Margot Robbie & Jurnee Smollet Bell (Birds Of Prey) on Taking Chances, Balance of Power, & Imposter Syndrome

I promised myself that I wouldn’t mention Neighbours or Full House but what was the first thing I said to Margot and Jurnee?!

Besides their early work, Margot and Jurnee also spoke about the making of Birds of Prey. Why it took so long to get to the big screen, why this was one of the most comfortable sets they’ve worked on and how imposter syndrome is real for Margot – even after two Oscar nominations!

Birds of Prey And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn is in cinemas now.

Francesca Hayward Talks “Cats”, Vogue and Ballet

2019 has been a big year for Francesca Hayward. Not only is she the principal ballerina at The Royal Ballet but she also graced the cover of the British Vogue September issue (which was edited by the Duchess of Sussex) and now she ends the year with her movie debut as the star of Cats. The movie was a very weird experience but Francesca delivered a standout performance.

Francesca told me how she feels about this year, how her grandmother has handled all of the good news, and what she has in store for 2020.

Cats is in cinemas now.
