Rose McGowan’s tweets about Adam Sandler and the B.S. in Hollywood have resulted in her acting agent dropping her.
The outspoken actress spoke out about sexism in Hollywood earlier this month and claims her agent fired her.
McGowan tweeted on Wednesday that her ‘wussy acting agent’ had fired her.
The Jawbreaker star wrote, “I just got fired by my wussy acting agent because I spoke up about the bullsh** in Hollywood. Hahaha. #douchebags #awesome #BRINGIT”.
She later added, “The awesome thing about being an artist? You can’t be fired from your own mind. #FREEDOM”.
Earlier this month the Charmed star posted a ‘wardrobe note’ attached to a script she was sent on Twitter.
The note said, “Black (or dark) form fitting tank that shows off cleavage (push up bras encouraged). And form fitting leggings or jeans. Nothing white.”
She did not mention Adam Sandler’s name, but it was pretty obvious from her little clue.
Rose wrote, “Casting note that came w/script I got today. For real. Name of male star rhymes with Madam Panhandler hahahaha I die.”
McGowan explained her comments in a new interview:
Rose explained, “I was offended by the stupidity more than anything. I was offended by the fact that went through so many people’s hands and nobody red flagged it. This is normal to so many people. It was probably even a girl that had to type it up. It’s institutionally okay.”
She discussed her first experience in Hollywood, saying, “When I did my first film, I was told by my agent that I would need to have long hair so men in this town would want to f*** me and hire me. That was said to a 17 year old.”
Earlier this week, in an interview with Gawker, the actress said she wanted people on her team that realized her vision for her career.
She said, “I had a very big agent who basically did the mind-meld on me: ‘Do this movie about wrestling.’ I threw the script in the garbage three times because that’s where it deserved to be. It was Ready to Rumble. It was a lot of money. She just didn’t care, and I mistook her for someone who was a strong woman. What she really was was a mercenary woman. And there’s a difference—and one who didn’t like me, either.
“A lot of agents aren’t supportive of their talent in any way. Nobody’s understood how to represent me, which is why, other than film publicists, I currently have no representation other than my lawyer. I don’t need it.”
