The eagerly anticipated Ocean’s 8 movie features a powerhouse all-star, all female cast. Just like Ghostbusters, Bridesmaids, and preceding the upcoming all-female remake of Lord of the Flies, Ocean’s 8 features some of our all-time, favourite female leads.

Apart from the fact that she nails both comedies and dramas easily, she’s also uber generous. She donated $1 million to the Haiti Earthquake fund and another $1 million to the Red Cross. Plus she hilariously accepted her own Razzie award.

Not only has she been nominated for an Academy Award an impressive seven times, she’s the only Australian actress to win two of them for acting. She’s spearheaded the #metoo movement, so it’s only natural that she’s in this killer all-female movie.

Strong and sexy, RiRi isn’t afraid of anything. She’s won a bunch of awards, can act as well as sing and she makes and breaks fashion trends like it’s no biggie. Plus, she embodied everything we want to be when she famously wore that nude see-through dress at the CFDA Fashion Awards…

She’s a writer, producer, comedian and actress. Is there anything Mindy Kaling can’t do? Although, we’ve loved her ever since she was Kelly on The Office, we became obsessed with her after reading her best-selling novel.

Not only has she won a Golden Globe for her TV work (and starred in American Horror Story) but Sarah Paulson has also conquered the big screen in movies as varied as 12 Years a Slave and What Women Want. Plus, were jealous of the #couplegoals she has with girlfriend Holland Taylor.

American rapper, comedian and actress Nora Lum, known as Awkwafina, is not only hilarious on Youtube, but she’s brilliant in Crazy Rich Asians and Bad Neighbours 2, as well. We predict she’s bringing some New York sass to this film…

Speaking of sass, meet HBC. British-born Helena has made a living from playing some seriously memorable characters (have you seen Harry Potter, Fight Club or Alice in Wonderland?) and we love her for it.

Anne Hathaway

Having starred in some of the biggest films of the century and with some of the best actors in the business, Anne Hathaway is well on the way to becoming Hollywood royalty. She’s handled all the hate that’s been through at her like a queen and she’s totally won us over in the process.
