New update on the ‘Neighbors 2’ with the SiriusXFM interview and the AOL Build Session a few days ago. There’s pictures in the gallery and a video just below!
Rose Byrne is in the midst of May madness. On Friday, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising comes out in theaters across the U.S. Both joyously silly and surprisingly on-the-nose, the film is a follow up to Nicholas Stoller’s 2014 comedy Neighbors. The entire cast is reunited, from Byrne and Seth Rogan, who star as Kelly and Mac Radner, suburban spouses coming to terms with parenthood; to Zac Efron as former fraternity bro extraordinaire Teddy Saunders; Ike Barinholtz and Carla Gallo as Mac and Kelly’s misguided best friends; and Lisa Kudrow as the publicity-conscious university dean. Even Elise and Zoey Vargas, who played Mac and Kelly’s baby daughter Stella in the first film, have reprised their role. Two years ago the Radners entered into a prank-filled rivalry with a neighboring fraternity, while this time their enemy is a little more relatable: a sorority created by a group of young women (Chloë Grace Moretz, Kiersey Clemons, and Beanie Fieldstein) who just want to party on their own terms.
If that isn’t enough, next week Byrne will celebrate the release of X-Men: Apocalypse, another blockbuster sequel with an impressive ensemble cast. “X-Men is more the emotional and intelligent end of the superhero spectrum for my taste,” she comments over the phone. “They always bring something operatic to the pictures.”
Raised in a suburb of Sydney, Australia, and currently based in New York, Byrne grew up watching the British sitcom Fawlty Towers with her family. “John Cleese was one of my acting idols,” she recalls. At 13, she made her film debut in Dallas Doll (1994). In her early 20s, she dropped out of university in Sydney to work on her second film, Two Hands (2009), with Heath Ledger.
Recent roles in Get Him to the Greek (2010), Bridesmaids (2011), Spy (2015), and the Broadway play You Can’t Take It With You (2014) have cemented Byrne’s status as a comedian, but she is by no means a one-note actor. Over the course of her career, she’s worked with noted directors such as Sofia Coppola, Peter Weir, George Lucas, Danny Boyle, Paul Feig, and Derek Cianfrance, and held her own against seasoned thespians like her Damages co-star Glenn Close.
“I think comedy is very hard,” says Byrne. “It’s very scientific getting the beats of it. Comedy and drama are challenging in different ways, but they come from the same place,” she continues. “The stakes are very high when something’s funny and the stakes also have to be high for something to be dramatic.”

“Don’t you have a lock?” Rose Byrne asks, her forehead under her bathing cap creasing with concern. We’re in the women’s locker room at the YMCA on 14th Street, steps away from the pool — the only pool, Byrne has informed me, that she has found in her decade-plus of living in New York that even comes close to replicating the spacious outdoor ones in her native Sydney, Australia. Byrne hasn’t been here in six weeks, ever since she gave birth to her first child — Rocco, with Vinyl star Bobby Cannavale — which might be why she looks so dismayed that I’m now holding up the works by forgetting something as obvious as a padlock. Or maybe it’s just that Byrne’s face — while very pretty, even in a bathing cap — is naturally melancholic, with its downturned pout and wounded Bambi eyes. Nonetheless, I feel a flash of guilt that I’ve delayed what might well be an innate Australian need to plunge into water by failing to predict that this YMCA, one of the seeming last bastions of middle-class decency in all of Manhattan, might be rife with pool-locker thieves.
A metallic clang sounds out behind us, and an elderly woman in a skort shuffles by with a walker. Byrne gives me a wry look, like: See? There’s an element here.
Which is a small but telling example of the comedic sensibility that has made Byrne, 36, “the most in-demand supporting actress for comedies,” as The Hollywood Reporter rather specifically put it. […]

Susan Sarandon and Rose Byrne were in New York last week promoting their new film The Meddler, in which Sarandon plays an overbearing mother who moves to L.A. to be closer to her screenwriter daughter, played by Byrne. Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, who based major elements of the script on her own relationship wth her mother, The Meddler marks Sarandon’s best role in years. But with Bernie Sanders in town for the primaries, it was impossible not to begin our conversation with some politics, a topic the notoriously outspoken Sarandon never shies away from. Here, a conversation with Sarandon and Byrne about what it means to be a mother, women in Hollywood, and feeling the Bern.
It’s an exciting week to be in New York with the primaries here.
Rose Byrne: I love America. I’m addicted to watching the news here. It’s just so entertaining.
Susan Sarandon: This is a particularly interesting election cycle. They’re not all this exciting.
Rose, are you invested in American politics?
RB: As a foreigner, it’s just so different from Australian politics, in terms of the theatrics, and the money behind it.
SS: Well, this would have been an ordinary shoo-in, and usually New York doesn’t even matter, but it’s just because Bernie’s in this, it’s made it into this thing. And then of course, Trump, which everyone thought was so funny. It’s not so funny anymore.
RB: It’s just fascinating to watch. I can’t stop.

Yesterday, Rose was at the Live! with Kelly and Michael on ABC. She talked mostly about Spy obviously and her experience on Broadway! See all about it below!
New photoshoot! And a truly amazing one! Rose featured in a Violet Grey interview with a brand new photoshoot shot by Naj Jamaï, styled by Penny Lovell, makeup by Kate Lee. The pictures are absolutely breathtaking!
Do you remember the first time you saw Rose Byrne? Perhaps it was on Damages, where she appeared on screen, equal parts magnetic and fragile, opposite the great Glenn Close. Or perhaps it was in Bridesmaids, where her character Helen ran circles around Kristin Wiig’s Annie in the great competition that is the contemporary wedding party. Byrne, who moved to the U.S. from her native Sydney, Australia over 15 years ago, is memorable for her doll-like beauty, with her wide eyes and tiny nose. But she’s also wickedly funny, full of zingers and withering glares, an accomplished “straight man” who can hold her own with Melissa McCarthy and then run off with your heart.
Over the years, Byrne’s evolved into an actress to watch both on and off the screen. She’s a style icon for chic smart girls, as comfortable in glittering Chanel as she is in sleek Calvin Klein. Her look is youthful but still tasteful, proper but not prim. “There is something very classical in her beauty but then there is also something very unique to her and the proportions of her face,” says makeup artist Kate Lee, creative director for this month’s Beauty Test and frequent collaborator with the actress. “A little bit like Jean Shrimpton. She’s incredibly easy to imagine transitioning genres and decades. I think her beauty is truly very versatile.”
