Did plastic surgery force Rose out of a role?

Christina Ricci and Emile Hirsch will tear up the screen next summer in a live-action remake of the old "Speed Racer" cartoon. But a source close to the writer/directors says their first choices were Rose McGowan and Zac Efron. McGowan, 34, has admitted to having plastic surgery for an eye injury related to a car accident. But casting skeptics suspect she has had much more done, and that it cost her the role. "The studio felt like she was hard to recognize and worried that by the time the movie hit theaters, fans might not know who she was," said an insider. A rep for the Charmed alum said "she was not pursuing this role."
