Rose McGowan

 

  1. Angelina Jolie, Girl, Interrupted, 1999.     Clare Danes was also seen for Lisa - cool, confident and sociopathic - among the patients in the Claymore mental hospital. During Rose’s three-year-affair with shock-rocker Marilyn Manson aka Brian Warner,  she said:  “I always thought I was more satanic than Manson.”  Jolie won the support Oscar.
  2. Kate Hudson, Almost Famous, 2000.  Looking for his Penny Lane groupie in his semi-autobiographical look back to his Rolling Stone reporter daze, auteur Cameron Crowe saw 48 of LA’s bright young things… Christina Applegate, Selma Blair, Lara Flynn Boyle, Neve Campbell, Jennifer Connelly, Claire Danes, Cameron Diaz, Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku, Jenna Elfman, Jennie Garth, Maggie Gyllenhal, Alyson Hannigan, Angie Harmon, Anne Heche, Katherine Heigl, Jordan Ladd, Kimberly McCullough (busier as a TV director these days, High School Musical: The Musical - The Series, etc), Rose McGowan, Bridget Moynahan, Brittany Murphy, Gwyneth Paltrow, Laura Prepon, Lindsay Price, Christina Ricci, Rebecca Romijn, Winona Ryder, Chloë Sevigny, Marley Shelton,  Tori Spelling, Mena Suvari, Uma Thurman, Liv Tyler, Lark Voorhies.  Plus the English Saffron Burrows, Anna Friel, Thandiwe Newton and Rachel Weisz, Madrid’s Penélope Cruz, the French Charlotte Gainsbourg, Canada’s Natasha Henstridge, Ukrainian Milla Jovovich, Scottish Kelly Macdonald, Israeli Natalie Portman, German Franka Potente, Australian Peta Wilson and Welsh Catherine Zeta-Jones.  And the winner, Canada’s Sarah Polley, simply split. (Silly girl).  Crowe then chose Kate  (previously booked  for Anita) because “she seemed more like a free spirit.”  But, but, but… Chloë  was the freest spirit in all Hollywood. As she proved two years later in The Brown Bunny... in a way the others would never have dared.
  3. Natasha Lyonne, Fast Sofa, 2000.     Change  of Tamara, poor cow lover of Jake Busey, who is… well, obsessed with porno star Jennifer Tilly.  In a  road movie as  trashy as its characters. Rose McGowan was the first actress to blow the whistle on producer Harvey Weinstein as a serial rapist - and, indeed, on Hollywood’s everlasting rape culture.
  4. Christina Ricci, Speed Racer, 2007.     Also on the grid for the racing hero’s gal, Trixie - complete with pink helicopter … shades of Lady Penelope… or Reese Witherspoon - were McGowan, Elisha Cuthbert, Kate Mara. Speed, himself, kept changing from Johnny Depp and Zac Efron to Shia Labeouf and Joseph Gordon-Levitt… and, finally, Emile Hirsch, a long time fan of the 1967-1968 Japanese anime series series.
  5. Sasha Alexander, Rizzoli & Isles, TV, 2010-2016.    For the latest in the tele- tradition of women cop duos - the US Cagney & Lacey, BBC’s Scott & Bailey and the tres chic French Astrid et Raphaëlle - Alexander, McGowan, Elizabeth Berkley  and  Sarah Paulson  were on Warner’s Wanted list for  Chief Medical Examiner Dr Maura Isles teamed with  Detective Jane  for 105 cases in Boston.  Creator Janet Tamaro's original choices were Ashley Judd and Winona Ryder. Jennifer Connelly was considered for both roles. 
  6. Eva Green, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, 2013.     McGowan, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Salma Hayek, Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams were all up for the dame in question. Ava.  Variety critic Justin Chang was unmoved. “Rare indeed is the movie that features this many bared breasts, pummeled crotches and severed noggins and still leaves you checking your watch every 10 minutes.”
