Happy New Year 2010, McGowaniacs! How about starting the year by bidding on a pair of Rose’s autographed shoes? The proceeds go for a good cause, 1st Annual Heel Hate Benefit for The Matthew Shepard Foundation.
Rose McGowan Autographed pair of Vero Cuoio red heels in size 36. Both are autographed on the side of the heels. One of the heels has “NOH8!” written on the other side.
The Matthew Shepard Foundation understands that like the Stonewall Riots of 1969, the murder of Matthew stands as a watershed moment in civil rights. During 2010, the Foundation will work in collaboration with the LGBTQ movement and the anti-violence movement to honor this anniversary. Equally important, the Foundation must be strong to withstand the efforts of the religious right to distort history. They are committed to fighting for inclusive hate crimes legislation and they will do what it takes to achieve passage of this milestone human rights legislation.

The Rose McGowan Birthday Project 2009 page has been updated with additional information about the Project and the scrapbook that we did for Rose. We are happy to announce that our Birthday Project was a great success! Miss McGowan recently received our gifts and sent us a note thanking everyone who contributed for their efforts.
Here is Rose’s thank you note to all the fans:
I am sooooooo touched. As you know, it’s been a tough year for me and all of your kindnesses have brightened my day.
Thank you all for all of the hard work, the beautiful drawings and the sweet letters; means so much.
Also, it was such a treat to see pictures of you all!
Thank you all for being there.
Much, much love,
We wish to extend our thanks to each and everyone of you who made the Project possible! Thank you! Kisses go out to Brandon for the stunning cover and Ken for all his generous help.
Also, you can now view a couple of shots of the book in the gallery. I tried to not add any photos of personal entries and instead concentrated on showing some of the fan art so you’d still get a peek – without anyone feeling like their private entries were being published. If there’s anyone who does not want their art to be displayed in the gallery, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
A mix of young designers, artists and social types hit the Paperball benefit for New York’s Museum of Art and Design on Wednesday evening, including Rogan Gregory, Chris Benz, Robert Geller, Terence Koh, Fabiola Beracasa, Lorenzo Martone and Peter Davis.
Host, Rose McGowan, was in town from Iowa, where she’s filming a movie, Dylan’s Wake, with Nick Stahl and Amy Smart. “I play a crackhead,” she explained. “It’s really hard core and heartbreaking. And the ugliest clothes ever. So to come here and wear vintage Bill Blass is a nice change.”

Rose McGowan was photographed for the NOH8 Campaign yesterday and one behind the scenes teaser image was already released from the shoot. Below you can find information about this very important cause. Please go and visit NOH8Campaign.com for further details and info on how to join the fight to end discrimination.
On November 4th, 2008, Proposition 8 passed, amending the state Constitution to ban same-sex marriage.
In the wake of the defeat, there has been a groundswell of initiative from within the community at a grassroots level. Seizing this opportunity, new political and protest organizations are forming almost daily. The NO H8 Campaign is a photo project and silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska (http://www.bouska.net) and partner Jeff Parshley in direct response to the passage of Proposition 8.
The campaign started with portraits of everyday Californians who support Marriage Equality and soon rose to celebrities, military personnel, brothers and sisters, law enforcement, lesbian mothers, directors, politicians, newlyweds, and more. Photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths symbolizing their voices not being heard and “NO H8” painted on one cheek in protest.
Thanks to our great forum members maxpower03, blake_6060 and RoseRocks for making this update possible!

Don’t forget that Rose will introduce the world premiere of Night of the Living Dead in 3D tonight at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The event is open to the public for a $10 per person minimum donation, with proceeds benefiting the Johnny Ramone research fund at USC Westside Prostate Cancer Center.
Actress Rose McGowan, a close friend of Johnny and Linda’s, who will be on hand to introduce Night of The Living Dead 3-D, concurs on the young people. “I love seeing three-year-old kids with their Ramones t-shirts on,” she tells Spinner. “My four-year-old nephew bops all around to it.”
McGowan, despite having starred in Grindhouse, says she is not a horror film fan “at all.” In fact, when she and Johnny, a big horror buff, would meet up to watch movies she would squash any notions of horror flicks. And yet, here she is, set to introduce a zombie film in a cemetery. “I will be shutting my eyes a lot Saturday. That would fit Johnny’s sense of humor perfectly. He was an imp, a bit of a troublemaker,” she says. “And the fact I have to introduce it, he’d be laughing his head off. ‘Ha, ha, Rose, I got you.'”

Check out a most excellent new interview with Rose in our library, courtesy of MetroMix Des Moines. We learn about Rose’s Dylan’s Wake character Charlie and it sounds like a very challenging and great role for our girl.
Actually, I’m basically completely disgusting in this. She is a semi-homeless crackhead who I think is half cracked and half schizophrenic. She somehow latches onto Nick Stahl’s character, and he feels sorry for her and tries to help her, but she’s a tough one to help. It’s funny, though, people want to come to the set and meet me and unfortunately I’m covered in dirty clothes and disgustingly dirty shoes and they put all this oil in my hair to make it look like it hasn’t been washed in a very long time, not to mention makeup obviously doesn’t enhance anything, more like dehances. They also put some brown stuff on my teeth, so these poor people come to set and they want to meet me and it’s a little frightening for them. I know I’m not what they were expecting.
People always say I’m not the girl next door. To which I always reply that I have always lived next door to someone my whole life. I don’t understand that.
I really wish that I could relearn Italian and move back to Italy and do some crazy Italian films. That’s honestly what I wish for more than anything.
I have some fantastic news to share! Rose McGowan has confirmed to us that she is indeed part of Robert Rodriguez’s impressive cast of Machete, which is due for release in 2010. I truly cannot wait for the film! Rest assured that we will be covering Machete every step of the way from now on since we have a confirmation that Rose will appear in it.
Ms. McGowan also said that the filming of Dylan’s Wake is going well and had the following to share about the project:
Filming on Dylan’s Wake is going great. Who knows if anyone will ever see this little indie gem but I hope so. Indie’s are having an incredibly hard time finding studios to release them. Almost all of the studio’s indie offshoot companies have closed because of the economy. But, that’s the business side, for now, I’ll just say I’m having an amazing & fulfilling time. I love my castmates, the director & the kindest producers I’ve ever worked with.
After the last year I had, this being my first project back is a gift from the universe.
Once again a big ‘thank you’ goes out to Rose for keeping us updated on her latest ventures!
At this time last year, Rose McGowan told us how excited she was to be kicking butt and working under the direction of her fiancé Robert Rodriguez in the she-devil comic book adaptation Red Sonja, but it turns out a serious injury has brought the production to a standstill.
“I had wrist and elbow surgery and they took part of my elbow out. I had really bad nerve damage from doing stunts – I do a lot of my own stunts,” McGowan recently told Tarts. “I could no longer use my arm, but now I can hold a fork and drive so we’re working our way up. It’ll probably be another six months of rehab, but it’s the price you pay for being really limber and being able to do back flips!”
