Rose McGowan Offered $1 Million In Harvey Weinstein Hush Money

Scandal Rose who got her big break in the Weinstein-produced movie Scream reportedly sued the producer after an alleged assault in 1997 at the Sundance Film Festival and signed a non-disclosure agreement after reaching a settlement

FORMER Hollywood actor Rose McGowan says she was recently offered $US1 million for her silence over her Harvey Weinstein sexual-assault allegation.

Through her lawyer, McGowan told the Times on Saturday that someone close to Weinstein offered her $1 million in exchange for signing a nondisclosure agreement.

McGowan stated she only considered the offer to help fund her art.

Movie to Star CHUCK's Zachary Levi
He's also had more of a comedic presence as Fandral in the Thor movies, but Shazam should be something different for him. Zachary Levi , best known for NBC's Chuck and a small role in Marvel's Thor films, has just been cast as Shazam .

The "Charmed" actress - who has alleged that the 65-year-old producer raped her - says she was offered the hefty amount by someone close to the filmmaker and whilst she initially upped it to $6 million as a counter offer, she made a decision to retract that offer after all. "I figured I could probably have gotten him up to three, but I was like, ew, gross".

At first, McGowan thought about taking the money but decided that it was incredibly immoral and it "would make (her) feel disgusting". He died eight years ago.

Though the actress, also known for her role on WB series "Charmed", reached a settlement with Weinstein for $100,000 in 1997, she realized this past summer their agreement didn't include a confidentiality clause.

While the actress originally made a counter offer, she came to the conclusion that she wasn't willing to go silent-for any price. When she arrived, she says the maître d' directed her upstairs to his suite, past two male assistants who "wouldn't look me in the eye", and into his room.

Events planned for National Drug Take Back Day
The study shows that the majority of the abused prescription come from family and friends medicine cabinets. Some local law enforcement agencies-like the Marquette Police Department-are participating, as well.

McGowan recounts the alleged 1997 encounter to the Times, describing a business meeting with Weinstein at the Sundance Film Festival that year. I have been harassed.

Dozens of women, including Angelina Jolie and Kate Beckinsale, have come forward accusing Weinstein of sexual abuse since the initial allegations became public. In other words, the star's lawyer is alleging that Weinstein wanted to pay her to keep quiet about his inappropriate actions, which McGowan has called rape on Twitter, before the Times opened the floodgates with its expose. When recalling starring in 2007's Grindhouse, which was distributed by Bob Weinstein's Dimension, McGowan said: "I was really lost at that point". I have been maligned and you know what? "I'm just like you".

'Because what happened to me behind the scenes, happens to all of us in this society.
