Rose Byrne answers Playboy magazine’s monthly twenty-questions feature for the June 2016 issue, on newsstands Friday (May 20).
Here’s what the Neighbors 2 actress had to share:
On her current Broadway recommendation: “Uh, Hamilton? I mean, come on. The soundtrack is on in our house all the time. I went with Glenn Close. I’m just going to go ahead and drop her name. She’s the only reason I got a ticket. You can score hard-to-get tickets to great shows when you know Glenn Close.”
On women in comedy: “With Bridesmaids, all the press focused on was ‘Wow, they’re all women, and they’re funny!’ You would never say that about a comedy with all guys. No one would say, ‘They’re men, and they’re funny!’ We were really treated like aliens in the press. I was so naive I didn’t even think about it during the press tour. I didn’t realize that was all anyone would want to talk about—that we were women. Maybe Kristen, Melissa and Maya were prepared for those questions because they’re more seasoned comedic performers, but I wasn’t. It’s something I wish we didn’t have to talk about.”
On the Presidential election: “I’m fascinated, just riveted. Coming from Australia, the political world here is so much larger than life. This whole Donald Trump thing is such an unusual phenomenon. Australian politics are like a sedative compared to this spectacle.”
