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.

Rose might be taking a break from acting, but she’s definitely not staying still and doing nothing!
Not only she just finished shooting her first short movie Dawn, she also just lent voice to a cute foxy raccoon, Coco, for Dr. Lollipop, Cartoon Hangover’s new short.
Here is what Aliki T. Grafft, director, shared on her Tumblr profile:
My ol’ pal Rose McGowan came in to Salami Studios to record as the voice of Coco for Dr. Lollipop!
Rose was quite the FOXY raccoon!

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.

Rose McGowan is letting her hairstyle go to her head.
The newly platinum blond actress says her look is giving her a toughness she hadn’t had before. “Part of [going blond] is because I’ve been told [brunettes] look accessible and pleasing to the men in L.A. so as not to scare them. But then I realized I always scare them so f— it — I’m just going to do whatever I want and I’ve always wanted short platinum blond hair so screw it….The men in Hollywood aren’t men men — they’re guys like [whispers] Judd Apatow.”
She says this last part while making a face to suggest that Apatow doesn’t chop his own wood, and adds, “Real men are hard to come by.”
McGowan is so fierce during our recent interview on the Rooftop Terrace at Gramercy Park Hotel, it is hard to believe that the whole point in her talking to me is to promote the limited edition rose wine, Apothic Rose (pronounced like the flower, hence the hiring of McGowan; get it?).
Simply put, she seems like the type of female to slam back some tequila shots while bemoaning the state of Hollywood instead of sipping on wine.
“I only drink Rosé, isn’t that funny?” she says in a way that makes me feel it isn’t contractually obligated. “I like it ghetto style — I usually pop an ice cube in it to chill it and take the sweetness out of it.”

These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous “insiders.” After a while, it’s easy to forget that stars are real people. That’s why HuffPost Celebrity decided to launch its all-new #nofilter quick-fire question-and-answer series. Because how well do you know someone until they’ve shared their guiltiest pleasures?
Who knew that Rose McGowan only drank rosé wines? Cheesy as it may sound, the 39-year-old Once Upon A Time actress dryly admitted to Huffington Post Celebrity that the pink drink was her sole wine of choice as we caught up with her Wednesday at New York’s Gramercy Hotel, where she was promoting a limited edition of Apothic Rose Wine. Sitting cross-legged on a plush couch, McGowan also told us about how she’s transitioning from acting to directing, what she does to relax and that time she may or may not have stolen a car.
How did you get involved with Apothic Rose Wine?
Well ironically, I only drink rose wine, for real. I was lucky to become involved with this company, and Apothic Rose is such a cool name, it’s very strong. And I love that it’s seasonal, so just a special, short-time-only thing. It’s like wearing an evening gown and then you have to return it.
