Rose McGowan says Harvey Weinstein offered her $1 million to sign NDA

It comes after Rose admitted she has found it hard to watch news coverage of the Harvey Weinstein scandal as she finds it very "triggering".

McGowan, 44, who was allegedly raped by Harvey Weinstein at the Sudance Film Festival in 1997, said that someone close to the scandal-hit producer had made the offer in exchange for her signing a nondisclosure agreement.

Though the actress, also known for her role on WB series "Charmed", reached a settlement with Weinstein for $100,000 in 1997, she realized this past summer their agreement didn't include a confidentiality clause.

McGowan tells the Times she had many people encourage her to take the money because her personal funds had grown thin (she both had stopped acting and had to pay for her late father's health bills).

The "Charmed" actress - who has alleged that the 65-year-old producer raped her - says she was offered the hefty amount by someone close to the filmmaker and whilst she initially upped it to $6 million as a counter offer, she chose to retract that offer after all. "I figured I could probably have gotten him up to three", she said. "In any case, I resembled - ew, net, you're nauseating, I don't need your cash, that would influence me to feel sickening".

In another bombshell report that came out in the New York Times on Saturday, Rose McGowan claimed through her lawyer that Weinstein offered her the incredible sum of money right before the initial damning sexual harassment report ran in the paper a few weeks ago, hoping she would chose to keep quiet by getting paid off. McGowan's lawyer confirmed to the Times that the offer existed.

McGowan told attendees, "I have been silenced for 20 years".

"The triggering has been insane - the monster's face everywhere, my nightmare", she said.

In response to the deleterious accusations, Weinstein and his attorneys-at-law said in a statement he "unequivocally denies" all of the claims outright and he believes they were consensual.
