Rose is wearing a white tubedress. She seems to be sitting on a bed. Hmm, perhaps she will take her dress off and get into bed.
The second eldest of six children, Rose McGowan was born to a French mother and Irish father, who were part of a hippy commune called "The Children of God", based in Italy. Eventually, the family left Europe when Rose was nine, putting down roots in the western United States.
But life was not easy for the headstrong young girl, and after saving up some money from odds jobs, she ran away at thirteen for Los Angeles in hopes of becoming an actress. But below the glamour and glitz of Tinseltown, Rose sometimes found herself sleeping on the streets, or if she was lucky, in nightclubs after hours.
After hammering the sidewalks doing the audition circuit, Rose landed a small part in the comedy "Encino Man" opposite Brendan Fraser, but it was in 1994 that fate would turn a kind eye towards the five foot three beauty when she was spotted by a casting agent on an L.A. sidewalk. The chance meeting led to her being cast as the angry young lead in Gregg Araki's "The Doom Generation".
The film opened to mixed reviews and a fair amount of controversy, but nevertheless, it helped to expose McGowan to a larger audience, and aided in establishing a fair sized fanbase. Several films followed, but as with so many of its youngs stars, it was the teen thriller "Scream" which shot Rose into the mainstream of public awareness. The sexy, dark haired ingenue was on her way to the stardom she had always dreamed of.
Over the years, Rose dated a number of fellow thespians, including Ryan Phillippe and Matthew Lillard, but in 1998 she met shock-rocker Marilyn Manson, whom she later married in 1999. When Rose was 15, she was pretty much on her own. Over the years, she had a variety of jobs and often had to lie about her age in order to get them. She worked as a waitress, sales clerk, ticket taker and other minimum wage jobs. She was even forced to live on the streets for a while. Rose's first acting opportunity came in 1992's Encino Man, but it was over three years before she did any other roles.
Her first real break came while she was in L.A. to attend arts school and Gregg Araki met her outside of a gym and decided to cast her in his Sundance entry, Doom Generation. Despite the fact that most of her fame has come from more commercial films like Scream, Bio-Dome and Phantoms, most of her roles have been independent productions, and she is often compared to indie-queen Parker Posey.
McGowan enjoys making movies but her real interest lies with traditional art. Unlike her father the artist, Rose is not interested in creating but would rather be a curator and revive museums. She hates the way so many museums have become archaic and unfriendly to younger people. She dreams of opening them up so that the average person can connect to the art within.
