Rose Byrne’s partner Bobby Cannavale reveals what he STILL doesn’t understand about Australian culture
American actor Bobby Cannavale has been in a relationship with Australian actress Rose Byrne since 2012.
And despite spending a lot of time with Down Under over the past decade, the 50-year-old Ant-Man star says there’s still one aspect of Australian life that he doesn’t fully understand yet.
Bobby, who lives in New York, told me News.com.au he’s been embraced by going barefoot in public and driving on the left side of the road, but he still can’t quite get around the country’s ‘real drinking culture’.

“I find myself having a drink earlier in the day in Australia than anywhere else in the world,” he said.
“You walk past a pub at three and say,” Really? Is the workday over at three in this country? ”
“The bars are packed at three and I don’t know how that is possible,” added the two-time Emmy winner.
Bobby said his recent work trip to Byron Bay, New South Wales was the epitome of the laid-back stereotypical beach culture that Australia is known for.

He and Rose, 41, traveled to Byron last year so Bobby could film the Hulu limited series Nine Perfect Strangers.
The show was produced by Nicole Kidman and stars Melissa McCarthy, Luke Evans and Samara Weaving.
Production began on August 10 and ran for 19 weeks.
Rose then returned to Los Angeles early this year to begin recording the Apple TV + drama Physical.
The long-term couple is not married, but both often refer to each other as ‘husband’ and ‘wife’.
Last year, Bobby explained during an interview on The Late Late Show with James Corden, “ Honestly, I haven’t found a better word for it.
“Boyfriend” feels too young, “partner” feels too clinical … You know, my “female partner”? That feels strange. So it’s just easier. People don’t ask questions when you say, “It’s my wife.” ‘
Bobby and Rose share two sons, Rafa, two, and Rocco, four.
