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.

Weinstein's latest offer to McGowan came in the days before multiple women accused Weinstein of decades of sexual harassment and abuse in a bombshell report published on October 5 by the Times.

She told the New York Times newspaper: "I had all these people I'm paying telling me to take it so that I could fund my art".

"I've had monsters after me for years and years trying to eradicate me from this planet", she said. "In any case, I resembled - ew, net, you're nauseating, I don't need your cash, that would influence me to feel sickening".

Moreover, in order to gain his confidence and gather information, she apparently did not disclose to Farrow that she worked for Weinstein."She did not let Farrow know she was working with Weinstein however, and the journalist also kept quiet about the subject of his story at first", the Daily Mail reports.

Rodriguez said he wanted to have a "bad a** character and make her one of the leads" in his next movie with Quentin Tarantino, which was Grindhouse.

A man called 911 and reported the boy's auto was swerving in and out of traffic and had nearly run several vehicles off the road. In that case, officers found the boy driving in the fast lane on I-90 with three flat tires, according to the report.

But she said she began to have second thoughts about the agreement and eventually withdrew her counteroffer. She told the Times that she became aware of the fact that her settlement did not include a confidentiality clause.

"And then what happened, happened", she said of the alleged sexual assault. I have been harassed.

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

If you recall, back in 1997, Weinstein reportedly settled a sexual misconduct suit with McGowan for $100,000.

McGowan told attendees, "I have been silenced for 20 years". She shared new information about the circumstances surrounding the encounter with Weinstein-though she declined to reveal more about the encounter itself-with the Times, including that it was set up by her then-manager, Jill Messick, of Addis-Wechsler & Associates (now Industry Entertainment).

She wrote:"You know what is truth, Lisa?" "What happened to me behind the scenes happens to all of us in this society, and that can not stand and it will not stand". We are pure, we are strong, we are fearless and we will fight.
