These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous “insiders.” After a while, it’s easy to forget that stars are real people. That’s why HuffPost Celebrity decided to launch its all-new #nofilter quick-fire question-and-answer series. Because how well do you know someone until they’ve shared their guiltiest pleasures?
Who knew that Rose McGowan only drank rosé wines? Cheesy as it may sound, the 39-year-old Once Upon A Time actress dryly admitted to Huffington Post Celebrity that the pink drink was her sole wine of choice as we caught up with her Wednesday at New York’s Gramercy Hotel, where she was promoting a limited edition of Apothic Rose Wine. Sitting cross-legged on a plush couch, McGowan also told us about how she’s transitioning from acting to directing, what she does to relax and that time she may or may not have stolen a car.
How did you get involved with Apothic Rose Wine?
Well ironically, I only drink rose wine, for real. I was lucky to become involved with this company, and Apothic Rose is such a cool name, it’s very strong. And I love that it’s seasonal, so just a special, short-time-only thing. It’s like wearing an evening gown and then you have to return it.
The actress and Apothic Rose spokeswoman shares her entertaining secrets, how she became a social media sensation, and why kicking ass must be part of her job.
On why she’s thrilled to be wearing heels: “Today is my first day not wearing a boot. I broke my toes when my boyfriend picked me up to give me a kiss, and he let me go unexpectedly. It’s my third boot in four years. Before, I ran into a wall. Another time, I hit a doorframe. Usually I’m moving too quickly. My body’s still doing the last thing and I’m onto the next thing. I’ve shut my head in the car door. It’s really embarrassing and it hurts.”
On her next movie, Rise of the Lonestar Ranger: “I’ve always wanted to be the kick-ass, guy gunslinger, and unfortunately I had to be the saloon lady. But I did get to stab somebody in the leg, so that was cool. At least I got to kick some ass. It’s like a prerequisite for me. I have to kick some ass on some level.”
On what she serves guests: “I cook only pastas and cakes, so it’s pretty much exclusively carbs if you’re coming to my house. I grew up in Italy eating pasta — I probably eat it four to five times a week. I don’t like canned sauce, and the key to mine is putting in a balance of red wine and sugar. I also love aglio e ollo, garlic and olive oil, really simple. Pasta and a glass of wine is the best thing ever.”

Let’s make this happen!
Apologies for the lack of image updates as of late. My laptop broke down early this year and I’ve simply been too busy to get caught up with everything. However, my computer is finally back up and running and I had a moment to update the gallery with photos from the majority of the events that Rose McGowan attended in 2013 thus far.
I am also super excited to announce that Laura, perhaps best known as RoseRocks, has officially joined the staff of Rose-McGowan.com! She’s been a fan of our website since day one and grown to be not only one of our most loyal site contributors but has also been administrating our forum for a number of years and also helping with our Facebook page. I’m sure you agree with me that there’s none more deserving to become the new co-webmistress of the site than her so please join me in giving her a warm welcome! ♥
