Bono and his wife Ali missed their two daughters so much when they moved to America that they have moved to New York to be with them.

Ali told the Evening Herald at the launch of her new project “Secret Art” that “I just couldn’t bear it” when her two girls left, one for Columbia University and the other for NYU.

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.’ ”

Bono’s beautiful daughter Eve Hewson shines at screening of her movie This Must Be the Place

By AMELIA PROUD


With her daddy fronting one of the world’s most successful rock bands, Eve Hewson must know a bit about fame… thought her subtle demeanour doesn’t betray this.

The absolutely stunning 21-year-old has been quietly building a reputation in the acting world; without shouting from the rooftops that she’s the second daughter of U2 star, Bono.


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.
