NY POST – Eve Hewson finds the humor in everything, from her dangerously single status to her prepubescent-boy dress sense. When she’s not poking fun at her personal life, the Irish actress is making light of her on-screen escapades, especially the stunts and smooches.
There are plenty of both in her first action flick, director Otto Bathurst’s gritty, reimagined “Robin Hood,” out Nov. 21. The ingénue plays Maid Marian, love interest of both The Hood (Taron Egerton) and his rival, Will Scarlet (Jamie Dornan). And she had a laugh doing it.
“It was great — I was the only girl on set, I got all the attention,” the 27-year-old tells Alexa with a twinkle in her sky-blue eyes.
Hollywood is also paying attention to Hewson, the daughter of U2 frontman Bono and activist-entrepreneur Ali Hewson. With her dramatic coloring, easygoing personality and quick wit, she’s part of a new breed of hilarious beauties who banter. And unlike her cagier counterparts, she’s happy to talk about canoodling with co-stars.
“I don’t find make-out scenes embarrassing at all,” says the Brooklyn-based leading lady. “Everybody knows how to kiss. We’ve all had a lot of practice. I find other things to be more challenging, like learning to ride a horse or learning an accent or things that you don’t normally do in your daily life.”
THE HAMILTON SPECTATOR – Irish actress Eve Hewson says she honed a discerning eye for film projects at an early age, by critiquing the songs and set lists of her famous dad Paul Hewson, a.k.a. Bono.
“One of the reasons I think I’m sort of good at picking projects and picking directors and finding the right roles is because I grew up a part of the conversation with my dad’s music and their shows,” Hewson says by phone from New York, casually dropping a reference to her dad’s super group — U2.
“Ever since we were kids he would always ask me and my sister: ‘What do you think? Did you like this song? Do you like that chorus? Did you like that set list?’ We’ve always been encouraged to develop our own opinions and so I’ve been able to, hopefully, bring that into my own career.”
Hewson is on her way to becoming star in her own right.
In addition to her TV breakout in the defunct period saga “The Knick,” she’s notched a variety of film credits, including the Steven Spielberg drama “Bridge of Spies” and the Nicole Holofcener romantic comedy “Enough Said.”
This Friday she stars in the coming-of-age tale “Paper Year,” the feature directorial debut of Canadian writer/director Rebecca Addelman.
Hewson plays 22-year-old Franny, an aspiring TV writer and newlywed, while her new husband is aspiring actor Dan, played by Vancouver’s Avan Jogia. Andie MacDowell co-stars as Franny’s wary mother and Hamish Linklater is a fellow scribe who takes Franny under his wing when she lands her first writing gig.
The Ottawa-born Addelman, who honed her comedic skills in Toronto before moving to Los Angeles, says the story was inspired by her own experience marrying young, although the specific ways the characters act out has been dramatized.
