Event Cinemas on George Street in Sydney was decked out in pink for the Australian — and world — premiere of the new comedy I Give It a Year. Leading lady Rose Byrne, in a Jill Stuart dress, was on hand to walk the bridal-themed carpet, where she chatted with media and posed for photos with fans. In the film, which is released on Feb. 28, Rose and Rafe Spall play a couple trying to get through their first year of marriage, but an ex-girlfriend (Anna Faris) and handsome new client (Simon Baker), on top of the usual pressures of a new marriage, make reaching the one-year mark a seemingly impossible mission. We were on the red carpet to get the scoop from Rose on working with Simon and how true the movie is to that all-important first year.

Do you think this film could possibly deter people from marriage if they’re already unsure about it?
[Laughs] Yes and no. It’s very much a cinematic world that he’s [writer/director Dan Mazer] created so it’s to be taken with a grain of salt, but it does examine the first year of marriage, which I’ve actually always heard is really hard. I’m not married, but friends of mine say that first year is really hard, and if you can get through that you’re OK. That’s what I’ve heard.

Did you discuss it with your married friends and did they say, ‘Yes, that’s true’ about things?
I did! I definitely did. And Dan Mazer, our director, he was very open about that with his own marriage and the first year, and why it’s such a change and adjusting to that. And I’ve always loved the title because it very much sets up the world of the film very instantly, kind of like Bridesmaids, where you know right away what world you’re in.

What was it like to work opposite Simon Baker?
The dishy Simon Baker! Well I’ve known Simon socially for years and it was lovely. He’s so professional and fun, and our scenes were good too, we got to play around. And the dove scene, too, where they’re flying — oh my God. I’m scared of birds so that was rough [laughs].
