Meryl Streep has spent decades pretty much being the most un-slammable celebrity in Hollywood - unless you include Donald Trump's searing insight into the actresses' acting prowess - but Rose McGowan is now taking aim at Streep for what she considers to be her hypocritical stance regarding Harvey Weinstein.

The bold statement came out days after a source told that 'all female actresses attending the Globes are protesting by just wearing black gowns'. I despise your hypocrisy.

When actress and producer Holly Marie Combs called out Tamblyn for doing to McGowan "what you claim you don't support her doing to others", Tamblyn retweeted Combs' comment and defended herself, saying that McGowan's "statement was public and hurtful to some women so a public response was earned". She said: 'I just wanna thank my agent Kevin Huvane and God, Harvey Weinstein, the punisher, Old Testament, I guess'.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star went on to assure one concerned fan she had spoken to McGowan as well, adding: "She knows how I feel".

McGowan was reacting to reports that a group of actresses will wear black on the red carpet of the 2017 Golden Globe Awards as part of a "silent protest" to condemn sexual harassment and rape in show business.

Streep said she "wasn't deliberately silent" in Weinstein's treatment of women in Hollywood because she didn't know it was happening. Since then, she has called out the deeply ingrained patriarchy in Hollywood, and has extended support to other women, asking them to speak up.

Over 50 women have accused Weinstein of sexual assault.

She also pointed out that Weinstein was more of a producer and marketer of movies, rather than a filmmaker, meaning that not every actor associated with him knew details about his personal life.

The beloved actress explained that she only entered Weinstein's office back in 1998 one time and it was for a meeting with Music of the Heart director Wes Craven.

She revealed that she even tried to reach out to McGowan, but her attempts proved unsuccessful.
