Rose Byrne - Rose Byrne Prefers Comedy To Critical Acclaim

Rose Byrne would rather appear in a comedy than win an Oscar.

The 31-year-old actress admits her career has changed dramatically since appearing in 'Get Him to the Greek' and 'Bridesmaids' and she loves the material she is now being offered.

She said: "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."

Rose's career floundered after she appeared in 'Troy' with Brad Pitt, and she admits her subsequent struggle to find work damaged her confidence.

She added in an interview with The Times newspaper: "'Troy' was huge and yet I didn't work for a long time after it. That definitely affected my confidence."

Rose recently spoke of how much fun she had working on 'Bridesmaids' with Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph.

She said: "I think you can tell on the screen that we were having a lot of fun. Everyone has a glint in their eye."
