Rose Byrne poses for some seriously sexy photos in the June issue of Playboy magazine, just months after giving birth.
The 36-year-old star flashes her black bra while wearing a sultry red dress and matching lipstick. In another image, the 36-year-old actress has her hair slicked back and is laughing while donning a glittery black mini-dress.
The Australian actress admits that she's noticed similarities to herself and her parents since becoming a new mom. "It's funny how it manifests itself. My parents are very no-nonsense Australians: They don't like fanfare or fussiness. They're incredibly self-sufficient and curious," she explains. "I hope I'm like them in those ways. Australians are real wanderers; we're well traveled because we're so isolated. That's something I'm proud of in being an Australian."
As for her baby's daddy, Byrne -- who has worked with Cannavale on Spy, Adult Beginners and Annie -- says doesn't have an issue with working with her longtime boyfriend. "I imagine it would be more of a challenge if one of us were directing the other," she ponders. "As with any creative endeavor, you want the best for them. So if it's a failure, or if it's not going well, it can be heartbreaking. When we're working on something together, the stakes can feel pretty high."

In addition to Neighbors and the upcoming Neighbors 2, Byrne has starred in several other comedies -- including Bridesmaids and Get Him to the Greek -- and takes issue with how women in comedy are talked about in the media.
"With Bridesmaids, all the press focused on was, 'Wow, they're all women, and they're funny!' You would never say that about a comedy with all guys. No one would say, 'They're men, and they're funny!'" she exclaims. "We were really treated like aliens in the press. I was so naive, I didn't even think about it during the press tour. I didn't realize that was all anyone would want to talk about -- that we were women. ...It's something I wish we didn't have to talk about."
Prior to Byrne's Playboy interview, Cannavale shared his experiences as a dad of newborn son on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Check it out:
