Eve, who is starring as the lead in Netflix’s Behind Her Eyes, spoke about her father’s behaviour during an interview with OK! magazine

She said: ‘He used to blast Backstreet Boys in his car in traffic on the way to school. He’d get out of the car in his dressing gown and dance with his glasses on, and we’d be mortified.’

Eve added: ‘He used to drive us to school and play whatever songs U2 were working on at the time. We’d be very upset if the version we liked didn’t make it onto the album.’

It came after Eve revealed Bono is always ‘talking’ about her acting profession and they are ‘constantly giving each other advice’ in their careers.

Talking to the Mirror, she said: ‘I always say that my dad’s a crazy stage mother. Whenever we’re out and about he’s always introducing me and talking about me and he gives my full movie credits to whoever we’re having dinner with.’

Eve added that her parents were initially against her going into performing but they are now ‘supportive’ over her career with the U2 rocker even giving advice. 

She continued: ‘It’s more that I just ask him his opinion on many things rather than on one specific thing. We’re constantly giving each other advice, to be honest. I tell him all of my opinions about his career, so it’s a two-way street.’

Eve first made her film debut in the 2005 short movie, Lost and Found, alongside her sister Jordan, 31. The actress went on to appear in the 2008 feature-length The 27 Club.

The Luminaries actress insisted that ‘no one cares’ that she is the daughter of U2 rocker Bono.

She added: ‘No one knows who I am and no one cares. I could jump in front of a cameraman and he’d just tell me to get out of the way.’ 

Eve’s latest project is Netflix series Behind Her Eyes, which follows a single mother who enters a world of mind games when she begins an affair with her psychiatrist boss, while also secretly befriending his mysterious wife. 

The actress, who plays Adele, has a lot of intimate scenes with co-star Tom Bateman, who stars as her on-screen husband David.

Eve revealed that she has had a ‘lot of experience’ doing sex scenes and that filming was one of the ‘best experiences’ she has had due to the production hiring the intimacy coach used on Normal People, which made things ‘sensitively’ shot. 

The new interview comes after Eve revealed that she has enjoyed being able to ‘build her own identity’ separate from her famous father.

The actress said that she knew from an early age she would never have any ‘anonymity’ no matter what career she chose.

Speaking to The Telegraph, she said: ‘To be honest, I was never going to have my anonymity and be a regular Joe.

‘I was always going to have eyes on me, whatever I did, so it’s been great to build my own identity and my own career and feel like I’m an individual now, as opposed to a part of something or someone else.’

Eve joked her dad is looking forward to the day someone asks him: ‘Are you Eve Hewson’s father?’ rather than people asking her about him. 

The actresses parents were initially concerned about her choice to become an actress, given the additional scrutiny she would have to deal with as their daughter. However, they soon realised she could handle it. 

Eve’s latest project is Netflix series Behind Her Eyes, which follows a single mother who enters a world of mind games when she begins an affair with her psychiatrist boss, while also secretly befriending his mysterious wife.

Eve plays the mysterious wife of David (Tom Bateman) who embarks on an affair with lead character Louise (Simona Brown).

In the psychological thriller, Louise becomes embroiled in an unconventional love triangle with David and Adele, one that takes a dark and unexpected turn.

Behind Her Eyes is based on the best-selling book by Sarah Pinborough, and was adapted for series by Steve Lightfoot.

The star said she hates playing roles that are based on looks and wants to ‘puke’ whenever she reads a script about ‘the most beautiful girl in the room’. 

She explained: ‘You’re putting yourself in a position where your job is to be attractive. Then you’re evaluated by the people who are hiring you, as to whether you are attractive ‘enough’ – which is a very weird position to find yourself in.’

It comes after Eve recently admitted her father refused to hire ‘good-looking support bands’ because she was such a ‘little troublemaker’ in her teenage years. 

Discussing her rebellious childhood and ‘hopeless’ love life in the Spring issue of Town and Country magazine, Eve said: ‘We were little troublemakers.

‘There got to a point in my teens when my dad couldn’t hire good-looking support bands any more. He was like, ‘No more boys in their twenties, please God!’ 

The Irish actress also discussed her current love life, which she admitted was ‘disappointing’ and revealed her hopes for the creation of ‘robot boyfriends’.

She said: ‘It’s hopeless out there. It’s really a disappointment. I’ve heard they’re creating these girlfriend robots and hopefully soon they’ll do boyfriend robots, so I think I’m just going to wait for those.’

Eve quipped: ‘You could just unplug them when they bother you.’ 

As well as discussing her career achievements, Eve also touched on her ‘loving’ relationship with her family.

She said: ‘We complain about each other all day long, but we’re genuinely kind of madly in love.’

‘There was the fear that I would go off to LA and become some celebrity kid running around on Rodeo Drive. I think any parent bringing up a kid in a certain lifestyle would have those fears.’

Alongside daughters Eve and Jordan, Bono – real name Paul Hewson – also shares sons Elijah, 21 and John, 19, with wife Ali.
