The actor was one of the first to publicly accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct
Rose McGowan will be the subject of a new five-part documentary series.
The actor was one of the first women in Hollywood to make allegations of sexual misconduct against Harvey Weinstein. The producer has denied McGowan and all other accusers’ claims.
Citizen Rose will follow McGowan’s recent life, and will be produced by the actor, who will also star in the series. “You are formally invited into my mind and world,” McGowan said, announcing the series. “I am thrilled to partner with E! to amplify my message of bravery, art, joy, and survival.
“As I ready my book, Brave, I realised I wanted to show how we can heal through art even when being hounded by evil. I want to have a conversation with everyone, and most especially, you, about looking at things differently and seeing beauty everywhere. E!’s tremendous reach and impressive platform allow me to globally communicate the importance of living a brave life.”
The series will start this month with a two-hour feature-length documentary, as The Hollywood Reporter notes. E!’s Executive Vice President of Development And Production Amy Introcaso-Davis said: “Rose McGowan’s courage in addressing sexual abuse and harassment in Hollywood ignited a conversation and inspired other women to speak out against their abusers.
“We look forward to taking viewers inside this talented, dynamic woman’s world as the first allegations unfold and she becomes a leading voice in a critical cultural change.”
Meanwhile, McGowan recently took aim at Meryl Streep in a since-deleted tweet after the star was questioned about plans for the women of Hollywood to protest sexual misconduct in the industry by wearing black to the Golden Globes.
“Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster [Weinstein], are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest,” McGowan tweeted, adding: “YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear [Weinstein’s wife’s fashion line] Marchesa.”
