Rose McGowan faced a difficult challenge several years ago when she sat at her father Daniel’s bedside while he was dying from a rare lung disease.
The actress, best known for her role on the TV show Charmed and subsequent movies, was her father’s support person, sharing his passion for art books and watching Little Rascal episodes with him from his hospital bed.
Now, McGowan is using her celebrity as an actress to put a face on a rare fatal disease as a way to help patients and their families on this difficult road.
She said in a recent exclusive telephone chat last week that she has made it her mission to raise awareness about idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, the disease that took her father’s life in 2008 at age 61, and to help people recognize the signs and symptoms, receive sorely needed emotional support.
It is especially timely that she is speaking out about the disease and her advocacy now because September is Pulmonary Fibrosis month.
The raven-haired McGowan, 40, who portrayed Paige Matthews in the supernatural drama Charmed, made her film debut in the 1992 comedy Encino Man.
Her upcoming projects include a film adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart which opens on Oct. 15, and she is making a movie in Texas called The Last Duane, a western due out in the fall of 2014, also starring Jason Patric.

That was fast! Rose McGowan has been engaged for less than two months, and now, the 39-year-old actress is in full-on wedding planning mode. After getting engaged to boyfriend Davey Detail in July, the star already has her wedding date, honeymoon destination and more all set.
“We’re getting married October 12th at a mansion,” the actress revealed to Us Weekly at the premiere of Mademoiselle C in New York City Friday, Sept. 6. “It used to be a nunnery, so it’s perfect for me. As everyone knows, I am a nun!” she joked.

A modern-day B-movie queen, Rose McGowan is well-known for her definitive role in Gregg Araki’s ’90s teen-angst thriller The Doom Generation.
Her irresistible venom has also landed her roles in movies like Encino Man, Bio-Dome, Scream, Nowhere, Jawbreaker, Grindhouse, Machete, and Conan the Barbarian. She will next appear in the fittingly dark big-screen adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart, with Peter Bogdanovich.
First big break: The Doom Generation. Since then I’ve: gone up and down and all around.
My favorite character that I’ve played to date is: Cherry Darling in Planet Terror.
My next project is: A short film I directed called Dawn. It’s produced by RSA/Blackdog and is super legit. Not a vanity piece. I’ve also found a feature to direct. I have no desire to act in any movie I direct.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

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!
Final character design of Coco by Brianne Drouhard.
Dr. Lollipop is created by Kelly Martin for Frederator’s Cartoon Hangover, coming soon to Youtube. Directed by Aliki T. Grafft

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.
