Rose McGowan is preparing to embark on her second USO tour visiting U.S. troops in Afghanistan. And while the Grindhouse star was a big hit on hertrip last year, she said it has nothing to do with her star power.

“The last time I was in Afghanistan, it was my favorite trip I’ve ever had, and I’ve had some amazing trips in my life. But it’s bizarre to me that it would make anyone happy that I’m there. But I think I represent home. That’s all, it’s not about me,” McGowan told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column at the “Do Something” Awards Show in Los Angeles over the weekend. “They get really sad and forget because they feel like people have forgotten them, so I’m just a representative, a vessel, showing that people are thinking of them.”

McGowan, also a long-standing champion for gay marriage, is urging fellow Americans to keep pushing for the federal legalization of gay marriage ahead of next year’s election.

“It should be across the board. It’s really absurd that it’s not a right and the idea that it takes away from people’s sanctity of marriage, I think we should just watch Jerry Springer and see how those people feel about the sanctity about their marriage,” she continued. “If people rise up, the government follows. You have to put pressure on your local representatives, your city council, then your congressmen, then your senators. You have to understand all this is a phone call away, even an email away, and they really respond to that.”

The article and photoshoot for Prestige is now available on the magazine’s official website, or alternatively can be read in our library.

In the interview Rose goes on to talk about her role in Conan, the TV movie she’s been filming (if you’ve been following her on twitter you are surely curious about it!), and her image in Hollywood.

Well, if you actually think about it, I’ve never been arrested, I’ve never been busted for drugs, never got arrested for drunk driving, never gotten out of the car without my underwear on. There’s actually nothing that I have done in my life that would actually fit the bad-girl image. That’s the funniest part of it all, and all of my friends know. That’s why they laugh.

Rose McGowan’s 2-year-old Pomeranian leads a charmed life.

Not only is Sasquatch one of the apples of her eyes (the Conan the Barbarian star also has a Boston terrier named Happy), but she manages to get away with everything, too.

“Sasquatch isn’t really great with toes. She likes to bite my toes and my hands and steal my underwear,” McGowan told People at Wednesday’s InStyle Summer Soiree in West Hollywood. “Happy is [better behaved].”

Happy, 11, and McGowan found each other two years ago. McGowan’s Boston terrier Fester had recently died, and her beloved first Boston, Bug, was not doing well. So McGowan turned to the Boston Brigade rescue and adopted Happy.

“I got him because I knew Bug wanted to die, and it was like she didn’t want to leave me without knowing I would be taken care of,” McGowan tells Modern Dog in its summer issue. “It gave her peace, or something.”

When Bug died last June, McGowan decided to rescue Sasquatch, a mini-Pomeranian who once belonged to a hoarder. Sasquatch, Happy and McGowan are all better off together.

Rose McGowan is featured in The New York Times discussing her love of the Hollywood golden age in the 1930s and ’40s. She was photographed with her beloved RKO letters (that we’ve often heard about!) and discussed the film studio a bit. Its a swell little article! Read it in the library and view the image in the gallery.

Ms. McGowan is the rare actress who manages to land somewhere between femme fatale and madcap heiress. (She’s quick to quote Jessica Rabbit: “I’m not bad. I’m just drawn that way.”) If there is any actress she identifies with, it’s Barbara Stanwyck. “I love how she could play sexy and funny, and how she never stopped working,” she said. She also noted that she recently suffered an injury trying to pick grapefruit in her backyard in high heels.

Conan the Barbarian’s Rose McGowan was raised by drag queens, has a lesbian posse, and gets twitchy in straight crowds. Is it any wonder that she’s a better marriage equality activist than her gay friends?

The Advocate has published an awesome interview with Rose. And you can read the full article in our library. Its guaranteed to make you fall even more in love with Rose!

Are you bisexual?
No. I disappoint myself. I’ve never even kissed a girl. Isn’t that funny? The girls I think are cute look like guys, but then I think, But if they open their shirt, they’ll have breasts. You know that guy Brad [Goreski], who was Rachel Zoe’s assistant? I’d be attracted to a girl version of him.

