Rose McGowan Slammed for Looking Too Much Like Michael Jackson (PHOTOS)

Sure, there are lots of perks of being a star. There are also just as many pitfalls. For instance, as your face ages or changes, your self-esteem can really take a hit once people start picking you apart. Rose McGowan recently lashed out at some particularly cruel critics who compared her face to the late Michael Jackson's. Take a look at stars side by side.

The trouble started when McGowan posted a photo of herself in sunglasses.

Admittedly, there is a slight resemblance. They have the same porcelain skin and seem to like the same fiery red lipstick.

More from The StirHigh Schooler Moonwalks to 'Billie Jean' Better Than Michael Jackson (VIDEO)

McGowan's face has changed quite a bit over the years, but unlike Jackson, she says it wasn't by choice. She had to get reconstructive surgery after a 2007 car accident. But while her face has changed, her snarky attitude hasn't. Lashing back at her haters, she wrote:

Has anyone stopped to think that Michael Jackson used to be black, and tried to turn himself into a white, possibly Irish person with a cleft chin and a tiny nose? I was born Irish. So f--k off losers.

Can't blame her for responding. It's infuriating. Though she's wasting her energy. Clearly the critics wanted to be mean and get a rise out of her. Comparing her plastic surgeries to that of MJ suggests she is obsessive or even compulsive about her face. He was obviously a troubled man. Why justify their nasty comments with a reaction -- it's not worth it.

Do you think McGowan looks like Michael Jackson?

The kind of work she has had done has nothing to do with her car accident. She is a liar and she does look like Michael Jackson in some shots.

I have said FOR EVER that she looks like Michael Jackson!! *sigh* Whatever, though. If she's happy with the way she looks then its none of my business.

I can see the resemblance. She responded appropriately to the loser critics with nothing better to do.

I adore her! I love her response! She looks NOTHING like Michael Jackson. I dont care what or why she has had cosmetic surgery, if she is happy with herself that is all that counts. If people spent half the energy on doing good things instead of being mean the world would be a much better place.

Who is she? Can't say I have ever heard of her! I find it rather ironic she is getting all upset about being compared to Mj,then shows absolutely no knowledge of the man at all by claiming he made himself white...error no its called vitiligo as he stated and also verified in the autopsy report, also tried to turn himself Irish? Really? What sort of moron is she? He spent some time there in the mid to late 2000's, so is she saying anyone who goes to Ireland is trying to be Irish? As for the author...she calls this idiots critics "mean" while calling a man whom she has never met deeply troubled.......err kind of hypocritical don't you think?!
