Rose Byrne Talks THE INTERNSHIP, Google, Auditioning, THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES, and TOWNIES; Confirms Abundance of Male Nudity

     June 6, 2013


With director Shawn Levy’s The Internship opening this weekend, 20th Century Fox recently held a press junket at Google where we were able to speak with the cast.  If you’re not familiar with The Internship, the film re-teams Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn as two out-of-work salesmen who attempt to reinvent themselves by competing against young up-and-comers for an internship at Google.  The film also stars Rose Byrne, Max Minghella, Dylan O’Brien, Josh Gad, B.J. Novak, and John Goodman.  For more on the film, watch these clips.

During our interview with Rose Byrne, she talked about finding the right tone, whether she was upset that she didn’t get to play Quidditch in the movie, how she prepared to play a really smart Google employee, what she learned about the company that really surprised her, whether she did any takes with raunchier dialogue, auditioning, and more.  In addition, she also talked about Derek Cianfrance‘s The Place Beyond the Pines and Nicholas Stoller‘s Townies.  She confirmed what Dave Franco recently told us about the abundance of male nudity in the latter film.  Hit the jump to watch.
