According to the New York Times, McGowan - who alleges that Weinstein raped her at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah in 1997 - was approached through her lawyer with an offer of $1 million, if she would sign a nondisclosure agreement and refuse to talk about the alleged incident.
"I had all these people I'm paying telling me to take it so that I could fund my art".
She responded by asking for $6 million, part counteroffer, part slow torture of her former tormentor, she said. But I was like - ew, gross, you're disgusting, I don't want your money, that would make me feel disgusting, ' said McGowan. He died eight years ago.
Though McGowan reached a settlement with Weinstein for $100,000 in 1997, she realized over the summer that the contract had not included a confidentiality clause. McGowan's lawyer, Paul Coggins, confirmed to The Times that the actress received the offer.
A representative for Weinstein has denied "any allegations of non-consensual sex".
When she arrived, she said the maître d' told her to meet Weinstein upstairs in his suite, where she remembers passing by two male assistants who she said "wouldn't look me in the eye". Though McGowan had previously revealed she was a rape survivor and that her assault was perpetrated by a powerful studio boss, she did not comment in the October 5 story.
But in the days following the initialreport, McGowan became one of the most vocal figures in Hollywood to lead the charge against the industry's apparent widespread mistreatment of women.
But in the months to come, Ms. McGowan did not feel supported by her management team.
Within a day of the Times publishing the story that would eventually lead the mogul to seek treatment, McGowan, 44, directed her lawyer to pull the offer. I have been slut-shamed, I have been harassed, I have been maligned, and you know what? On her way out, she said, he pointed out the hotel room's bath tub. I am just like you. When recalling starring in 2007's Grindhouse, which was distributed by Bob Weinstein's Dimension, McGowan said: "I was really lost at that point".
McGowan added that what happened to her and other women in the audience can not and "will not stand".
