She is one of the most stylish women in Hollywood. Now Australian actor Rose Byrne shown off her modelling skills in the latest campaign for Oroton. The Bridesmaids star, 36, is face of the accessories label and sports the brand’s new season collection of sunglasses and bags in the ads, shot by famed photographer, Boo George.
Byrne — who co-founded production company the Dollhouse Collective — is a regular on best dress lists. But when asked how she feels about being known as a “global style icon”, Byrne told Sunrise: “I feel very flattered“.
The stunning brunette is based in New York’s West Village where she lives with her boyfriend, Ant-Manactor Bobby Cannavale. Speaking to Vanity Fair this month, Byrne said “He’s a real romantic … I’m a very lucky girl”. Byrne is currently shooting X-Men: Apocalypse — where she plays CIA agent Moira MacTaggert — along side Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Nicholas Holt. And while she is known for serious roles — including playing lawyer Ellen Parsons in TV drama Damages — Byrne has a knack for comedy, most famously for her standout role in Bridesmaids with Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig. “It’s like doing a drama but on top of that you have to get a laugh,” Byrne told The Guardian, of acting in comedies. “It’s scientific, it’s technical and it’s also like lightning in a bottle.”

The original comedy Neighbors was a rare non-visual effects-filled studio-released summer blockbuster, it ended up being a huge hit when it was released back in 2013. When inexpensive movies make studios huge profits, it usually means that the sequel green light isn’t far off – and the Nicholas Stoller-directed comedy is no different. Now Neighbors 2 is set for release next summer, and it has just been revealed that it has a subtitle which gives us some insight into what the movie will be about: Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. Really, we should have seen this coming.
Production Weekly posted the full title, which seems to sync up with what we’ve learned so far about the sequel currently in production. Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising will revolve around a sorority house moving in next door to the family played by Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne from the first film. When they have trouble dealing with the sorority, they turn to their previous nemesis, played by Zac Efron, for help. We assume shenanigans ensue at this point.
As was confirmed earlier this week, Chloe Moretz has been cast in a major role in the film, and it’s expected that she will be the primary antagonist sorority sister. The female Zac Efron if you will. Moretz was the highlight of the Kick-Ass movies and we know Hit Girl could get pretty vile, so Moretz should feel right at home with the exceptionally vulgar comedy. In fact, we’re more than a little curious to see what this plot will have her up to.

Entertainement Weekly just released the first stills of X-Men: Apocalypse and even it’s mosty about the mutants, one of them features Rose as Moira MacTaggert, have a look below!
Unfortunately, Rose wasn’t at the Comic Con yesterday but here’s a description of what happens in the first footage of the movie in which Rose appears! Let’s hope she will be part of the movie promotion later!
Straight from their Hall H panel at San Diego, Twentieth Century Fox screened X-Men: Apocalypse Comic-Con footage and our own Edward Douglas described it as follows:
The footage opened with a nuclear explosion and we cut to Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey gasping, saying that she had seen the end of the world and all this death, to which James McAvoy says that it was only a dream. There’s a voice over from Oscar Isaac about how he’s been seen as a God. ‘I’ve been called any things over many lifetimes, Ra, Krishna, Yahweh, and the footage shows Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert telling Charles about how when people find out about mutants they, form cults that worship them but that she investigated one such person from the beginning of time that’s thought to be the first mutant.
Apocalypse gives a big voiceover speech to the young mutants saying they’ve lost their way by following blind leaders. ‘Everything you’ve built will fall and from the ashes of the world, we’ll build a better one.’ Then we see Apocalypse in a hood as Magneto asks him “Who the F are you?” and Apocalypse responds “Come and See” as we get to see Oscar Isaac in the full costume and he looks exactly like in the comics.
We learn from Professor X that Apocalypse can control other mutants and we see a scene where the X-Men are facing Apocalypse with a bunch of them including Storm and Ben Hardy as Archangel sided with Apocalypse, as well as Magneto who uses his powers to pull a slumped-over Charles in a wheelchair towards him. We get a glimpse of all the characters… but just a shot of Nightcrawler, Jubilee and Olivia Munn’s Psylocke. I didn’t even see Havoc and Cyclops only had one shot as well. We did see a quick Quicksilver shot. We don’t see their powers because that’s FX that is still being worked on.
The titles during this footage said ‘Prepare for Apocalypse.’Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique says that a great storm approaches and that’s why she’s here. To fight. We see Professor X under the Cerebro helmet a few times as he comments that Apocalypse seems to be enhancing his power. ‘I’ve never felt power like this before.’ The footage ended with the classic Professor X look, in a wheelchair with a bald head (the crowd went wild for that, too).

Over the Fourth of July weekend, former Disney honcho Michael Eisner caused a bit of a stir when he suggested that it was extremely rare to find extremely beautiful women who were also deeply funny. “From my position, the hardest artist to find is a beautiful, funny woman,” he told the beautiful, funny Goldie Hawn during a session at the Aspen Ideas Festival. “By far. They usually — boy am I going to get in trouble, I know this goes online — but usually, unbelievably beautiful women, you being an exception, are not funny.” […]
How widespread is this prejudice against the pretty? Do executives harbor a bias, perhaps unconscious, against attractive women trying out for comedy roles, wondering whether or not their looks are inducing laughs? Most importantly: Does this finally explain why Rose Byrne is not yet the brightest comedic light in Hollywood?
I bring up Byrne specifically because I’ve wondered for some time now why she isn’t headlining two or three comedy flicks a year. That question became all the more urgent after a weekend viewing of “Spy.” Her haughty Hungarian villain steals the show, providing a perfect foil for Melissa McCarthy’s newly minted CIA agent. Byrne was similarly riotous in last year’s “Neighbors,” playing a sassy straight woman to Seth Rogen’s dumpy hubby.
The post-“Bridesmaids” career paths of Byrne and McCarthy most clearly demonstrates what Hollywood thinks of attractive funny people as opposed to their Plain Jane kin. Despite inspiring just as many laughs as McCarthy as one of the eponymous wedding party members — and, arguably, having to do it in a more difficult manner, one that didn’t rely on bodily humor to get the giggles rolling — Byrne has spent the last few years locked into supporting roles.
