Things got incredibly strange rather quickly when Rose McGowan appeared on Wednesday’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”.
McGowan, 44, who has been busy promoting her new memoir “Brave”, donned a bright orange hoodie for the interview, with her immediately telling the host that she doesn’t like suits because they “make people uncomfortable.”
She went on, “I think psychologically they make people insane. Your arms are T-rexed.”
Talk then turned to Harvey Weinstein, whom McGowan accused of rape last year. The disgraced filmmaker has since been accused of sexual misconduct by over 90 women.
Colbert told the actress: “Here’s the thing about you. Six months ago, before you and other people had the courage and bravery to come out and talk about Harvey Weinstein–” to which she interrupted: “Mine was a year ago. I was the architect. But I didn’t talk… I wanted them to have a voice.”
Colbert continued, “If six months ago, you had said, ‘Listen, man, I was being surveilled by Mossad agents in the pay of Harvey Weinstein,’ we would have gone ‘That’s cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs.’ But now we know that’s what happened. Did you ever think that you were crazy for thinking that?”
McGowan immediately hit back: “No. I always knew it was everybody else. No, I see things.”
The star then attempted to move the conversation along to mention how “colourful” things were on a recent trip to India, urging people to “shake it up” or they “may die sooner than they think.”
Unsurprisingly, the bizarre chat sparked quite the reaction on social media, with many mentioning how “weird” the whole thing was.
