Rose Mcgowan - Rose Mcgowan Explains Hollywood 'Disappearances'
Rose McGowan ''disappears'' from her career sometimes because she experiences periods of intensely ''disliking'' the movie industry.
Rose McGowan "disappears" when the movie industry overwhelms her.
The 'Conan the Barbarian' actress took a three-year hiatus in 2002 and another break in 2008 and admits she hasn't followed a conventional career path because her dislike of Hollywood makes her shy away.
She said: "I don't follow the normal pattern of a career.
"I have a very difficult time when I really start disliking the industry, I just disappear."
Rose's recent hiatus came because she was furious with the promotional campaign for 'Grindhouse' - a double bill of Robert Rodriguez's 'Planet Terror' and Quentin Tarantino's 'Death Proof', both of which she stars in - because it targeted only New York and Los Angeles.
She told Total Film magazine: "New York and Los Angeles are already sold on Tarantino and Rodriguez's movies. Go to Iowa, dummies.
"It was infuriating. It's like having a beautiful baby and kicking it out the window as soon as it's born."
Also contributing to her career break was a huge amount of "family stuff".
She explained: "I went through a big number of deaths. And it knocked the wind out of my sails for a while."
