EVE HEW­SON

GQ (Australia) - - NEWS -

You might have spot­ted the ta­lented Ir­ish ac­tress in Steven Spiel­berg’s lat­est flm, Bridge of Spies, where she ex­cels as Tom Hanks’ daugh­ter. Not that hav­ing a fa­mous par­ent is a stretch for the 24-year-old – her ac­tual fa­ther be­ing Paul Hew­son, who also goes by the name Bono. What’s that, nepo­tism in Hol­ly­wood? We were shocked too. But hold fre be­fore dis­miss­ing Hew­son’s act­ing cred­its as purely an­other rich kid pass­ing time be­fore the trust fund kicks in. Hit­ting screens late last month, Bridge of Spies has been well­re­ceived by crit­ics. With a script cour­tesy of the Coen broth­ers, it tells the true story of an Amer­i­can U-2 pi­lot (se­ri­ously) who’s shot down over Rus­sia, and the en­su­ing ne­go­ti­a­tion to se­cure his re­lease. Hew­son is also co-star­ring along­side Clive Owen in the sec­ond sea­son of Steven Soder­bergh’s TV se­ries The Knick. And if the frst sea­son is any­thing to go by, she’ll again be a stand­out per­former. “It freaks me out,” she’s said, when faced with her own im­pend­ing su­per-fame. “I’m go­ing to have to start be­hav­ing in pub­lic.” The Knick sea­son two is air­ing on Show­case now

BONO CO-OWNS A 2.3 PER CENT STAKE IN FACE­BOOK THAT’S NOW WORTH $2bn – MORE THAN HIS U2 EARN­INGS TO DATE.
