Movie castings that ruined relationships – Nicki Swift


Robert Rodriguez cast Rose McGowan in Planet Terror in 2006, and they quickly became an item … even though he was married with kids to Elizabeth Avellán at the time. Rodriguez divorced his wife and got engaged to McGowan, but they split before ever walking down the aisle.

The relationship sounded far from healthy: McGowan said in her book, Brave (via Vanity Fair), that she’d confided in Rodriguez about movie producer Harvey Weinstein allegedly sexually assaulting her in 1997 (a claim Weinstein has denied). McGowan alleged that Rodriguez played “mind games” with her after the revelation, which the director denied. Rodriguez told Variety that he cast her in Planet Terror to spite Weinstein, whose company was distributing the movie.

Rodriguez even hinted that he regretted making the movie at all. “For me personally, it cost me my marriage of 16 years, my family, a large dose of sanity, and for years I have grappled with the sobering idea that maybe I made a grave error in standing up at all, when no one was even asking me to,” he shared. “The reason I’m saying this is because it’s very clear to me now that when someone does what Harvey Weinstein did, the devastation goes far beyond predator and victim.”
