In a statement issued to Variety, Rodriguez writes: "As one of the first victims to come forward with stories of sexual assault by Harvey Weinstein, Rose McGowan is a very courageous woman who I applaud for speaking out about Weinstein's repulsive behavior".

McGowan, who has starred in Scream and Planet Terror, thanked everyone who has used the #MeToo hashtag on Twitter to call out abusers as well as those who have supported her.

McGowan tweeted, "Bye bye, Spacey goodbye, it's your turn to cry, that's why we've gotta say goodbye".

McGowan - who accused Harvey of rape earlier in the month - said she considered the offer but wanted $6 million instead. "I think she's unbelievable and really talented and I'm going to cast her in my next movie, '" the director said.

According to the Times, McGowan stated she received the offer through her lawyer in September, and that it came from a source close to Weinstein. He died eight years ago.

Shortly before the rash of allegations against Weinstein came out, he offered McGowan $1 million to keep quiet about her own story. Ultimately, she made a decision to decline the offer one day before The New York Times broke a story in which multiple women in Hollywood accused Weinstein of sexual harassment.


The now-disgraced producer, Weinstein has officially apologized for his improper behavior towards those women but denied some allegations including rape. Do you think it's really going to stick?' And I do; I do, actually.

Ms. McGowan who was previously working on a memoir called courageous, and she had in the past about an alleged 1997 hotel room incident with Harvey Weinstein and also hinted at in the public. I have been slut-shamed.

That deal was not an admission of guilt but rather created to avert litigation and "buy peace", said the Times, which said it had seen the document. I have been harassed.

On Friday, McGowan said because Hollywood is male-dominated, "we are given one view". "But I was like, 'Ew, gross, you're disgusting, I don't want your money, that would make me feel disgusting.'", she said.

The actress said that what happened to her behind the scenes has happened to others, and it "cannot stand".

Rose McGowan has been one of the fiercest critics not just of Harvey Weinstein for his alleged history of sexual assault, but the entire film industry that enabled him and looked the other way for decades.
