Anne Hathaway has praised Sandra Bullock for making Ocean’s Eight such a child-friendly set.
The 34-year-old actress, who is mother to 11-month-old Jonathan with husband Adam Shulman, started filming the movie last November (16), when her son was just eight months old.
But Anne had few concerns over how she was going to manage both looking after Jonathan with shooting the film, as star Sandra made it clear she could bring the tot to the set.
“I only have one experience (of resources available to mums in Hollywood) so far, and it’s a movie that stars eight women, four of whom are mothers – which is definitely not the norm,” Anne told Motto magazine. “On Ocean’s Eight, kids were welcome on the set. (Before we started) I got an email from Sandra Bullock saying, ‘Hey, listen, we’re going to make this a really welcoming place for kids. I know you’re a brand-new mom, so don’t be afraid to bring your son. We love kids here.’ Change is going to come, but it’s going to take people like her with the power to make change to demand it.”
Ocean’s Eight, an all-female reboot of the heist films, stars Anne and Sandra alongside Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna and Mindy Kaling, while Matt Damon, Damian Lewis, Dakota Fanning and James Corden are among the other names cast for the movie.
Anne is already preparing herself for the inevitable sexist comments Ocean’s Eight is sure to receive upon release, but has faith that co-stars Sandra and Cate can handle any rude remarks.
“In this movie there are eight women starring, so it may well attract that sort of attention. But good luck to any person who tries to take on Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett because you’re not going to win,” she laughed. – Hollywood.com
In January, Rihanna posted the first cast picture of Ocean’s Eight on her twitter:
Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow kicked off Monday morning by sharing the first official image from the spinoff, featuring all eight leading ladies: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina.
The film’s first logline also revealed the group’s character names and event setting: “The tide will turn as Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) attempts to pull off the heist of the century at New York City’s star-studded annual Met Gala. Her first stop is to assemble the perfect crew: Lou (Cate Blanchett); Nine Ball (Rihanna); Amita (Mindy Kaling); Constance (Awkwafina); Rose (Helena Bonham Carter); Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway); and Tammy (Sarah Paulson).” – The Hollywood Reporter
Ocean’s Eight is set to be released in the US on June 08, 2018

Sandra was spotted filming Ocean’s Eight in New York on January 13 and 24:
Sandra covered the October 2016 issue of Fair Lady Magazine. The article is about her being called “The boss” by George Clooney:
Known for her humility, self-deprecating sense of humor, intelligence and candour, actress Sandra Bullock is much more than she appears to be. George Clooney calls her ‘the boss’ – and that just about says it all.
Happy Birthday, Sandra! I wish your every day to be filled with lots of love and happiness! ❤
According to Showbiz411, the information about Cate Blanchett joining Sandra in Ocean’s Eleven female reboot is confirmed. Shooting is set to start early next year in New York.
