Can a casting decision be an act of resistance?
Rose McGowan‘s ex-boyfriend Robert Rodriguez thinks so.
The "Scream" actress claims that Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein raped her during the 1997 Sundance Film Festival.
Rodriquez decided to cast McGowan in "Grindhouse" after hearing about the incident.
Rodriguez said he was “inspired” to cast McGowan as a “badass” character to get back at her alleged assailant.
