Rose McGowan said she's selling her house to fight 'monsters' like Harvey Weinstein


Actress Rose McGowan on Tuesday suggested she has paid a major financial toll for battling Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

“It’s really scary,” she said in Pasadena California, according to Entertainment Weekly. “I’m having to to sell my house right now to pay legal bills fighting off the monsters.”

“I scare because I care – which is a famous tagline from a movie called ‘Monster Inc.,’ actually, so I’m ripping it,” McGowan added when asked if it is important being “seen as a warrior.”

“But that is a summary of of really what I do. A warrior. My father said I was born with my fist up.”

McGowan was at the Television Critics Association’s (TCA) press tour promoting “Citizen Rose,” her upcoming documentary television series on E!

The actress on Tuesday also denied she had ever signed a nondisclosure agreement (NDA) as part of a $100,000 settlement with Weinstein in 1997.

“I never signed an NDA, actually,” she said. “That was a mistake the press made, and actually a mistake that I made for a long time.”

“[I was misinformed] by a lawyer that I had signed one, when in fact it turned out I hadn’t,” McGowan noted.

“I thought I remember refusing that. I think NDAs, as we’re finding out, can be broken.”

McGowan was one of the first women who accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct last year, ultimately alleging that October that he “raped” her.

The New York Times reported last October that Weinstein had reached a $100,000 settlement with McGowan, then 23, for an undisclosed incident in a hotel room in 1997.

The legal document noted the settlement was “not to be construed as an admission” by Weinstein, but one intended “to avoid litigation and buy peace.”

Scores of women have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct stretching back several decades since McGowan and several others leveled the first public allegations against him last year.

Weinstein has steadfastly denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex, but he was nonetheless fired from the powerful film production company he co-founded last October.
