Although little is known about her cameo, Katie Holmes was pictured on the set. In March, she described the experience as “fun”, telling People: “It’s going to be a great female caper film. It won’t disappoint.”
Zayn Malik‘s robot arm as worn to the 2017 Met Gala attracted a slew of headlines, so it’s no surprise that he should feature in one of the film’s Met Gala scenes. He was seen leaving the set in January 2017 in a white tuxedo jacket and black trousers.
Technically speaking, James Corden has more than just a cameo in Ocean’s 8 – he plays an insurance investigator who grows suspicious of the women organising the heist.
Alexander Wang is one of several designers to appear in the film. As a Met Gala regular (he’s been seen on the arm of Bella Hadid and Lady Gaga in the past), his appearance will no doubt make the scene more authentic.
Tommy Hilfiger joins Alexander Wang, Zac Posen, Jason Wu, Jonathan Simkhai, and Dennis Basso as designers that feature in the film’s Met Gala scene. Hailey Baldwin shared an Instagram image of herself with Hilfiger and his wife, all decked in their finery, while they were shooting together.
Hailey Baldwin will make her acting debut in Ocean’s 8, although details of her cameo are so far unknown.
Olivia Munn is another to appear in one of the big Met Gala scenes. She admitted that she was excited to be part of the all-star line-up. “As long as I can be hanging out with…well, that cast—I’m just as excited as everybody else,” she told E Online.
The cameos aren’t limited to fashion – tennis ace Maria Sharapova told Sport 360 that she has a “small role”, but isn’t sure if she’ll make the final cut. “I think in the end you don’t know if your part will be actually in the movie. It was a really nice invitation,” she said. The director was very nice to work with and I was alongside very talented individuals so it just, it’s a different experience. It’s very different from what I do and I enjoy being part of those things.”
One of the most surprising reported cameos comes by way of Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova, who is rumoured to make an appearance – although it’s not been confirmed.
