The Ocean’s 8 Cast Never Thought A Movie With So Many Women Would Get Made
At an Ocean’s 8 press conference Tuesday at the Temple of Dandur at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Sandra Bullock confessed that, when she first heard of Ocean’s 8, she didn’t think it would get financed.
“I thought it was a fun idea. I didn’t at the time think the movie would get made,” Bullock told reporters.
Seven of the eight cast members of the film appeared at the conference alongside director Gary Ross and screenwriter Olivia Milch. They discussed the novelty of an all-women heist movie, and what it feels like to have eight of Hollywood’s biggest names on the same bill. Blanchett, who plays the Brad Pitt to Bullock’s George Clooney in this iteration of the Ocean’s franchise, added that just a few years ago, this movie seemed like an “impossibility.”
“Isn’t it interesting — two or three years, this seemed like an impossibility. Like, how could we possibly get this made? And it’s so great that it’s being released now, and you go, ‘Well, of course.’ A lot has shifted,” Blanchett revealed.
Gary Ross, the film’s director, added, “There are more ‘of courses’ now than there were then.”
Rumors about an all-women Ocean’s movie emerged in late 2015, years after Steven Soderbergh stated that he would not be making an Ocean’s Fourteen. Given the historically male format of the movies — Frank Sinatra starred in the original, and Clooney dominated Soderbergh’s remakes — this seemed like a pipe dream. But by summer of 2016, the rumor earned credibility with the news that the movie had a fully stacked cast. (Elizabeth Banks was initially reported to be in the film, but she later dropped out.) The movie’s titular 8 are as follows: Mindy Kaling, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Awkwafina, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson, and Anne Hathaway.
“I’m really excited for the moment that this doesn’t feel special anymore,” Hathaway said of the film. In the movie, she plays a fame-crazed celebrity who’s wearing the necklace Sandra Bullock’s character plans to burgle.
The massive cast did manage to bond during the film, Bullock added, even though their schedules didn’t really allow for it. “I think we managed to connect on a level that we never ever would have been given a chance [to connect on] because we — women, you know, there’s five roles [in Hollywood] and we’re all looking for them, and they’re all lone little islands, and here we were, Hawaii, and all the other islands,” she said, talking her way through the metaphor. In case you’re wondering, the cast does have a group text.
“You guys all know about the Bechdel test,” Kaling said, referring to the Bechdel-Wallace test, which asks if a film contains two female characters who talk about something other than a man. “This passes it with flying colors. I mean, the fact that we’re orchestrating a crime as opposed to fighting over a man. There’s isn’t even a specter of a man.”
It’s rare — indeed, maybe unprecedented — that an action film would feature eight women collaborating on one massive heist. Much less eight women who are funny, glamorous, and not in the midst of romantic turmoil. It’s a mark of a greater cultural shift that sees value in telling interesting female-driven stories.
Hathaway added, “You can’t underestimate the power of visual representation. So, to an 8-year-old girl, we’re not trying to say, ‘Go have a life of crime,’ but we’re saying, ‘Go do what you want. Go do what you want [because] there’s space for you. There’s space for you to do it with your friends. And there’s room for all of you.’”
And to think — two or three years ago, this might not have been greenlit.
With the release of Oceans 8, which is centred around a Met Gala heist, just around the corner, this year’s event has greater significance: Hathaway wears a Valentino gown in the film’s most important scene, Lovell shares, before shushing herself. So, on this year’s Met Gala there was no surprise, Anne wore Valentino as well.
Vogue published today an inside look of Anne getting ready for the ball. Alongside hairstylist Adir Abergel, stylist Charla Pauley-Maxwell and makeup artist Kate Lee, they had an inside peek at her glamorous getting-ready session for the Met Gala.

Anne attended last night the Children’s Monologue at the Carnegie Hall in New York.
Oscar winner Danny Boyle assembled an all star A team of actors for “The Children’s Monologues,” a charity event of performances to benefit the UK charity Dramatic Need. The group funds programs in South Africa for impoverished children.
Boyle– director of “Slumdog Millionaire,” “Trainspotting,” and “127 Hours”– brought together Susan Sarandon, James McAvoy, Audra McDonald, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Jason Alexander, Andrew Garfield, Daveed Diggs, Common, Esperanza Spaulding, Cynthia Erivo, Daniel Kaluuya, Gugu Mbatha Raw, Sebastian Stan, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and on and and on.
They read monologues written by South African children and then polished up by dramaturgs like Lynn Nottage, Tom Stoppard, Neil LaBute and others. Also featured was the Via Vyndal Pantsula Dance Crew and the New York City Youth Ensemble. It was a 5 star night that beautifully captured the spirit of South Africa and let some of our newest stars show off their stage ability. No one had more than a few hours of rehearsal.
Check in our gallery some pictures of her arrivals.
