The American actress Rose McGowan has published on social networks the name of the director who abused her when she was 15 years old. The event was made public in 2018, during the effervescence of the MeToo movement, after the interview that the actress of ‘Scream and’ Charmed ‘, among others, had with Ronan Farrow. At the time, McGowan did not want to reveal the name of the adult who abused her as a teenager, but her testimony about the sexual abuse and assault she suffered by Harvey Weinstein was vital to prosecuting and convicting the producer. Now, two years later, the actress has broken her silence and directly pointed to Alexander Payne as the perpetrator of such abuses when she was a minor.
“I still remember your apartment in Silverlake,” McGowan reports on his Twitter account. In statements made to Farrow, author of the best-seller ‘Predators’ And a Pulitzer Prize winner for her research on sexual abuse in Hollywood, the actress noted that a film director had non-consensual sex with her when she was a teenager. At that time, she did not want to make the name public because she was not prepared to make an accusation, she says. The Hollywood Reporter.
