Rose Byrne terrified filming I Give It A Year

Jan 25 2013, 4:12am CST | by

Rose Byrne was petrified by the doves on the 'I Give It A Year' set.

The 'Bridesmaids' actress turned into a nervous wreck while shooting the scene in Dan Mazer's new comedy where Simon Baker - who plays smooth American businessman Guy - tries to seduce her married alter ego Nat with the help of a violin player and two unruly white doves.

Speaking at the London premiere of 'Give It A Year' in Leicester Square, Simon exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''She was freaked out by the doves, I mean genuinely freaked out - under the table every take.

''It was impossible to shoot because she was just panicking, sitting there shaking the whole time. She didn't conquer her fear, they just cut it into the movie!''

Apart from the drama caused by Rose's fear of birds flapping around her head, Simon loved teaming up with his fellow Australian actress and found it hilarious to try and create an intimate romantic chemistry between them because they have been friends for so long.

He said: ''We've known each other for a long time so it was kind of funny actually so when we go to the set it was like - OK Rosie, were going to do the scene now where were looking at each other lovingly. It was a bit wacky but it was fun, she's a pro.''

The charming actor is currently filming the sixth series of hit TV show 'The Mentalist' and although he loves playing psychic crime-solver Patrick Jane, he admitted his newfound love of the big screen is looking increasingly ''attractive'' as a career prospect.

Simon quipped: ''After five years of the show... I worked all day yesterday, got on a plane last night and came straight here so the luxury of working on a film is very attractive to me right at this moment because I'm going to have to go straight back. But I love both, I'm happy to be working.''

Rose Byrne, Stephen Merchant, Rafe Spall and director Dan Mazer joined Simon on the red carpet last night (24.01.13).

ADULT BEGINNERS Review | TIFF 2014

Sep 12 2014 12:27pm CDT | Source: Collider

Though the duo have nothing to do with the film beyond an executive producer credit, Adult Beginners definitely feels as though it falls within the brand of Mark and Jay Duplass.  It’s a humble little comedy about awkward adults struggling with that whole, “living in the world” thing that leaps from comedy to drama so frequently and smoothly that they start to feel like the same thing.  Ambitions aren’t particularly high.  It’s ...
