  • Sandra Bullock says she nearly left Hollywood because of sexism

Since glitter was the order of the day, Australian actress Cate Blanchett proved she's just as much as a shining star off screen, by sporting a two-piece bedazzled suit at the premiere in NY.

When Rihanna fans line up to see their girl in "Ocean's 8" this weekend, they will see a more casual side of the iconic singer. At a recent press conference in the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Temple of Dendur, the film's director Gary Ross recalled the first discussion he had with Rihanna about the character's costume. Although numerous same things I didn't care for in the Clooney and Co. films have carried over into this one, the good news is that at least it's not very bad, like the all-female "Ghostbusters" reboot.

Hathaway says she's "come to terms with the pressure" that society and the industry put on actresses to stay a certain size. In fact, Ghostbusters (2016) opened slightly higher than Ocean's 8 with a $46 million bow. And there's one amusing, tacit acknowledgment of a lightweight movie like this in the swirl of discussion about onscreen representation, a pep talk in which Bullock advises her crew not to do this for themselves or each other: "Somewhere out there, there's an eight-year-old girl in bed dreaming of being a criminal". That may be in part due to the older nature of the fandom: Not many childhoods were defined by Ocean's Eleven or Ocean's 11, the way they were by Star Wars or Ghostbusters, yielding fewer childish tantrums on social media.

Bullock, 53, said she was raised to believe that a woman could do anything a man could. The heist film centers on Wintour's Met ball.

When it additionally opens the summer after the #MeToo movement, as opposed to the summer before Harvey Weinstein's outing as a monster and "locker room talk" politics, Ocean's 8 was able to rise above erroneous critiques and be its own successful thing.

Working on Ocean's Eight was "a love fest". But with this premise, and this cast, it should've been an all-timer. And then it ended.

And while historically, female gangs have often been portrayed as clumsy or inexperienced, "Ocean's 8" presents Debbie and her accomplices as a diverse force to be reckoned with - with skills matching those of her brother's team.
