival.
The passage as recounted by Vanity Fair reads: In one of the memoir’s most gripping chapters, she recounts her affair with director Robert Rodriguez (“Spy Kids,” “From Dusk till Dawn”), a smooth-talking, sensitive-seeming guy who turned out to be a Svengali.
