Rose McGowan slams ex-fiance Robert Rodriguez

Rose McGowan

Rose McGowan, 40, who began an affair with Sin City director Robert Rodriguez while he was still married – claims the filmmaker’s planned remake of 1968 futuristic film Barbarella ground to a halt because her former fiancé ”doesn’t know” how to work outside of his home state of Texas. Asked during a Facebook Q&A how close the remake – in which she would have starred in the title role made famous by Jane Fonda – came to being made, she said: ”We had $80 million to shoot it in Germany, but he pulled the plug because he doesn’t know how to shoot outside of Texas.” The director previously claimed he didn’t want to make the movie in Germany because it would mean being away from the five children he has with ex-wife Elizabeth Avellan for too long.

He said: ”Germany offered us a $70 million budget, which would have been by far the biggest budget I ever would have had for a movie. But I had to shoot it in Germany and post it in Germany. Nothing against Germany, but I have five kids and I was like, ‘God, I don’t know if we can do that. I don’t know if I can be away that long.’ It was a real bummer. We had all this artwork and screen tests of what it would look like. It was a really cool, R-rated, sexy version of a Star Wars movie… It was gonna be really great.”

    What a bitter c**t…No, honey, everybody knows it also had to do with the fact that the people backing that shelved film wanted someone BETTER for the role.

    Apparently she’s forgotten her greatest role happened because of Rodriguez…wherein,ironically, she played a dancing w***e.

    She’s a weak actress and needs to accept that…and stop using so much botox.

    Shut up! Every actress does have thoughts to be spoken out. And what Rose did on Grindhouse is terrific, instead of a trashy role. And since that too, Rose has been a more independent woman who knows what she can speak to public. She can stand for herself.

    Moreover, can people stop judging her look? She has her look, she owns her rights. It’s all up to herself. Check on yourself before taking any mean comment.

    By the way, I was born in Texas, moved to L.A., It took less than a year to figure out San Francisco was way cooler than L.A. and San Francisco and Austin are now my two homes. Not wanting to make movies outside of Texas and stay near your children shows character Rose never has shown. I mean, Marilyn Manson… What taste. Robert is a great talent and we love him in Austin and San Francisco. Charmed? CHEESE. Rose never made a decent movie unless you count her luck at getting into Grindhouse. My girlfriend is way hotter than her and is way more interesting. Robert dodged a bullet

    ” because he doesn’t know how to shoot outside of Texas.” Sounds like a lot like M Night Shyamalan’s problem, though just for PA

    Since they had an affair and he left his 16 year marriage for her it is sort of obvious she got the Grind House role because he had the hots for her. Together they broke up his marriage, the home of his five children. When he didn’t deliver the roles and movie deals thought she was getting through him, she moved on. Now she’s into her 40s and can’t be such a seductress type anymore so she’s changed her persona to adopt a butch activist identity and is wallowing in the attention and self-promotion. He’s full of it when he says he cast her only to stick it to Weinstein. He kept working with the guy after Grindhouse. He just doesn’t want to admit he slept with his employee after she was assaulted by Weinstein because it could put the spotlight on him. She swings to extremes and always liked to party hard. Even Marilyn Manson dumped her because she abused coke too much. It’s doubtful she gave a fig about his role as a father to five children. She’s an uneducated damaged hard-ass who doesn’t know how to get ahead without men and she doesn’t know how to get what she wants or needs from them without her sexuality. No doubt she was abused a lot when she was really young, since she was raised in a cult and ran away from home when she was 13, so considers men a necessity but hates them for it. So what does she do after Rodriquez doesn’t get her what she wants? Mocks him publicly. She’s grown only more vicious over time.
