Rose McGowan Says Agent Dropped Her for Criticizing Adam Sandler Film Role
"I just got fired by my wussy acting agent because I spoke up about the bullshit in Hollywood," tweeted the actress on Wednesday.
Rose McGowan appears to be changing agents.
In a Twitter message posted on June 18, the Charmed actress criticized the wardrobe requirements for a part in a film that she received an audition script for. She said the forthcoming film stars a male actor whose name rhymes with "Madam Panhandler," and she later confirmed to E! that the star is Adam Sandler.
She pointed out that actresses auditioning for the role were told to wear a "black (or dark) formfitting tank that shows off cleavage (push-up bras encouraged). And formfitting leggings or jeans."
On Wednesday, McGowan tweeted that she had been dropped by her agent following the flap.
"I just got fired by my wussy acting agent because I spoke up about the bullshit in Hollywood. Hahaha. #douchebags #awesome #BRINGIT," she tweeted.
McGowan, who recently has appeared on Crackle's Chosen and ABC's Once Upon a Time, had been repped by Sheila Wenzel and Steve Muller at Innovative Artists. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Wenzel is no longer with the agency, although McGowan tweeted that Wenzel parted ways with Innovative before McGowan was dropped.

The awesome thing about being an artist? You can't be fired from your own mind. #FREEDOM— rose mcgowan (@rosemcgowan) June 25, 2015
Sheila Wenzel is a wonderful agent that ceased working with Innovative before my firing. She's a good, strong woman I'm proud to know.— rose mcgowan (@rosemcgowan) June 25, 2015
