A few weeks ago, I came across an old video of Rose quite rare and I saved it for later. Now we’re thursday and what a better day for a throwback update! This video shows an event for the australian TV show Breakers, from 1998 or 1999 and we get to see a cutie teenage Rose!
I wasn’t expecting Rose to be at the ‘Manus x Machina’ 2016 Costume Institute Gala yesterday as she flew to Los Angeles just a few days ago but surprise, she did attend the gala! She was wearing a gorgeous rose gold Ralph Lauren dress and looked amazing!

“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.

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.
