Rose McGowan Talks Matt Lauer, Jill Messick, Harvey Weinstein & More in 'THR'

Rose McGowan strikes a stunning pose on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s latest issue, on newsstands today.

Here’s what the 44-year-old Charmed actress had to share with the mag:

On her experience with the late Jill Messick: Harvey [Weinstein] attended the premiere of [Rose's film] Going All the Way, in which she has a topless scene. After it came onscreen, Rose claims, she saw her then-manager Jill turn and nod to the mogul. It was Jill who set up the meeting the next morning between Harvey and Rose at the Stein Eriksen Lodge that Rose says ended with her being sexually assaulted in a hot tub.

On Jill’s tragic suicide: “We need to look at the real person who’s behind this. That person has blood on his hands, and we all know, once again, who I’m talking about.” (The Messick family declines to comment further on Rose.)

On why she helped kill Ronan Farrow‘s NBC News story: “NBC took a lot of heat for killing the story. But I actually served Ronan with a cease and desist — two of them … I did not want my rape spoken about over breakfast cereal on the Today show. I’d heard about Matt Lauer. You can’t tell me the people at the top of NBC aren’t aware. Come on.”

… “I was never going to let my story be on NBC, but I wanted to ensure that the Times would do it, and everybody before had folded. So I pitted [Ronan] against The New York Times. I understand how men work and how Hollywood works and how power works. People are going to be much more interested in going down the line with something if they know they’re competing with somebody else.”

Matt Lauer Breaks Silence to Address Sexual Assault Allegations

Matt Lauer is speaking out for the first time in five months to address the sexual assault allegations against him.

The 60-year-old former Today host released a statement on Thursday (April 26) to address “false allegations” against him.

“I have made no public comments on the many false stories from anonymous or biased sources that have been reported about me over these past several months,” Matt told The Washington Post. “I remained silent in an attempt to protect my family from further embarrassment and to restore a small degree of the privacy they have lost.”

Matt was fired from the NBC morning show back in November 2017 for alleged inappropriate sexual behavior at work.

Matt continued: “But defending my family now requires me to speak up. I fully acknowledge that I acted inappropriately as a husband, father and principal at NBC. However I want to make it perfectly clear that any allegations or reports of coercive, aggressive or abusive actions on my part, at any time, are absolutely false.”

Ann Curry 'Not Surprised' By Matt Lauer Allegations, Says There Was a Climate of Harassment at NBC (Video)

Ann Curry, who used to be Matt Lauer‘s co-host on the Today show, is speaking out about an alleged culture of sexual harassment at NBC and the allegations brought up against Lauer.

While at CBS This Morning, Ann said of Matt, “I’m trying to do no harm in these conversations. I can tell you that I — I am not surprised by the allegations.”

“I can say that I would be surprised if — if — many women did not understand that there was a climate of verbal harassment that existed. I think it’d be surprising if someone said that they didn’t see that. So it was a verbal… sexual…,” Ann said.

Ann was then asked to clarify if there was a culture of sexual harassment while she was at NBC.

“I don’t wanna cause more pain. But no, I’m — you are asking me a very direct question. I’m an honest person. I wanna tell you that it was. Yes. Period,” Ann said.

Katie Couric Is Ready to Discuss Matt Lauer's Firing from 'Today'

Katie Couric previously said that she would speak out about Matt Lauer‘s firing from the Today show when she was ready, and that time is now.

The former Today co-host has released a statement about Matt‘s dismissal from the show for allegations of sexual misconduct.

“The whole thing has been very painful for me,” Katie told People. “The accounts I’ve read and heard have been disturbing, distressing and disorienting and it’s completely unacceptable that any woman at the Today show experienced this kind of treatment.”

“I had no idea this was going on during my tenure or after I left,” she continued. “I think I speak for many of my former colleagues when I say this was not the Matt we knew. Matt was a kind and generous colleague who treated me with respect. In fact, a joke I once made on late-night television was just that, because it was completely contrary to our brother-sister relationship. It’s still very upsetting. I really admire the way Savannah [Guthrie] and Hoda [Kotb] and the entire Today show staff have handled a very difficult situation.”

Katie once said that Matt “pinches me on the ass a lot” during an interview on Watch What Happens Live in 2012, but as she mentions in the statement, she was only joking.
