Australian actress Rose Byrne fears her car is costing her jobs in Hollywood.

The TROY star drives a "rent-a-wreck" motor with no air conditioning to auditions, which she believes makes her look a mess when she arrives at prospective jobs.

She explains, "When I get out of the car I'm drenched in sweat, my make-up's off, my hair's a mess, I've been cursing like a mad woman because I'm so hot and bothered."

So, Byrne insists she's going to treat herself to a brand new car when she returns home to West Hollywood after promoting her new film Wicker Park.
