Robert Rodriguez Says He Cast Rose McGowan In Grindhouse To SPITE Harvey Weinstein — And The Movie Got "Buried" Because Of Her!

We've heard lots of stories over the past couple weeks from women Harvey Weinstein scared into silence. But what would have happened if they fought back? Video: Rose McGowan's Powerful Speech At The Detroit Women's Convention According to Robert Rodriguez, he did try to help Rose McGowan beat Harvey's "blacklisting" of her — by casting her in his [...] We've heard lots of stories over the past couple weeks from women Harvey Weinstein scared into silence. But what would have happened if they fought back? Video: Rose McGowan's Powerful Speech At The Detroit Women's Convention According to Robert Rodriguez, he did try to help Rose McGowan beat Harvey's "blacklisting" of her -- by casting her in his Weinstein Company-funded film Grindhouse. In fact, in an official essay for Variety, he reveals the plot of his half of the throwback double feature with Quentin Tarantino was inspired by her story, something he could never talk about before: "I have not previously discussed what I knew about the 1997 incident that Rose suffered in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival. I never wanted to do anything that jeopardized a legal settlement she entered into with Harvey Weinstein. Now that she's able to tell her story, I want to provide an account of what I knew, when I knew it, and what I did about it." Rodriguez says he first learned of her "blacklisting" at Cannes in 2005, when she explained to him why she hadn't auditioned for Sin City. She told him the whole story of the assault -- and the subsequent legal action: "Rose told me that all she could do at the time was to get Harvey Weinstein to donate money to an abused women's shelter and in return she had to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) that forbade her from talking about the horrific violation without being sued, and that she shouldn't even be telling me. To add insult to injury, she told me that she was blacklisted from even auditioning for any Weinstein movies." That's when the director got PISSED -- and decided to go renegade: "I then revealed to Rose right then and there that I was about to start writing a movie with Quentin Tarantino, a double feature throwback to 70's exploitation movies, and that if she was interested, I would write her a BAD ASS character and make her one of the leads. I wanted her to have a starring role in a big movie to take her OFF the blacklist, and the best part is that we would have Harvey's new Weinstein Company pay for the whole damn thing." But they got to throw it in Harvey's face sooner than they were expecting: "Just as I finished telling Rose this, I saw Harvey walking around the party! I called Harvey over to our table, and as soon as he got close enough to see that I was sitting with Rose, his face dropped and went ghostly white. I said, "Hey Harvey, this is Rose McGowan. I think she's amazing and really talented and I'm going to cast her in my next movie." Harvey then dribbled all over himself in the most over the top performance I'd ever seen as he gushed, "Oh she's wonderful, oh she's amazing, oh she's fantastic, oh she's so talented… You two should definitely work together." And then he skittered off. I knew right then that every word Rose told me was true, you could see it all over his face." They made the film, a star-studded, strangely meta movie that played like two '70s B movies, complete with fake trailers for other movies made by friends like Eli Roth and Edgar Wright. It was crazy and long and ahead of its time -- and Rose is spectacular in it. Unfortunately it completely tanked at the box office. Rodriguez still believes Harvey's vendetta against Rose is what kept the movie from even being given a fighting chance with a proper ad campaign, etc. He explains: "But because of the NDA Rose told me she had signed, at Rose's request I had to keep it quiet from everyone until now as to why we were even making that film together, especially Harvey. We knew that strategically we couldn't rub it in his face why we were REALLY doing this movie, because then he'd just bury the movie, not sell it well, and everyone would lose. To our horror, Harvey buried our movie anyway, and because we did not want to risk getting sued, we never spoke publicly about the matter... I am still haunted and disillusioned that after all the good intentions, immense pain and struggle Rose and I and so many talented people went through to make the film, that Harvey Weinstein won in the end by burying the movie just because Rose was the lead actress." Robert wishes they could have spoken about the inspiration of the film, the fight behind the scenes before now. And he hopes this new conversation will change things in Hollywood and other businesses: "It's been really difficult to admit and come to terms that the NDA handcuffs forced us to needlessly jump through hoops that today would have been unnecessary because of Rose's fearlessness to speak out, despite the consequences. I hope that new legislation will result in NDAs to be legally null and void in situations where rape and assault have been committed and where power is so unequally distributed." Hear, hear! "Looking back over the years, I have wondered if I would have made the same choices, knowing the bleak outcome. We all suffered greatly on the film, and the journey ended up costing us all more than we ever bargained for. For me personally, it cost me my marriage of 16 years, my family, a large dose of sanity, and for years I have grappled with the sobering idea that maybe I made a grave error in standing up at all, when no one was even asking me to." OK, we have to stop right there -- was it really the movie failing at the box office that cost you your marriage, Robert? Or did dating your star do it? In case you didn't know, Robert and Rose went public with their relationship when the movie came out -- immediately after news of his split with his wife, Elizabeth Avellan, hit. Photos: 10 Movies That Ruined Celebrity Relationships Not the point, we know, but gotta be honest here. Anyway, go on: "I know that's not the message I'd ever want to send out, but it's been hard to justify something that now is clear was a lose/lose situation from the get-go, and that in the end failed and simply caused more damage. The reason I'm saying this is because it's very clear to me now that when someone does what Harvey Weinstein did, the devastation goes far beyond predator and victim. These past few weeks have given me new clarity and hope by seeing the tide finally turn, seeing Harvey finally on the run, and seeing all the brave women who have come forth with their own shocking and distressing stories of abuse. Since I've seen a distinct lack of stories coming from men who may have tried to do the right thing, I wanted to come forth to say that no matter the consequences, no matter how far you have to stick your neck out, no matter what you have to lose, that we must fight the good fight. Everyone has to make a stand and take action." Damn right they do! Because two against the world isn't enough. This fight needs to be ALL of us against them. [Image via Z.

