Rose Byrne is Lifestyle Mirror’s their latest cover girl as photographed by Mike Piscitelli, styled by Penny Lovell and photographed at The Standard Downtown Hotel in Los Angeles. On the promo trail as Bradley Cooper’s wife in the new film The Place Beyond the Pines, alongside hottie Ryan Gosling, the down to earth Aussie loves her privacy and staying under the radar while always keeping her feet firmly on the ground.
Inside she shares:
Playing a variety of roles and genres: “They are very few people who get to really play diverse characters, particularly women and especially in film,” she says. “It can be scary and risky but that’s what interests me as an artist—it’s to do things that push the boundary a little bit and that push me out of my comfort zone.” [She’s played a doctor, duchesse, spy, pop star, lawyer, queen, Princess Leia’s handmaiden, and bridesmaid, in everything from sci-fi to horror, drama to comedy].
Working on Bridesmaids: “Working with Kristen [Wiig] and Maya [Rudolph] and Wendi [McLendon-Covey] and Melissa [McCarthy] and Ellie [Kemper] was really a dream come true,” Byrne says. “You never get to work with that many women on anything. A movie like that does not come along very often…I think that’s only because I’ve been acting for so long, I have a perspective on it that is probably more realistic than if I had started later or if I had huge success at a very young age…I’ve just been slow and steady, and that’s probably a big part of it.”
Playing Ellen Parsons in Damages: “I loved doing Damages,” she says. “It’s really like you’re in a novel. It’s very intimate how much you spend time with your character [on a TV show]—you end up knowing her better than anybody.” With Close by her side, the role earned her two Golden Globe and two Emmy nominations, and plenty of recognition.
