Rose McGowan trashes former Charmed co-star Alyssa Milano: ‘I don’t like her… I think she’s a lie’

Rose McGowan gave her unflinching opinion of her former “Charmed” co-star Alyssa Milano, stating simply that she thinks the actress “is a lie.”

McGowan, who vocally and publicly denounced former Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein last year, is critical of Milano and questions the veracity of the actress’s involvement with the Times Up and Me Too movements.

Milano “gets a lot of credit for helping Times Up go viral,” Juju Chang said to McGowan during a “Nightline” interview on Wednesday.

“So?” the actress responded, shrugging.

“Are you proud of her?” Chang asked, unsure of where McGowan was headed.

“I don’t like her,” the 44-year-old actress and star of the E! documentary series, “Citizen Rose” said. “Cause I think she’s a lie.”

“Do you think I don’t know these people? I’m not looking at this from the outside,” she continued.

“I have a lot of experience. I know she’s married to a CAA agent,” she said, referring to Milano’s agent husband David Bugliari and the Creative Artists Agency. “DO the math. Who’s behind Time’s Up? CAA. Where do they meet? CAA. Who needs good PR? CAA. Who are part of the pimp problem? CAA.”

When Chang pointed out the people McGowan was referring to are “very powerful,” the actress agreed.

“They are. So am I,” she said.

Milano, who co-starred with McGowan on “Charmed” for five seasons from 2001 to 2006, responded in a statement to “Nightline,” according to Us Magazine.

“I am and always have been completely supportive of Rose and admire her bravery and speaking out about her experiences,” Milano said. “My goal throughout the past few months with both #MeToo and the TimesUp movement has been to use my platform to give others a voice so we can all work together to stamp out sexual harassment and sexual assault.”

McGowan has called out Milano before, blasting her for her ‘deafening’ silence on Weinstein.

She took to Twitter Thursday to defend herself after backlash to her interview Wednesday with Stephen Colbert on the “Late Show.”

“You’re comfortable with discomfort,” the host stated, to which McGowan agreed. While she spent just a moment talking about being the “architect” of Weinstein’s downfall as she was the first to publicly accuse him of rape, McGowan then went on a disconnected talk about suits, khakis and Bible stories.

“Here’s the strangest thing: There’s nothing about what you just said …” Colbert interjected before McGowan finished “… that’s wrong! But they’ll make me seem crazy for saying it.”

She responded to criticism of her interview with a series of tweets, explaining “I am unusual, that IS the point.”
