Playing Rose McGowan Says She Blames Breakup With Marilyn Manson on Cocaine Use

Rose McGowan called off her two-year engagement to Marilyn Manson in 2001, but is only now talking about what caused the breakup.

The 41-year-old actress had a strange way of explaining the split with Andy Cohen on Thursday's Watch What Happens Live, first just saying the movie title Scarface.

"Think about it Andy... What was Scarface about?" she said of the gangster film that showcases hard drug use, predominantly cocaine.

"Coke," Cohen said. "He did too much blow and you were not down for it?"

"It was me, it was me," McGowan responded. "Actually, I don't know. I plead the Fourth [instead of Fifth]... I'm honest, always, I can't help it."

As for the best, McGowan recalled, "Fun! People are like, 'uhhh.' And I'm like, 'Shut up, it's a rock star, you idiots!'"
