Mission Impossible star Thandie Newton is relishing filming Guy Ritchie’s latest gangster caper – because she’s the only woman star.
“It’s great, I’m working with all these big men,” joked the petite actress, who is shooting Mr Madonna’s new film, RocknRolla, with Phantom Of The Opera star Gerard Butler and Full Monty actor Tom Wilkinson.
“It is fun and very interesting to have the chance to observe boys doing the boy things. I am very much enjoying being the only girl,” she told us at the Great Ormond Street F1 party at The Worx in London’s Parsons Green.
And Thandie, 34, says that being directed by Guy is a dream. “He is so easy to work with,” she gushed.
“I think people who loved Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels will enjoy this movie – it carries on in that vein but at the same time it’s a departure for him.”
