Eve Hewson revealed how she stole rock star dad Bono’s address book to name his celeb friends when she was younger

The 29-year-old actress joked “one of the best moments” of her life was when she called singer Justin Timerlake with her sister Jordan

The starlet told ITVs This Morning, “I stole my dad’s address book when I was younger and we tried calling a few people, but Justin Timberlake answered and we asked him trivia questions from the back of a cereal box It was one of the best moments of my life

“He just kept answering I don’t know what it takes to win, he has to be a very competitive person I think he was delighted with us,” she added

The Behind Her Eyes actress also went on tour with U2 during her childhood

She said she loved growing up with a famous father as it allowed her to have almost double the life with a healthy balance of showbiz glamor and her “normal Dublin life”

“It was extraordinary, in a way, I got the best of both worlds because I grew up in Dublin, went to school and had my regular life in Dublin

“Every now and then we have to go on tour with my father and experience this magical, funny rock’n’roll experience and then just take the train to school again. So it was a wild balance”

She confessed that she initially struggled getting into character as the cunning Adele, but shared her solution with viewers

She stated, “I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to reach the level of aggression that Adele needs to achieve

“There wasn’t time to prepare between scenes, so I was given a baseball bat and pillow and just hit that thing just before it was shot. That kind helped me get into the zone,” she continued,
