Rose McGowan Reveals the Real Reason Behind Her Plastic Surgery and Other Bombshells from Book

  Rose McGowan Reveals the Real Reason Behind Her Plastic Surgery and Other Bombshells from Book Rose McGowan isn’t holding back. The actress, known for speaking her mind, takes things to a new level in her deeply personal new book Brave, which gives readers an uncensored look at her personal life — including her triumphs and tribulations. From the emotional abuse she says she suffered on film sets to details of her alleged sexual assault at the hands of Harvey Weinstein and the truth behind her plastic surgery, McGowan exposes what she says is Hollywood’s exploitation of young actresses. Here are some of the biggest bombshells from Brave: She alleges Harvey Weinstein forced oral sex on her in a jacuzzi The actress, 44, opens up about the moment the former movie mogul allegedly assaulted her in 1997 at the Sundance Film Festival. She had previously accused Weinstein of rape on Twitter but had not gone into detail about the alleged incident. McGowan, who refers to Weinstein only as “the Monster” in the book, writes that she was sent up to his suite in Park City, Utah where she thought they were going to have a meeting about her blossoming career. Instead, she says Weinstein pulled her into a room with a jacuzzi and took her clothes off, causing McGowan to freeze “like a statue.” She then writes that the producer sat her on the side of the jacuzzi and performed oral sex on her while he masturbated, according to the NYT. “He moans loudly; through my tears I see his semen floating on top of the bubbles,” she writes.
