Having been among one of the first people to speak out against the disgraced movie mogul, the former ‘Charmed’ actress believes she would have had a better career.
AceShowbiz –Rose McGowan insists she would have had a “better career” if Harvey Weinstein didn’t “blacklist” her.
The actress was one of the first people to speak out against the disgraced movie mogul – who has been charged with multiple sex crimes and is currently in jail – and she believes she would have had more acting opportunities if she was “blacklisted” by Weinstein.
“I did one acting class after I started my first movie, after they discovered me,” she told Britain’s The Observer newspaper. “And I hated it. For me it was always fiscal; it was a matter of survival.”
“I just happen to be naturally good at it. Had I not been blacklisted by Weinstein I might have gone on to have a better career and probably spread my wings more in the acting department. But I had to take the crumbs that I could get. So I did as well as I could, despite the Hollywood blacklisting, which they’ve only doubled down on since the exposing and taking down of their cult leader.”
Former “Charmed” star Rose also explained she decided to shave her head before she spoke out about Weinstein as she thought people would hear her better if she “didn’t look like a traditional woman any more”.
“The side effect immediately was that people could hear the words coming out of my mouth, because I didn’t look like a traditional woman any more,” she said. “All of a sudden, people were paying attention. But it was also like, ‘I’m serious. And I’m going to war. And I need to scare people. So let’s go.’ “
