Following the previous post that features an interview with Darren Stein, I’ve uploaded the videos of The Jawbreaker Diaries footage that he briefly discusses. These are a really fantastic watch and feature some very rare behind-the-scenes footage from the filming of the movie. Screencaps are also available in the gallery for you to check out. Could Rose possibly be any more adorable?
– Jawbreaker: The Jawbreaker Diaries
Jawbreaker has been out on Blu-ray for the first time for a little while now. MovieWeb got an interview with writer-director Darren Stein about the specifics on the Blu-ray and a little about the film since time has passed. I just watched the movie (you almost forget how fantabulous and underrated it is!) so I found this particularly interesting right now. He said that a musical could be in the works – which would be super cool, I’d say! So for those of you looking to decide whether to pick up the Blu-ray or not – here are some more details for you!
Back in 1999, writer-director Darren Stein released his second full-length feature, Jawbreaker, which starred four up and coming young actresses: Rose McGowan, Rebecca Gayheart, Julie Benz, and Judy Greer. As the years went on after the initial release, not only did the actresses’ careers begin to take off more and more, but the movie itself gained a cult following as well.
Jawbreaker was recently released on Blu-ray for the first time last month, and I recently had the chance to speak with writer-director Darren Stein about the making of his dark teen comedy, the Blu-ray release, and his plans for an upcoming Broadway musical, which may just enhance that cult following even more. Here’s what he had to say below.
Can you start off by talking about your original inspiration for writing this?
– Conan the Barbarian: Posters & Covers
The theatrical trailer for Conan the Barbarian has been released and it features several sneak peeks at Rose McGowan’s villaneous character Marique. This role looks to be something entirely different for Rose – can’t wait! Watch the trailer in glorious HD over at Yahoo! for the full epicness!

Rose McGowan has been attending the 2011 Turner Classic Movies Festival these past few days in Hollywood. Rose, of course, co-hosted The Essentials in 2008 and is an avid classic film enthusiast. On the opening day of the fest, she attended the screening of An American in Paris. On April 30, she helped honor former Phantoms co-star Peter O’Toole at a hand and footprints ceremony. Miss McGowan looked gorgeous and happy at both events!
Tonight Rose will introduce a screening of A Place in the Sun at the festival. Best of luck, Rose!

A few weeks back Rose was in Poland for the Off Plus Camera Film Festival, Poland’s biggest independent film festival, where she took duties as the jury chairperson. Rose attended a photo call and press conference there. We added photos to the gallery but, for whatever reason, were too busy to make a public notice on the main site until now. So, in case you missed it, check them out! Thanks to our fabulous forum members Laura and this Charmed fan site for the images!
I finally got ahold of the Machete DVD, which comes with three deleted scenes that feature Rose McGowan as the insanely cool and equally deadly assassin, Boots McCoy. I’ve added the screencaptures of Rose’s scenes in the gallery plus made video clips for your viewing pleasure. You can check out all of the clips right over here at McGowan Media.
A word of warning, though. Hardcore cat lovers might find the scene titled “Boots McCoy shoots Luz” offensive. Consider yourselves warned! 😉

ZomBcon International is proud to announce the latest name to be added to the 2011 guest list. This year, Guest of Honor, Rose McGowan (Charmed, Scream, Planet Terror) will be joining ZomBcon on Saturday, October 22nd and 23rd for a screening of Planet Terror, Q&A, fan signings and fan photo opportunity.
This year also marks the announcement of the 1st annual Cherry Darling Award; celebrating brave independent women in the film and television industry making a difference in their community. Every year, ZomBcon will honor a female artist in the horror genre to raise awareness for a local charity in the spirit of horror every October.
Rose’s appearance will be help raise awareness for a local non-profit charity, REEL GRRLS that empowers young women from diverse communities to realize their power, talent and influence through media production. Their mission is to cultivate voice and leadership in girls at a vulnerable age in their development. She will be donating 100% of all autographs and photo opportunities to the charity during ZomBcon.
She likes fast cars, classic films of the 1940’s, wears high heels despite an injured ankle. She became an actress by chance. The charming Rose McGowan talked about the beginnings of her career, work with Tarantino and Rodriguez and her passion for action movies.
She never wanted to be an actress. She moved to Los Angeles from rainy Seattle, lived with her boyfriend and wanted to start college. At that moment, her boyfriend died. Totally devastated, she lived at her friends’ place and a friend of a friend offered her first film acting role. She refused, but when she realised that thanks to the film she could make money and buy herself a flat, she changed her mind.
Rose McGowan is very closely tied to her siblings. She talked proudly of what they do now and how great and adventurous their childhood was. “We would go to the police station, tell that we escaped from home and come from a different town. They would give us money for a bus and we were going to the town we never before visited. Thus we saw many places.” Her childhood not always was this carefree. At the age of 14 she worked at a funeral home, and a year later she lost the roof above her head.
