Rose McGowan has recently disclosed that Alexander Payne had been indulged in sexual misconduct with her when she was merely a 15-years-old teenager. Well, to this Alexander Payne has shared a long post rubbishing all the allegations leveled against him.
Rose wrote about the incident which took place when she was just a teenager on Twitter and said, “Alexander Payne. You sat me down & played a soft-core porn movie you directed for Showtime under a different name. I still remember your apartment in Silverlake. You are very well-endowed. You left me on a street corner afterward. I was 15.”
She shared her previous photo of her 15 years old face and said that she wants an apology. “I just want an acknowledgment and an apology. I do not want to destroy. This was me at 15.”
Well, in an article, Alexander denied all the allegation and wrote, “Rose McGowan and I have always had very cordial interactions, and I have admired her commitment to activism and her voice is an important, historic movement. However, what she has said about me in recent social media posts is simply untrue. I was a full-time film student at UCLA from 1984 until 1990.” Instead, the director said he met McGowan in 1991 during his “first directing job, when she auditioned for a comic short I was making for a Playboy Channel series. I had no reason to question how old she was, since the role she read for required an actor who was of age. We later went out on a couple of dates and remained on friendly terms for years. While I cannot allow false statements about events twenty-nine years ago to go uncorrected, I will continue to wish only the best for Rose.”
Apparently, he tried to picture that he didn’t meet Rose at all when she was 15-years-old, according to sources.
However to this, Rose replied that Alexander is lying and reiterated, “I told Payne to acknowledge and apologize, he has not. I said I didn’t want to destroy, now I do. Why do these men always lie? I will now make it a mission to expose him. I am not the only one.”
