Actress Amber Tamblyn has called out her friend Rose Mc Gowan for criticizing the women reportedly planning a fashion-fueled protest at the Golden Globes.
Mc Gowan, who is chief among those accusing producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct and assault, called out the women who worked with the disgraced producer, including Meryl Streep, for saying they would wear black at the upcoming award show to protest gender inequality and sexual assault.
“Every activist for every cause the world over has different methods but share a common and more important message that should remain the same. I can get to places — and I'm talking in actor-speak now — but I can get to where I need to get faster now. I don't know who you think I am, but I audition for every part I get, almost across the board.
And undiluted above all else.”In response, Tamblyn contended that Mc Gowan’s statement “was public and hurtful to some women so a public response was earned.”“I spoke to her at length today, she knows how I feel. To be critical of an action is not to condemn the person behind it. I can understand when it's off, and I know it quicker; I know the signals and I'm better at redirecting it. If it's a part in a Steve Mc Queen movie with Michael Fassbender in it and Brad Pitt's producing it — odds are I'm not the only girl in town who wants that part, which means I'm going to have to fight like a lady haggling over a shoe at a Barneys sale.
Tamblyn has been an advocate for the women speaking out against sexual assault, but took issue with Mc Gowan’s credo, saying on Sunday that Mc Gowan was shaming those who planned to be proactive.“Rose Mc Gowan is a friend and while I support her kind of movement, I do not support any woman (or man) shaming or taunting the movements of other women who are trying to create change. This is beneath you, Rose,” the “Sisterhood of the the Traveling Pants” star wrote in a lengthy thread.“You don’t have to support and stand with us, but we stand and support you.
Weinstein said he cast him but allowed Backus “to amicably break his contact” to pursue a different opportunity.In March, Onfroy was released from jail after pleading no contest to charges of armed home invasion robbery and aggravated battery with a firearm. Onfroy was slated to perform at this weekend’s Rolling Loud festival in San Bernardino. 2 on the Billboard charts and yielded two Top 40 singles. According to Jackson, the actresses had been chosen to star in his “Lord of the Rings” franchise when it was still under the umbrella of Weinstein’s Miramax studio, but contended that Weinstein intervened in the late 1990s.“I recall Miramax telling us they were a nightmare to work with and we should avoid them at all costs,” Jackson told New Zealand’s Stuff on Thursday.“At the time, we had no reason to question what these guys were telling us — but in hindsight, I realize that this was very likely the Miramax smear campaign in full swing,” he said."I now suspect we were fed false information about both of these talented women — and as a direct result their names were removed from our casting list.”"I remember this well,” Judd tweeted Thursday night in response to Jackson’s interview.“Just seeing this after I awoke, I burst out crying,” Sorvino tweeted on Friday.And a black dress is just the beginning of the darkness that will be drained from every industry across the country by the time we’re done. Alas, Tamblyn’s commentary drew the ire of several followers, including Weinstein accuser Asia Argento and Mc Gowan’s “Charmed” costar Holly Marie Combs, both of whom said Tamblyn should have spoken to Mc Gowan directly rather than calling her out in a public forum.(Tamblyn said she spoke to Mc Gowan “for over an hour.”)“You just did to @rosemcgowan what you claim you don't support her doing to others,” Combs tweeted.
