Streep defends herself against criticism
    2017-December-21  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

ACTRESS Meryl Streep has defended herself against criticism from Harvey Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan.

McGowan, who accused Weinstein of rape, tweeted her anger at plans for stars to wear black to the Golden Globes in a silent protest against sexual abuse.

“Actresses like Meryl Streep ... YOUR SILENCE is THE problem,” actress McGowan wrote in the now deleted tweet.

Streep responded by saying she “didn’t know” about Weinstein’s alleged behavior when she worked with him.

The movie mogul has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.

McGowan’s tweet in full said: “Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @goldenglobes in a silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa.”

Marchesa is the fashion line that the film producer started with his wife Georgina Chapman, who left him in October when the allegations emerged.

In Streep’s statement, given to the Huffington Post, the Oscar winner said she was “hurt” to be “attacked” by McGowan and said she “did not know” about Weinstein’s alleged abuse.

She said: “I have never in my life been invited to his hotel room.”

Streep added: “He needed me much more than I needed him and he made sure I didn’t know ...

“Rose assumed and broadcasted something untrue about me, and I wanted to let her know the truth,” she wrote, adding that she had passed on her phone number to McGowan through friends after seeing the tweet.

“I sat by the phone all day,” she wrote, adding: “I hoped that she would give me a hearing. She did not, but I hope she reads this. I am truly sorry she sees me as an adversary, because we are both, together with all the women in our business, standing in defiance of the same implacable foe.”

Streep worked with Weinstein on such films as “The Iron Lady” and “August: Osage County” and jokingly referred to him as “God” in a 2012 acceptance speech. (SD-Agencies)
