Rose Byrne: Glenn Close is a 'joker'

July 21st, 2014

Rose Byrne says Glenn Close is a ''joker'' on set.

The 'Damages' actress was worried at how her co-star would behave on set, and has revealed while she was expecting to ''feel intimidated'', she actually became a victim of one of the veteran's pranks during filming for the legal thriller which ran for five years.

She told The Observer Magazine: ''I was worried I was going to meet Glenn Close and feel intimidated.

''Thankfully on the first day of shooting 'Damages' she proved to be ever the joker, blowing up a big picture of Brad Pitt in my dressing room for me. We worked together on 'Troy', and had shared a naked seen.''

However, the 'Insidious' star wouldn't have been able to get her own back after the creative prank, having admitted that she is ''not a natural'' when it comes to comedy, despite starring in 'Bridesmaids'.

She added: ''I'm not a natural comedian but I try. 'Bridesmaids' was like a breath of fresh air for me as I'd longed to do comedy for a while.

''I think we all harbour secret ambitions and that was mine - I'd always been limited to being seen as a serious actor. Thankfully, it worked out.''
