Actress Rose McGowan called Ben Affleck out on Twitter Tuesday for allegedly lying about his knowledge of Harvey Weinstein's history of sexual harassment with women in Hollywood. McGowan claims Affleck had informed her of his knowledge of Weinstein's habits, contrary to his public statement on the matter claiming otherwise.

"I am saddened and angry that a man who I worked with used his position of power to intimidate, sexually harass and manipulate many women over decades," Affleck said in a statement on Twitter about Weinstein Tuesday. "The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick. This is completely unacceptable."

Affleck added, "I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this doesn't happen to others. We need to do better at protecting our sisters, co-workers, friends and daughters."

Following Affleck's statement, McGowan told the actor to "f—k off" in a tweet. The "Charmed" alum then claimed that Affleck revealed he knew about Weinstein's history of alleged harassment prior to last week's damning reports and told her: "'Godd—it! I told him to stop doing that.'"

"You said that to my face... You lie," McGowan wrote.

McGowan also called out Affleck's friend and frequent collaborator Matt Damon. The actress questioned Damon on Twitter Monday, saying, "What's it like to be a spineless profiteer who stays silent?"

Damon spoke with Deadline Tuesday about Weinstein's highly-publicized controversy. The actor claimed he would have "stopped it" from happening if he had known.

"If there was ever an event that I was at and Harvey was doing this kind of thing and I didn’t see it, then I am so deeply sorry, because I would have stopped it," he told Deadline.

Damon, however, was cited by TheWrap founder Sharon Waxman Tuesday as the reason for a reported exposé about Weinstein's alleged history of sexual harassment being scrapped at the New York Times in 2004. Waxman said she experienced "intense pressure from Weinstein," which included phone calls from Damon and Russell Crowe.

McGowan reportedly reached a $100,000 settlement with Weinstein out of court, the New York Times revealed Oct. 5 in an exposé that detailed the movie mogul's nearly three decades of alleged sexual harassment. McGowan has been the most vocal actress on the Weinstein controversy.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie, among other actresses who weren't featured in the New York Times article, have also come forward detailing incidents of alleged sexual harassment from Weinstein.
