Hollywood actress Rose Byrne would rather make people laugh in comedy movies than win an Oscar for her work.
The 31-year-old actress says that her career has changed dramatically since appearing in ‘Get Him to the Greek’ and ‘Bridesmaids’ and she loves the kind of work she is now being offered,reported Contactmusic.
Doing ‘Greek’ and ‘Bridesmaids’ has been a massive turning point for me. I’m Australian. I love humour. I come from a family that laughs a lot and my favourite films are comedies. Some people want the Oscar and others want the big role. But I’ve always wanted to do comedy, she said.
Byrne’s career floundered after she appeared in ‘Troy’ with Brad Pitt,and she said that her subsequent struggle to find work damaged her confidence.
‘Troy’ was huge and yet I didn’t work for a long time after it. That definitely affected my confidence, she said.
The actress recently spoke of how much fun she had working on ‘Bridesmaids’ with Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph.
I think you can tell on the screen that we were having a lot of fun. Everyone has a glint in their eye, she added.