Rose McGowan"s Twitter Account Suspended Following Harvey Weinstein & Ben Affleck Posts: "There Are Powerful Forces At Work"

Wait, so Miz McGowan's Twitter can get shut down, but Donald Trump's can't??? Related: Lindsay Lohan Doubles Down On Weinstein Defense Smh. The 44-year-old shared with her followers: TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME. THERE ARE POWERFUL FORCES AT WORK. BE MY VOICE. #ROSEARMYA post shared by Rose McGowan (@rosemcgowan) on Oct 11, 2017 at 9:19pm PDT This suspension comes shortly after Rose's VVV vocal online statements about Harvey Weinstein and his sexual misconduct scandal. Not to mention, the Scream actress also put Ben Affleck on blast for playing ignorant about Weinstein's predatory ways. McGowan even told Affleck to "fuck off" at one point. While the suspension notice didn't specify why exactly her account was unable to share new messages, Twitter's online terms claim they suspend accounts if tweets have been reported to the company as being "abusive." So if a user has been "sending threats to others or impersonating other accounts," Twitter will suspend an account. Although Rose's posts have been uncensored and passionate, we're shocked to see the content has been enough to freeze her page -- especially since there are SO many aggressive trolls out there. Twitter had only this to say about the suspension: "We don't comment on individual accounts for privacy and security reasons." Sure, okay. [Image via Derrick Salters/WENN.].....»»

In case you were unaware, the Charmed alum was slated to be honored with an Ad Astra Award at the Kansas-based film festival. Sadly, 24 hours before her scheduled public appearance, organizers announced that Rose would no longer be coming. Related: All 45 Women Who Have Accused Harvey Weinstein So Far The festival noted via a press release: "We are sorry to announce that we've just been informed that Rose McGowan has canceled all upcoming public appearances due to compounding factors surrounding recent revelations in the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment case." Oh man. We have a feeling this cancellation has something to do with the reports that the indie movie mogul may still be prosecuted for raping McGowan at the Sundance Film Festival in 1997. Not to mention, it's likely that this whole scandal has been emotionally exhausting for the Scream actress. Thankfully, the festival is being VVV understanding about Rose's cancellation. Tallgrass creative director Lela Meadow-Conner added: "While we're disappointed that Rose cannot be here with us in person, we understand that her well being is the priority. We support her and our thoughts are with her. We'll seize this opportunity to amplify her message and celebrate all the women filmmakers with works here at the 15th annual festival." Well said. In place of McGowan's appearance, the festival has pulled together a panel of women filmmakers, named #WokeWomen: A Candid Conversation with Tallgrass' Female Filmmakers. LOVES it! On the quickly assembled panel, Meadow-Conner explained: "The whole world is now aware, in large part due to Rose's efforts, about the rampant sexual harassment within the entertainment industry, and so in her honor, we have pulled together a panel of women filmmakers who will be attending the festival with their films, for a frank conversation, because the message doesn't stop here." AH-Mazing. Still, it's a shame the Harvey drama got in the way of Rose attending this gig. Perhaps she'll be honored again next year?? Oh, we hope so!! [Image via FayesVision/WENN.].....»»

