Rose Bryne

By August 18, 2009Nat-news

Another celebrity mention, this time from the Damages/Sunshine actress (Okay fine, she was also Dorme in AOTC), but it’s not an ass kicking exercise but a comment about Natalie’s influence in the industry.

Byrne appreciates movies have “changed so much, especially with independent film”.

“Actors like Hugh and I work a lot but by no means are we Natalie Portman or someone like that, who you need these days to get the money for a film like this,” she says.

I’ve always maintained that Natalie has a really strong pull in the industry, at least since her post college resurrection, and we’ve had a few updates like this now that definitely seem to back that up.

I don’t think any fan would suggest that she hasn’t been in a lot of films that didn’t reach their potential in recent years, but I think her work ethic and some good performances in iffy films, keep her stock up.

Maybe less so in the eyes of audiences though.

    Congrats on your new Movie Hersh something. The crush from your lead star seems nice. Give him a chance.

    I have this ridiculous girl-crush on Rose Byrne. Love her. It’s pity she and Nat couldn’t have worked together in a better film than AOTC.

    Actually, I think I’d have preferred her to Mila Kunis for Black Swan.
