I have some amazing – and very surprising – news to bring you today: Rose has been working on writing her own TV series for the past few months! Check out the following article from The Associated Press for more details:
Shhh, don’t tell anyone what Rose McGowan’s been up to for the past few months.
“I’ve spent most of the writer’s strike … writing. Wait, that sounds terrible!” she said, standing backstage Monday at the Max Azria show at Fashion Week.
“But I’m not part of the union, so it doesn’t matter,” explained the 34-year-old strawberry blond, known as much for her failed engagement to Marilyn Manson as for her roles on the TV show Charmed, or as a go-go dancer with a machine gun for a leg in last year’s film Grindhouse.
Manson has since gone younger â€” the singer is currently dating 20-year-old actress Evan Rachel Wood. McGowan, meanwhile, has been nursing an interest in slightly older men â€” the subject of her writing project.
“I’m writing a TV show about old men. I have kind of a yen for them. It’s going to be like a Golden Girls, but with men,” said McGowan, for whom no writing credits are listed on IMDB.
So why the geezers?
“They are just so funny and hilarious and sweet and kind of crotchety,” she said. “I’ll probably have to cast younger and then make up the actors to be older, because my dream actors are all dead. I mean, I’d love to use Jack Lemon. But he’s dead. Or James Garner! Actually, he’s not dead. Yet.”
McGowan has been a regular in the tents this week, but not as steady an attendee as Sophia Bush, who has racked up more front-row seat sightings than Vogue editix Anna Wintour.
Before heading to her seat at Ports1961 after the Max Azria show, the One Tree Hill actress even asked a makeup artist backstage to take a moment away from the models to put some powder on her nose. Other Ports1961 attendees included actresses Mandy Moore, Aisha Tyler and Emily Deschanel.
