Eve Hewson talks

Eve Hewson

Bono’s daughter, Eve Hewson said that her
dad’s celebrity status can bring out the worst in people and she’s
learned how to spot the fakers.

Hewson
(21) is currently studying acting at New York City University and says
that most of the time she is not recognized. But when people want to
become friends with her because of her rock star connection, it’s
obvious. She can instantly recognize the people who are only interested
in befriending her because of her father’s fame.

She told ‘Flaunt’ magazine, “It’s made it, in some ways, easier to find friends because it brings out certain bad things in people.” She
added, “Then you can see easier. Well, you can smell the desperation in
people.” Hewson commented about other people, “It’s just like, how you
can hang out, if you can tell a good story, if you can make a good
laugh.”

Her parents kept her out of the
limelight while she was growing up in southside Dublin. She said,
“Obviously, every now and then someone would start singing a U2 song at a
party, but aside from that, it’s not really about who you are, what you
have.” She is Bono’s youngest daughter. She has an older sister, Jordan
(23) and two younger brothers, Elijah (14) and John Abraham (11).

The
young actress is already heading towards a celebrity status all her
own. She has received praise for her performance ‘This Must Be the
Place’ in which she plays the surrogate daughter of a depressed rock
star, who was played by Sean Penn. However, she says she did not receive
much attention while the film was in production. She said, “Nobody
really cares about me. There are other famous actors on set that are
more fascinating.”

Hewson recently
finished filming ‘Blood Ties’, which features many big Hollywood names.
Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, James Caan, and Marion Cotillard star in the
film.

She says Juliette Lewis and Evan
Rachel are her influences and likes that Frances McDormand chooses
different, sometimes quirky roles. Hewson said, “I think you have to be
very forward about what you want. You have to be confident that you have
a vision and that you want to play different sides of yourself. I think
the crazier and weirder you are you will be able to get out there.”
