Barbara Broccoli ranks in THR's Women in Entertainment 2012

Bond News - 07-12-12
The Bond co-producer Barbara Broccoli has been ranked number #36 by The Hollywood Reporter on their list of most powerful women in entertainment. Topping the rankings is Anne Sweeney, co-chairman of Disney and coming in third is Broccoli's colleague, Amy Pascal, Co-chairman, Sony Pictures Entertainment.

The trade press also asked the women a few quick fire questions. Here are Broccoli's responses:

When I leave work each day, I can't wait to: Go to sleep. When you're based in London, you get up early and are shooting all day, and then L.A. starts phoning you.

Favorite way to unwind on the weekend: Reading the Sunday papers with a big pot of coffee.

Most surprising song on my iPod: Adele, but is that surprising?

Proudest moment this year: On the 50th anniversary [of the release of the first Bond movie] on Oct. 5, we did a charity auction in London at Sotheby's and raised a couple million dollars for UNICEF and a couple of other charities.

Totally starstruck around: People in public service.

What I'd tell my 22-year-old self about working in Hollywood: "Don't be ruled by fear."

Best advice I've gotten: From my father: "Don't let temporary people make permanent decisions."

Top three shows on my DVR: Homeland, Breaking Bad and Meet the Press.
