Rose McGowan Tweets About Alleged Rape By Unnamed 'Studio Head'

"My ex sold our movie to my rapist for distribution."

Rose McGowan isn't staying silent about her alleged rape.

The 43-year-old "Charmed" actress joined last week's #WhyWomenDontReport movement on Twitter, where women shared tragic details of not reporting their sexual assaults and rape experiences to police.

Actress and filmmaker Rose McGowan speaks at the 54th New York Film Festival.

McGowan shared her own story, and the details are shocking.

"A (female) criminal attorney said because I'd done a sex scene in a film I would never win against the studio head. #WhyWomenDontReport," the actress tweeted. "Because it's been an open secret in Hollywood/Media & they shamed me while adulating my rapist. #WhyWomenDontReport."

The "Grindhouse" star also said her ex at the time sold their movie to her alleged rapist for distribution.

McGowan hinted at her alleged rape in a 2015 interview with Buzzfeed. Discussing allegations against Bill Cosby, she said, "It’s happened to me.”
