Barbara Broccoli ranks in THR's Women in Entertainment 2012
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.
