Classic Quotes by Rose McGowan and Marilyn Manson about their relationship:
"[He is] charming and sweet and soft." Rose McGowan 2/2002
"He'd get bomb threats. I was always on guard. I just got tired. In that way I do feel a bit of a failure." Rose McGowan 2/2002
"There is great love, but our lifestyle difference is, unfortunately, even greater." Rose McGowan 1/18/2001
"My ex-girlfriend made the mistake of renting 'The Doom Generation' and telling me what a great actress Rose was. And I shamefully spent the night talking to this skag, who tried to masturbate me while a video of 'Doom Generation' was playing in the background. I wished for a moment the girl in the movie, Rose McGowan, was here, and maybe I would let her masturbate me. I remember reading an interview with Rose about her fucked-up childhood and her father, who was the leader of some religious cult. For some reason, I feel like she would be able to relate to what I'm going through - not at the moment but in general." Marilyn Manson 1997
"It was a little messy because, as I say, I was with somebody else at the time, who I left - one, because I didn't really want to be with that person, and two, because I felt I'd had so much tragedy I needed to go off, go crazy, and maybe live on the outside for a while. That was my plan, anyways, and ironically it coincided with meeting the person who has given my life a strong foundation and a relationship in which I feel safe. It's interesting how my plan backfired in the best possible way." Rose McGowan
"Well, I like to say that this year I've ended up being a professional groupie. I took about 10 months off to adjust to the touring thing with Manson. I kept trying to break up with him before he went on tour because I am no man's Jerry Hall. Please. In fact, I would say I'm the one he has to worry about." Rose McGowan
"Rose is the only girl I'd ever get married to, and I'm pretty sure I'm the only man she would marry." Marilyn Manson 2/16/1999
"I couldn't take his lifestyle. The drugs - more than you could imagine. I realized it wasn't a lifestyle I wanted to be married to. I have never been a rock chick." Rose McGowan 10/2001
"Well you know, I'm not saying I'm happy about it, but I think that people have to live their lives and neither one of us wanted to change who we were - and I think that's the important part. In the end you've got to be happy about yourself." Marilyn Manson 10/2001
"I was at this really stupid S&M theme restaurant in New York called La Nouvelle Justine where I had to endure watching fat New Jersey people in khaki pants getting spanked by some cute waiter. So I had a foot slave who's rubbing my feet and he says, 'This old friend of mine from Florida has a really big crush on you. Do you know who Marilyn Manson is?' Three months later in L.A. at a screening of 'Gummo' that I was late for and locked out of, I was out there cussing and kicking the door, and Manson came out. And here we are...Happy with two dogs." Rose McGowan
"I'd heard that Marilyn had had a crush on me since he saw my first film 'The Doom Generation.' I thought he was weird and a bit grotesque but I was into country music at the time. When I saw him coming out of the theatre, I opened the door for him, stared him straight in the eye and said, 'I hear you have a crush on me.' He looked a bit stunned then laughed. I loved the laugh and now I'm in love with the man." Rose McGowan
"It's funny, when I moved to Hollywood I had mentioned the only person I wanted to meet was Rose McGowan. And I met her a day later. And it was kind of ironic, and I haven't left her side since then." Marilyn Manson
