I was fed this idea that being an actress was everyone’s dream except that it wasn’t mine. Directing, on the other hand, comes so naturally for me. I love creating and having a voice. My personality hasn’t changed – I’ve just opened my mouth and spoken. I didn’t have a platform for that before.
-Rose McGowan

Rose McGowan is featured on the front cover of the October 2015 issue of Prestige Hong Kong with a gorgeous new shoot and a super interesting interview. You can read on for the interview and check out the photoshoot in the gallery.

A Woman’s Worth

Film and television star ROSE MCGOWAN spent the last few years out of the spotlight before recently emerging as an unofficial spokesperson for female empowerment. DIVIA HARILELA meets her in New York

One of the most iconic images of Rose McGowan was taken at the MTV Video Music Awards in 1998. The sultry actress, who was dating rocker Marilyn Manson at the time, caused an uproar when she walked down the red carpet in a see-through chain-mesh dress with her backside hanging out in full view. Seventeen years on and McGowan couldn’t be more different. She walks in unnoticed at the trendy Standard Hotel in New York City, which is buzzing thanks to Fashion Week. Her long dark locks have been replaced with a messy boy cut and she’s wearing a simple white shirt, black jeans, trainers and a backpack. She looks more like a cool art student than a famous Hollywood starlet.

Born in Florence, Italy to hippy parents, McGowan moved to the United States when she was 10 and later ended up in Los Angeles, where she was discovered by a Hollywood agent at 17. She made her debut on the big screen in the film The Doom Generation, which quickly garnered her an Independent Spirit Award nomination. Soon she was starring in high-profile films directed by the likes of Wes Craven and Quentin Tarantino, and appearing on the cover of Rolling Stone. By the mid 1990s she became a part of American pop culture thanks to her starring role in the popular TV series Charmed. A few years later, after sustaining several injuries on movie sets, McGowan decided to take a break from Hollywood and disappeared from the big screen altogether. The period that followed was one that she has referred to publicly as “traumatic and life changing”.

Rose has just released a striking new music video for her first official single “RM486.” The star teams up with Spun director Jonas Åkerlund and is styled by Swedish fashion maverick B. Åkerlund.

Styled as a gorgeous, white alien shuffling between eccentric costumes that range from fetish goth to fallen angel chic — it’s a fitting video for the eerie piano ballad accentuated only by the subtle synth line and reverb-y vocals. Watch the haunting video below and prepare to have your breath taken away.

A look at the inimitable actor’s first musical performance

Rose McGowan is done with being told what to do. Having called out the film industry for sexism and left her acting career behind, The Doom Generationstar returned to Hollywood earlier this year with guns blazing – this time from the other side of the camera. After shooting her arresting directorial debut, the Sundance Award-nominated short Dawn, the actor-turned-director has teamed up with Spun director Jonas Åkerlund, enlisting his signature gothic vision for her unanticipated pop promo in the form of RM486.

Styled by Swedish fashion maverick B. Åkerlund, each of McGowan’s theatrical guises represents a different facet of the star’s morphing persona: from alien outsider (“Not only did I not fit in, I didn’t want to fit in,” she says of her formative years) to Hollywood starlet and beyond. Each persona carries a message, with the goth confronting people’s perception of beauty: “I actually think she’s the most beautiful,” McGowan says. Here the actor-turned director talks rocking the boat and kicking up an art fuss.

This release marks your musical debut, why now?
Rose McGowan:
In the last few years I’ve actually released some songs under different names, just me pranking the public. I woke up one day and realised I hated acting and that I’d always hated it. Imagine, its predominantly men whose scripts get done so it was mostly a male voice coming out of my mouth for fifteen years.

Bobby Caruso of VH1 wrote an article on Rose. Be sure to take a read!

Rose McGowan burst onto the scene in 1996 with Scream, then won over countless fans as the most sharp-tongued and sarcastic spirit animal sister in Charmed. After a high-profile relationship with Marilyn Manson, and a series of notable magazine covers, McGowan seemed nearly unstoppable. Fast forward to 2015, and she found herself fired by her agent and nearly blacklisted from Tinsel Town.

OK, let’s rewind a bit. Rose grew up in Italy as part of a religious cult known as Children of God, but moved to America at 10. By 15, she had already left home as a newly emancipated teen hoping to make it big in Los Angeles. As her Hollywood career began, McGowan became eponymous with a young sex symbol in Hollywood. She was funny, cool, and intelligent.

Then on June 18 of this year, McGowan tweeted a casting note for a script she received that was pretty, well, f’d up.

Wes Craven, the director who gave the world A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Scream franchise, and The Hills Have Eyes, has passed away at the age of 76 after enduring a private battle with brain cancer. Wes Craven has become synonymous with genre bending and innovative horror, challenging audiences with his bold vision. Rose of coursed starred as Tatum Riley in 1996’s Scream. As huge fan’s of Craven’s and the Scream film, we are deeply saddened by this loss and our deepest condolences go out to Mr. Craven’s loved ones.

For many of us, Scream is what introduced us to Rose McGowan, and although Tatum only appears in one film, her iconic character is still a fan favorite and one of the more memorable roles in all of the series. Rose sent out the following tweets after Craven’s family posted the announcement on his Twitter.

“Shedding tears now. A giant has left us. #wescraven #always #liveon

Thank you for being the kindest man, the gentlest man, and one of the smartest men I’ve known. Please say there’s a plot twist. #wescraven

On a personal note, as a huge horror fan, I am crushed by the news. So much of my youth was actually shaped by characters introduced by Craven. In 1997 I was introduced to horror films with a double feature screening of I Know What You Did Last Summer and Scream 2. That day my intense love of horror began. I still remember watching Scream for the first time, I remember being scared of Freddy Kruger and my uncle singing me “1, 2, Freddy’s coming for you…”. I remember looking for all the various Scream VHS box covers in every store we were in. If you are a lover of horror you know what an impact this man had on the genre and ultimately reinventing it with its cliches being brought to the surface with Scream. He gave us one of the most frightening (and cool) baddies with Freddy. Then he flipped the script and gave us a reinvention with A New Nightmare. Let us not forget his first film The Last House on the Left is one of the most brutal and scary films well before intensely brutal horror films became the thing. He gave us Freddy Kruger, Ghostface, Tatum Riley, Sidney Prescott, Nancy Thompson and let’s not forget he introduced us to a then unknown Johnny Depp!

His imagination and films will live on with us forever. Rest in pieces, Mr. Craven. 🔪

“What I’ve tried to do is make movies where I can honestly say I haven’t seen that before.” – Wes Craven

Wes Craven RIP

Rose McGowan knows three versions of herself through and through: the woman she is, the woman you thought of her as, and the woman she’s becoming. The former is a staunch feminist, articulate and no-holds barred. The latter is a filmmaker with what many are finding to be surprising depth and vision. It’s that middle one—that pesky version that for years shaded McGowan in every color but gray. That’s the one she ran away from seven years ago, that’s the one that she’s making sure never comes back.

We speak the day after the Golden Globes, which she was slated to attend until her body went into what she calls a “psychosomatic seizure” that debilitated her. Considering the alternative—hobnobbing with industry elite and foreign press members—it seems she may have gotten the better end of the stick.

“It just all feels like a scene in a movie that you’ve been in so many times, you forget why you keep going,” McGowan says. “It becomes about, ‘why did you cut your hair?’ Why the fuck not? How about that?”
