Rose is currently featured in the May issue of ‘Manhattan’ Magazine! An excellent interview and photoshoot accompany the article:
Although she boasts plenty of confidence in the visual offerings, the actress confesses to being extremely introverted as a youngster.
‘I was very, very shy when I was little,’ she admits. ‘Acting lets you access all those different parts of yourself to make the character authentic.’
Rose is the youngest of four children born to Robin, a now-retired market researcher, and his wife, Jane, who works in the office of an Aboriginal primary school.
Although she loves hailing from Down Under, she says she is very attached to the Big Apple.
‘Australia is my emotional home, but New York is my second home,’ she explains. ‘I feel like myself in the city, and that’s all you want from a place. It’s an achievement to have found that. But we Australians are wandering people, aren’t we?’

American audiences hungry for more British comedy and more of Bridesmaids actress Rose Byrne, are in for a treat: I Give It a Year, which stars Byrne and Rafe Spall (One Day), has secured a U.S. distributor. Magnolia Pictures will release the film in the U.S. later this year.
I Give It a Year features Byrne and Spall as a couple that no one believes will last — not their families, not their friends, not even their minister. Where other romantic comedies would begin rolling the credits, I Give It a Year picks up on the realities — and the hilarities — of a marriage start to sink in.
The directorial debut of Dan Mazer (writer of Borat and Brüno), I Give It a Year opened in U.K. theaters in early February and had its North American premiere at South By Southwest last month. A U.S. release date is yet to be set.
With a huge thanks to Summer for designing and coding it, there is a shiny new layout at the Gallery! The previous layout had been up for nearly three years, so a change was definitely in order. I hope everyone likes the new look as much as I do!
Also, nearly 100 event photos from earlier in the year have been added to the gallery. Check out all the latest additions:

Web-magazine ‘Lifestyle Mirror‘ has a lovely new feature on Rose, complete with a colourful photoshoot, excellent article, and a behind-the-scenes video:
Rose Byrne: Coming Up Roses
For as busy as Rose Byrne has been over the past 10, years, it’s a wonder that this Australian actor has managed to stay under the radar. But with six feature-length films coming out in 2013, including forthcoming The Place Beyond the Pines (March 29) where she plays the wife of Bradley Cooper opposite Ryan Gosling, and The Internship with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, we’re bound to be seeing more of our favorite Aussie—whether she likes it or not.
“I really do live a very anonymous life,” she says in her delicate accent over the phone from L.A. “The publicity and all those things, it just comes with the job.” It’s a very Rose Byrne statement, indicative of both her down to earth attitude and the hint of shyness that comes with it. She can come across like the kind of celebrity who you meet once and imagine spending a Sunday together in pajamas, watching one of her favorite television series—Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Girls, or Australia’s The Slap.
