Rose McGowan’s representative confirmed to E! News on Monday that she is “happily engaged” to artist Davey Detail of the art collective Cyrcle. Rose and Davey have been dating since early 2012.
On behalf of all the fans, we’d like to say congratulations to the lovely couple on the happy news!
This September marks a momentous milestone for our favorite leading lady Rose McGowan – her 40th birthday!
We feel that for this special birthday, Rose deserves an extra-special gift to mark the occasion. Here at Rose-McGwan.com, we will be honoring Rose by raising funds for a cause very close to her heart and by compiling a unique booklet consisting of your fan art and birthday messages. Please read on for details on how to contribute!
Fundraising for the Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis
After having tragically lost her father, artist Daniel McGowan, to Pulmonary Fibrosis in 2008, Rose has been working tirelessly to raise global awareness about the debilitating disease. As an Ambassador for The Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis (CPF)
and the Chair of the Daughters of PF, Rose’s personal mission has been to inform as many people as possible about the symptoms of the disease, raising awareness in an effort to eventually find a cure.
We at Rose-McGowan.com are working together with the CPF to raise funds in Rose’s honor, as a birthday gift for her this year. With Rose having positively affected so many peoples’ lives throughout the world, let’s take this opportunity to give something back this year!
You may donate through our FirstGiving fundraising page. Please donate any funds you can, large or small, and we can all work together to truly make this a birthday to remember!
Fan Art & Appreciation Booklet
We’ve also decided to compile a unique Fan Art & Appreciation booklet as a souvenir for Rose from the staff and visitors of Rose-McGowan.com, to accompany your donations to the Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis. To get an idea of this, you can read up and view photos of our 2009 birthday scrapbook, which was a great success.
What we’re needing from you, is to email us some of your drawings and artworks with an accompanying brief description of each one, why you did the artwork and how, as well as a brief birthday message to Rose herself to go along with the donations to CPF.
Artworks can obviously feature Rose; perhaps drawings of her Bostons (and Sasquatch!); maybe even something sentimental that Rose herself is a fan of – we all know she has a penchant for Old Hollywood stars – just an idea! So send along a birthday message/poem, maybe even a photograph of yourself with some of your Rose memorabilia – whatever you think she will appreciate, so she knows just how much respect, love and support we have for her and her work!
All entries must include your name, and where you are from as these will be included in the booklet as well.
The book will be delivered to Rose in September, so rest-assured that the lady herself will get to see all of your beautiful artworks and messages.
A list of those who have donated will be given pride of place at the very beginning of the booklet, so Rose will see exactly who has participated in the donation drive. If you donated and are on Twitter, you may include your Twitter handle as well.
Please send along all artwork and accompanying messages to email@example.com with the subject: ROSE-McGOWAN.COM BIRTHDAY BOOK. The deadline for submissions is September 1, 2013!
Remember to be creative and have fun!
Now, let’s show Rose that we really mean HAPPY 40th BIRTHDAY!
Rose McGowan leads a “charmed life,” but she’s far from your typical A-list star.
The 39-year-old opened up to omg! in a candid interview over a couple glasses of Apothic Rosé wine at the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City and dished about everything from redecorating homes to her obsession with pasta and Taco Bell.
No joke: she can recite her Taco Bell take-out order on command – “Taco Fresca and Bean and Cheese Burrito, no onions, add sour cream, two dollars and 46 cents at the window, thank you” – and enjoy a couple glasses of wine on a Friday night, just like the next girl.
Since we’re toasting with wine, you obviously like to drink it, right?
Rosé is actually primarily what I do drink. I’ll drink it all season, so what’s great about this Apothic Rosé, is that it’s cool that they’re calling it after me – just kidding – but it’s a limited edition… so it makes it kind of extra special.
Are you a two-glass wine girl?
I’m a two-glass girl.
After two glasses, there’s a chance that one makes bad decisions…
Well, after two glasses, then there’s another decision. If you get to the third glass, then you have a bad decision of getting to the next glass, and then you have a bad, bad day the next day. I get hung over really easily.
Have you ever made a bad decision after drinking wine?
I’ve noticed that my IQ goes down about 10 to 15 points with each glass of wine. So if we go past two, yeah. I think everyone’s kissed somebody that you really regret, right? Then you see them the next day or, for me, get a photo with someone, and you’re like, what was I thinking? Oh my god. That’s definitely [the worst]. I don’t have beer goggles, but you can have wine goggles. I’m not a beer girl.

