Eve Hewson felt like an “outsider” as a child.
The 31-year-old star – who is the daughter of activist Ali Hewson and U2 singer Bono – was a huge ‘ET the Extra-Terrestrial’ fan during her younger years, and Eve still remembers being linked to a particular character.
She shared, “I was so in love with that movie I thought it sort of felt like an outsider. But everyone’s talking about Elliott, like on my birthday they’ll be singing ‘Elliott “. Everyone knew Elliott.”
Eve grew up in the spotlight and she accepts that her life was never “normal”.
She told The Independent, “My life was definitely not normal. It was normal half the time, and…no, none of it was normal.”
Meanwhile, Eve previously admitted to having suffered from “horrific and violent nightmares” since childhood.
The actress shared: “Ever since I was a child I have had horrific and violent nightmares.
“My mom said she would hear me screaming from my bunk bed. And I was jumping and running down the hall with my hair sticking out like crazy and I was jumping on her bed… I was shaking, I had all these nightmares of witches and gremlins and I never really grew up with that.”
Eve’s mother actually suggested that the nightmares were triggered by a TV show.
In fact, she even offered Eve money to get her to stop watching the show.
The ‘Behind Her Eyes’ star explained: “I remember my mum telling me she would give me some extra spending money if I stopped watching ‘Home and Away’ because she thought that my nightmares stemmed from the plots of this soap opera.
“But yeah, I’ve had them all my life and they got a little better as I got older, but I’m the type of person, I’ll talk in my sleep. Scream and cry. I’ll wake up with sweats cold.”
