McGowan, known for her involvement in the #MeToo movement, tweeted earlier today (August 17, 2020):
“Alexander Payne. You sat me down & played a soft-core porn movie you directed for Showtime under a different name. I still remember your apartment in Silverlake. You are very well-endowed. You left me on a street corner afterwards. I was 15.”
In a second tweet, she tweeted a photo of herself at 15 with the message:
“I just want an acknowledgment and an apology. I do not want to destroy. This was me at 15.”
The incident would have occurred around 1988, when Payne was 27.
As of yet, Payne has not responded.
