Rose Byrne Was Misquoted Again And People Just Want To Know Why Variety Keeps Doing This To Her
"What do you have against this queen?"
Last week, Rose Bryne did an interview with the Variety and iHeart podcast The Big Ticket. In the interview, she talked about everything from how her quaratine is going, to projects she has coming up, to, of course, the fantastic new miniseries she is starring in, Mrs. America.
And as soon as people saw that her words had been twisted, they quickly came to her defense:
Variety then deleted it and apologized, admitting it sounded a bit misleading:
Well, it seems like they might have done a similar thing again, this time with this tweet making it sound like she is praising Kellyanne Conway:
Which, again, was not exactly what she said (and tone is key here). In the same interview where she talked about Phyllis, Rose was asked about playing a Kellyanne-esque character in a new political comedy, and she gave a very sarcastic answer (when talking about what she was doing to prep for the film):
"Watching endless videos of Kellyanne Conway [laughs] trying to capture that sort of alternative-fact spirit that she has."
Tell me about Kellyanne Conway. And tell me about playing a Kellyanne Conway type.
"[Laughs] She’s truly incredible. You do have to take your hat off to how she can answer any question without not answering anything at all. It’s quite extraordinary. So we tried to capture that spirit a little bit. [Laughs]"
