Rose McGowan Warns Abusers in Powerful Interview: ‘They Are Going to be Empty Suits in Their Coffins’
Actress Rose McGowan doesn’t want to be mentioned in the same breath as Harvey Weinstein, and she wants everyone to know it.
In a CNN interview with journalist Christiane Amanpour, McGowan spoke about her new book, Brave, and her experience with sexual abuse, including at the hands of Weinstein.
“[In your book] you do not name [Weinstein] and you do that consciously. Why have you decided to call him just ‘The Monster?'” Amanpour asked.
“Well, you see, I find him to be very ugly. I think we can maybe agree on that,” McGowan quipped. “Words are really profoundly important to me and I don’t have his name in there because he doesn’t deserve a place in my life, you see, he shouldn’t have been there.”
Amanpour proceeded to pull up a statement from Weinstein denying the allegations, and McGowan fiercely stopped her.
“I know what he said. People can Google it. I am not here to be challenged by a known [sexual predator], proven by the New York Times and the New Yorker, by the best investigative journalists on the planet, I do not need to hear what he says… thank you, because I know what he did, we all do.”
When asked to respond to Weinstein’s team, McGowan simply said: “They can fall off the planet, I don’t care what they say. They don’t exist in my reality. They’re complete, corrupt losers.”
“This is a warning. Do not do it. Do not come at me. Do not come at us,” she added. “They should know that they are going to be empty suits in their coffins.”
