Musicians were asked to create alternative national anthems for Dazed & Confused. She sent Dazed “Planet 9’’, a passionate monologue backlit by a droning cacophony. Listen to the musical piece on their website or below.
“I feel like women have not been able to properly mourn what it means to lose to this man and all men, continually. This one feels particularly vicious, but what he’s about is what we’ve been saying all along. The system is rigged against women. I wanted to give voice to our emotions and thoughts. I’ve spoken to so many women about how we are not represented in the media in the aftermath of the election. Trans bathrooms, while important, get more coverage than the systematic dismantling of Roe v. Wade which will directly affect women by literally killing us. So, here it is, my national anthem. Planet 9 for a new place where we are all safe and loved, but we must fight for this place. Our lives depend on it. I ask that when people listen, they do so with their eyes shut. Listening twice is also recommended.” – Rose McGowan
While Rose McGowan grew up not really owning animals, some adorable pups have captured her heart through the years.
Bug, her first Boston Terrier was adopted during the time Rose was making her second movie. She said she became obsessed with her and the breed.
“I didn’t even know I wanted a Boston. But Bug’s little feet had fallen through the metal cage floor, she was standing in her pee, and she’d been marked down twice.” She knew that in “pet store world” that was a very bad sign. “There was no way I could look at her sad eyes and leave her there.”
Six months later she went back and bought Fester (named after The Addams Family’s Uncle Fester). Fester also was found in miserable conditions and she decided she couldn’t leave him there either.
A few years back, Rose appeared on the Animal Planet show Dogs 101 to talk about the history of Boston Terriers. In the video you can see Rose with her sweet little Boston. Bug unfortunately passed away in the summer of 2010. Rose is a huge lover Boston Terriers and frequently supports animal rescues and charities.

Welcome to version 9 of Rose-McGowan.com! We have launched a brand new version to celebrate our site’s anniversary. We first launched in February 2007, which means that Rose-McGowan.com has been online for a whole decade! Where has all the time gone?
With a new, responsive design we are also celebrating a new direction of the site. In the last couple of years Rose McGowan has taken her talents behind and beyond the camera – and we want the website to celebrate and reflect that. We will still provide photos and content on Rose’s acting career but our main focus will be on her career as a filmmaker, as an artist, and as an activist.
We ask for your patience as we’re still working on converting and refreshing a lot of our old content, which will be available soon. We’ve also decided to part with our old forum. As much as we loved it, the internet has changed a lot since we first opened and the conversations have now moved on to social media. So instead of the forum, we hope to interact with all of you on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Without further ados, thank you for all of your support throughout the years and we hope you enjoy the new direction of the site!

You may now check out Rose McGowan’s haunting short film, Dawn (2014), via Refinery29. They also did a very nice write-up on the film, calling Dawn a “masterfully subversive directorial début”.
If the character Dawn is marked by constraint and indecision, McGowan’s role in shaping her film was just the opposite. Taking the lead on the set design process, McGowan transformed her heroine’s world into a bubblegum-pink embodiment of the ’60s obsession with order. Moving through this bright landscape of neat ranch houses, pleated skirts, and sleek, new furniture, the film clearly reflects the post-war craving for a return to convention.
Rose McGowan is partnering with television festival SeriesFest on a scriptwriting competition called the Featuring Women Initiative. The aim of the competition is to search for new episodic content about, for and featuring women, offering artists the opportunity to share series that create unique and powerful roles for women.
Scriptwriters can submit concepts for 30-minute or 60-minute dark comedy or dramatic series with each pilot script focusing on a female-centric episodic story. Submissions will be judged from a three- to 15-page “Series Bible”, including log line, pilot summary, character breakdown, at least six future episode synopses and a five- to 10-page writing sample. The winner(s) will receive a writing deal with Rose’s production banner Damage Inc. Productions and the opportunity to work alongside McGowan to bring her show to life.
“Damage Inc. is looking for screenwriters. Writers who are interested in bringing substantial women to life via episodic storytelling”, says Rose McGowan. “Any genre except slasher films or superhero series. Can be psychedelic, can be true to life, can be comedy, can be tragedy. Must be intelligent, smart, fierce and moving. Society is in dire need of voices that are not from within the Hollywood ecosystem. I know what’s available there, which is why I am looking for you and your writing talents.”
