For months, the 44-year-old actress has been speaking out on social media in an effort to combat sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood after alleging that Harvey Weinstein raped her. Now, McGowan is sharing even more of her story in E!'s five-part documentary, Citizen Rose.
"I was in the middle of my second movie for his company and I get assaulted and I decided not to stay silent," the Charmed star says of the alleged incident that occurred between herself and Weinstein in a new promo. "I knew others were out there and I knew it was a lot of us."
McGowan continues, "Being brave doesn't mean your ankles don't shake and that you're not scared. I wish I had more middle fingers."
Just prior to the release of the trailer for her upcoming documentary, McGowan tweeted: "I have been shooting footage for my documentary for three years. I have been working on my album and book for three years. My skincare line for 12 years. And I have been working on my whistle blowing and taking the motherf**king Monster down for 20 years. Now do you get it? #RoseArmy."
Citizen Rose airs Jan. 30 at 8 p.m., following the release of McGowan's memoir, Brave.
In addition to her new documentary and book, the outspoken actress was also included in Time magazine's "Person of the Year," which honored a group of "silence breakers" for their courage in speaking out against sexual misconduct.
"We're running out of time. I don't have time to play nice," she told the publication. "Why not fight back? What else are we doing?"
