Rose McGowan discussed Harvey Weinstein‘s fall from grace on The Late Show on Wednesday.
The Citizen Rose star took a seat with host Stephen Colbert and spoke about being the driver for Weinstein’s failure. Colbert stated to McGowan, “Here’s the thing about you, six months ago, before you and other people had the courage and the bravery to come out and talk about Harvey Weinstein…”
“…Mine was a year ago, I was the architect,” McGowan responded. “But I didn’t talk…I wanted them to have a voice.”
The talk program host then stated to the Charmed alum, “But six months ago if people had said…if you had said, ‘Listen man I was being surveilled by Mossad agents in the pay of Harvey Weinstein,’ we would’ve gone, ‘OK that’s coo coo for Cocoa Puffs.'”

Colbert continued, “But now, we know that that’s what happened. Did you ever think that you were crazy for thinking that?”
McGowan informed Colbert, “No, I always knew it was everybody else.” She then included, “I see things.”
Back in Oct. 2017, McGowan was discussed in a New York Times short article that shared accusations of sexual misbehavior versus Weinstein, extending back over a years. In the exposé, the NYT reported that in 1997 McGowan reached a $100,000 settlement with the Weinstein “after an episode in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival.” In action, Weinstein’s lawyer Charles J. Harder stated the short article was “saturated with false and defamatory statements.”
Shortly after the exposé was released, McGowan required to Twitter to implicate Weinstein of rape. Because that time, McGowan has actually been a huge part of the #MeToo motion.
1) I had a good time (as much as one can have in this alternate truth) on the @colbertlateshow any press framing it as? strange? I simply have a various character than you. I don?t follow procedure. And I will discuss WHAT I WANT. I asked for a Dick Cavett totally free type hangout.

Earlier today, Weinstein’s attornet Ben Brafman provided a declaration to E! News in action to McGowan, implicating her of attempting to “smear” Weinstein “with a bold lie” that is “denied” by Weinstein and “at least two witnesses,” consisting of McGowan’s previous supervisor and previous co-star Ben Affleck McGowan’s group reacted with their own declaration, calling Weinstein’s legal representative’s words a “sad, pathetic old-fashioned sexist attempt to undermine obvious truth.”
After her look on The Late Show, McGowan required to Twitter to share, “1) I had fun (as much as one can have in this alternate reality) on the @colbertlateshow any press framing it as ‘bizarre’ I just have a different personality than you. I don’t follow protocol. And I will talk about WHAT I WANT. I requested a Dick Cavett free form hangout.”
She continued, “2) I am bored of formats and questions. I am done with traditional structure. If you’re not with the fake tradition of traditional promotional ‘appearances’ then by all means, stay in your square, but DO NOT APPLY TO ME. I am unusual, that IS the point. I do not care for formats or traditional thought. Every interview of mine is different, just like a mood. A lot of you are meeting me for the first time. Don’t compare me to what you would do or be. Be free.”
McGowan’s narrative, Brave, is out now.
