KEY POINTS

  • Rose McGowan has an estimated net worth of $3 million
  • The actress recently accused Oprah Winfrey of being “fake”
  • Winfrey has amassed a massive $2.5 billion fortune 

Rose McGowan is an actress and activist who is famous for her role in the 1996 horror film “Scream” and for winning Time’s 2017 Person of the Year Award for speaking out about sexual assault and harassment.

The Hollywood star recently took a shot at Oprah Winfrey, calling the host a fake who supported a power structure for her own benefit. McGowan noted that the billionaire host was friends with convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein and was linked to Russell Simmons, who is facing several rape and sexual misconduct allegations.

The two have also been in conflict over the Time’s Up movement, which sought to fight back against sexual abuse and harassment. Winfrey reportedly donated $500,000 to the movement while McGowan believed that it was founded on lies, Fox News reported.

Tina Tchen, the CEO and president of Time’s Up, was reported to have provided guidance to former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo during the investigation of his alleged sexual harassment cases. The official was allegedly involved in Cuomo’s draft letter where he denied the accusations against him.

McGowan, who has an estimated net worth of $3 million, which is about 0.12% of Winfrey’s massive $2.5 billion net worth as of Aug. 31, 2021, appeared in movies such as “The Black Dahlia'' in 2006 and “Machete” in 2010.

She has been speaking out against sexual abuse for years after allegedly being raped by Weinstein in 1997. McGowan was reportedly paid $130,000 as settlement for the case, as per Celebrity Net Worth.

On the other hand, Winfrey, the host of “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” has built an empire and reportedly earns about $300 million per year. When her hit talk show debuted in 1985, the host had an estimated net worth of $500,000. This amount doubled in 1989 and reached half a million dollars in 1995. In 2000, Winfrey finally passed the $1 billion net worth mark and her fortune has continued to grow since then.

She became the first black female billionaire, and she has now become the fourth richest celebrity worldwide. Winfrey also took the 12th spot on the list of richest self-made women in 2021, as per Forbes.
