Rodriguez, who met McGowan at the Cannes Film Festival in 2005 and dated her off and on until 2009 (he separated from his wife in 2006), revealed in October that he knew what Weinstein had allegedly done to Rose. When they met, he recounted in >Variety, she expressed her admiration for Sin City and said she wished she could've auditioned. He asked why she didn't.
"She said that she couldn't because she had been blacklisted from working on any Weinstein movies," Rodriguez wrote. "When I asked what she meant by that, and how could she possibly be blacklisted, she told me the horrifying story of what Harvey did to her seven years earlier."
"Rose told me that all she could do at the time was to get Harvey Weinstein to donate money to an abused women's shelter and in return she had to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) that forbade her from talking about the horrific violation without being sued, and that she shouldn't even be telling me. To add insult to injury, she told me that she was blacklisted from even auditioning for any Weinstein movies."
The filmmaker wrote that he never spoke out about what he knew to not cause her any trouble with the NDA.
Rodriguez said he enthusiastically cast her as a badass heroine in Grindhouse—which was distributed by Weinstein Company shingle Dimension Films—as a pointed act of defiance, and he concluded that the production was plagued with problems that Weinstein created on purpose. Pretending to introduce McGowan and Weinstein when they saw the producer that very night at the party they were at, he observed Harvey's reaction and "I knew right then that every word Rose told me was true, you could see it all over his face."
