Robert Rodriguez Put Rose McGowan in 'Grindhouse' as Revenge Against Harvey Weinstein

Robert Rodriguez is revealing the truth behind his casting of Rose McGowan in his movie, Grindhouse.

The 49-year-old director revealed in a statement published on Variety on Friday (October 27) that he knew about the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault allegations made by the 44-year-old actress, who he dated from 2006 to 2009 – and casting Rose as the “bad ass” in his 2007 film was Robert‘s way of exacting revenge against the film producer.

“I told Rose that she was not blacklisted from MY movies and that Harvey couldn’t tell me who to cast,” he wrote. “I then revealed to Rose right then and there that I was about to start writing a movie with Quentin Tarantino, a double feature throwback to 70′s exploitation movies, and that if she was interested, I would write her a BAD ASS character and make her one of the leads.”

He also spoke out in support of the women who have come forward with their own stories: “Once someone like Harvey Weinstein strikes, the waves, ripple effects, and the collateral damage that takes place are far-reaching, unstoppable, and unending. Once a predator strikes, it’s simply too late. We have to stop these actions from happening to begin with through education, harsher consequences, and zero tolerance.”

Rose McGowan Addresses Abuse in Hollywood at Women's Convention: 'It's Time to Clean House'

Rose McGowan is taking a stand at the Women’s Convention in Detroit, Michigan.

The 44-year-old condemned sexual abusers at the event on Friday (October 27) in her first speech since the Harvey Weinstein scandal exploded in the media earlier this month.

“I have been silenced for 20 years. I have been slut-shamed. I have been harassed. I’ve been maligned. And you know what? I’m just like you…because what happened to me behind the scenes happens to all of us in this society and that cannot stand and it will not stand,” she said.

“Hollywood may seem like it’s an isolated thing, but it is not. It is the messaging system for your mind. It is the mirror that you’re given to look into. This is what you are as a woman. This is what you are as a man. This is what you are as a boy. Girl. Gay. Straight. Transgender. But it’s all told through 96 percent males in the Directors Guild of America. That statistic has not changed since 1946, so we are given one view. And I know the men behind that view. And they should not be in your mind and they should not be in mind. It’s time to clean house.”

The 44-year-old actress, who is one of the most vocal celebrities involved in the unraveling of the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal, called out Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and Amazon Studios in a series of fiery tweets.

“I told the head of your studio that HW raped me. Over & over I said it. He said it hadn’t been proven. I said I was the proof,” she revealed.

“I had already sold a script I wrote to your studio, it was in development. When I heard a Weinstein bailout was in the works. I forcefully begged studio head to do the right thing. I was ignored. Deal was done. Amazon won a dirty Oscar. I called my attorney & said I want to get my script back, but before I could, #2 @amazonstudios called to say my show was dead. I am calling on you to stop funding rapists, alleged pedos and sexual harassers. I love @amazon but there is rot in Hollywood.”

“Be the change you want to see in the world. Stand with truth,” she added.
