We wait weeks for some Felicity news and then 3 things come along at once.

On the 7th of September Felicity attended The Dreamy Awards hosted by her boyfriend Ed Fornieles, I have added one picture from the event to our gallery.

Last night Felicity also attended the exclusive opening of Rag & Bones London store, 2 photos from this even can be seen by clicking below:

 

Last, but certainly not least, Felicity recently interviewed with the Telegraph magazine. The interview is accompanied by a lovely new photo shoot picture and lets us know some more of Felicity’s fashion favourites!

I don’t have much time for shopping so pick things up when I can. My favourite labels are APC, Isabel Marant and Agnès B because the clothes are cut small and have a simplicity to them.

I felt most beautiful on the red carpet in Proenza Schouler’s mint-green dress (below) at the Gotham Independent Film Awards last November. I loved the colour and the style – dressy but still casual.

The shirt’s my favourite item. You can pair them with so many things. I have a great plain blue shirt from APC, and a denim one from Dolce that I wear constantly. It’s hard to find the perfect denim shirt, but this is it.

My most treasured item is the brown leather bag that my mum bought me from a little Italian shop for my 21st. It’s supposed to be a vanity bag, but I use it as a handbag.

The most extravagant thing I bought last year was a navy-blue Miu Miu suit (pictured). It’s quite 1960s: a short jacket with a T collar, and a short flared skirt.

I buy Wolford tights. They feel luxurious, fit so well and are really comfy. I think a dark opaque tight looks great in winter with a short skirt and a fitted shirt or jumper.

For autumn I’d love one of Miu Miu’s little satchel bags (pictured) – they do them in all these lovely pastels.

I would describe my look as ‘ladylike rock chick’.

If I could raid anyone’s closet it would be that of Patti Smith or the French actress Anna Karina. I love Smith’s androgynous style, and both women look fantastic in a slightly structured blazer.

Sony Pictures Classics has debuted the official trailer for Tanya Wexler’s Hysteria on Yahoo, set for release in New York and Los Angeles on May 18th and in Australia on the 12th of July. Starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, Hugh Dancy, Jonathan Pryce, Rupert Everett, and Felicity Jones, the romantic period comedy is based on the true story of how Mortimer Granville came up with the world’s first electromechanical vibrator in the name of medical science. With Dancy playing the ambitious doctor, Everett his partner and co-inventor, and Gyllenhaal as a free-spirited woman who becomes his close friend, the trailer shows off a humorous, if fairly uninspiring, film where Felicity Jones again steals the small amount of time she has on screen. A charming period comedy, watch the trailer below!

Watch the trailer for Tanya Wexler’s Hysteria:

Hysteria, a mischievously inspired romantic comedy set in the late 19th century, is based on the surprising truth of how Mortimer Granville came up with the world’s first electromechanical vibrator in the name of medical science.

We have some exciting casting news for you today.

Nancy Meyers is juggling a couple projects for her next directing slot. One she has committed to is The Chelsea, a script that was written by Hallie Meyers-Shyer. She is the daughter of Meyers and her ex, filmmaker Charles Shyer. Like Crazy star Felicity Jones is attached to star, and the film is being packaged by Meyers’ reps at WME.

It’s described as an ensemble dramedy set in the Chelsea Apartments in New York City. Meyers-Shyer is an up and coming scribe who’s being signed to a blind deal by Universal Pictures. Meyers, who last directed the Meryl Streep comedy It’s Complicated with Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin, will put together cast on the film before it is set up with a distributor.

WME reps Meyers and Meyers-Shyer, while CAA reps Jones. The British actress, who won a Gotham Award for her charming performance in Like Crazy, was selected by Warren Beatty to be the young female lead in his Howard Hughes movie, but Beatty is still putting that project together.

“She was insane. She writes a book every year cataloguing their relationship, she’s obsessed,” laughs Felicity Jones, the star of poignant romantic drama Like Crazy.

“I’m much more reticent and cautious. It wouldn’t be interesting watching someone being normal and reticent, it is mild insanity, but that’s more entertaining, and maybe that’s what love is.”

Jones is reflecting on the unique experience of playing the part of Anna, the crazily-in-love British student who falls, hard, for Californian carpenter Jacob (Anton Yelchin) during her exchange year. Director Drake Doremus captures on film that bewitching experience of first love where all goes well until practical things like visas, families and other people threaten to prick their romantic bubble.

The film is an intimate, intense affair to experience – was it the same to film? Jones nods vigorously:

“In fact, Drake, Anton and I spent the first week just talking about our experience of relationships, because you want to understand these people, so we had to understand each other first and build them from that…

“For that month, we were immersed in their world. It felt like Anton and I had been married four times and divorced by the end of it, in some ways you go through a relationship, with the crew, quite literally, under the covers with you.

“The idea was to make it as naturalistic as possible,” she goes on. “And the key to that was that we would forget the camera was there, make everything very small, and work from the inside out – you couldn’t do this on stage – the camera was very close, so we had to trust Drake and be as unegotistical as possible, luckily it turned out to be okay.”

