Actress Rose McGowan, 44, who was allegedly raped by Harvey Weinstein at the Sudance Film Festival in 1997, said that someone close to the scandal-hit producer had made the offer in exchange for her signing a nondisclosure agreement.
According to Daily Mail,the Charmed actress, who starred in the Weinstein’s movie Scream, says she countered with her own offer of $6 million.
‘I had all these people I’m paying telling me to take it so that I could fund my art,’ said McGowan.
But she said she began to have second thoughts about the agreement and eventually withdrew her counteroffer.
‘I figured I could probably have gotten him up to three. But I was like — ew, gross, you’re disgusting, I don’t want your money, that would make me feel disgusting,’ said McGowan.
In 1997, she actress reached a $100,000 settlement with Weinstein but says she only learned this summer that the agreement never included a confidentiality clause.
