    To me, Red Sonya will always be Bridgette's best film but certainly not right for Rose, needs to be a bigger girl like Bridgette was in the original. Yeah, Rose HAD to get the plastic surgery from that wreck. I'm looking forward to seeing her in Conan though.

    First of all, she needs to leave the botox and facial plastic surgery alone already. @ Dan, I read what you posted. She had work done on her lips and cheekbones. Check out episodes of CHARMED. You'll see the difference. And it was one eye she had injured in the accident. So why are both stiff? LOL

    Second, I could never see her as Red Sonja. She had the role because her boyfriend, Robert Rodriguez, was handling it. We need someone with an amazon type body. Someone believable. Give an unknown actress the chance to make this role big. Casting someone popular doesn't always help. A small cameo from Bridgette Nielsen would be cool also.

    Good! I didn't want to see her ruin this role too! The studios will ruin it enough themselves.

    @sexyman1 "According to an article in the New York Post, McGowan suffered serious injuries in a car accident early in 2007. Riding as a passenger, her car was struck by another vehicle and the force of the impact drove her eyeglasses into her face. McGowan is quoted as saying, "I didn't realize I was hurt until I put my hand to my face and felt the flap of skin. My glasses had sliced me under my eye." After obtaining the services of a plastic surgeon, McGowan is reported to be suffering no long-lasting consequences from the incident."

    So yes, surgeries, but not for a purely vain reason. Understandable.
