While loitering outside an L.A. gym she was discovered by a talent agency and following her revealing star role for indie maverick Gregg Araki in The Doom Generation (1995) her career began to zoom. With her alabaster skin and trademark ruby red lipstick, large expressive eyes, and hourglass figure, Rose makes a formidable presence on screen and in the numerous fashion spreads and art photography she also indulges in.
In one scene of Grindhouse, Quentin Tarantino tells McGowan that she looks like Ava Gardner, but Rose says she doesn't get paid that compliment very often in real life. "It's funny. She's one of my idols, just purely looks. She's stunning and a lot better actress then she was given credit for," she said. "The day that I could actually be told I really look like her, would be a fantastic day because I should take the compliment and shut up. ‘Yes, I get told that all the time.’ No, I don't."
It’s okay Rose, we still love you.
Such a delectable, smoldering, sassy beauty is Rose. Where do I start? My three fave pics are the black bar heater shot, the black and white polka dot bikini shot, and the moody, rouge dress last shot, talk about femme fatale!
