Rose McGowan, Lena Dunham, Brie Larson and More React to Harvey Weinstein Sex Harassment Scandal

Amber Tamblyn and Judd Apatow are also among those condemning the movie mogul after he was exposed as a serial predator.

AceShowbiz - Actresses spoke out after Harvey Weinstein was exposed as a serial sexual predator. The likes of Rose McGowan, Lena Dunham, Brie Larson and Amber Tamblyn condemned the film producer and applauded the women who helped bring the case to light.

McGowan wrote on Twitter, "Women fight on. And to the men out there, stand up. We need you as allies. #bebrave." The 44-year-old actress went on, "Anyone who does business with __ is complicit. And deep down you know you are even dirtier. Cleanse yourselves."

Dunham tweeted, "The woman who chose to speak about their experience of harassment by Harvey Weinstein deserve our awe. It's not fun or easy. It's brave." She added, "Hollywood shines light on Catholic Church, sex trafficking- let's shine it on ourselves a second and what we've condoned."

Larson, an Oscar-winning actress who has been a vocal supporter of sexual assault victims, also blasted Weinstein as she wrote in a Twitter post, "As always, I stand with the brave survivors of sexual assault and harassment. It's not your fault. I believe you."

Tamblyn, who recently shared her own experience with sexual harassment and revealed about getting picked up by actor James Woods when she was 16, emphasized every word as she reacted to the scandal, "Heed the mantra and never forget: Women. Have. Nothing. To. Gain. And. Everything. To Lose. By. Coming. forward." She continued, "Stand with @AshleyJudd or give your legs to someone else. What she and others have just done is painful and difficult and triumphant."

Rose McGowan and Ashley Judd were among the women who received settlement from Harvey Weinstein. The Hollywood mogul lawyered up with Lisa Bloom after the scandal went public. "I came of age in the 60's and 70's, when all the rules about behavior and workplaces were different. That was the culture then," he defended himself. "I appreciate the way I've behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it."

Lena Dunham responded to Weinstein's half-hearted apology in another tweet, "Would have recommended at least 2 years as caged sub to a bunch of Bard gender studies profs before Weinstein issued that pathetic apology." Actor/director Judd Apatow was not impressed either as he wrote, "You are blaming growing up in the 70's? You haven't picked up anything since then?"

Back in 2016, Rose McGowan revealed about being raped by a studio head. She didn't report her rapist because a female attorney told her that she would never win against her rapist because she'd done a sex scene in a film.
