Chloe Sevigny – The name Chloe was an alias of the nature goddess Demeter, and it’s Greek for “young green shoot.” This former model specializes in independent films, and she even received a Best Supporting Actress nomination for her role in Boys Don’t Cry.
Rose McGowan – Once engaged to controversial rocker Marilyn Manson, this actress was born in Italy and has appeared in films such as Jawbreaker and Grindhouse. Fans of television’s Charmed will also remember her as Paige Matthews.
