Alice Eve is back in the media spotlight but this time it is for the 'right' reasons. The talented English actress will be part of the cast of the dramatic film "Please Stand By" which represents a huge win for her career (Hollywood Reporter - May 13).
Her being chosen for this roles is being looked at by some fans as a statement being made by the producers and directors of the film that her talent is so extraordinary that they are want her for this movie despite any potential backlash for her comments about Bruce Jenner. Recently she received much criticism on social media target after she voiced her disagreement about Bruce Jenner considering himself "for all intents and purposes" that he is a woman (Daily Mail - May 6).
The film "Please Stand By" is scheduled for release in 2016 and some of her fans expect that her part in the controversy will be mostly forgotten by that time. However, for Alice Eve, the announcement at this particular time with the issue still fresh in the minds of entertainment viewers is a statement from the producers of the movie that they believe she is an elite actress whose talent and reputation as a good person on and off the set far outweigh one public relations mistake.
The announcement could easily have been delayed for a couple weeks until the issue had 'died down' but by making the announcement the film studio and producers of the film, Daniel Dubiecki and Lara Alameddine are making it apparent that they consider her to be a star and providing a huge endorsement of her talent without actually making a press release.
Alice Eve started 2015 in a way many women dream of by getting married on New Years Eve 2014 to her high school sweetheart, financies Alex Cowper Smith and she has received in 2015 another great and likely much unexpected career 'present' in the form of an endorsement of her acting talent with the announcement of her as part of the cast of the highly anticipated film "Please Stand By".
