Alyssa Milano forgives Rose McGowan for calling her ‘a lie’

Alyssa Milano has forgiven Rose Mcgowan for calling her “a lie”, because she believes her former Charmed co-star was “hurting” at the time.
The actress appeared on U.S. show Nightline to discuss her new book Brave, and she was asked if she was proud of her former co-star, who is credited with kickstarting the #MeToo campaign, which enables victims of sexual abuse to come forward, on social media when the scandal swept Hollywood in October (17).
Rose, who has claimed she was raped by disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein, responded, “I don’t like her” before explaining, “Cause I think she’s a lie.”
When asked why she thought that, the 44-year-old suggested that Alyssa may have ulterior motives for getting involved in the #MeToo campaign and the subsequent Time’s Up movement, which Rose says was created by officials at Creative Artists Agency (CAA), where Alyssa’s husband Dave Bugliari works.
Rose later clarified that she hadn’t just been talking about Alyssa, tweeting, “The lie is a system, not an individual.”
However, asked about the remarks at the UNICEF Ball on Saturday (14Apr18), Alyssa said she’s already moved on from the remark, because she knows it didn’t come from a place of hatred.
“(I don’t) see that as the same thing as hate,” she told Us Weekly. “I see that as a beautiful soul that was hurting so badly that she was talking from that hurt. And I understand.”
Rose isn’t the only person who has criticised Alyssa for her involvement in the Me Too movement. But the 45-year-old actress does her utmost not to worry about the negative remarks she frequently receives.
“I try not to let it affect me because I believe so much in what I fight for that I feel like the hate, and maybe this is just me spinning it in my own mind, the hate means that I’m actually doing something right,” she said. “So for me, I try not to pay too much attention to it. It gets hard some days, obviously.”
