No need to find a secret spell on how to kiss Rose McGowan: The former Charmed star will tell you what she likes – and what she doesn't.

"Don't be sloppy!" McGowan, 39, tells PEOPLE. "That's the worst. You could find the hottest guy on the planet and if he's a bad kisser, it just doesn't work."

The actress hosted Cosmopolitan and Maybeline's Kisses for the Troops event on Monday in New York City and spilled the beans on what she considers to be a sexy smooch.

Sarah Jessica Parker & More Power Lunch in N.Y.C.

Originally posted 11/14/2012 06:00AM

The phrase "ladies who lunch" got turbocharged on Monday when Cosmopolitan's editor-in-chief Joanna Coles assembled a posse of powerful women – including Sarah Jessica Parker, Rose McGowan, Diane von Furstenberg, Jennifer Westfeldt and Gayle King – for a mid-day meal at Michael's in New York.

Dressed in a leather jacket and pleated skirt, Parker was taken aback by the buzz in the room, which also included several newly elected Congresswomen.

"There are a few women [here] that I've known for a number of years and I'm a great admirer of," she told PEOPLE. "If they're powerful, that's just a byproduct. But I don't think of them that way. I just think of them as great women that I'm fortunate to know."

Westfeldt – who wrote and directed 2011's Friends with Kids – confessed that she power lunches "almost never."

"I'm a meal skipper, bagel on-the-run person," she said.

But as any power luncher knows, food is hardly the point.

As King put it, "I walk around this room and I feel good about being a girl."

Rose McGowan: How She Survived and Escaped a Cult

Originally posted 08/25/2011 03:20PM

Rose McGowan's first nine years were anything but traditional. They were spent in the Children of God sect, a group that extolled the virtues of free love and prepared for the second coming of Jesus.

Although it proved a harrowing experience – she fled with her family, she says, once the cult began advocating child-adult sexual relations – as the setting at first "was really idyllic," remembers the actress, 38, who rose to fame on TV's Charmed and now stars in Conan the Barbarian 3D.

"I grew up in pastoral settings" – specifically, the Italian countryside, where her parents were members of the local branch of the Children of God. But McGowan, who was born in Florence, knew instinctively that she didn't belong in such a place.

Not only is Sasquatch one of the apples of her eyes (the Conan the Barbarian star also has a Boston terrier named Happy), but she manages to get away with everything, too.

"Sasquatch isn't really great with toes. She likes to bite my toes and my hands and steal my underwear," McGowan told PEOPLE at Wednesday's InStyle Summer Soiree in West Hollywood. "Happy is [better behaved]."

Ashley Greene was ready to dance until the world ends! The actress threw her hands in the air after arriving at one of her favorite spots, Trousdale Lounge in L.A. Once she was at her table in the backroom, Greene greeted her friends with hugs. She seemed especially into the Britney Spears tunes, and she jumped up and twirled around to the music with one female friend, refreshing herself with cocktails in between dances. Also in the backroom: a subdued Chris Hemsworth, who was more interested in people-watching than dancing.
