We’ve noticed something special about Rose Byrne. Well, actually Hollywood noticed it first and we’re just observing it now: The Aussie beauty is really good at playing poised, brainy ladies. And though the actress told VH1 News that “It’d be easier to learn Chinese” than to do the kind of tech stuff her Google exec character does in The Internship (out this week), we really believe her in the role. Look back at some of her other smart characters in the gallery below, but then check out a clip of something completely different after the jump.
Yes, that is Ms. Byrne playing Irene, Snoop Dogg/Lion’s Jewish girlfriend who steps out on him with Dylan McDermott, while all three of them squat in an awful abandoned building in order to write Very Important things, in 2005′s The Tenants. Based on a 1971 novel by Bernard Malamud, it probably could have been something interesting. But judging by this trailer, we think Rose would prefer Google lost this gem in the last pages of her search results.
