Rose McGowan says Harvey Weinstein offered her $1 million to keep her mouth shut before his 1st sexual harassment story broke - which she countered for far higher before ultimately shooting him down.

According to the Times, the offer came just as several women were about to come forward with their claims of sexual misconduct against Weinstein in the exposé published by the newspaper.

"I came to be a voice for all of us who've been told we were nothing, for all of us who've been looked down on, for all of us who've been grabbed by the motherf-ing pussy", she said in the rousing speech at the Women's Convention in Detroit. "I figured I could probably have gotten him up to three". "In any case, I resembled - ew, net, you're nauseating, I don't need your cash, that would influence me to feel sickening".

After numerous times of implying to what unfolded, not long ago Rose McGowan uncovered Harvey Weinstein had raped her in an inn room when she was a youthful and on-the-ascent performing artist in 1997.

Rodriguez then revealed to McGowan that he was working on the Grindhouse movie with Quentin Tarantino (Rodriguez's half of the film would be called Planet Terror), and that he would write her as the badass lead. "I have been silenced for 20 years".

"The scarlet letter is theirs", she said.

"You told her that I should care about HIS reputation". I have been harassed.

Of the more than 50 alleged victims, McGowan was among the first prominent actresses to speak out following the explosive New York Times expose on Weinstein's behavior.

Delivering opening remarks at The Women's Convention in Detroit, McGowan thanked the audience "for giving me wings during this very hard time".

The actress declined the $1 million offer one day before the October 5 New York Times exposé revealed decades of alleged sexual harassment and misconduct by Weinstein. I am just like you. I asked her 'Why didn't you audition for it?

McGowan did not say Weinstein's name outright, though she did say that seeing "the monster's face" so much in news reports recently was hard for her.

"What happened to me behind the scenes happens to all of us in society and it can not stand and it will not stand", she said. I have been maligned, and you know what?

"We are free. We are strong".
