Released this morning, Rose McGowan’s memoir “Brave” is a deeply personal, no-holds-barred look at the rampant abuse of power by men in Hollywood. The book delves into McGowan’s allegations against Harvey Weinstein, including an incident in 1997 that McGowan had not previously gone into detail about. The actress writes that at Sundance Film Festival that year, Weinstein—whom she exclusively refers to as “the Monster”—forced oral sex on her in a hotel room.
McGowan discusses the sexual and emotional abuse she experienced at the hands of other Hollywood men, including “Spy Kids” director Robert Rodriguez. She also chronicles her experiences growing up in the Children of God cult, which she was born into.
The first part of McGowan’s docu-series, “Citizen Rose,” airs on E! tonight.
