Now she stars in the Aug. 19 reboot of “Conan the Barbarian,” and to promote the film, she spoke with The Advocate about her rocky childhood and her decidedly tame sexual orientation. (Note: she is not bisexual, but there is possibly one non-existent woman who could change her mind.)
“I’ve never even kissed a girl. Isn’t that funny?” she says. “The girls I think are cute look like guys, but then I think, but if they open their shirt, they’ll have breasts. You know that guy Brad [Goreski], who was Rachel Zoe’s assistant? I’d be attracted to a girl version of him.”
A girl version of Goreski does sound impossibly pretty.
McGowan hasn’t ruled out the possibility of sharing a love scene with another woman on film, though. In fact, she thinks it might giver her some cred.
“I’d be stoked to do a lesbian love scene,” she says. “When asked if I’ve kissed a girl, I could finally say, ‘Why, yes, I have. And I got paid.'”
The full transcript also includes details on McGowan’s runway youth with drag queens and — be still our hearts — her desire to make a “Jawbreaker” sequel.
