Rose McGowan Agreed To Shave Hairline And Eyebrows For $5 Million Dollars

Rose McGowan Agreed To Shave Hairline And Eyebrows For $5 Million Dollars

Actress Rose McGowan has lots of experience with casting spells and working with the Book Of Shadows for her time on the TV series Charmed.

Now Rose is featured in the new "Conan the Barbarian" which opened at theaters on Friday, as evil sorceress Marique with a shaved hairline which shows off her exaggerated forehead.  Rose calls it her "10-head" which is part of her character's special look.

Transforming the beautiful former witch to a character with an exaggerate forehead initially involved the concept of having Rose shave her hairline several inches back from her hairline as well as shaving her eyebrows.

Rose recently told Kit Hoover on Access Hollywood Live "The studio asked if I would shave my eyebrows and my hairline back to here, and I said, 'Sure, if you give me $5 million."

Somehow the studio figured out how to transform the lovely Rose into the big forehead embellished Marique only as Hollywood can.  In the makeup trailer.  Rose told Access Hollywood "I sat from around 2 in the morning until about 7 in the morning," she explained.

The good news?  Rose didn't have to shave her eyebrows or her forehead.  What she was paid to be in the film was not disclosed during her Access Hollywood chat.

But all that sitting around was worth it.  Rose looks very believable as Marique.   Rose stars alongside Jason Momoa in the title role, and the former "Game of Thrones" actor impressed her.

"He's a doll," she said of the actor. "I call him like, the sweetest barbarian there ever was."  She also said "He's so amazing in this part," she added. "He's what [original Conan creator] Robert E. Howard [imagined].... Jason looks like he just stepped out of the pages of the comic book. Jason looks like he was born to battle with a big sword."

Gently scrubbing your scalp w/your fingertips or fingernails when showering is a fab way to give dandruff the brush off. When combined w/ a good dandruff treatment shampoo, light finger scrubbing removes dead skin cells from the scalp.
