It seems Rose McGowan isn’t afraid to reveal some of the unbelievable casting call requirements in Hollywood. The actress even admitted to being “embarrassed to be part of Hollywood sometimes.”
McGowan recently tweeted a photo of a sexist casting call requirement for a potential new project she’s eyeing. According to E! News, McGowan took to Twitter last week to share a photo of the script’s notes, which state the following: "Please make sure to read the attached script before coming in so you understand the context of the scenes. Wardrobe note: Black (or dark) form-fitting tank that shows off cleavage (push-up bras encouraged). And formfitting leggings or jeans. Nothing white."
McGowan captioned the picture, “casting note that came w/script I got today. For real. name of male star rhymes with Madam Panhandler hahahaha I die.” Her comment suggests that the actor is Adam Sandler. But it is unclear whether the actor is just starring in the film or if he is somehow involved in the casting call requirements.
McGowan told the New York Post that she sometimes feels embarrassed to be part of Hollywood. “These people have to get out of the wrong decade … or century,” she said. “I didn’t take a vow of silence when I joined the industry. I wasn’t aware I joined the Mafia. I’m going to make fun of something stupid, and maybe somebody will learn something.”
The actress’ Twitter post echoes the woes of casting calls that are detailed in Tumblrs, the Refinery29 reported. One particular Tumblr site named ‘Casting Call Woe’ details casting requirements for roles that most likely don’t come with names or lines, such as "Breasts: You gotta have something that bounces when you run," and "She wears a lab coat on top of sexy lingerie."
Meanwhile, Sandler was recently criticized for wearing sweatpants during a recent photocall for "Transylvania 2," while co-star Selena Gomez was all decked out in a silky gown worthy of a red carpet appearance. It wasn’t the first time Sandler has been slammed: In April, the comedian’s latest comedy, "Ridiculous 6," stirred up some controversy when Native American actors reportedly walked off the set, saying they were "offended" by the movie's stereotypical subject matter.
