Eve Hewson spent lockdown, like most of us, not doing a whole lot other than bingeing TV.
The Irish actress revealed that she moved back in with her parents when lockdown hit and spent the last two years on her couch watching Netflix. (As well as making a show for Netflix!)
And her telly watching may have landed her a role in a new Brad Pitt movie!
Appearing on the Jimmy Fallon Show over in the States, Eve explained that her new obsession is Formula 1 after watching the addictive Netflix series, Drive to Survive.

“Brad Pitt is making a Formula 1 movie. And I have the same manager as Brad Pitt,” she explained.
“I was at dinner with my manager, and I was obviously talking about it. And she was like, ‘Oh he’s making a movie about it.’ And I was like, ‘Get Brad Pitt on the phone right now.’.”
We love the hustle, Eve.
She explained that after her manager called up Brad Pitt himself, Eve told him: “I will do anything to in this movie. I will have one line, I will be in the pit crew, I will do whatever you want. But I’ve got to be in this film!”
However, the Dublin native was left gobsmacked when she learned that Brad was actually a fan of hers!
In fact, he told her: “I’m such a fan. I watched Behind her Eyes twice. You’re in it kid.”
So, obviously that means that we’ll see Eve star alongside Brad Pitt in the coming months, right?
She joked that she has “no clue” as to how she will feature in the film, but that she will definitely make it happen.
“I feel like we had a verbal agreement over the phone, and if you say it on national television, it’s legally binding,” she affirmed.
We agree, Eve.
Thankfully we won’t have to wait too long to see Eve back on our screens as she is starring alongside Sharon Horgan and Sarah Greene in the new series, Bad Sisters. You can find out all about that here.