It certainly did if critical acclaim is any marker. The film, despite its tiny budget, has taken the industry by storm, garnering a special jury prize at Sundance last year, and a Best Actress award for Jones, something she is delightfully ingenuous about:

“It was more of a bonus than an intention. I didn’t even know there was an award ceremony. I was at home in bed and got a call to say ‘you’ve won the acting award at Sundance’. I started screaming and running around my room.”

Jones is on a roll, after roles in Gervais-Merchant’s Cemetery Junction, bigger-budget comedy Chalet Girl and last year’s well-received Albatross, as well as being named the new face of Italian luxury brand Dolce & Gabanna.

But the actress who made her first mark in children’s TV drama The Worst Witch acknowledges that the acclaim for Like Crazy has been a career turning point.

“Since going to Sundance, I’ve had so many more opportunities. It’s just trying to work with good directors, and obviously when you’ve done something that people have seen, after spending a lot of time trying to convince people of your worth, it’s great to have something to show them.”

This sounds like an older, wiser soul than her whimsical on-screen character Anna talking. But Jones is 27, while Anna starts out as an impetuous 19-year-old:

“I age in the film from 19 to 27. I think when you’re that age, you just do things and don’t think them through.

“I’m far too rational, I think about things for days and am much more indecisive.”

Her eyes widen: “Get on the plane for love? No guy’s worth that… but then where would the entertainment be?”

Felicity Jones is making a name for herself by being an onscreen persona with some serious relationship issues. The 28-year-old actress just earned a Gotham Award for her performance in the indie hit “Like Crazy” and landed the role of one of Howard Hughes’ love interests in Warren Beatty’s biopic of the eccentric millionaire, and now she’s landed another part as a popular historical figure’s main squeeze. The Daily Mail is reporting that she’ll play Charles Dickens’ mistress of 13 years, Nelly Ternan, in an adaptation of the novel “The Invisible Woman.”

Ralph Fiennes will direct the adaptation, and we’re hoping he’ll star in the film as Dickens as well. Fiennes is hot off his well-received directorial debut “Coriolanus,” which is getting an Oscar run in New York and Los Angeles starting today.

Considering the fact Dickens is one of the most well-known authors in the English language, it’s interesting that few films have been made about his life. According to Amazon, “The Invisible Woman” offers the “fullest account to date of Charles Dickens’s secret 13-year romance with actress Ellen “Nelly” Ternan.” Historical sources point at Ternan for being the reason Dickens separated from his wife Catherine, because the latter accidentally received a bracelet meant for Dickens’ mistress. The two never married.

Filming on “The Invisible Woman” is said to start during spring or summer 2012 with BBC films producing. It will likely be released at some point in 2013.

I have a very exciting update for you today. Firstly, I have added 10 lovely new stills from Like Crazy to our gallery – I am getting more and more excited for this film as the days go by!

This article is also featured in the Daily News, alongside a gorgeous new photo shoot which I have added to our gallery (thanks to fjonesfans for the tip!).

And lastly, W Magazine has feautured a nice short interview with Felicity discussing her role as Anna in Like Crazy:

The story is simple enough: a smitten British exchange student (newcomer Felicity Jones) writes a multi-page letter to her American boy crush (Anton Yelchin), sticks it on the windshield of his car, and first blush love ensues. The camera steeps the viewer in a flutter of gazes, whispers, laughs and oxygen-cutting kisses, all so deliriously addictive that the heroine overstays — and thus violates — her visa in order to spend the rest of summer by his side in California. Though Anna and Jacob love each other “like crazy,” immigration issues, the physical distance between Los Angeles and London, and the wiles of more convenient partners (enter the white-hot Jennifer Lawrence), make their relationship achingly impossible. It’s an impediment that traps the next seven years in a series of long-distance courtship starts and stops.

What drew you to the film?
I received the outline in my flat in London, sat down in one sitting, and read it in one go. I loved the tone of it, and the idea of improvising a film was really exciting. I had never realized it was a way of making a film, of actually improvising directly to camera.

Last night Felicity attended a Burberry launch event, looking cute as a button and a little black dress!

Felicity has also been featured in Black Book Magazine, in a lovely long article with a fantastic new photoshoot to accompany it.

Felicity Jones is in need of a pep talk. Tomorrow, the petite brunette—who in person looks like a graduate-student version of Audrey Hepburn—will head to Los Angeles to begin the final leg of the promotional tour for her new film, Like Crazy. Reporters, bloggers, and curious fans will grill the 27-year-old about her role in the vérité romance, and she will oblige them. “I’m getting to talk about something I really believe in,” she says. “If it were anything less than that, it would be much harder.” When the questions inevitably turn personal, Jones will instinctively tighten up. Like Crazy emerged from obscurity to win the Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, igniting a bidding war won by Paramount. Jones was awarded the special Jury Prize for her own work in the bruising love story about the stop-start masochism of a long distance relationship, and she is keenly aware that journalists—this one included—will look to identify links between the actor and her character, Anna.
