Why Hayley ditched Twitter and Facebook
Tom Hodgkinson: Tell us about your attitude to different social media, Facebook, Twitter?
Hayley Atwell: I came off Twitter. I had close to a million followers and I had women, girls in particular, saying, “Thanks to your character, I’m seventy days self-harm free”. They would project a lot on to me, that I was their saviour. I understand it was a fifteen-year old girl thing. I’m sure I did it when I was that age. But I didn’t quite know what to do with it. I wasn’t sure what I felt either way so I came off it for a bit. And I came off Facebook. I found that there were probably only about ten people on Facebook that I actually would have gone for a cup of tea with. The other thing I felt is that it stopped me from being able to have face-to-face conversations with people. I would know what my godchildren were doing and looked like, but not because I’d spent any time with them. My best mate doesn’t know that I’ve seen all this. It’s not a conversation. So I actually found that social media was making me very lonely. I would see other people’s posts, and we only project what we want the world to see, so it was all bullshit. So I came off of it and went back on Instagram. But I made some social media rules that I now live by, which is to never post when hungry, angry, lonely or tired. Don’t look up ex-boyfriends. Don’t look up people that you’re jealous of. Don’t Google yourself. Do not read comments. Contribute positively. Don’t engage in controversy or become too political.
This evening Hayley attended the 61st BFI London Film Festival Awards in London where she also presented the Grierson Award to Lucy Cohen for her documentary Kingdom of Us. I hope to have screencaptures of her presenting in the gallery soon. Enjoy!
Thanks to Deadline, we have a tentative release date for Christopher Robin: August 3rd, 2018!
In addition, the untitled live action Disney fairy tale slot occupied for Aug. 3, 2018 has been designated to Disney’s untitled Christopher Robin Project. For a while, many were wondering what this film would be. This is the Marc Forster-directed film about the working class Robin, played by Ewan McGregor, who encounters Winnie-the-Pooh who sets him back on a joyful life. Hayley Atwell also stars. Unlike this past August which lacked a marquee title to kick off August, the hope here is that Disney actually has one to carry us through the last month of summer.
I’ve add nine new photos of Hayley (and co-star Ewan McGregor) filming Christopher Robin on September 3rd. I love the costumes and Hayley’s hat! Please credit Hayley Atwell Online if you repost,
On August 18th, Hayley attended the press night after party in support of her friend and former co-star Ben whishaw for his play Against at the The Almeida Theatre in London. HQ photos have been added to the gallery. Enjoy!
How exciting is this?! Hayley was cast alongside Ewan McGregor for Disney’s production of Christopher Robin. Thanks to Variety, we have some information on the project:
“Christopher Robin” follows Disney’s ongoing model of taking animated classics from its archives and giving them a live-action spin, centering on Robin (McGregor), the little boy from the “Winnie the Pooh” series, who is now all-grown-up and lost all sense of imagination. Pooh and his friends reenter Robin’s life to help him find it once again. Atwell will play Robin’s wife.
I’m so excited now that we’re getting photos and news! Starz recently announced on their official twitter that Howard’s End will premiere sometime at the beginning of next year. I’ve added three additional HQ stills to the gallery.
I’ve updated the gallery with HQ photos of Hayley during the press tour for Howard’s End. I’ve also added a portrait featuring Hayley, Matthew Macfadyen and Tracey Ullman to the gallery. Enjoy!
