Rose Byrne: Make a style statement

Rose Byrne thinks that fashion should be fun and doesn't care if people don't like her clothes.

The Australian actress has become one of the hottest comedic names in Hollywood thanks to roles in The Internship and Bridesmaids, and often looks effortlessly chic when attending red carpet events.

Despite protesting that a worst dressed crown wouldn't faze her, 34-year-old Rose has actually become a style favourite of Kelly Osbourne's, who hosts E!'s Fashion Police.

"Really? Wow. They are a tough crowd," Rose smiled to British newspaper Metro. "I will definitely take that. It’s hard not to look too cheesy but it’s fashion, so it should be fun. To me, getting on the worst-dressed list is just as good as getting on the best-dressed list. You are never going to please everybody, so it’s more important to please yourself."

Her latest role is Kelly Radner in fun flick Bad Neighbours. She stars opposite Seth Rogen and Zac Efron in the movie, which tells the story of a young family struggling to live next door to a frat house.

Zac shows off his toned torso in numerous scenes throughout the film, something that Rose has no complaints about.

"Well, everybody had their shirts off – me, Seth – no one was safe," Rose laughed. "What I liked most about it, though, was that Zac was willing to make fun of his own media persona and the vanity of his character really served a purpose in the film.

"Is it bordering on exploitation? I don’t think so. If you work that hard at looking that good, you don’t want to be having to wear a shirt."
