Just when we think that this is the best we can have of her, she never fails to mesmerize us with her talent, beauty, and charm. Rose is an epitome of confidence and boldness, which inspires women all around the world to take a step ahead in doing what they love. You may be knowing how brilliant of an actress she is or what she wore at last award night she attended, but here are twenty facts which even you will be surprised to know.
#1 Rose Byrne is Australian. She was born in Balmain, Sydney, New South Wales.
#2 For her brilliant performance in 2018, Vanity Fair dubbed her as a comic superstar flying under the radar.
#3 Rose has her birthday on July 24, 1979, meaning she is 40 years old right now.
#4 In an interview with BlackBook, Rose has said that she believes human existence came from a series of chemical accidents and that she probably thinks this way because she was brought up without religion. “My mum is [atheist]. I’d say my dad was agnostic”, she said.
#5 Rose lives in Brooklyn, New York with actor Bobby Cannavale and their sons. She has two sons.
#6 Rose has won the 2007 AFI International Award for Best Actress and the 2010 IGN Summer Movie Award for Best Actress for her work in Damages. Along with the rest of the Bridesmaids cast, she took home the award for Best Cast at the 2012 New York Film Critics Online Awards and the Washington D.C. Area Film Critics Association Award.
#7 She is a feminist by heart. In an interview with The Times, she said, “I think of myself as a feminist. Most of what we currently know and think about gender originated in mythology, so it’s a myth that men have an inherent right to be in power”.
#8 Byrne may look extremely fashionable on award nights, but usually, her style can be described as minimalist chic. Usually, she can be spotted dressed down in jeans, but when she glams up she really brings her A-game too.
#9 Byrne is known for signature brown hair, often styled in a bob with curls or waves. Recently, however, the Golden Globes-nominated actress swapped her brunette locks for a blonde ‘do, but our beloved rose is actually a brunette!
#10 Rose loves to play and be open about herself, in one of the shows of Ellen she showed off her American accent in 2015 and played a hilarious game of Guesstures in her 2017 appearance.
#11 According to Celebrity Net Worth, Rose’s net worth is $USD16 million ($AUD23.5 million).
#12 She is an ally and advocate for the LGBTQ+ community. In 2016, Bob shared a photo of Rose in a “Say I Do Down Under” shirt with a caption that reads #sayidoitdownunder my lady wants you to know she’s in favor of her home country joining the rest of the enlightened world in giving people the right to choose whomever they want to marry”.
#13 Rose’s weight is about 53 kilos and 1.3m tall. Rose has maintained her figure even after giving birth. When asked about her diet and workout plan, she told InStyle that she simply walks around New York a lot! It seems like Rose is one of the lucky few who don’t have to deal with weight gain and weight loss so much.
#14 Australian actor, director, and writer Brendan Cowell (Game of Thrones, Ruben Guthrie) was Byrne’s boyfriend for six years. Cowell even moved to New York after Byrne’s career started taking off! The couple called it quits in 2010.
#15 Rose strongly condemns beauty standards set by the industry. She once quoted “Here in LA, the standard of beauty is kind of ridiculous. I want to be doing this when I’m in my fifties and sixties and this isn’t what I’m going to look like.”
#16 Rose may look bold, but deep down she is extremely sensitive about her career as an actress. She once said, “I think all this insecurity is partly because as an actor, you are told when you can practice your craft…you get rejected on a daily basis, purely for who you are…my heart breaks every time I don’t get a part.”
#17 At 18, Byrne left her native Australia to come to Hollywood after winning a role in Star Wars Episode II. Also, she admitted that about 90 percent of her fan mail is still about Star Wars.
