McGowan said acting is "predominantly men whose scripts get done, so it was mostly a male voice coming out of my mouth for 15 years."

Rose McGowan released a new music video for her song "RM486." 

The actress turned singer showcases a variety of eccentric looks in the music video, going bald and nude in white paint at the beginning and then donning a series of wild outfits that look like clothes Lady Gaga would wear. The video is in fact directed by Jonas Akerlund, who directed Lady Gaga's "Telephone."

McGowan, known for her role in Charmed, released the music video on Nowness and gave an interview in which she talked about why she left acting.

"I woke up one day and realized I hated acting, and that I’d always hated it," said McGowan. "Imagine, it's predominantly men whose scripts get done, so it was mostly a male voice coming out of my mouth for 15 years."

She talked about how she feels it is important to represent women's bodies in a non-sexual manner.

"The body shaming that goes on in America is absurd," she said. "Recently at a museum there was this woman behind me looking at a nude sketch of a man, and she said she’d never let her child around that, and I turned to her and said, 'Oh really? Would you like your child to first see a penis when it’s erect and coming at her?' I don’t want to do this kind of thing, but I feel like I have to, to stimulate change."
