Sarah Paulson Dishes on the ‘Ocean’s Eight’ Group Text of Our Dreams
Making a cameo in Ocean’s Eight may have cost Olivia Munn money, but we’re sure it was worth it to get the chance to hang out with the superstar group of women — Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna, and Awkwafina — who make up the movie’s cast. What would make it even better is if Munn could wiggle her way into what sounds like the most amazing group text EVER.

“I’m not going to lie, it is a very cool chain to be part of,” Paulson said while sitting down for a new interview with The Edit. The stars don’t chat every day, but when they do, they go all in. “We can go weeks without a chirp, then someone sends one message, and it’s like — ‘brp, brp, brp’ — your phone just blows up for hours.”
This isn’t the first time the 42-year-old has let us in on insider details regarding the text conversations among the group. She told Entertainment Tonight back in January, “We’re all texting each other, making a plan for this dinner that we’re having in New York. But the things that are going on in this text chain, you would lose your mind.” Yeah, we have no doubt about that.
While we may never know the mind-blowing things these ladies text each other, we’re excited to see them on screen together in Ocean’s Eight, the all-female installment of the popular Ocean’s Eleven franchise that starred George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Julia Roberts, and a stellar ensemble of other actors.
This time around, the ladies are at the helm as they attempt to steal a necklace from the Met Gala while framing a gallery owner (played by Damien Lewis) for the crime.
Ocean’s Eight is set to hit theaters on June 8, 2018.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
