She hinted not-so-subtly through the medium of rhyme that the star of the film is Adam Sandler.

The Hollywood Reporter named McGowan's agents as Sheila Wenzel and Steve Muller at Innovative Artists.

The actor, who has starred in 51 films and television shows since the 90s and is now directing a feature film, said she has battled against sexist attitudes her entire career.

“When I did my first film, I was told by my agent that I would need to have long hair so men in this town would want to f--k me and hire me,” she said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “That was said to a 17-year-old.”
