The “Ocean’s 8” cast denied rumours of a feud as they appeared on Friday’s “Graham Norton Show”.
Helena Bonham Carter, Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna, and Cate Blanchett joined the British talk show host for the latest episode, with them insisting they all got along well despite people not necessarily thinking that they would.
Bullock, 53, explained: “We were expected not to get on.
“My publicist got an email from a tabloid saying they had heard I wasn’t getting on with everyone else on set and I really took it personally until I found out each one of us had got the exact same email. Everyone wanted us to be pulling each other’s hair out but it’s just not true.”
Carter, 52, added, “They wanted the cliche of a group of women not getting on, but we didn’t live up to it,” and then admitted to doing some astrology research into her co-stars before working with them.
“I found out everyone’s birthday and I knew who I would get on with. I didn’t decide anything about anyone beforehand, but I just wanted to know what I was going into. It can be very useful.”
Friday’s show also saw the “Harry Potter” star discuss playing Princess Margaret in “The Crown”, taking over the role from Vanessa Kirby. “I’ve got two weeks to prepare so I’ve got to find her character soon.”
When asked if the accent will be easy for her, Bonham Carter joked, “I’m posh, but not that posh!”
Talk then turned to Rihanna and her new music, with the singer admitting that she’s “in the studio at the moment.”
She added, “You’ll just have to wait and see,” when asked when fans can expect to hear it.
