Rose McGowan shares amazing acting advice after revealing Adam Sandler casting note

The actress said she tweeted the casting note because it made her upset and laugh. McGowan would later call Hollywood "old fashioned."
In a June 17 tweet, McGowan called out the wardrobe requirements in a casting note. She claimed Adam Sandler required actresses auditioning to wear a "black (or dark) formfitting tank that shows off cleavage (push-up bras encouraged). And formfitting leggings or jeans."
She also told the ABC morning show that the casting note she tweeted is one of many examples but didn't want to reveal additional, specific examples.
Instead she said she hopes that the next girl coming up after her will know "she doesn't have to sell her body and her soul just to be a creative person. That isn't the fine that you pay at the gate, and it shouldn't be."
She advised other women in Hollywood to "know your worth and know that it's not OK to be treated like a piece of meat."
McGowan, meanwhile, said she doesn't care if she's blacklisted for calling out the casting note, adding "Bring it! You want to play, let's play." [THR]
A week later, Rose McGowan tweeted that she had been "fired by my wussy acting agent because I spoke up about the bullshit in Hollywood."
But, it begs the question - how does Adam Sandler's production team feel about the casting note? According to ABC News they "felt it was completely inappropriate and have made sure that it is not sent out again."
