"I'm writing a book right now ... It's called Brave. It's an early overview of my life, and about what Hollywood stole and what I took back and how you too can be brave in your own life." -Rose McGowan
"I'm going to [name names]. I don't care [about the consequences]. These people did these things and they do not deserve protection. They all act like it's this white male mafia that everybody's joined. I didn't join your mafia -- you didn't ask. Do you think I'm going to keep your secrets? Suck it!" -Rose McGowan on Brave.
"It's a dark place. People don't realize it, and I hate to disillusion people of they have any other idea about. ... I know. I am ground zero for this. I was the pixel that was sent out to be masturbated to. I'm very aware of what's up." -Rose McGowan on Hollywood
"I would ultimately like to have my own distribution company for women, and platform for women -- and not just to sit there and bitch about stuff ... and to do it. All those women who are deeply brainwashed in Hollywood -- they too have access to money. They need to wake up. They need to wake up. They are not serving their sisterhood." -Rose McGowan 

"I want to [m]ake a movie that puts together Gaslight, Jane Eyre -- the Mrs. Rochester character, who's locked in the attic -- and Mrs. Danvers from Rebecca. I want to put [together] all three women, who are all these tropes, that you're supposed to believe they're mad because they're unattractive or they're not good, and I want to change that and flip that on its ear." -Rose McGowan on what movie she'd like to remake
