10 Things to Know About Like Crazy’s Felicity Jones (aka The Next Rachel McAdams)

By  | 


Do you know how long it’s been since we saw a romance flick? And not like a supernatural one like Twilight or a rom-com like Friends With Benefits. We’re talking like a full-fledged romantic movie like The Notebook. Yeah, you probs haven’t even heard of one in the past, like, 7 years. Well that drought’s offish ending this week with the premiere of Like Crazy, starring Anton Yelchin and newbie Felicity Jones. Obvs you already know about cutie Anton, so let’s tell ya everything you need to know about FelJo! (That’s right, we nicknamed her already.)

MORE: We’re crazy for Like Crazy!

1. Unlike Kristen Stewart and Lily Collins, Felicity turned down the role of Snow White to appear in a play.

2. Felicity says she only worked with Katy Perry‘s hubby Russell Brand for one day on The Tempest set. But she still thought he was hilar, obviously.


3. Felicity played two of her characters on four different TV shows. She starred as Ethel Hallow in The Worst Witch and Weirdsister College. Then she played Margot Frank in The Diary of Anne Frank and Masterpiece.


4. Felicity is close friends with PiratesKeira Knightley, but she’s actually biffsters with Shia LaBeouf‘s ex, (and fellow Brit!) Carey Mulligan.

5. Felicity currently lives in London with long-term boyf, Ed Fornieles. (Wonder if it’ll last considering she’ll be shot to super-stardom like, any minute now!)

6. So far, Felicity has helped win a Sundance Award for Romance Story (for Like Crazy). We’re sure there will be plenty more where that came from, though.

7. Felicity’s following in Emma Watson‘s footsteps — she’s the new face of Burberry!


8. Speaking of Harry Potter stars, Felicity’s working on upcoming flicks with two of them! Bill Nighy (aka the Minister of Magic) and Ralph Fiennes (aka Voldemort).


9. Felicity becomes attracted to Ed Westwick in her next flick, Chalet Girl (who wouldn’t?), while he’s dating Sophia Bush (in the flick). We smell The CW-like dramz already.


10. She was nominated for the Breakthrough Actor, Gotham Independent Film Award. Fingers crossed for the November 28th reveal!


Do you think Felicity will be the next Rachel McAdams? Will you see Like Crazy this weekend? Who should we choose as our next New Kid? Tell us here.
