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!
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!
