It’s of­fi­cially blockbuster sea­son – Ocean’s 8, Juras­sic World: Fallen King­dom and In­cred­i­bles 2 are all in UAE cine­mas this month

There’s no deny­ing Amer­i­can ac­tress Mindy Kal­ing is ev­ery­where in 2018 – from star­ring along­side Oprah Win­frey in sci-fi ad­ven­ture A Wrin­kle In Time to her new tele­vi­sion series Cham­pi­ons. Not bad for a girl from Mas­sachusetts whose ca­reer be­gan with a uni in­tern­ship at TV show Late Night With Co­nan O’Brien. In Ocean’s 8, Mindy joins a badass line-up for the allfe­male spin-off of the Ocean’s heist series.

What did you most en­joy about work­ing with such a di­verse group of women?

“Be­tween Late Night, A Wrin­kle In Time and Ocean’s 8, I think I’ve only acted with women, and all of the women I’ve acted with are over the age of 30 or 35. That’s re­ally cool and re­ally rare, to be in fea­ture films where not ev­ery­one is a 22-year-old model. I love it!”

There’s a lot of ex­pec­ta­tions about a movie like Ocean’s

8. What are you most ex­cited about au­di­ences get­ting to see?

“It’s so good! I’m so proud of it. If you know the names of the peo­ple in the cast and you know a lit­tle bit about the premise, it’s a movie you’ll want to see. It’s fan­tas­tic!”

With such an a-list cast, how did you deal with the pa­parazzi?

“There were so many pa­parazzi there for Ri­hanna! I was talk­ing to Anne Hath­away and Ri­hanna was be­hind us and there was a sea of pa­parazzi tak­ing pho­tos. I was kind of feel­ing fa­mous and then Ri­hanna took a left to her trailer – which was not in the same di­rec­tion that Anne and I were go­ing – and the pa­parazzi left so quickly, it was like a desert.”
