Rose Byrne Finds Comedy More Challenging Than Drama

Rose Byrne rocks a red Marchesa dress on the cover of Flare‘s August 2012 issue.

Here’s what the 32-year-old Bridesmaids and Damages actress had to share:

On comedy vs. drama: “It’s definitely more challenging for me to do comedy. I’m not as used to doing comedy, the stakes are higher. But it’s so addictive, to make people laugh.”

On ruling the red carpet: “I think for the red carpet in general it’s important to keep it youthful. A lot of people can look very dressed up and old and severe. That’s sort of my worst fear, is erring on that side.”

On her off-duty style: “I go through phases, but I mostly dress in high street clothing, like Urban Outfitters. Every day, really. My [best recent purchase was my] Zara boots … they get so many compliments. They’re great walking shoes, perfect for the city.”

On working with the late Heath Ledger: “I’m so proud of that film [1999’s Two Hands]. It’s an Australian classic. Heath is so beautiful in it … they couldn’t have made it without him. We were just kids making that movie.”
