She alleged that after talking about her career, he held her down on the edge of a jacuzzi and sexually assaulted her. I don't know if you can truly deal with pain.

Rose McGowan knows she's borrowing a line from the animated film Monsters Inc. but it is appropriate to what she's going through and what she's trying to do. In a statement in January, McGowan said of her new show, "As I ready my book, BRAVE, I realized I wanted to show how we can heal through art even when being hounded by evil". She remembers turning to the camera and saying, now regrettably, "I think my life is finally getting easier!" Her mother later moved away with an-other man, but asked McGowan's 20-year-old boyfriend, William, to take care of her 15-year-old daughter - he soon turned violent and abusive, but she escaped.

As for the day of the Sundance incident, McGowan discusses how ironic it was that she was being followed by a mini-documentary crew. McGowan admits that she was identified as this insane off-balance woman, so during that time when her sister was asked if they were related, McGowan's sister would say they were not related.

"Be courageous", she said of her message. "I was there", the actress told Good Morning America.

According to McGowan, her estimate of that number is so high because Weinstein was not only protected by his team but she said they actually enabled to continue his alleged assaults. In fact, the actress had to sell her home to keep up the legal battle against her "evil monster's" unspecific legal action against her. A copy of the settlement was posted by The New Yorker. She said he has "tentacles" far beyond Hollywood and deep into the Democratic Party and elsewhere. "'Come on, journalists, let's go.' I said everything but the name, so draw your conclusions". "Mr. Weinstein denies Rose McGowan's allegations of non-consensual sexual contact and it is erroneous and irresponsible to conflate claims of inappropriate behavior and consensual sexual contact later regretted, with an untrue claim of rape".

To date, 84 women have come forward with allegations against Weinstein. Following these claims and reports, Weinstein was sacked from The Weinstein Company, banned from the Producer's Guild of America and expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. She drove to Seattle to trade-in the vehicle for something new before beginning the journey back to Los Angeles, and called Cantor numerous times on her ways.

"Then there's Justin Timberlake hashtagging 'my wife looks hot tonight #TimesUp, '" McGowan said of an Instagram photo JT posted on Globes night with wife Jessica Biel. We keep adding to it. "I would probably estimate there's gotta be over like, 1,000, 2,000, because this is a lifelong career of rape for this man".

Her relationship with Marilyn Manson was quite lovely: Despite the press calling him a shock rocker, the singer was a sweet person and the pair had a pretty boring, domestic existence, she writes. "There were so many".

The actor and activist has been openly critical of Weinstein for years in private, but the current sea change in Hollywood has brought McGowan's demons front and center, and she seems more than ready to confront them.

And Rose feels grateful that she is able to talk about it now and credited social media sites like Twitter for allowing that kind of conversation to take place.

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

"The wrong in my life, in that life, I couldn't pinpoint". "I thought, You know what? I am on the outside, like they are, looking in", she responded. "Get off me. No. Stand back".

"It's the truth", she said. In an interview for the program, she describes Weinstein as a "sociopathic predator". "I wish everybody were good".
