If Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds ever gets remade, Rose Byrne will NOT be the next Tippi Hedren!

While on the set of I Give It a Year, Rose's character is wooed by fellow Aussie Simon Baker with a live dove.

Unfortunately, that's when she found out she had ornithophobia, a fear of birds!

Poor gurl!!!

Rose states:

I was petrified. I was slightly unprepared, but I have a fear of birds, I discovered, and the scene, unfortunately, was hijacked by this fear. It was intense. It was like a weird acting exercise, where I had to focus on my objective while being completely physically overtaken. It was really weird.

We know Rose Byrne persevered through her fear with flying colors!!!

Ok…so maybe not FLYING colors…LOLz!

Matt Damon Was Afraid Of Snakes

"Was" being the keyword.

In his new movie, We Bought A Zoo, while starring alongside Scarlett Johansson, Matt Damon was in very close contact with all sorts of animals.

Even with all the wild lions and tigers hanging around the set, there was only one thing that truly scared Damon… the snakes!

An ET interviewer said to Damon:

"Scarlett revealed to us that you have kind of a fear of snakes."

And Damon responded:

"I did. I got over it."

He said that it was Scarlett's constant teasing that helped him get over his fear. And the fact that the young child actors were more than willing to be covered in the snakes.

Way to go Matt! There's nothing to fear from silly, slithery snakes!

Kaley Cuoco Overcomes Her Fear Of Horses

Filed under: TV NewsPhotos!Horses

This is the way to do it!

Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco has a fear of horses ever since she had a riding accident in which she almost lost her leg.

Thankfully, the actress was willing to get right back on the saddle and posed with this gorgeous horse in Coworth Park in Ascot, England (the former home of the Sultan of Brunei, now an English manor hotel) for the August issue of CBS Watch! Magazine.

In the issue, she speaks about her love for animals:

"If anything, it made me respect the psyche of all animals even more-especially big, powerful creatures like horses. It really takes a horse person to understand the relationship between rider and horse.

It was a dream come true! But I felt bad for the gorgeous horse we shot with, because it was cold and I don't think he was used to all the cameras in his face, so I kept petting and kissing him. I love animals, especially horses - they're beautiful creatures that deserve immense respect. They're my release from the crazy life that is Hollywood."

Well, you look absolutely beautiful, Kaley. And big props to you for overcoming one of your biggest fears.
