Don’t forget to tune in for The Graham Norton Show tonight at 22:45 on BBC One, where Helena will be joined by co-stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, and Rihanna to discuss Ocean’s 8. The ladies will be setting a record for the most female guests Graham Norton has ever had on his show in twenty years.
Helena wears Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood.
Helena was interviewed for the LA Times about Ocean’s 8.
There’s no reason we were stretching credibility in being con artists,” Helena Bonham Carter says of “Ocean’s 8,” a new addition to the stylish “Ocean’s” franchise that sees eight women planning and executing a heist at the Met Gala.
The actress is sitting in a private room at London’s Soho House, stretched out on the couch as she reflects on her experience. “We can be as morally bankrupt as men,” she says and laughs. “That’s all we want to prove.”
Bonham Carter plays Rose Weil in the film opening Friday, a down-on-her-luck fashion designer whose financial troubles mean she’ll do anything — including join a crew of criminals planning to steal a Cartier necklace during fashion’s biggest night.
I’m so sorry for neglecting the site recently! I am in the process of adding lots and lots of pictures of Helena looking fabulous on the set of Ocean’s Eight with co-stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, and Rihanna. Also spotted on location was Mindy Kaling, who was previously confirmed as appearing in the film, as well as Sarah Paulson and Dakota Fanning who look to have joined the cast as well!
Many of you will have seen the recent candid photographs of Helena out and about in New York (sporting newly blonde hair with what looks like a pinkish tint), but if you haven’t…Helena is currently in New York! And the reason she’s in New York is because filming for Ocean’s Eight has begun. Hopefully we’ll get some more details about Helena’s role soon!
Exciting news! Helena has reportedly been cast in an all-female spin-off of Ocean’s Eleven. Sandra Bullock is will be taking on the lead role as the sister of Danny Ocean, while Helena’s Cinderella co-star, Cate Blanchett will play the second lead akin to Brad Pitt’s character, Rusty. George Clooney, who played the role of Danny Ocean in the original films, is set to be a producer on the new film, which has a working title of Ocean’s Ocho. Star of The Mindy Project, Mindy Kaling and The Hunger Games actress, Elizabeth Banks have also signed up, while Jennifer Lawrence is rumored to be interested in the project.
The Hunger Games director, Gary Ross will be teaming up with the original director of Ocean’s Eleven, Steven Soderbergh. Continuing the female lead, Olivia Milch is credited at a writer on the film’s IMDb page. According to The Independent, the film’s premise will see the all-female collective team up in order to steal a necklace from the Met Ball so they can frame a villainous gallery owner.
