Today is Rose’s 37th birtday! We hope she will have an amazing day full of love and happiness! Happy birthday Rose!
Damages alumna Rose Byrne has been cast opposite Oprah Winfrey in HBO Films’ The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.
The film tells the true story of Henrietta Lacks, an African American woman whose cells were used to create the first immortal human cell line. Told through the eyes of her daughter, Deborah Lacks (Winfrey), the film chronicles her search to learn about the mother she never knew and to understand how the unauthorized harvesting of Lacks’ cancerous cells in 1951 led to unprecedented medical breakthroughs, changing countless lives and the face of medicine forever.
Byrne will play Rebecca Skloot, a young journalist who, in her efforts to tell the story of Henrietta Lacks and her “immortal” cells, forms a close bond with Deborah, Henrietta’s charismatic, complicated daughter, played by Winfrey. Rebecca’s quest resulted in the NY Times best-selling book, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.
Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated Byrne’s most recent film credits include X-Men: Apocalypse and Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. She previously starred opposite Glenn Close in FX’s Damages. She has also formed a Sydney-based production company called The Dollhouse Collective, whose mission statement is to focus on being champions of change, risk takers, friends and passionate storytellers. Byrne is repped by CAA and RGM.

Several famous Australians, including Lachlan and James Murdoch and actress Rose Byrne, have been invited to join one of the world’s most illustrious clubs.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced on Wednesday it was recruiting a record 683 new members to try to diversify its largely male and white membership.
A furore erupted in January when the academy announced its nominees for February’s awards ceremony and for the second straight year black actors were snubbed.
The academy went global in its new search, with at least 13 of the 283 international invitees Australian, although most were white.
Joining the Murdochs and Byrne on the list are horror film director James Wan and the large contingent of Australian crew members who won Oscars this year for their work on George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road.
They include production designers Colin Gibson and Lisa Thompson, editor Margaret Sixel, make-up and hairstyling artist Lesley Vanderwalt, sound mixer Ben Osmo, sound editor David White and visual effects expert Tom Wood. Australian make-up artist Dave Elsey, who won the Oscar in 2011 for The Wolfman, and cinematographer Adam Arkapaw, also received invites, along with Kiwis Cliff Curtis and Taika Waititi.
The academy’s membership is 90 per cent white and 75 per cent male. Of the 683 new invitees, 46 per cent are female and 41 per cent are people of colour. With the addition of the new members being invited, the academy’s female membership will rise from 25 per cent to 27 per cent and for people of colour from eight per cent to 11 per cent.
“We’re proud to welcome these new members to the academy, and know they view this as an opportunity and not just an invitation, a mission and not just a membership,” academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs said.
Other new members include Anthony Anderson, Regina King, America Ferrara, Marlon Wayans, Rachel McAdams, Kate Beckinsale, Tom Hiddleston, Alicia Vikander and Mark Rylance.
I just updated the gallery with pictures from the Ninth Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic (June 04 in Jersey City) and the Glamour Women Of The Year Awards (June 07 in London). More will be added soon!

EXCLUSIVE: Larrikins, which is Aussie slang for “maverick” or “rebel,” is digging deep Down Under. DreamWorks Animation has culled together an all-Aussie cast of Hugh Jackman, Naomi Watts, Rose Byrne and Ben Mendelsohn to join previously announced fellow Aussie Margot Robbie as voice actors for its new film.
Tim Minchin and Chris Miller are directing the animal rock ‘n’ roll musical. Minchin, composer-lyricist of the five-time Tony-winning Matilda The Musical, is composing the music for Larrikins. The film is expected to shift over from Fox to Universal for release, given the NBCUni acquisition of DWA two months ago. It was originally scheduled to hit theaters on February 16, 2018.
Rounding out the all-Australian cast are Jacki Weaver (Secret City, Silver Linings Playbook), Josh Lawson (House Of Lies, Free Birds), Damon Herriman (Flesh And Bone, The Lone Ranger) and Ewen Leslie (Janet King, The Mule).
The story follows a desert-dwelling marsupial known as a bilby who has lived under a rock his entire life before he is kicked out by his parents and told to get a life. He does so by going on a road trip with a band in the Australian Outback. The project was written by Harry Cripps and is being produced by Gregg Taylor, who transitioned from his head of development job at DreamWorks Animation to go all out on this film.