CBS News has suspended the veteran journalist and PBS will hold production of his show following the explosive report by The Washington Post. In the report, multiple women claim Rose made lewd phone calls, walked around naked in their presence, or groped their private parts as they worked for or aspired to work for the Charlie Rose show from the late 1990s to as recent as 2011. Related: Armie Hammer SLAMS Casey Affleck's Oscar Win Five of the eight women spoke on the condition of anonymity out of fear of Rose's power in the industry, though most agreed that Rose switched between flattery and fury in his encounters with them. An unidentified woman who said Rose groped her when she was an intern explained: "Everybody is terrified of him. He creates this environment of constant fear. And then he'll shine a spotlight on you and make you feel amazing." Five women claimed Rose put his hands on their legs, sometimes their upper thigh, in what they took as a test to gauge their reactions. Two said while traveling with Rose, he emerged from the shower and walked naked in front of them. One said he groped her buttocks at a staff party. The 75-year-old reporter issued a response to the allegations, apologizing for the times he acted "insensitively" but maintained he "always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings." Making a point to note that he believes not all of the allegations are true, Rose told the Post: "In my 45 years in journalism, I have prided myself on being an advocate for the careers of the women with whom I have worked. Nevertheless, in the past few days, claims have been made about my behavior toward some former female colleagues. "It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken. "I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will too. All of us, including me, are coming to a newer and deeper recognition of the pain caused by conduct in the past, and have come to a profound new respect for women and their lives." Sounds like a teleprompter-y apology to us. Nevertheless, here are a few of the women's stories... Related: Jeremy Piven Took A Lie Detector Test After Misconduct Allegations! Reah Bravo was an intern and then associate producer for Rose's PBS show starting in 2007. She recalled multiple sexual advances while working for Rose at his private New York estate or while traveling with him. Now looking through the lens of 2017, she understands what those moments were, telling the paper: "It has taken 10 years and a fierce moment of cultural reckoning for me to understand these moments for what they were. He was a sexual predator, and I was his victim." But she's not the only one. Kyle Godfrey-Ryan was one of Rose's assistants in the mid-aughts. She recalled over a dozen times where she says Rose walked nude in front of her while she worked in one of his NYC homes. She said he even repeatedly called the then-21-year-old late at night to describe his fantasies of her swimming naked in his pool as he watched from the bedroom. Related: Natalie Portman Tricked Into Private Plane Ride ALONE With Producer After ignoring the nudity and the calls, Godfrey-Ryan said she soon reported the incidents to management, but allegedly was brushed off and made to feel "like I was being a dramatic little girl." Eventually, she stopped reporting the incidents to management and confided to a mutual friend outside the show about Rose. The friend told Rose, and Rose reportedly fired her. She explained: "He took me out to lunch and told me how embarrassed he was, how he didn't treat me like that. It was really about how I got it wrong, and, obviously, I couldn't work there anymore." Sounds like there's a pattern. Does this mean even more stories will come out against the CBS veteran? We'll find out soon enough. Head over to The Washington Post to read each woman's story.

Rose McGowan Announces Intention To Fight Felony Cocaine Charge: "I Will Clearly Plead Not Guilty"

Following her arrest for felony cocaine possession, the Charmed alum announced that she plans to plead not guilty to the allegation AND suggested that the drugs found in her belongings were planted. Well, well!! Related: Third Accuser Says Ed Westwick "Groped" Her Breasts As we previously reported, back in January, an airport employee allegedly found the industry vet's wallet with two bags of white powder inside. Police claim the baggies tested positively for cocaine. However, Rose is now defending that a trip to the bathroom gave someone ample opportunity to plant the illegal substance in her wallet. While speaking with The New Yorker's Ronan Farrow, McGowan detailed how she carried a slim card wallet with her on the United flight to Washington. Not only did the 44-year-old never take her wallet out of her bag, but she also left her bag unattended when she went to the restroom. Rose recalled: "I had it in the side pocket of my backpack, and I left it on my seat as I went to the bathroom..." Upon her arrival at Washington Dulles International Airport, Rose realized her wallet was MIA and tweeted at United for assistance in locating it. When a detective reached out to her to claim her wallet, McGowan was hesitant to do so as she had been recently followed amid her claims of rape against a "studio head." The movie mogul in question was later revealed to be Harvey Weinstein, who DID have his misconduct accusers followed by intelligence operatives. Initially, the Scream actress planned to turn herself over to the police, but was fearful that this warrant was a ploy to silence her. She continued: "I was going to ASAP but then things started to get really weird. I knew I was being followed and that I wasn't safe." Fair point. McGowan has also noted that she isn't a user of cocaine and wouldn't have even thought to bring drugs with her to D.C. as she was in the country's capital for the Women's March. On how she plans to plead, Rose concluded: "I will clearly plead not guilty." There you have it. Be sure to ch-ch-check back for any updates on this controversy...
