'This Is Mine': Rose McGowan Talks 'Citizen Rose'

Adjust Comment Print

After being one of the first victims to publicly come forward with accusations against Harvey Weinstein, McGowan says the media is finally realizing that "this person I thought was insane and weird" has "something coming out of her mouth that might make sense".

McGowan was allegedly raped by Harvey Weinstein in 1997, and she was paid $100,000 after the incident.

"I have no time for Hollywood fakery, but you I love [Asia Argento]".

Now, I can only hope that someone will take this same attention and place it towards Tarana Burke, who deserves equal if not more attention for her own activism. I am just one of so many. "I think NDAs, as were finding out, can be broken", she added.

McGowan told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour Tuesday that she first began filming footage for "Citizen Rose" three years ago, when she also began trademarking "Rose Army" in all its forms. "Raising awareness and consciousness is really, really important to me". "So we wish Catt well, but I hope that sets the record straight on that".

Still, there's been a personal cost, she said.


As did Rosanna Arquette, another of Weinstein's accusers, who claimed that fellow Weinstein accusers Annabella Sciorra, Daryl Hannah and Mira Sorvino were not invited either.

"Citizen Rose" documents the "Charmed" star's journey as an outspoken advocate for women's rights and the #MeToo movement, and will be shown as a limited series on E!.

In a statement, the award-winning actress and 2018 Golden Globes nominee claimed that she had no knowledge about the abuses until Weinstein was exposed by an explosive report from The New York Times. While the Hollywood mogul has faced many accusations non-consensual sex, his economic rapport always helped him in escaping the charges but Rose is not one to back out.

The first look premiered during the awards show Sunday, and in it, McGowan seems just as fiery and determined about putting a stop to Hollywood's sexual intimidation culture as she does on Twitter. She will process, in nearly real-time, the massive social change she has helped usher in as well as fight back against those who have hurt so many, including her.

Rose McGowan is capitalizing on the #MeToo movement.
