Rose McGowan ''tried to buy a billboard'' to give herself a voice after making a settlement with Harvey Weinstein.

The 'Charmed' actress agreed to take a sum of money from the disgraced movie producer in exchange for her silence over allegations he raped her.

She said: ''I tried to buy a billboard. It was my only way of saying, 'I didn't like this, I didn't want this.' It was my only form of voice. I have a lot of people who say, 'You took the money.' Let me tell you, the only perfect rape victim is a dead victim. And that is a fact and it is sad. It is not on us. We were just walking on the street.''

And Rose feels grateful that she is able to talk about it now and credited social media sites like Twitter for allowing that kind of conversation to take place.

Speaking on Good Morning America, she added: ''It's nice being able to speak for myself. Every interview I did for so many years started with, 'What was it like to work with this man?' Well, it's exactly like what you'd think.''

Weinstein has denied all counts of non-consensual sex and his attorney said in a statement at the time: ''Mr. Weinstein denies Rose McGowan's allegations of non-consensual sexual contact. It is erroneous and irresponsible to conflate claims of inappropriate behavior and consensual sexual contact later regretted, with an untrue claim of rape.''
