Actress Rose McGowan says Ben Affleck knew all about Harvey Weinstein's behavior, despite his statement.

"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 about Weinstein Tuesday. "The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick."

McGowan has a response: "Ben Affleck f--- off," she tweeted Tuesday.

Last week, The New York Times reported that McGowan had reached a $100,000 settlement with movie executive Harvey Weinstein when she was 23, after an "episode in a hotel room at the Sundance Film Festival." McGowan is part of a torrent of stories and accusations surrounding Weinstein this past week, spanning decades and including both sexual harassment and assault.

On Tuesday, McGowan tweeted that at a press conference she was made to go to "after [the] assault," Affleck had something to say.

"Goddamnit! I told him to stop doing that," McGowan tweeted that Affleck "said to [her] face" at the time.

She added about Affleck, "You lie."

Here was Affleck's full statement on Weinstein:

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. The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick. This is completely unacceptable, and 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, friends, co-workers and daughters. We must support those who come forward, condemn this type of behavior when we see it and help ensure there are more women in positions of power.

Representatives for Affleck were not immediately available to comment.
