It seems Rose experienced a couple of fashion disasters on the red carpet as some of you probably noticed. One was that her suit top became exposed briefly which revealed her bra (but Rose quickly covered it up! ) and if you’ve wondered why she isn’t wearing earrings in some of the pictures, Rose told JustJared: “I immediately got a blob of pink lipstick on my lovely satin lapel. So yes, now my earrings serve as a brooch. Let’s not tell Burberry!”
McGowan also shared what she did for Memorial Weekend: “Believe it or not, I slept all day long on my couch in my [body-length blanket] Snuggie. Now, I bought the Snuggie as a joke, but that thing is serious business. It will take you down! I watched 20 episodes of Golden Girls! But I was very, very sad [when Bea Arthur died]. Although Rose and Blanche are my favorite, Bea was the glue.”
At the Burberry event Rose revealed some exciting news exclusively to JustJared.com that she’s starring in the new adaptation of Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar!
“My character’s name is Doreen. She’s kind of a 50’s magazine girl from New York, it’s really fun. We’re shooting in South Africa most likely. I’ve never been there, so I’m really excited.”
Plum Pictures announced planned for a new Hollywood version of the novel to be written by playwright and screenwriter Tristine Skyler back in early 2007 with Julia Stiles to star as the novel’s protagonist, Esther Greenwood. At the time the movie is listed as ‘in development’. No word if this will be the same script but it’s presumed.
The Bell Jar begins in New York, after winning a Ladies’ Day contest. Her mental state gradually deteriorates over the summer. During a night out with Doreen, Esther creates her identity as “Elly Higginbottom”, which she refers to again later in the book. At a meeting with Jay Cee, she realizes that she has no plans, only “I don’t know”. At the end of the summer, she stands on the roof of the Amazon hotel, and, piece by piece, scatters her clothes to the wind. When she returns home, she finds that she was not accepted into a writing course, and dreads an entire summer at home, with nothing to do. The days blur into one another, and Esther eventually visits Doctor Gordon, who prescribes shock treatments. Esther begins reading “scandal sheets,” and analyzes each one of the suicide attempts pictured. She “practices” killing herself, then attempts to overdose on her sleeping pills. Her life is saved, however, and she eventually is sent to a mental hospital, Caplan. An old friend of Esther’s, Joan, arrives at Caplan, also after an attempted suicide. Esther moves to a less restrictive hospital, Belsize, although she feels that she is not well enough. Her new doctor, Doctor Nolan gives her shock treatments, and this time they seem to work, lifting the bell jar, at least temporarily. Esther’s life fluctuates up and down, from then, but the book ends on a hopeful note, as she enters for her conference with the Belsize doctors.
Hopefully there will be more information about this project soon. Were all dying to see Rose on the screen again, I know!
If you know anything about Rose McGowan, it’s probably that the actress used to date over-the-top rocker Marilyn Manson or that she’s notorious for bad-girl, vixen-esque acting roles.
So when we ran into the star at the Burberry event celebrating the opening of the British company’s new headquarters in New York and asked her who her Hollywood crush is, we kind of expected McGowan to say something that made more sense — like Johnny Depp. Or Adam Lambert even — someone with at least a little bit of edge or controversy. But no.
Instead, we got an answer no one was expecting: Cary Grant (also random) and — wait for it — Zac Efron.
The revelation even seemed to shock Rose herself. The look on her face after she made the confession was pretty priceless. And when I finally picked my jaw up off the floor and asked her why Efron, McGowan said, “I don’t know! Because there’s something wrong [with me].”
Yesterday evening Rose attended the “Burberry Day” event at the The New York Palace Hotel. Miss McGowan wore a sleek white pant suit and looked really sophisticated and gorgeous. I have added the first images to become available.
Rose McGowan to the Observer this about the event:
“I love New York but I hate gray weather, It makes me want to cry and sleep. Even though I don’t tan, I like the bright lights. Tonight, though, with how this looks, the word ‘Gotham’ is perfect. It’s a perfect description. It literally looks like Batman should be sweeping off one of these buildings. That’s awesome, and that’s a great thing about New York.” – Rose McGowan
And if you’re wondering why Rose isn’t wearing earrings in some of the pictures, here’s the explanation of her mini fashion disaster. “I immediately got a blob of pink lipstick on my lovely satin lapel,” Rose shared. “So yes, now my earrings serve as a brooch. Let’s not tell Burberry!”
