(SL) – Actress Rose McGowan is claiming she was “blacklisted” from Hollywood because she is a victim of rape. The actress accused Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein last week of rape, adding her name to the slew of women who’ve come forward to accuse the entertainment mogul of sexual assault.
McGowan says she was threatened with being expelled from Hollywood after reporting she was allegedly raped.
The “Independent” reports McGowan said she has between 150 and 200 people she would be able to subpoena to back up her testimony. McGowan added she actually has a signed document from the time of the attack.
The list of Harvey Weinstein’s accusers is getting longer. British actress Lysette Anthony told “The Sunday Times” the movie mogul raped her in her own home in the late 1980s.
She said she reported the incident to police on Wednesday. An ex-Miramax employee using the pseudonym “Sarah Smith” told “The Mail” on Sunday she was raped by Weinstein in the basement of his London Office.
She said she’s so traumatized that she’s kept quiet for 25 years. Today, British police said they’re investigating three new assault incidents involving the same woman from 2010, 2011 and 2015 involving a man who was accused in a separate incident on Wednesday. Police did not name Weinstein specifically.
