Rose McGowan To Star In 'The Bell Jar'

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 “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!”

She looks fantastic. She usually looks good, but I haven’t seen her look ‘this’ good in a long time. Her skin looks beautiful and healthy.

# 3

I like her, I remember when she wore that awesome dress!

@Melissa I know! I don’t swing that way, but even I have to admit that she was smokin’ HOT in that dress. Little black threads never looked so good!

# 5

Love her, she has such character and she is so tiny in person.

# 6

Way to go Jared you got Rose McGowan. You are on your way.

I love her. She looks great don’t care for the suit but she is looking lovely.

# 7

BTW, Congrats on the interview Jared.

# 8

Hell yeah she looked sexy ass hell in the stringy dress.

# 9

Now see if this was Angelina J the haters would be out in force. But because Rose McGowen didn’t break up America’s Sweetheart’s marriage (only broke up a marriage with five kids-Robert Rodriguez ) no body says a word.
Double standard-one for Jolie/Pitt and one for the rest of Hollywood.

However, she does look really good tonight.

she’s going to make a great doreen!

Rose is a natural beauty :D

I guess I’m the only one here that has a problem with her being in The Bell Jar?? She’s going to taint that book for me… ugh. She can’t act… I wish these stupid chicks who can’t act would just fade away & stop ruining perfectly good things.

I can’t really see Rose as Doreen!

we miss charmed

she is beautiful

Jared sucks asssssss @ 05/30/2009 at 11:46 pm

dude you’re lame and will never be a perez hilton! BORING!!!!! and forgettable, that’s what you are

wow, she is looking fantastic. She has put on a bit of weight over the last 2 yrs and she looks so young and fresh now…more like 25 than 35

Okay so I’m from South Africa and a HUGE Rose and Charmed fan – so I’m wondering when does filming begin – any ideas – I will find the set and hunt her down I love this women!! ***
