Rose Byrne prefers comedy to critical acclaim

London: Hollywood actress Rose Byrne would rather make people laugh in comedy movies than win an Oscar for her work.

The 31-year-old actress says that her career has changed dramatically since appearing in `Get Him to the Greek` and `Bridesmaids` and she loves the kind of work she is now being offered, reported Contactmusic.

"Doing `Greek` and `Bridesmaids` has been a massive turning point for me. I`m Australian. I love humour. I come from a family that laughs a lot and my favourite films are comedies. Some people want the Oscar and others want the big role. But I`ve always wanted to do comedy," she said.

Byrne`s career floundered after she appeared in `Troy` with Brad Pitt, and she said that her subsequent struggle to find work damaged her confidence.

"`Troy` was huge and yet I didn`t work for a long time after it. That definitely affected my confidence," she said.

The actress recently spoke of how much fun she had working on `Bridesmaids` with Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph.

"I think you can tell on the screen that we were having a lot of fun. Everyone has a glint in their eye," she added.
