Rose McGowan Calls Oscars Audience “Self-Obsessed” After Not Giving Kim Novak a Standing Ovation
Filed Under: News & Rumors, Other, Rose McGowan News • Posted on March 4th, 2014 by Holly • No Comments »

Rose McGowan is not happy with the star-studded audience at this year’s Academy Awards.
The actress took to Twitter and Instagram to vent her frustrations after Kim Novak didn’t receive a standing ovation when presenting alongside Matthew McConaughey at the awards show.

“Kim Novak! No standing ovation?! Self-obsessed and disrespectful, that sums up the Oscar audience,” she wrote.
She then posted several pictures on Instagram showing the Hollywood icon and added a few well, colorful, captions to really drive the point home.

“You are all lucky that she graced you with her presence RT @rosemcgowan: Disgusted by the uneducated twits that make up the audience at this year’s oscars. Gross. It’s Kim Novak, a–holes. #EDUCATEYOURSELVES.”
And yes, she did RT herself.

One fan wrote her on Twitter, saying, “I usually love you but calm down! It’s an actor not Jesus.”
OK, fair point. McGowan, however, was not amused.

“It’s called Hollywood history, their occupation,” she responded.

She finished up her tweetspree with a funny (and calm) message to her fans.

She posted, “Okay, I feel better now having gotten that off if my chest. Little tantrum over.”

Once Upon a Time is resurrecting Cora — kind of!

Actress Rose McGowan has signed on to reprise her role as the youthful version of the villainous Queen of Hearts.
McGowan (Charmed, Death Proof) previously played Cora in the pivotal episode “The Miller’s Daughter” last March, which was an origin story for the character (normally played by Barbara Hershey) and also showed her death. The character hasn’t been on the show since. McGowan will return to Once Upon in the 18th episode this season.


Rose McGowan says women don’t help each other in Hollywood
Filed Under: Interviews • Posted on January 18th, 2014 by Holly • No Comments »

While Rose McGowan is known for taking on edgy roles in the films like Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s “Grindhouse” and the hit TV series “Charmed,” she says she only recently found her true calling, behind the camera.

“Directing wasn’t particularly challenging, I find acting more challenging,” McGowan told FOX411 ahead of the Thursday night Sundance Film Festival screening of her directorial debut short film, “Dawn.” “I’m used to handling a lot. I run a tight ship. I find acting harder because I have no control in that. I kept waiting for the panic attack to happen while directing, but it just didn’t… I like acting, but if I never act again, I’ll be okay.”

Written by M.A. Fortin and Joshua John Miller, who McGowan first met when she skipped school as a 14-year-old to play a movie extra, “Dawn” is centered on a quiet teenager living in a Kennedy-era America who longs for something or someone to free her from her sheltered life. The girl soon meets a boy at the local gas station who gets more from her than he anticipated.

Unlike many actors, McGowan insists that she doesn’t suffer from insecurity issues.

“I’m a very secure person. I know I’m a good actress, I’m solid,” she continued. “But I think as a director, you can create a world rather than just be in a world. And who doesn’t want to create a world?”

McGowan is slated to start directing her her first feature-length film in a few months. She said it will bea dark comedy illuminating what women do to women in the entertainment industry.

“I don’t want it to look like a Kardashian reality house, it needs to be a Richard Meyers house,” she explained. “It’s a commentary on how women treat other women. Women don’t help other women in this industry; it sucks because men don’t help women either.”

And over the course of her 22-year Hollywood career, the 40-year-old star said little has changed in the way of women working together.

“I would love to change that somehow,” McGowan added. “That would be magical.”
