Rose Byrne Covers Flare's August 2012 Issue

Rose Byrne graces the cover of Flare's August 2012 issue wearing a radiant, red Marchesa gown paired with a Aurélie Bidermann cuff. The Marchesa gown is the same one that Jennifer Lawrence wore to the Berlin premiere of the Hunger Games. The Bridesmaids star talks about her red carpet fashion rule book, her casual style and working with the late Heath Ledger.

Rose on her red carpet style rules: "I think for the red carpet in general it’s important to keep it youthful. A lot of people can look very dressed up and old and severe. That’s sort of my worst fear, is erring on that side.”

Rose on her casual fashion style: "I go through phases, but I mostly dress in high street clothing, like Urban Outfitters. Every day, really. My [best recent purchase was my] Zara boots … they get so many compliments. They’re great walking shoes, perfect for the city.”

Rose on working with Heath Ledger: “I’m so proud of that film [1999’s Two Hands]. It’s an Australian classic. Heath is so beautiful in it … they couldn’t have made it without him. We were just kids making that movie.”

Rose on her role in Damages: “It totally changed my life. I wouldn’t have got all those [subsequent] films if I hadn’t been on that show.”

Mila on dating rumors: “Ninety-nine percent of it is bulls–t. That is the biggest form of bullying ever, the paparazzi. Printing lies, making accusations, it’s just bullying.”

Mila on feeling pressure to have a baby: “This isn’t the right time for me to have one, but I do want a family. I’d rather be in love and have a baby than have a movie.”

Mila on online dating: “One of my really good friends met her fiancé on an OkCupid-style website. OkCupid’s really popular—all my girlfriends have joined. I love those sites. I go on and I pick the guys for my friends. I think it’s great. It’s online shopping! We all get together with our laptops and have a glass of wine. Then we message the guy.”

Is Mischa Barton Headed For a Comeback?

Mischa Barton? Where has she been? If you asked us a year ago if we thought Mischa could pull off a comeback, the answer would seem unlikely. However, these days the 26-year-old is possibly poised for a career revival. Trust us, we are not certain Barton is ready just yet. However, with her legal and health troubles safely behind her, she seems to be on the road to redemption. Here are a few hints that might suggest the former teen star is building momentum for a comeback.

Firstly, her appearance is rapidly improved. Barton went through a drastic weight gain and loss period from 2008 - 2009. In June of 2009, Mischa attended the event opening of Harrods Summer Sale in London looking puffy, pale and unhealthy. The actress later responded to criticism for her appearance, stating she had a wisdom tooth pulled and suffered severe swelling.

Her yo-yo weight continued to fluctuate going from a size 12 to a size 6. There was much speculation that Mischa had been burning the candle at both ends and was drained emotionally and physically between her break-up with Kooks singer, Luke Pritchard, and too much partying in London. The OC alum recently turned to celebrity stylist, June Ambrose for an image makeover, and it appears to be working.

She launched a vintage-inspired clothing line in Dubai just last week. Not only does the line include clothing and accessories, but also cosmetics bearing her name. It seems that Dubai was the place to launch the collection, due to the popularity of her 14-piece handbag line she created for ASOS in 2008. According to WWD, the retro-inspired line will be available in the U.K. next month and expanding to other markets including the United States within the year. A business adventure of this kind takes more than just a figure head. Barton must have her head in the game to make these kinds of decisions.

She is once again a cover girl. Mischa is on the cover of Korean Nylon and on the debut cover of the new magazine TWELV. Appearing on two magazine covers is quite the way to get major PR for yourself. 

Finally, Mischa has a handful of movies coming out. Most likely not blockbuster hits, but she appears along side some big names in Hollywood including: Michael Clarke Duncan, Martin Sheen and Rebecca De Mornay. If these films prove to have any kind of box office success, it could thrust her back into stardom.

So take a look at these clues and tell us: Are these all signs that Mischa has what it takes to move beyond her troubled past? One thing we can say for sure is that we are rooting for her.
