The New York Times broke the story on October 5 about Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct, saying that over the past 30 years, he reached at least eight settlements with accusers.

McGowan, 44, who was allegedly raped by Harvey Weinstein at the Sudance Film Festival in 1997, said that someone close to the scandal-hit producer had made the offer in exchange for her signing a nondisclosure agreement.

Rose McGowan claims she was offered $1 million to keep her mouth shut about Harvey Weinstein.

'I figured I could probably have gotten him up to three. "Ew, gross, you're disgusting, I don't want your money, that would make me feel disgusting". "I have been slut-shamed. I knew right then that every word Rose told me was true, you could see it all over his face".

The win also continues the thoroughbred's 22 strong victory streak, having lost just three times throughout her 32 start career.

After the initial Times story mentioning McGowan's settlement was published, a lawyer for Weinstein said in a statement that the article is "saturated with false and defamatory statements" and that "No company ever talks about settlements, and neither does the recipient, so I don't know how the Times came to this conclusion, but it is pure conjecture; the reporters have made assumptions". McGowan is among the various women who have stepped forward with allegations of sexual abuse and assault against Weinstein in recent weeks. I have been harassed. I recall clearly what I said next, 'My God, why didn't you say anything?

"When I asked what she meant by that, and how could she possibly be blacklisted, she told me the horrifying story of what Harvey did to her seven years earlier", he added.

McGowan did not say Weinstein's name outright, though she did say that seeing "the monster's face" so much in news reports recently was hard for her.

He has denied allegations of unconsensual sex, apologized for past behavior against colleagues and has sought treatment.

During her remarks, McGowan called for more diversity in the entertainment industry and also described the danger of having so many men-especially men like Weinstein-making the decisions that impact women's careers, livelihoods, and identities.

"We are free. We are strong".

He said he was "inspired" to cast McGowan as a "bad ass" in the film, part of a double-feature co-helmed by Quentin Tarantino and distributed by Bob Weinstein's Dimension Films.
