Five Things You Didn't Know About Rose Byrne

Actress Rose Byrne made her screen debut back in 1994, but it wasn't until the Noughties that people started to sit up and take notice of the low-key beauty. Flicking through her filmography you'd be forgiven for forgetting she's been in some MAJOR blockbusters.

Nevertheless Rose is a Hollywood force to be reckoned with. While she may have slipped seamlessly under the radar in the past, her latest flick I Give It A Year (Byrne stars alongside the stunning Minnie Driver and Ricky Gervais' right-hand funny man Stephen Merchant) is tipped to be the next best British rom-com since Love Actually.

Since her stella and totally hilarious stint as Helen in the silver screen success Bridesmaids, Team MyDaily has been on a mission to learn more about the talented and not to mention drop-dead gorgeous Aussie.

So, here's what you don't know about Rose Byrne...

1. She was in Star Wars
Perhaps the odd movie buff or one of those dedicated people who attends conventions would already know this, but really, she was IN Star Wars? Yup, Star Wars: Episdoe II - Attack Of The Clones to be precise.

2. Her beauty is recognised throughout the land
Well yeah, we can all see she's totes pretty but in 2007 she made it onto Who magazine's Most Beautiful People list

3. She's a child star
Rose landed her first movie role in Dallas Dolls at 13-year-old. Does this mean she's due a child star breakdown a la Macaulay Culkin? We hope not.

4. She's a graduate
Many an actor will find fame and forget about their former dreams of becoming an academic, but not Rose. The actress attended the University of Sydney and didn't drop out.

5. She's a fan of the high street
Although she cites Christian Cota and Valentino among her favourite designers Rose has confessed she's usually wearing something from Topshop, Urban Outfitters or a great vintage shop find.
