This month, Ocean’s 8 will be released –starring an all-female cast. Featuring none other than Anne Hathaway and Sandra Bullock, the female-led Ocean’s 8 revolves around Debbie Ocean (estranged sister of Danny Ocean, i.e. George Clooney from the Ocean trilogy) and her gang of girls who set up a heist to rob the Met at the time of the gala. The jaw-dropping cast also includes Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, and even a few Kardashians. However, the biggest mystery of the fi lm is whether or not Anne Hathaway’s character is actually part of that titular eight, or is she just a hapless victim? The fi rst full-length fi lm advert focused mainly on Sandra Bullock’s character, Debbie Ocean, reuniting with an old friend, played by Cate Blanchett, and then recruiting other women. Hathaway’s character, a Hollywood actress is not shown with the other women, and we’re led to believe she’s the target of the crime (or at least the wearer of the presumably loaned jewellery that is the real target), rather than a co-conspirator. We’ll have to wait and see. Whatever her involvement, we’re sure she’s going to do just great. The 35-year old American actress was confi rmed as one of the world’s highest paid actresses in 2015 and she’s also received a number of awards. It is even rumoured that her fi lms have earned $6.4 billion worldwide, and she appeared in the Forbes Celebrity 100 in 2009. Is there anything she can’t do? In 2001, she was propelled into the limelight following her lead role in the Disney comedy The Princess Diaries. She then transitioned into adult roles starring in Brokeback Mountain, The Devil Wears Prada, Bride Wars and Love & Other Drugs. In 2012, Hathaway starred as Selina Kyle in her highest-grossing fi lm The Dark Knight Rises, the fi nal instalment in The Dark Knight trilogy. That year, she also played Fantine, a prostitute dying of tuberculosis, in the musical romantic drama Les Misérables, for which she earned multiple accolades, including an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She’s since starred in various other fl icks and has also sung for soundtracks, won an Emmy for providing her voice in The Simpsons, appeared on stage and hosted events. Wow. Aside from her acting, she also supports several charities and causes. A board member of the Lollipop Theatre Network, an organization that brings fi lms to sick children in hospitals, she advocates gender equality as a UN Women goodwill ambassador. We can’t wait to watch Anne in Ocean’s 8 this month and we wonder what she’s got planned next!  BrGiItRaL iPnO’Ws EfRa vGoOuALrSite Image credit: JStone Image credit: Everette Collection
