Rose McGowan Asked Million To Shave Off Eyebrows For FilmThe 37-year-old actress was asked by producers to remove her brows and shave back her hairline to play evil sorceress Marique in the new movie but she insisted she wouldn't do it unless the price was right.
She said: "The studio asked if I would shave my eyebrows and my hairline back to here, and I thought, 'Sure, if you give me $5 million.' "
However, the studio turned down her request, forcing the actress to spend hours at a time in the make-up chair getting ready for the role, which included slicking back her hair and wearing a prosthetic piece that went over her highbrows and back to the middle of her head.
She told 'Access Hollywood': "I sat from about two in the morning till around 7.30 in the morning."
Rose – who was in a car crash in 2007 - has also revealed she is having to turn down roles because of an arm injury which could be left irreparably damaged if she hurts the limb again.
She said: “I had a really severe injury which left me basically paralyzed in the right arm.
“I had three surgeries on it and I was told if I hurt myself again the doctors won’t be able to do anything more for me. With things like the remake of 'Red Sonja' which I was due to do, I would be using my arms a lot so I can’t do it. I used to be able to lift 20lbs. Now I can only lift 3lbs.”
Rose McGowan On Being Raised By Drag Queens
The 'Charmed' actress claims she ran away from home when she was 13 and soon found herself being taken in by a group of men who liked to dress up as women.
She said: “At 13, when I was a runaway, I was taken in by the most amazing drag queens in Portland, Oregon. We didn’t always know where our next meal was coming from, but there was so much camaraderie and love.
“Not to mention, those girls could paint a face, and I learned how because of them.”
Rose – whose sister is a lesbian – says while she is straight, she regrets not having experiences with other women when she was growing up.
The 38-year-old star told The Advocate: “I disappoint myself. I’ve never even kissed a girl. Isn’t that funny? The girls I think are cute look like guys, but then I think, 'But if they open their shirt, they’ll have breasts.'
“You know that guy Brad Goreski, who was Rachel Zoe’s assistant? I’d be attracted to a girl version of him.”
Now Rose – who is currently single but has previously dated rocker Marilyn Manson and director Robert Rodriguez - wants to put that right by doing a lesbian love scene.
She said: “I’d be stoked to do a lesbian love scene. When asked if I’ve kissed a girl, I could finally say, 'Why, yes, I have. And I got paid.
“To this day, I only go to gay clubs. I’m perfectly at home there. I also like watching hot boys and hot girls who can dance.”
