  • Weinstein offered Rose McGowan $1 million in exchange for her silence

In an interview with The New York Times on Sunday, Rose McGowan revealed she was offered $1 million in hush money if she signed an agreement stating she wouldn't tell anyone about her allegations against Harvey Weinstein. However, McGowan later learned over the summer that the 1997 agreement included a confidentiality clause.

McGowan says that she was tempted to take the offer, but instead countered with a demand for $6 million in an effort to either gain a incredibly large sum from him, or simply annoy him.

She told her lawyer to pull the offer within a day of the story running. McGowan stated: "I had all these people I'm paying telling me to take it so that I could fund my art". But I was like - ew, gross, you're disgusting, I don't want your money, that would make me feel disgusting, ' said McGowan.

Dozens of women, including Angelina Jolie and Kate Beckinsale, have come forward accusing Weinstein of sexual abuse since the initial allegations became public.
