The story behind Rose McGowan’s droopy eye(s)

Everyone was speculating that defiant kind of drugged-out looking Rose McGowan had some sort of botched plastic surgery when she showed up at several events with an extra bit of hanging skin beneath her eyes. It turns out she has an excuse that should make us feel as bad as The Bastardly did for getting schooled by Jenna Jameson that she suffered from skin cancer. McGowan was involved in a car accident in which her sunglasses were smashed onto her face, severing the skin beneath her eye:

ROSE McGowan , a star of upcoming gore-fest “Grindhouse,” had a gory experience of her own a few weeks ago – but it could have been worse. McGowan was a passenger in a car that collided with another, and the accident pushed her eyeglasses into her face. “I didn’t realize I was hurt until I put my hand to my face and felt the flap of skin. My glasses had sliced me under my eye,” the gorgeous actress tells us. She was terrified of scarring, but found an excellent plastic surgeon.

I guess I never pointed it out because McGowan just doesn’t register for me. She does look way too arrogant to be sober in the pictures I’ve seen of her lately, but at least she’s not as scary skinny as she was a few months ago. I’m not entirely buying this story, because both of her eyes seem to have those droopy bags and not just one like the story makes it sound. I’m also wondering why we didn’t hear about it earlier, but at least she’s ok and all.

Here is McGowan at ShoWest awards in Las Vegas on March 15th. She is seen hamming it up with Rosario Dawson, who seems to have recovered from her mini-bangs accident.

Thanks to Saving Face and Hollywood’s Best for these photos.

    when I was in highschool girls who got hickies used to say it was a curling iron burn to cover up for the fact that they were hickies.

    So I guess sunglasses smashed and cutting the eyelid right at the spot that eyelifts occur is the new excuse for curling iron burn…. this is pathetic.

    Didn’t she have bags under her eyes before, just not quite as bad?

    Gaving get out of highschool! She’s 30 something already.

    I hope it’s true, although it does sound suspicious. She used to be really curvy and hot, and I liked her attitude (even though the beaded see through dress was waaaay too much). I know they’re over, but I still have NO IDEA how she could wake up next to that undead mutant tranny every morning. The Hills Have Eyes, Rose!

    I think it’s true. I’d seen some hi-res photos of her and she had plasters just under her eyes – in about the right spot for her story – so I believe her.

    If it was something else I doubt she would have come out and shown it off like she did.

    i’m going to believe her, but i’m not going to be heartbroken if it turns out to really be botched plastic surgery. these days even the most confident celebrities are getting those “fixer-uppers.”

    also i think if she was vain enough to get plastic surgery, i don’t think she’d show her face if it was botched. It looks more like she’s bearing the confidence of a recovered injury.

    How come I didn’t hear about this on the news. I really don’t think this is true. And if it’s not, that’s a sick way of covering up your plastic surgery.

  8. Pecarrie says:

    Well, but she didnt technically cover it up– she said that she used a surgeon– why would she bother embelleshing her surgery by claiming she had an accident?
    Either she would keep hush or come out and say it. As if they didn’t all already get plastic surgery in the first place, and we didnt already know.
    Hollywood doesn’t care if your looks are real; all they care about is how much money you can rake in for them with those looks.

    she looks like that southern woman from the old tv series, designing women…cant remember her name, the thin sassy darkhaired older woman.

    she is probably older than she says she is like all of the other actresses in the couch in the sky of hollywierd. if beyonce can be 25 for ten+ years , i guess so can she. lololol

    oh total ramdomness here, but she was raised in the cult, Children of God.

  11. Viv says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if it was surgery; she’s already modified her teeth.

    Thats Dixie Carter fairy.
