The style savvy star of hit comedy Bridesmaids, Rose Byrne is an InStyle favourite both on screen and on the red carpet. To celebrate the Blu-Ray and DVD release of Bridesmaids, we caught up with the Australian actress to find out what makes her giggle, who are her favourite designers and more…
SEE ROSE IN BRIDEMAIDS!
Bridesmaids has been hailed as one of the best female comedies of all time. Did you know it would be so successful on reading the script?
I loved the script as soon as I read it. Obviously I had hopes it would be successful - but I never imagined it would be to this extent.
How was it working on set - was the comedy quite spontaneous or more scripted?
The set was great - both scripted and spontaneous humor. We would always shoot a script version then [director] Paul Feig would yell out: "Dealer's choice!"
Your character, Helen, is quite uptight. Did you find it hard to keep a straight face?
I did! Melissa McCarthy [Megan in Bridesmaids] figured out I was hopeless at keeping a straight face and would start to make me laugh constantly. I was continually apologising to Paul and [producer] Judd Apatow.
Did you get on particularly well with any of your co-stars?
All of them. They are gorgeous smart wonderful women.
You wore some great outfits in the film, do you have a favourite?
The outer space silver plane outfit is particularly special!
Are there any similarities between Helen’s style and your own?
How would you describe your style day-to-day?
Extremely boyish or extremely feminine.
Do you have any go-to designers?
APC, Madewell, Sandro, Maje, Vanessa Bruno....
Do you have a key style tip?
Dress to flatter yourself I would always say. And invest is great shoes.
And what’s in the pipeline for you?
