Actress Vanessa Kirby Didn’t Settle for the Costume-Drama Route


She is known for her breakout role as Princess Margaret on the first two seasons of The Crown, now Vanessa is getting Oscars buzz in ’Pieces of a Woman’

Kirby won the best actress prize at Venice for the movie

The opening of the film finds her playing a pregnant woman who goes into labor at home with her husband and a less-than-competent midwife.

"Some things in life are just messy, unpalatable to watch. Birth can be grotesque; but it’s completely magic and sacred. I feel that’s life. I watched a ton of movies with births, but they were sanitized versions. Eventually, I wrote to obstetricians about observing. The doctor who delivered Katherine Waterston’s baby (her costar in The World to Come) finally said I could shadow a birth. I sat there for five hours taking in a very difficult one—forceps, no painkillers. The woman delivering felt really sick, really queasy.

Next up, Kirby is shooting Mission Impossible 7 and 8. She has nothing but praise for costar Tom Cruise:

“Any single woman he shoots with instantly becomes his tabloid girlfriend,” says Kirby, who is single after splitting from her longtime actor-boyfriend, Callum Turner, in February. “But Tom really is the loveliest, the hardest-working man in show business, with a great work ethic. And he tells a great Kubrick story. I’ve learned so much from him.” She adds, “He and I were laughing on the phone the other day about me being his future ex-wife.”

Her $1 million donation to Vanderbilt University has contributed to the development of Moderna's vaccine - you can't save 2020 much more than that. Oh, but in case you needed another reason to love Dolly this year, she also spoke up in support of Black Lives Matter, saying, “Of course Black lives matter. Do you think our little white asses are the only ones that matter? No!” How to even sum up John Boyega's 2020? He's spoken out very publicly about his thoughts on how his role in Star Wars dwindled over the course of the trilogy, but more importantly, he spoke up even louder at a Black Lives Matter demonstration in London, making waves with his passionate speech.
