Rose McGowan moved to the US when she was 10.
Apparently, it was more traumatizing than her time in a cult… or something.
(And CLEARLY a BILLION times more traumatizing than her “world-changing” abortion.)
According to Daily Mail:
Rose McGowan has claimed growing up as a teenager in America was ‘more traumatizing and more hardcore than being in a cult’.
The actress, 45, said she was bullied, called ugly, and had ‘things thrown at me every’ day after moving to the US from Tuscany, Italy, when she was 10 years old.
Speaking in an interview with FUBAR radio’s Calum McSwiggan on Wednesday, the former Charmed star told how her teen years were worse than her time spent in the controversial cult Children of God.
‘I’ve found America absolutely harrowing,’ she told FUBAR. ‘America was a lot more traumatizing to me actually. I found America much, much more hardcore than the cult.’
Rose, who along with her parents settled in Oregon, went on to explain how bad things got for her as a newcomer to the country.
She detailed: ‘In one state I lived in I had things thrown at me every day’, adding that people told her ‘you’re the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen’.
You know what’s funny?
I moved to this country when I was only slightly older than she was. I moved from Mexico to Indiana in 5th grade.
Indiana gets a bad rap by the coastal liberal elite – but only because they know nothing about it. People were really, REALLY welcoming of me. They wanted me to teach them how to say things in Spanish. I immediately excelled in school and made friends. It makes me wonder a) what kind of screwed up school district she moved to and b) if she’s embellishing for attention. Rose CLEARLY loves being the talk of the town.
Moving to the US is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. To this day, there is nothing I am more grateful for. I wake up every morning, and go to bed every night knowing I am truly blessed to be an American.
It’s sad her experience was so different. It makes me wonder how much of that experience is based on your own PERSPECTIVE.
Gratitude goes a long way.
