“I just got my permanent residency card from Mexico, and I’m so grateful to have it. This is a really healing land here and it is truly magical," she said in an interview on the cannabis-centric YouTube series The Dab Roast.
The Jawbreaker actor left the US shortly after the coronavirus pandemic began in early 2020.
“I’m in a place called Coba (on the Yucatan peninsula). I knew [Covid-19] was going to get really bad in America and I had a moment to figure out where I wanted to be. My lease was up in New York so I came here to Mexico where I’m living for a third of the price,” she wrote on social media earlier last year. “It’s beautiful here.”
McGowan recently expressed support for Evan Rachel Wood on social media after Wood accused ex-fiancé Marilyn Manson (real name Brian Warner) of abuse during their relationship.
“I am profoundly sorry to those who have suffered the abuse and mental torture of Marilyn Manson,” McGowan, who was engaged to Manson for two years before separating in 2001, wrote on Instagram on 1 February.
“When I say Hollywood is a cult, I mean the entertainment industry including the music industry is a cult,” she continued. “Cults protect the rot at the top. Theirs is a sickness that must be stopped. The industrial fame complex chooses who they protect and who they’ll let be their victims. For profit.
I stand with Evan Rachel Wood and all of those who have or will come forward. And please don’t pull out the ‘why did they take so much time to come forward?’ question that shames victims/survivors, it’s what stops others from coming forward. And to all of those who have covered for monsters, shame on you. Rise and say no more.”
