“My mum is an out-lesbian and I was raised by her and her partner, and also between my dad and my stepdad. I’m from pretty much the last generation before homosexuality was a really common and accepted thing. There was no Ellen, no Sex And The City kind of going on when I was in high school and junior high so I copped a lot of flak for it.”

Rose Byrne tells The Advocate she once played a lesbian, very early in her career.

As a teenager, I did a couple episodes of Fallen Angels, an Australian television show, playing a young girl who happened to be gay.

Since then, I’ve not been approached to play a gay part.
