In the NY Post today they have an article about Rose McGowan and how her recent breakup with Robert Rodriguez is going to be a boon to the career of Jessica Alba. How Jessica Alba in the role of Barbarella is going to help her career is beside me, but that is not the reason I'm writing about this in the first place.
What is missing from all this is that Rose and Richard broke up because he couldn't get financing for the film with her attached as the lead. No one wanted to shell out $70M to have Rose star in the film. I wouldn't pay $5 to have Jessica Alba in it either, but that's why she keeps making huge amounts of dollars for crap films and I live in my parent's basement.
Rose decided that since she wasn't going to be able to get to do the lead in the film that maybe she didn't really love Robert all that much and definitely didn't want to get married to him. No role? No sex, love, marriage or baby carriage.
I don't care who you are or what you do, but it has to be a huge slap in the face to know that someone is only with you for what you can give to them. You might be in love with that person and totally devoted to them and then wham, they show you that all those things you thought they felt were really, nothing more than lies.
You know the really ad thing about it? Someone will go out with Rose McGowan again and probably believe everything she is saying to them, when in fact she should probably be forced to be dateless until the end of time or be forced to sleep with Gary Coleman twice a week.
Robert Rodriguez will probably never trust another person again. Sure, I bet there have been plenty of women who have hit on him because he is a director, but they were probably fairly easy to spot. He probably thought that with someone at Rose's level she wasn't trying to just use him. Guess he was wrong.
