I've always been a fan of Rose McGowan from way back during the Jawbreaker days. I liked her pulpy turn in Planet Terror and of course Charmed with both her and Alyssa Milano . . . woof, must see tv indeed!
But during her time working with then husband Richard Rodriquez, she had a rash of physical problems -- an injury on the set of Red Sonja and then a car accident that caused some serious facial damage. Her reconstructive surgery changed the dynamics of her face, and perhaps she thought (or was poorly advised) that other cosmetic surgery might be a plus . . . she just didn't have the same look that had captivated me before.
She's done a few things since, most notably that awful Conan reboot, but she turned up in some behind-the-scenes stuff for some recent photo shoots that have her looking better than I've seen in a while:
Her face looks softer (as to the contours) and that might be simply make-up and/or lighting, but she looks beautiful in a way she hasn't for years. Rose isn't going to make anyone's list of the top ten actresses of all time, but she does credible work, isn't going to ask for body doubles all the time (*cough* Jennifer Aniston *cough*), and is certainly a better actress than quite a few of the younger stars getting work today.
Here's hoping she gets more on-screen work in the near future.
