Marilyn Manson's One-Time Squeeze Loves Her Some Leather
Rose Arianna McGowan (born September 5, 1973) is an American actress, singer and former girlfriend of rocker Marilyn Manson. She perhaps is best known for her role as Paige Matthews in The WB Television Network supernatural drama series "Charmed," but she has been in a number of hugely successful projects throughout her career.
Rose was born in Italy, but is of French and Irish descent. She grew up in a religious community that practiced extremely conservative and unorthodox practices, and eventually she ran away from home. She only began speaking English when her family moved to the United States from Italy when she was ten years old.

After some minor film roles, Rose got her big break when a small film she had appeared in called "Scream" became an unexpected hit. After that, Rose McGowan was a regular in independent films such as "Planet Terror." She won a lead role in "Charmed" when a spot opened up because Shannen Doherty would not agree to sign a two-year contract. That rocketed Rose McGowan to stardom.
Since her "Charmed" years, Rose has appeared in numerous high-quality productions. She played Ann-Margret alongside Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Elvis Presley in the CBS mini-series Elvis, and was Cherry Darling in the cult hit "Grindhouse."
Rose also is a singer. She sang backup vocals on some albums in the '90s, and also appeared in related music videos. She even did some singing on "Charmed."
Part of Rose McGowan's singing experience derived from her years dating rocker Marilyn Manson during the 1990s. The two ultimately split up because of their different lifestyles, but Rose has said that she still attends his concerts.
Rose McGowan loves to wear leather in her personal life. Below, a sampling of pictures of Rose McGowan wearing her fabric of choice.
