TheTVObserver: Rose McGowan
Television is about fantasy, even reality shows are trying very hard to call upon the demon of editing to help make boring reality shows more exiting for viewers. But no one heats up the screen like irresistible Rose McGowan. TheTVObserver's StarSpread presents the hot and sexy Rose McGowan.
The first time we saw her was on TheWB's Charmed series. She stole our observing eye and she has always been a #1 favorite throughout the years. She is HOT! HOT! HOT! and she has never failed to bring thunderous sparks to the small or big screen.
Rose Arianna McGowan is an Italian-born American actress best known for her role as Paige Matthews in TheWB TV series Charmed.
She has also appeared in several major Hollywood films, with leading roles in Jawbreaker and the Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez double-feature Grindhouse, and a supporting role in Scream. McGowan was until recently the co-host of TCM's film-series program, The Essentials; in the most recent season, Alec Baldwin has replaced her as co-host.
In May 2005, McGowan portrayed actress/singer Ann-Margret in Elvis, a Golden Globe-winning CBS mini-series about the life of Elvis Presley. In 2006, McGowan had a brief role in Brian De Palma's Academy Award-nominated film The Black Dahlia.
McGowan appeared on a BT track called "Superfabulous" from his album Emotional Technology, which was also featured on the final Charmed soundtrack, The Final Chapter. The song has been featured in several films, including Win a Date with Tad Hamilton and Raising Helen. She wrote and recorded a song titled "Protection," which was featured in her 2001 film Strange Hearts. McGowan has also appeared in the Imperial Teen music video for "Yoo Hoo", which was featured on the Jawbreaker soundtrack.
McGowan was the face of American clothing company Bebe from 1998 to 1999. She was also the cover model for the Henry Mancini tribute album Shots in the Dark, which was released in 1996. In addition to clothing endorsements, McGowan has appeared on numerous magazine covers, including Seventeen, Interview, Maxim, GQ, Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone. She has also frequently been featured on Maxim, FHM and Stuff magazine's sexiest women lists.
McGowan has admitted to sleepwalking as a child. "The weirdest spot I ever woke up was a snow bank in Montreal. Now I just speak Italian in my sleep." McGowan also suffers from agoraphobia, an anxiety disorder.
Of her acting method, McGowan said "I'm not really one of those people who goes and writes some big backstory and agonizes over characters...For me personally, it's just kind of more instinctive. But I don't have kind of an acting background. I fell into it accidentally.
