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.

Last night was the big Hollywood premiere of Conan the Barbarian. Rose McGowan was in attendance – showing off how gorgeous she is and playing up her glamour to the max (quite the opposite of her character Marique!) in a bold sequined dress with blue and green. Pretty pink lips, side swept curls and gold accessories completed her ensemble. Simply divine!

On Wednesday, Rose McGowan stepped out at the 10th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree. Rose looked stunning in an orange wrap cocktail dress with teal accessories and snakeskin shoes and clutch. Her hair was styled straight which I think looks fabulous on her!

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?
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.