On April 24, Rose McGowan unveiled the limited edition Apothic Rose rosé wine at the rooftop terrace of the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City.
Rose stunned in a jewel toned jumpsuit that she paired with black Sergio Rossi pumps (it was her first night back in heels after she injured her foot and had to wear a boot!). She styled her new blonde locks in a low bun with a pompadour for a bit of extra volume and confessed to Examiner that yes, she is having more fun as a blonde! Such a fun look to boot!
As you may have noticed, I added a handful of images from the Apothic Rose Wine Launch in the gallery a couple of days back.
– Public Appearances: Apothic Rose Wine Launch
– Photoshoots: Photoshoot #001 (2013)
The actress and Apothic Rose spokeswoman shares her entertaining secrets, how she became a social media sensation, and why kicking ass must be part of her job.
On why she’s thrilled to be wearing heels: “Today is my first day not wearing a boot. I broke my toes when my boyfriend picked me up to give me a kiss, and he let me go unexpectedly. It’s my third boot in four years. Before, I ran into a wall. Another time, I hit a doorframe. Usually I’m moving too quickly. My body’s still doing the last thing and I’m onto the next thing. I’ve shut my head in the car door. It’s really embarrassing and it hurts.”
On her next movie, Rise of the Lonestar Ranger: “I’ve always wanted to be the kick-ass, guy gunslinger, and unfortunately I had to be the saloon lady. But I did get to stab somebody in the leg, so that was cool. At least I got to kick some ass. It’s like a prerequisite for me. I have to kick some ass on some level.”
On what she serves guests: “I cook only pastas and cakes, so it’s pretty much exclusively carbs if you’re coming to my house. I grew up in Italy eating pasta — I probably eat it four to five times a week. I don’t like canned sauce, and the key to mine is putting in a balance of red wine and sugar. I also love aglio e ollo, garlic and olive oil, really simple. Pasta and a glass of wine is the best thing ever.”

How the hell do you even describe Rose McGowan? She’s the girl you want to hang out with, even though you know she’s trouble. She’s mean and moody and almost certainly carrying a concealed weapon of some sort, but when she likes you, she makes you feel like the only other person in the world. “I guess I always thought of my characters as these little tough things who seemed strong, but if you pushed them, they would crack,” she says. This statement, it seems, describes McGowan herself as much as it does her roles.
Her big break came as a troubled teen on an inadvertent killing spree in Gregg Araki’s cult classic, The Doom Generation. Since then, she has suffered death by garage door in Scream, and taught a jock how to go down on a popsicle in Jawbreaker. She was a good witch onCharmed, and an evil queen in Conan The Barbarian. That’s to say nothing of the time she played a stripper with a machine gun leg in the splatter-fest that was Planet Terror.
Ahead of her appearance at the Supanova pop culture convention, we spoke to McGowan about these various iconic roles. We discussed her predilection for playing weirdos and outsiders, and the “trial by fire” that was her first big acting job. Most surprising of all was the revelation that, after two decades in the business, McGowan may be ready to give up acting all together.
Junkee: The characters you play are often dark, and even a little bit evil. What is it that draws you to those sorts of roles?
Rose McGowan: Well, I like things that are funny, actually, and I think I excel at comedy in a lot of ways. When you play evil, you often have the exact same beats as you would play in a comedy. When I’m doing a very over-the-top, evil character, I will often start laughing as soon as the director says ‘cut’, just laughing at myself.
There’s something really joyous about the idea of just being really, really evil.
Sometimes it’s so absurd, it’s hilarious. In Conan The Barbarian, I have these long, claw things, and I’m trying to find a virgin so I can slit her throat or something with these crazy nails. When I hear ‘cut’ in that situation, I just immediately start laughing because it’s ridiculous!
So I was a huge fan of The Doom Generation growing up…

The trailer for John La Tier’s The Tell-Tale Heart, starring Rose McGowan, Patrick John Flueger and Peter Bogdanovich, has just been released. It looks very atmospheric, visually arresting and promises a great role for Rose. I, for one, cannot wait to see this one!

Rose McGowan is coming to Once Upon a Time this Sunday, March 10, as the young Cora in Fairytale Land, the titular “Miller’s Daughter.” She tells Zap2it that it was a joy to work on the OUAT set and that she loved being part of an origin story.
First off, we tell McGowan that we’ve seen the episode and we must commend her on how much she looks and sounds like Barbara Hershey, who plays the older Cora. So, did Rose study Barbara’s clips from the show?
“No. I watched like three or four clips and then I forgot all about it,” says McGowan. “I realized that this is an origin story. I already look very similar to her, and in real life, I have a voice that’s pretty deep, so it matches pretty well. So that took care of that.”
“The rest of the story is very different in how she’s ended up, so I have actually an open palette to play with. I approached it that way,” she continues. “I wasn’t try to imitate her in any way because the physical aspect was already taken care of.”
“That’s the cool thing about being an origin story and not a later story, you get to create what the person was before.”
And what Cora was before is not that dissimilar to what we’ve seen of older Cora. She may not have been evil, but she was definitely always ambitious.
“I think she started out as somebody with a lot of burning intensity to be more than she is,” McGowan observes. “She hated being looked down upon by the swells, so to speak. All the swanky people looking down on her while she’s laying in the dirt did not work well for her. She knew she was meant for greater things.”
