Here's how 'Uncut Gems' breakout star Julia Fox went from the NYC art scene to acting alongside Hollywood legend Adam Sandler in her first film.
'Uncut Gems' starring Adam Sandler, Julia Fox, Idina Menzel, and Kevin Garnett is the crime, comedy-drama brining 2019 to a strong finish for film. Between Sandler's uncharacteristic serious role, another brilliant production by the Safdie brothers, and a breakout performance from Julia Fox — it's easy to see why 'Uncut Gems' is creating a log of buzz.
'I just never thought in a million years that I would be, like, sharing a kiss on-screen with Adam Sandler.' To the surprise of critics, 'Uncut Gems' is Fox's first-ever role, and she has her friends the Safdie brothers to thank.
Fox grew up in NYC and has bounced between the fashion, photography, and art scenes, where her path eventually crossed Josh and Benny Safdie. Although she never acted previously, she felt as if she was born to create visions — hers and the visions of others that she believes in. Whether that involve jewelry heists or being behind the camera.
In this interview with Julia Fox, we're unpacking what her first film experience was like, working with Adam Sandler, and how her character overlapped with her younger self.
As far as the future goes, Julia hopes to keep acting, and to turn her efforts toward passion projects and stories that she believes the world needs to know. Seeking justice for sex trafficking survivors is close to her heart.
