…For Conan the Barbarian, not Conan, the gingerehad talk show host.
When producers of the movie asked Rose McGowan to shave her eyebrows and her hairline to play the evil sorceress Marique, she said, "Sure, if you give me $5 million."
LOLz! We like your negotiation skillz, Rose!
Too bad the studio didn't fall for it though and instead, opted to have the film's makeup team get her into character every morning. To get her to look like the lovely image (above), they had to slick back her hair and put on a prosthetic piece that went over her eyebrows and back to the middle of her head.
Rose says she "sat from about two in the morning till around 7:30 in the morning" to get it done.
Whoa, that's rough. Seems she liked the results though because she added:
"I think she looks kind of majestic and amazing. It really freed me up to be as kind of weird as i wanted to be. It was the only time I've ever actually had an ease with watching myself on screen."
Aw, don't be so hard on yourself, hon. You are beautiful so there is no need to beat yourself up. And no more plastic surgery!
Your character does look pretty awesome. Conan the Barbarian comes out this Friday!