As a vocal supporter of marriage equality, you participated in the No H8 Campaign.
My sister is gay. Before I broke up with my fiancé, it seemed absurd to have my sister at a wedding that she couldn’t have if she wanted to. I would still have great hesitation about getting married. I’d feel like such a hypocrite, walking down the aisle past all of my best friends who can’t. I was furious with how horribly the whole Prop. 8 campaign was run in California. It broke my heart the night Prop. 8 passed. I’m out there on Santa Monica Blvd. with crowds of people, and the world is watching, but all the anti-Prop. 8 protestors did was put up the same non-telegenic people with the same speeches, not understanding how it works. Their money was totally mismanaged. I really want California to get it together like New York has.

Being an actor is a dangerous business. Just ask Rose McGowan, who stars in the Conan the Barbarian reboot that opens Aug. 19. It’s her first film in years, despite the fact that at Comic-Con 2008 she was touted as the star of Simon West’s planned 2009 return to the Red Sonja tale. That one went by the wayside when McGowan trashed herself on the set of Planet Terror.

“Look at my elbow,” she said at the L.A. press junket for Conan. “I’ve had three surgeries on it and have had part of it taken out. That was from a stunt gone wrong, where I did a handspring backwards. So, during the course of that year it became basically paralyzed except for half of two of my fingers. After three surgeries with massive nerve damage and the bone being taken out and a year of rehab, they’re like, ‘You could go do a sword movie, but we can’t do anything more with your arm if you hurt it.’ As dope as it would’ve been, I would really rather not go through life with one arm that’s paralyzed and in constant pain.”

And that’s not even the end of it. When McGowan was finally ready to return to the job, she got injured yet again. She made it through Conan unscathed, but not for long.

' Conan the Barbarian' Articles
Article written on July 25, 2011 by Mycahe-mail

Meeting Rose McGowan over the weekend at Comic-Con, she instinctively offered her left hand first. Having injured her other arm weeks ago in the goriest window-related accident I’ve ever heard, she’d flown into San Diego to promote this summer’s Conan the Barbarian, touted as one of the bloodiest action pics of the year. But to hear her tell it, Conan the Barbarian’s got nothing on McGowan’s last few years when it comes to struggle and pain — and yet, she credits the summer swords ‘n’ sorcery pic with changing her mind about quitting Hollywood.

McGowan points to a number of events that brought her to the brink of retirement a few years ago: “Mean directors,” major injuries, family illness. She was to star in updates of Red Sonja and Barbarella, both with former partner Robert Rodriguez, before the pair split and both projects fell apart, one by her choice, the other not. After two years “out of the game,” she took the role of Marique, a half-witch, half-human villainess with a freaky look and an even freakier psyche, in Marcus Nispel’s Conan the Barbarian — and the hard-R fantasy actioner re-ignited something within.

Movieline spoke with McGowan in San Diego about the injuries that led to her pulling out of Red Sonja, the reason why Rodriguez’s Barbarella remake stalled, how playing the witch with seductive claws and serious daddy issues in Conan revived her passion for acting, and why she might yet move to a farm in Italy in the near future.

'The Pastor's Wife' News & Rumors
Article written on July 17, 2011 by Riikkae-mail

McGowaniacs have been speculating over Rose’s next project after she tweeted that she was working in Vancouver, BC and posted a photo of herself wearing a wedding dress earlier this month. Now details have emerged that McGowan is currently filming a TV movie titled The Pastor’s Wife, in which Rose plays a real-life woman named Mary Winkler. The real Winkler was convicted of voluntary manslaughter in the 2006 shooting death of her husband, Matthew Winkler, the pulpit minister at the Fourth Street Church of Christ in the small town of Selmer, Tennessee. Michael Shanks (Stargate SG-1) plays Matthew Winkler in the movie. Says Shanks:

“Doing a TV movie with Rose McGowan (Conan the Barbarian, Charmed) called The Pastor’s Wife. Based on a book, true life story etc.. I play pastor Matthew Winkler. Rose will play my character’s wife, Mary Winkler. If you read about the story, the synopsis becomes self evident.”

The film began production on July 11, based out of 1950 Franklin Street Vancouver, home of Front Street Pictures.

Sounds like an intriguing project! Many thanks to maxpower03 for the detective work. Further details on the case and the real Mary Winkler are available on Wikipedia.
