Rose is on the cover of the June issue of Shape Magazine for the promotion of the Apple TV+ series, Physical, in which she plays the protagonist Sheila Rubin and that will debut on the streaming platform on June 18 this year. Check out the photos and then the interview below:
As the months of quarantine crawled by, Rose Byrne learned a fun new skill: crafting cocktails. “I got into being an artisanal cocktail waitress,” she says, laughing. “But I’m really slow at it. For me, it’s time consuming and labor intensive. My husband [actor Bobby Cannavale] will be like, ‘I’ve been waiting for 25 minutes.'” For the record, she and Bobby aren’t actually married, but they call each other husband and wife. (Because after nine years together and two kids, why not?) They are currently living on the West Coast (Rose has been working there) with their young sons, Rafa and Rocco. At this point, the glamour of the Hollywood red carpet seems like something from another planet. “All my beauty routines have gone out the window,” says Rose, 41. “I spend my days covered in markers, Play-Doh, and flour.”
But not today. As we chat, the Australian actor has just finished wrapping Physical, her new series for Apple TV+ (to be released on June 18) about an unhappy 1980s housewife who discovers aerobics, uses it as a path to power, and becomes a wellness guru. And Rose, known to audiences for her roles in Damages, Bridesmaids, and Neighbors, is definitely feeling the endorphin rush.
