Rose McGowan To Star In 'The Bell Jar'
Rose McGowan is white hot at the lighting of the Burberry sign across the Manhattan skyline at The New York Palace Hotel on Thursday (May 28).
At the event, the 35-year-old actress told me she’s starring in the new adaptation of Sylvia Plath‘s The Bell Jar.
“My character’s name is Doreen,” Rose told JustJared.com. “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.” The movie also stars Julia Stiles and is being directed by Nicole Kassell (“The Woodsman“).
Rose also told me all about her low-key Memorial Day 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.”
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!”
