Rose Byrne Recalls 'Surreal' Scene With Oprah Winfrey

Added: 19.04.2017 16:30 | 26 views | 0 comments

Rose Byrne found telling Oprah Winfrey to "shut the f**k up" in 'The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks' to be "surreal".
The 37-year-old actress stars alongside the American icon in the new HBO TV movie, and Rose admitted that one particular scene with Oprah sticks out in her mind.
She shared: "It was intense! It was a long day, but we wanted to do a good job and we were g-ed up to do it.
"It was one of those strange surreal moments in your life but that's acting you know? I think I said that to Glenn Close a few times as well so I'm clearly cornering a market, telling legendary woman to eff off."
Rose was, in fact, a little intimidated by her co-star before she got to know her on the set of the TV movie.
She told 'Entertainment Tonight': "Of course, someone of that profile, and [me] playing very intense roles, a journalist trying to really get in her space, you know so, and with somebody whose profile everybody wants a piece of you. But we leaned heavily on George Wolf our director, he really navigated us through everything."
Rose also revealed Oprah approached the job with some trepidation, especially as the movie centers on the life of Henrietta Lacks, who was diagnosed with cervical cancer in the 1950s and whose cancer cells changed the course of treatment.
Rose - who plays the part of Rebecca Skloot, a freelance science writer, in the movie - explained: "She's incredibly humble for someone of her ... being a living legend, really.
"She had a huge undertaking and she was nervous admittedly, as was I. It's a very important story and a big story we tried to tell in a short amount of time too, so it was ambitious."
