Rose Byrne Says It Will Be Hard to Top 'Bridesmaids' If Sequel Is Ever Made
Universal Pictures

While she would be happy to return for a second movie, the 'Insidious' actress admits it would be difficult to outdo the original movie because the 2011 romcom was 'so great.'

AceShowbiz - Rose Byrne is open to making a "Bridesmaids" sequel. The 43-year-old actress played Helen Harris III in Paul Feig's hit comedy and is prepared to make another film if all her co-stars - including Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy - are happy to return.

"If all the girls were in, I absolutely would," Rose told People magazine.

The film proved to be a hit both critically and commercially and Byrne acknowledges that a potential sequel should try and go down a different route in terms of plot. The "Platonic" actress said, "It's a hard act to follow because the first film was so great. It was so magical and so beloved."

"Maybe we could do a different movie together. A reimagining of something. But I miss them all. I saw Kristen Wiig recently. It was so lovely to see her. I hadn't seen her for so long, and they've all got such a special place in my heart."

Byrne explained that she is often approached by female fans who reference the 2011 film. She said, "It depends on the demographic, honestly. But if there's a young girl or a woman between the ages of about 25 and 45, 50, I know it's going to be a 'Bridesmaids' reference."

Rose echoes the thoughts of co-star McCarthy who revealed last month that she would jump at the opportunity to make a sequel to the flick. Melissa - who played Megan Price in the film - told People, "I would do a Bridesmaids sequel this afternoon, right now."

"That group of women was the most magical thing ever. Almost all of us were really good friends already. I think it was such a magical time. [Even if we are] all in our nineties and Kristen and Annie are like, 'Should we team back up?' I'd be like, 'Yes. Yeah, we should.' "
