“I don’t care, bring it,” McGowan, 41, told ABC News of the possibility she could be blacklisted. “You want to to play, let’s play.”
“It made me laugh and it made me sad,” McGowan said of the casting note. “I was like, really, still?”
McGowan announced in a tweet this week, that she was dropped by her agency, Innovative Artists. The actress told ABC News she learned of it through an email.
“I just wrote back, ‘You’re hilarious,’” McGowan said. “That was my response. ‘You’re hilarious.’”
“Come on, Hollywood, get a better script,” she added. “This one’s predictable.”
Innovative Artists says it was McGowan who told them she no longer wanted to be represented by the agency as she transitioned from actor to director.
Representatives for Adam Sandler deny any association with the casting note. The actor’s team told ABC News they, “…felt it was completely inappropriate and have made sure that it has not been sent out again.”
McGowan called the response from Sandler’s team a “wonderful start.”
“Know you worth and know that it’s not OK to be treated like a piece of meat,” McGowan said.
