Rose McGowan Says She Was Fired By Agent For Telling a Hollywood Truth
Hollywood apology tours are all the rage these days (you needn’t look further back than Caitlyn Jenner’s coming out for evidence…), but you’re not gonna get a hint of contrition from Rose McGowan.
The actress-turned-director, who recently released short film Dawn, made waves last week when she tweeted a casting note for an Adam Sandler production with some seemingly sexist undertones (“push up bras encouraged”). You can see it below.

In an interview with Gawker that ran yesterday, McGowan posed similar thoughts, and said—after five years on a hit TV show—she quickly became disillusioned with serving as a sought-after actress. She’s committed to forging her own path as a filmmaker, instead.
“I realized that all of these rules that are put down for us, they’re all illusions,” she said. They’re not there. I’m not saying, ‘F– you’ to the rules, the rules simply don’t exist.”
