Beginning with her childhood growing up in the polygamous cult Children of God in Italy, the actor detailed her family's escape to America after some leaders began advocating child abuse. McGowan said. "We're at over 100 on the list ..."

She wore the infamous "naked dress" to the 1998 MTV Awards as "a reclamation of my own body after my assault", she claims and, at one point, described keeping fake blood and wounds on her face after filming episodes of the witchery drama Charmed to see how the public would react to a wounded woman. Weinstein allegedly raped her in his hotel room and has since been accused of alleged sexual assault or harassment by dozens of other women.

What will it take for Hollywood to embrace Rose McGowan? "These are people with an entire presidential suite", she explained.

"There are a lot of women misogynists", McGowan said. "I would be the one that saw both sides, that nobody notices, that was pretty and there just to be used and discarded when they were done", she said. "I didn't want this.' It was my only form of voice", she said.

Though his name is omitted from the docu-series, Weinstein's presence is still visceral in Citizen Rose, a mirroring of the suffocating feeling his celebrated career has had on McGowan since he allegedly assaulted her in 1997. "Rape to me is any violation of my body", she writes. "I thought: you know what? The unnamed actor replied: "(Expletive) it.

"The thing is that the intentions are good, but I know the people behind it", she told US talk show The View, insisting it was the brainchild of four Creative Artists Agency executives who "needed good PR".

Weinstein, through his attorney and rep, has denied any accusations of nonconsensual sex. She said in the book that the producer forced himself on her during what began as a business meeting at the Sundance Film Festival in 1997.

McGowan also said that "everybody knew" about Weinstein's behavior.

The lack of respect for women permeates all aspect of show business, as McGowan describes it. "I'm having to sell my house right now to pay legal bills fighting off the monsters". "The crew would snicker in disrespect when she would direct them".

Rose McGowan has criticized Justin Timberlake for supporting the Time's Up movement after working with Woody Allen a year ago. A man on set in his late 40s "jammed his tongue down my throat" and fondled her breasts. "I was struck by that at the time". "That was a mistake the press made, and actually a mistake that I made for a long time". "I had never been filmed on a camera without a script". McGowan recalls trying to use the money to buy a billboard.

"Somebody gave him my number - and I won't mention the other names, but Gwyneth Paltrow's already talked about it - and he said, 'Gwyneth's my special friend".

Brafman said that Weinstein had obtained emailed statements from two witnesses: Ben Affleck and Jill Messick, who was then McGowan's manager.
