McGowan rose to media prominence during the height of the #MeToo movement, during which the media shone a light on the actress as an important component in Weinstein’s eventual downfall.
She pointed to various talent agencies as having awareness of Weinstein’s crimes. She also asserted film festivals were frequent locales where young women would be ‘funneled.’
“[Weinstein] had a daily rape appointment. And anywhere there was a big Film Festival, he had like a full-on cottage industry to funnel young women. And you know, let’s say if it was someone else, that was like him that liked boys, it would be the same for them. It was a well-oiled machine.”
McGowan believes Weinstein tried to silence her using illegal intimidation tactics ahead of the release of her memoir “Brave,” where she expressed plans to name her rapist.
“They were flying drones around my window every day – this is three years before the Weinstein news broke,” McGowan recalled. “I was trailed, almost driven off the road. They stole my headlights out of my car. They placed trackers in my car. I thought I was manifesting everything in my life, turns out my whole house was bugged,” she said.
McGowan eventually filed a lawsuit alleging that Weinstein and his co-conspirators used spies posing as women’s rights advocates and journalists to obtain a copy of her memoir, illegally recorded her conversations, and smeared her to those in the entertainment industry who were working on projects with her.
“Any time I made a public appearance, I knew people were shadowing me,” she told Carlson. “My then-boyfriend at the time was like ‘I can’t take it. I’m being followed, my car’s broken into.’ And this is three years before the news was breaking but they knew I was writing a book.”
McGowan made a series of shocking statements on Sunday again as she appeared alongside California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder at a press conference.
The actor and activist, who is a leading figure in the #MeToo movement, accused the wife of Elder’s opponent, Governor Gavin Newsom, of trying to silence her about movie producer Harvey Weinstein, The Washington Post’s Dave Weigel reported.
Two days before the state’s recall election, the former Charmed star stated she is longer a ‘Hollywood democrat’ in which she endorsed Republican attorney and talk-show host Elder as he runs for California Governor.
And this morning she said the threats came back again, she posted a video of her home being destroyed allegedly by some operatives who work for the Democratic party.
