The 44-year-old was one of the first women to publicly allege that Harvey Weinstein raped her.
McGowan was taking in some much needed R&R and time away from the media storm surrounding the embattled movie mogul.
The Charmed star has canceled a forthcoming appearance at a Kansas film festival where she was due to receive an award for her directorial debut in the 2014 short film Dawn.
The Tallgrass Film Festival said on their website: We are sorry to announce that we’ve just been informed that Rose McGowan, this years recipient of the Ad Astra Award, has canceled all upcoming public appearances due to compounding factors surrounding recent revelations in the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment case."
“While we’re disappointed that Rose cannot be here with us in person, we understand that her well being is the priority. We support her and our thoughts are with her. We’ll seize this opportunity to amplify her message and celebrate all the women filmmakers with works here at the 15th annual festival,” wrote Tallgrass creative director Lela Meadow-Conner.
As Radar readers know, McGowan was one of the first women to speak out against Harvey Weinstein for his alleged sexual misconduct.
She claimed she was “raped” by the Hollywood producer, and that he even paid her a settlement in 1997.
Weinstein’s lawyer claimed all non-consensual sex allegations against the producer are untrue.
