Rose Byrne and fellow Aussie actor Brendan Cowell have called it quits after nearly seven years together. The two split last month right before the Golden Globes. On the red carpet Rose posed with her co-star Tate Donovan and at the time, I wondered why her boyfriend wasn’t with her. Brendan is currently based in LA, while Rose is based in New York, where she films her TV series Damages. The pair met through friends band began dating in 2003, but spent most of the time living on opposite sides of the globe, which put a strain on their relationship.
