Rose McGowan Tells Hollywood To Stop Working With Sexual Predators In Powerful Open Letter Following Rape Confession: 'That Makes You No Better Than The Criminal'
Rose McGowan is not staying silent.
Last week, the actress opened up about why women don't report sexual assault, while revealing she had been raped by a studio head in the past.
And now, the 43-year-old is calling on her fellow A-listers, encouraging them to refuse to work with people in the industry who are known sexual assailants.
In a post captioned "Dear Hollywood," the Charmed alum shared a note on Twitter, saying actors who continue to work with predators are part of the problem, writing:
"To women and men in the entertainment industry who know exactly whom and what I am talking about, I say be brave. Do not work with those you know to be offenders or you are no better than they. Take a stand. You are culpable for your actions. Stop rewarding sociopaths. Every time you sanction abhorrent behavior, you are aiding and abetting a crime, that makes you than the criminal."
The fierce female continued her call to action, adding:
This is devastating.
The 43-year-old first thanked producer Cassian Elwes for supporting her when no one else would, in what initially seemed like a vague post, writing:
But then, the actress joined in the #WhyWomenDontReport conversation, confessing she had been raped by a studio head.
The Charmed alum shared:
Rose McGowan Sends Support To Cancer-Stricken Shannen Doherty While Calling Out Hollywood For Making Them Rivals!
After famously replacing Shannen Doherty on the hit TV show Charmed back in 2001, Rose McGowan has finally reached out to the 45-year-old amid her battle with breast cancer — oh, and also totally called out Hollywood for pitting them against each other all of those years ago. Better late than never, right?
On Tuesday evening, the Scream star took to Instagram to pen a powerful note where she tackled the industry's sexism problem and wished Miz Doherty only the best. Alongside a cartoon drawing of the two starlets, The Jawbreaker actress wrote:
You can always count on Rose McGowan to speak her mind!
On Wednesday, Rose took to the Hollywood Reporter to voice her opinion on a recent essay criticizing Renee Zellweger's looks. The piece in question, which was written by a MAN, essentially asked whether or not Renee is the same actress she was years ago considering the recent changes in her face.
Yep, we can't make this sh*t up.
Luckily for women everywhere, feminist watchdog McGowan decided to pen a flawless response to the offending writer and let's just say she killed it. From calling out those who "viciously" take part in the hurtful double standards to using examples from her own past struggles with misogyny to illustrate her point, this essay is a must-read for EVERYONE.
In the actress' scathing opening paragraph, she writes:
"Owen Gleiberman, this is not a counterpoint. There is no counterpoint, there is no defense for the indefensible. Renee Zellweger is a human being, with feelings, with a life, with love and with triumphs and struggles, just like the rest of us. How dare you use her as a punching bag in your mistaken attempt to make a mark at your new job. How dare you bully a woman who has done nothing but try to entertain people like you. Her crime, according to you, is growing older in a way you don't approve of. Who are you to approve of anything?"
Dayum! The outspoken gal really summed it up best when she argued that there's "no defense for the indefensible"!
Deeper in the essay, the Charmed alum recalled disturbing memories of her time in Hollywood which more than explains why she's particularly sensitive about this issue:
