Valentine’s day may be very far away, but Rose Byrne is already our betrothed. 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.
#3Rose 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.
#18 She can sing! She showed her talent for singing in her first comedy, Get Him to The Greek, where she plays pop star Jackie Q.
#19 Byrne has supported UNICEF Australia by being the face of the 2007 Designers United campaign and a member of Tropfest jury in 2006 and Tropfest@Tribeca in 2007.
#20 Last but not least! Her nickname is Chabs, Rosie.

We are already a fan of this glowstick’s talent, but her quotes will make you fan of her opinions too. So here are ten quotes you would love to quote in your next conversation.
In this time of self-doubting and tech-savvy age of digital platforms, we often underestimate ourselves. Rose has captured that essence very well and quoted this on how we should always love ourselves.

After reading the quote above, we can clearly state that Rose was never comfortable in her comfort zone. She not only wanted to think but jump out of the box to explore the whole new world of opportunities.

“You understand why feminists are furious, we’re still talking about this?” Does this line ring a bell about a beautiful and unstoppable lady? Yes, we’re talking about none other than Rose Byrne. The Sunshine star is known for her irresistible beauty and talent. With her decision of taking up offbeat roles, Byrne’s emergence has revolutionized the prospects of acting. In the times when women were more into glamorous roles, she shattered glass by taking up comic roles and stunned the audience with her performances in movies like Bridesmaids and Neighbors. She was also critically acclaimed for her movie Spy (2015) where she played the role of a terrorist. Though she is known for her comic roles, she didn’t start out doing comedy. Before her breakthrough, Rose played several small roles in big films like Marie Antoinette, Wicker Park, Troy, and The Dead Girl. From horror films to romantic comedies to serious dramas, there’s nothing this talented actress can’t do.
Our favorite Rosie – Rosa – Rose Byrne was born as Mary Rose Byrne in Balmain, a suburb of Sydney. She is of Irish and Scottish descent and has three siblings. According to a statement given by her, her mother is an atheist, but she and her father are agnostic.
Every big break comes after a lot of rejections and things were no different for Rose. Byrne once expressed in an interview how growing up, she faced plenty of rejections from film schools. But little did she know that she had a long way to go. She seized her first role for Dallas‘ Doll just at the age of 15! Amazing! Right? Byrne has explored a lot of genres that brushed her as actress par excellence. Well because according to her, you have to be aggressive in this (Cinema) business, you cannot be ‘Boxed’. From the movies like Echo Point, Two Hands, and Three Sisters to the movies like Star Wars, Sunshine, and 28 Weeks Later, Byrne gave remarkable performances and tasted success in each one of them. Not only Cinema and Theatre, but Byrne also made her mark in television too. She was nominated twice for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding supporting actress in drama series in 2009 and 2010. She played her role in all fifty-nine episodes of the series Damages until its finale in September 2012 for which she also won two Golden Globes! Her turn to comedy led to The Hollywood Reporter calling her “the most in-demand supporting actress for comedies”
Just when we thought she could not amaze us more, let us tell you that she is considered as one of the most beautiful women around the world. She ranked 9th and 15th in Australian FHM “Sexiest Women in the World” in 2001 and 2006 respectively. She has been featured several times in “The Annual Independent Critics List of the 100 Most Beautiful Famous Faces From Around the World”. Quite a Men’s favorite, Bryne has been ranked 78th on AskMen’s Top 99 ‘Most Desirable Women’ in 2012. She was also featured in the “Most Beautiful People” list of 2007 in Who Magazine and People ranked her 7th in their list of ‘Best Dressed Celebrities’ in 2015.
We know she is a stunner on-screen, but do you know that she is as stunning off-screen as well? Byrne has been supporting UNICEF Australia by being the face of the 2007 Designers United campaign and a member of Tropfest jury in 2006 and Tropfest at Tribeca in 2007. Rose Byrne has supported the Motion Picture and Television fund foundation for Creative Arts. Not only this but she also once attended the Ads-Up event to support refugees who cannot go back to their country. No wonder she is a people’s person. She also openly advocates for the LGTBQ+ community. In 2016, her husband Bobby shared a photo of Rose in a “Say I do down Under” shirt with an Australian Map which clearly shows that she stands up for country and countrymen. Speaking of her husband, She and Bobby Cannavale have been together since 2012 and birthed two children named Rocco and Rafa, aged two and three respectively. Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale are a power pairing of talent. They do projects together again and again and again, though they don’t do press as a couple. In the seven years they’ve been a couple, they’ve worked together five times and are about to make it two more.
Rose Byrne has been often described as minimalistic. With her charming smile and talent, she has locked our hearts with her. Be it her fashion sense or her character, she has always been fierce and fun!
