Rose McGowan, who is better known as an activist, shared her thoughts on working in Hollywood on her Instagram page.
She posted a photo of herself during the peak of her acting career and wrote: ‘I get asked a lot if I ever liked working in Hollywood. My answer is no. I never did. It was a means to my end. My goals. My Hollywood was a job filled with mostly sociopathic predators shooting damaged fish in a barrel. We, the beautiful ones, were the fish. We were their targets. The truth of it is that the beautiful ones are looked at as the weak gazelles in the herd, the ones that limp under the attention they receive. It was too much for me,’ – Rose began.
‘Honestly, I think agents in Hollywood are low-key human traffickers. Anyone who makes money in the negotiation of how long my right breast can be on the screen and PROFITS from it?! Sanctioned pimping if you ask me. Listen to your clients. Respect them. Don’t sell your clients out to the invisible rules of bullshit Hollywood. PS you always did suck,’ – said the actress.
The ‘Charmed’ star, who accused movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexually assaulting her in the 1990s, was one of the leading activists in the #MeToo movement that ultimately led Weinstein to conviction and jail time. Rose also recently revealed how she managed to bring Harvey to justice. Weinstein regularly made millions in payments to keep his victims silent, she said. He asked her to sign a non-disclosure agreement, but McGowan refused to do so – that was her “trick”.
‘I told him that I would take a hundred thousand dollars, but I would not sign the agreement. I think it cheered him up. Then I said a smaller amount. So we never had an agreement,’ – shared Rose.
