If you had one question to ask actor Daniel Day-Lewis, what would it be? The man who has won two Oscars, who is tipped for his third, and who rarely gives interviews, would take one question from The Irish Times yesterday at the premiere of Lincoln. This is what the slightly scary people from Fox movies told the assembled press in a briefing yesterday afternoon, as we squashed up at the end of the red carpet that ran from the Gresham Hotel through the sleet of O’Connell Street into the Savoy Cinema.

Forty-five minutes, which is how long it took the trio of Hollywood superstars – Day-Lewis, director Steven Spielberg and actor Sally Field – to arrive in the cinema foyer, is a very long time to fret about asking one question.

PROVENANCE: Dublin, Ireland.

AGE: 21.

ROCK STARLET: Despite growing up as music royalty—Bono is her father—Hewson, who graduates from N.Y.U. this December, had a grounded childhood. “My parents work really hard to make sure that we don’t feel entitled. They just don’t spoil us. They want us to work for things.”

PARENTAL SUPPORT: When Hewson decided as a teenager to become an actress, her parents at first had misgivings. “I think because they’ve been around that world and they know what Hollywood is, especially for a woman—it can be really difficult.” They’ve since become enthusiastic supporters. “They’re excited about it now, almost too much. They’re like obsessed parents, but it’s cute.”

BIG START: Hewson landed her first major movie role in the Sean Penn film This Must Be the Place, which debuted at Sundance this year and is set for commercial release in January. She says of her co-star, “He was actually really fun. He wasn’t as Method as you’d think. It was a fun set.”

IRISH-AMERICAN GIRL: In addition to an untitled project with indie darling Nicole Holofcener in the works, Hewson is planning to move from New York to L.A. following her graduation. And she speaks without an Irish lilt these days. “When I go home, all of my friends are like, ‘Shut up with that American accent. You’re Irish. You better talk like an Irish person.’ ”

Born Memphis Eve in Dublin, the blue-eyed brunette now lives quietly in Brooklyn with her boyfriend… but all that could be about to change thanks to her star turn in the hotly anticipated, This Must Be the Place.

She plays Mary, a key support to Sean Penn’s retired rocker Cheyenne who goes on a mission from Dublin to the US to track down the SS officer who tortured his father in Auschwitz.
