Rose McGowan slams ex-fiance

Rose McGowan has mocked her former fiancé Robert Rodriguez.

The 40-year-old actress - who was in a relationship with the 'Sin City' director for two years until 2009 - claimed the filmmaker's planned remake of 1968 futuristic film 'Barbarella' ground to a halt because he turned his back on a huge budget as he "doesn't know" how to work outside of his home state of Texas.

Asked during a Facebook Q&A how close the remake - in which she would have starred in the title role made famous by Jane Fonda - came to being made, she said: "We had $80 million to shoot it in Germany, but he pulled the plug because he doesn't know how to shoot outside of Texas."

The director previously claimed he didn't want to make the movie in Germany because it would mean being away from the five children he has with ex-wife Elizabeth Avellan for too long.

He said: "Germany offered us a $70 million budget, which would have been by far the biggest budget I ever would have had for a movie. But I had to shoot it in Germany and post it in Germany.

"Nothing against Germany, but I have five kids and I was like, 'God, I don't know if we can do that. I don't know if I can be away that long.'

"It was a real bummer. We had all this artwork and screen tests of what it would look like. It was a really cool, R-rated, sexy version of a 'Star Wars' movie... It was gonna be really great."
