Have you ever wondered how rich is Rose McGowan? According to sources, it is estimated that the size of Rose’s net worth is equal to $18 million as of early 2016.

Rose McGowan Net Worth $18 Million
Rose McGowan was raised with five siblings by Daniel, a commercial artist, and Terri McGowan, who worked as a writer. Her parents ran a new religious movement in Italy called the Children of God, so Rose spent her childhood traveling with them through Europe. Thanks to her father’s contacts, she entered the entertainment world very early as a child model, appearing in a number of Italian magazines, including “Vogue Bambini”. At the age of 10, she moved with the family to Oregon, USA, but soon after her parents divorced, and she stayed with her father in Seattle, Washington, where she attended Roosevelt High School and Nova Alternative High School. Parallel with school, she worked in McDonald’s, as she wanted to live on her own, which she soon accomplished and moved to Los Angeles, California, to pursue a career in the acting and modeling world.
Rose made her Hollywood debut in 1992, with an appearance in the film “Encino Man” with Brendan Fraser and Sean Astin. Three years later, Rose was cast in the dark comedy film “The Doom Generation”, in one of the lead roles, and in 1996, she was featured in films “Bio-Dome”, and “Scream”. Thanks to her successful endeavors, her name became more known in Hollywood, which resulted in five film appearances in 1997, including in “Going All The Way”, “Lewis & Clark & George”, and “Kiss & Tell”.
Before the end of the 1990s, Rose appeared in such productions as “Phantoms” (1998), “Jawbreaker” (1999), and “Southie” (1998), which all added to her overall net worth. The 2000s only changed the number of roles, and the amount of her fortune.
Before she was chosen for the role of Paige in the TV series “Charmed”, Rose appeared in the films “Monkeybone” (2001), “Ready To Rumble” (2000), and “The Last Stop” (2000). Although Rose dedicated herself to the series while the show was aired, she also made a few appearances, in the films “Vacuums” (2003), “Strange Hearts” (2002), and “Elvis” (2005). After her role in the “Charmed” ended, she focused again on finding new engagements in the entertainment industry, and it wasn’t hard for her, as her popularity had reached a whole new level, thanks to her previous success. In 2006, Rose was featured as Sheryl Saddon in the film “Black Dahlia”, and a year later she was cast in the films “Death Proof”, and “Planet Terror”.
To speak further of her accomplishments in the entertainment industry, her net worth increased by the roles in the films “Fifty Dead Man Walking” (2008), “Nip Tuck” (2009), “Dead Awake” (2010), “Conan The Barbarian” (2011), and “Rosewood Lane” (2011). Most recently, Rose earned roles in such productions as “The Lower Bar” (2016), and “The Tell-Tale Heart” (2016), which will certainly increase further her net worth.
Overall, Rose is a successful actress, having appeared in more than 50 TV and film titles, for which she has received several prestigious nominations and awards, including the Best Supporting Actress for her work in “Planet Terror”.

At age 15, she left to live on her own, legally emancipated, supporting herself with several odd jobs, often having to lie about her age. Living on her own meant being forced to live on the streets for a short time, but despite this she later attended art and beauty school before heading to Los Angeles where she was found outside a gym because thought it was "too corny" and had a chance encounter with independent film director Gregg Araki. Her performance in Araki's dark road movie earned her a nomination for Best Newcomer at the 1996 Independent Spirit Awards.

[about the abuse she's faced in Hollywood] The whole time, my entire career, I was very uncomfortable. I felt like I was wearing wet pants...I couldn't understand what was wrong with my life and everybody was telling me how lucky I was. I couldn't understand why I was that lucky because my life, on the other side of the camera, was very lonely and very difficult. I was working with a lot of very misogynistic men that were nasty. I didn't have great luck. I had a lot of really abusive directors. 
It has been pointed out that I like people obsessed with their work - they leave me alone. If I'm looking for anything in a man, I'd say empathy, and thousands of miles between us.
I've never come across any uncircumcised men. Actually except for Manson, my boyfriends have always been Jewish.
I imagine, had I grown up in Belfast, I would 100 per cent have been in the IRA. My heart just broke for the cause. Violence is not to be played out daily and provide an answer to problems, but I understand it.
I know I am kind and I have fun and if I sat there and worried about what everybody else thought of me my brain would be very crowded.
If one person starts crying, I'll cry. If one person has no money, I'll give them mine. If I had a bicycle growing up, I always felt incredibly guilty when I see someone sitting at the bus stop.
I still say I can do whatever I want as long as I'm not hurting anybody else. I don't understand why more people aren't like that.
I've always admitted it: I'm a man with really nice breasts - I'm so guilty of doing every single male thing. Not calling, not showing up, leaving at four in the morning.
People thought (I was wild) because of who I was with (Manson). In reality I've been home baking cupcakes.
Hollywood is all about making an entrance. I don't want to be a walking advertisement for anyone other than myself.
I think women look better with a little more weight on them. Being super thin makes you look haggard.
I don't really care how people view me particularly. It's not really any of my business because everyone is going to have their own opinion and if I started thinking about what everyone else thought of me, I'd go crazy.
"I'm a fan of pink, I'm a fan of high-heeled shoes and I'm a fan of strange-looking dogs, so this hits all the notes for me" (At the Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde (2003) premiere).
I want to live in Paris. I want to learn to ice-skate and to box. I want to get a degree in Egyptology. I would like to not have to say "Like, oh my God!" in any movies. I would like to have a day go by without people screaming various obscenities about body parts. I'd like to still have Bug and Fester, my Boston terriers. I think I'd like to be with my boyfriend, except (laughs) I'm pretty commitment-shy. I'd like to please my father, who used to be in the Children of God, and do at least one more "porno" film - which is what he called The Doom Generation. I'd like to start some sort of counselling program for girls - when I was that age I was always told that I was gonna burn in hell. I would like to lose the guilt I have for compulsive spending. I would like to stop being addicted to diet hot chocolate.
I don't believe in rules. I would be happy to be climbing a pyramid when I'm 70. And I know I will be.
When I lived in Europe, I was usually pretty exalted for the way I looked. I had minions who would run and get me candy...But when I moved to Oregon and entered my goth phase with spiky black hair, kids threw things at me.
I'm a pussycat unless you do something to one of my friends. Then I'll think of unique ways to get back at you. I'm more creative than your average bear.
It's my job to spread deviance to the American youth.
I feel people have tried to stamp out what is special about me. Why should I downplay myself to make someone else more comfortable?
"I always thought I was more satanic than Manson" (Discussing the sinister reputation of her ex-fiancé Marilyn Manson).
You have to work to carve out your own little corner, and I'm certainly smacking my head against the wall trying to make a dent. I just hope I don't get brain-damaged before I get there.
I am going to be pretty kick ass by the time I'm thirty, and I can't wait!!
I think if I had lived back in Salem, I would have been burned at the stake.
