Rose Byrne on Louis C.K.'s Comeback: 'If He's Going to Show Up, Just Let Everybody Know' 


While promoting her new movie, Instant Family, in an interview with The New York Times, Rose Byrne had some thoughts on Louis C.K.’s attempts at a comeback. Namely, don’t surprise people, a concept that’s historically been difficult for C.K:

I think if he’s going to show up, just let everybody know so then they can make a decision, like, “I don’t want to see this guy — I’m out.”

Byrne also talked about starring in the shelved C.K. project, I Love You, Daddy:

You go in with such great intentions, and Louis was very sweet with me, and I had a very respectful experience. But it’s obviously very complicated, and I stand with the women who came forward.

Part of the responsibility for C.K.’s comeback, according to Byrne, rests with powerful—albeit mysterious in the context of the interview—gatekeepers:

It’s also the gatekeepers around these things who give people the chance to have a comeback. They’re actually really powerful. I would like to see them being held accountable a little bit more.

Well, let’s trot out those gatekeepers. No time like the present.
