Rose McGowan isn't afraid to blast her haters!The 40-year-old star took to Instagram Tuesday to slam social media users who commented on a photo saying she looked like Michael Jackson.It all started when the "Jawbreaker" alum posted a pic of herself wearing sunglasses, with the simple caption, "Afghanistan."One commenter then wrote, "You look like Michael Jackson," while another commented: "#michaeljackson no more plastic surgery please!"McGowan immediately replied to the second user, writing, "@katrinabunny coming from, ummm, you." The actress, who got reconstructive surgery after being in a car accident in 2007, continued to fire back, asking, "Has anyone stopped to think that Michael Jackson used to be black, and tried to turn himself into a white, possibly Irish person with a cleft chin and a tiny nose? I was born Irish. So f--k off losers." While some commenters came to the "Charmed" star's defense, the actress was still clearly upset. »

Does Rose McGowan look like the King of Pop? She certainly doesn't think so. On Tuesday, the Jawbreaker actress posted a picture of herself wearing sunglasses, with the simple caption, "Afghanistan." One Instagram user commented, "You look like Michael Jackson." Yet another Instagram user echoed that notion, telling McGowan, "#michaeljackson no more plastic surgery please!" McGowan immediately replied to the second user, writing, "@katrinabunny coming from, ummm, you." The actress, who got reconstructive surgery after being in a car accident in 2007, continued to fire back, asking, "Has anyone stopped to think that Michael Jackson used to be black, and tried to turn himself »
In a move that hopefully won't echo that time they made Bon Jovi play a plumber in Ally MacBeal, singer Marilyn Manson has joined Sons Of Anarchy for a recurring role in its seventh and probably final season.
Manson, aka Brian Warner, will be joining the beautiful people of Samcro in the role of Ron Tully (no relation to Caitlin, we assume), "a white supremacist prison shot-caller whom Jax uses to expand his power base".
Manson, whose recent on-screen appearances have included a part in Eastbound & Down, a voice role in Once Upon A Time, and not forgetting that time he popped up in then-girlfriend Rose McGowan's highschool teen movie Jawbreaker, has declared himself a huge fan of the Kurt Sutter drama. "Sons has been such a big part of my life, »

'It's an obnoxiously camp DayGlo assault of a movie, every second of its runtime deep-fried in double entendre'

Studios are often criticised for intentionally misrepresenting their films in an attempt to reach a wider audience than they might do otherwise. It's a fair complaint: millions of people might have been spared Marley & Me had its poster not shied away from depicting the onslaught of postnatal depression and canine euthanasia that made up the film's final act. But ever so often, a film comes along for which misrepresentation is a crucial part of the package. Jawbreaker director Darren Stein goes back to school in Gbf, the story of a newly outed high school senior who finds himself stalked by a trio of would-be prom queens, each of them desperate to secure their own socially appropriate "gay best friend". From the off, it's an »

Following on from a triumphant showing at the recent BFI Flare festival in London, Darren Stein’s (Jawbreaker) high-school comedy G.B.F. (Gay Best Friend) now makes its way to Blu-ray and DVD, and we had the pleasure of sitting down with the filmmaker, alongside the lead star himself, Michael J. Willet, to discuss the project.
The pair discuss the difficulties in getting a film with a gay protagonist financed in Hollywood, finding an intimacy in such grandiose surroundings, the striking visual experience of the picture – and how being an outsider in real life has helped them both when creating this piece of cinema.
Darren it’s been 14 years since your last feature film. What was it about this particular story that lured you back in?
Darren Stein: It was the script. I’m not interested in making specifically teen films, but this one was so smart and relevant and »

HollywoodChicago.com was on the scene, which took place at the historic Music Box Theatre in Chicago. The stars of the opening night feature film. “G.B.F,” were there for interviews and photos, plus filmmakers and actors from the films “Burning Blue,” “The Happy Sad’ and “Truth” – which were shown throughout the week – also walked the fabled Red Carpet.

One of our favorite films from the '90s turns 15 today -- and man, have the stars' lives changed since 1999.Starring Rose McGowan as a deliciously evil teenage girl and costars like Rebecca Gayheart, Julie Benz and Judy Greer, "Jawbreaker" was a 1999 "Heathers" knockoff that became a cult classic.After a group of girls accidentally kills a friend by stuffing the title candy in her mouth and locking her in a trunk as a prank (like you do, right?), alliances are tested, backs are quickly stabbed and a new Queen Bee is created in the form of Vylette.And with appearances from people like Pam Grier and Marilyn Manson, it's a helluva lot of fun.But since 1999, a lot has changed.Not only do some of the stars look very different, they've also been through quite a bit. One of them was charged with vehicular manslaughter, another had one of »

Easy Peasy: Stein Returns to High School Hallways for Sweet Hearted Message Movie
Five years before Mean Girls brought the monstrous high heeled bitch posse back to the forefront of PG-13 blockbuster entertainment, director Darren Stein’s 1999 film Jawbreaker explored the morbid universe of a trio of black hearted murderous maidens in the delightful R tradition of Heathers. In his first feature since then, Stein goes back to the hallways of high school with G.B.F., once again revisiting the formula of the popular female triumvirate, only this time aligning himself with the spirit of John Hughes. Many aspects of high school life may seemingly never change, but Stein’s latest rendering, while extolling a message that seems deliriously obvious to the adult world, cheerfully proposes that even this rigid, socially conditioned environment has had opportunity to grapple with progressive notions of equality.
The three most popular girls in high-school, ‘Shley »

G.B.F., a cunning new comedy from Jawbreaker director Darren Stein, is a minor high-school flick, but also an inherently modern one. It is bolstered by a refreshing premise and a sharp cast who overcome some of the absurdity and clutter in George Northy’s debut script. The acronym of the title stands for “gay best friend,” which leads the viewer to expect a depiction of contemporary high-school drama that could be too hip or condescending. As it turns out though, G.B.F. is neither, instead, it’s merely happy to embrace its gay-positive values and is just smart enough to make us laugh at some of the stereotypes it skewers.
The film’s plot, if anything, depends on the trendsetters. As gay protagonist Tanner (Michael J. Willett) tells the audience, there is something about being first in high school. It turns out that Tanner’s first is, to him, an embarrassing »

I try to be unbiased, and for the most part, I’m pretty successful. I’m only human though, and occasionally I’m swayed by who might be in the film. Some actors bring a disdain with them that the only hope of me getting past my biases is an undeniably good film. At the opposite end of the spectrum, I can give a pass to a pretty mediocre film if it features someone I like. This one has my kryptonite for being objective, Ms. Rose McGowan. I’ve always dug her in just about anything she’s done. Even films that were not so great for the above stated reasons. She definitely has a presence. I’ve seen her evolve from an evil ingenue in “Jawbreaker”, to being a part of the mainstream lexicon in “Charmed”, and now transitioning from younger to »
