Amber Tamblyn Responds to Rose McGowan's Criticism of Black Dress Protest

The Oscar victor explained that Weinstein distributed movies she had made with other people and said "not every actor, actress, and director who made films that HW distributed knew" about his alleged wrongdoings. Rose said Meryl happily worked for "The Pig Monster", and said her silence was part of the problem. "You'll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change", said McGowan. I despise your hypocrisy.

McGowan also sarcastically suggested that maybe the actresses should just show up to the awards in Marchesa gowns (Marchesa being the label co-founded by Harvey Weinstein's wife, Georgina Chapman).

McGowan was one of the first women to step forward and claim that Weinstein had abused her, after stories in The New York Times and The New Yorker reported decades of sexual harassment and sexual assault, reportedly reaching private settlements with eight women.

When Streep was asked directly by Extra if she'd be protesting at the Globes, Streep replied: "I don't know".

Streep added: "He needed me much more than I needed him and he made sure I didn't know". McGowan previously received a hefty payout from Harvey Weinstein to keep quiet about what had happened to her.

But speaking out this weekend landed her in some hot water with her friend and fellow actress Amber Tamblyn.

The paper was able to uncover information about it through a series of interviews and government document requests. Elizondo said the only thing that had ended was the effort's government funding, which dried up in 2012.

Even Meryl Streep knows how to clap back in style! But not every actor, actress, and director who made films that HW distributed knew he abused women, or that he raped Rose in the Nineties, other women before and others after, until they told us.

I have never in my life been invited to his hotel room. And I hoped that she would give me a hearing.

Although McGowan called out Streep, she hasn't confirmed if she plans to participate in any such protest. "Just wearing black dresses doesn't halt anything and the offenders aren't going to care about all-black ensemble, but they'd care if the women refused to make money for them #hitthemwhereithurts", said one person in reply to McGowan's tweet.

McGowan took issue with Streep then too, sharing an article on Twitter and wrote, "No, Meryl, IT'S A F--ING CRIME".

Damon said: "I do believe that there's a spectrum of behaviour and we're going to have to figure, you know, there's a difference between patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation", he said.
