Rose McGowan is finally detailing her alleged sexual assault at the hands of Harvey Weinstein.
The 44-year-old actress opened up in her deeply personal upcoming book titled “BRAVE.”
In the book, she talks about the moment that she says the former movie mogul assaulted her in 1997 at the Sundance Film Festival.McGowan had previously accused Weinstein of rape on Twitter, but had not gone into detail about the alleged incident.
A book review by the New York Times says McGowan only refers to Weinstein as “the Monster” in the book.
The “Charmed” actress said that she was sent up to his suite in Park City, Utah where she thought they were going to have a meeting about her blossoming career.Instead, she says Weinstein pulled her into a room with a jacuzzi and took her clothes off, where she froze “like a statue.” She then writes that the producer sat her on the side of the jacuzzi and performed oral sex on her while he masturbated.
Afterwards, McGowan says she told some people who “counseled me to see it as something that would help my career in the long run” and was allegedly told by a criminal attorney she wouldn’t be believed if she pressed charges.
She also says she later heard Weinstein was calling people after the alleged assault and telling them not to work with her.
