Former Charmed actresses Rose McGowan and Alyssa Milano have both become outspoken warriors against sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood — yet the Citizen Rose star is questioning Milano’s involvement in the cause.
“I don’t like her,” McGowan, 44, told Nightline co-anchor Juju Chang in an interview that aired Wednesday. “’Cause I think she’s a lie.”
“Do you think I don’t know these people?” she continued, pointing out that Milano’s husband, Dave Bugliari, is an agent. “Do the math. Who’s behind Time’s Up? CAA. Where do they meet? CAA? Who needs good PR? CAA. Who are part of the pimp problem? CAA.” (Milano is also friends with designer Georgina Chapman, the estranged wife of McGowan’s alleged sexual assailant, Harvey Weinstein.)
The Creative Artists Agency did not respond to Nightline’s request for comment, though Milano, 45, issued a statement supporting McGowan: “I am and always have been completely supportive of Rose and admire her bravery and speaking out about her experiences. My goal throughout the past few months with both #MeToo and the TimesUp movement has been to use my platform to give others a voice so we can all work together to stamp out sexual harassment and sexual assault.”
