Claire Foy Considers Skiping Oscars 2023

The 'Women Talking' actress may not attend the upcoming 95th annual Academy Awards since it takes place on the same day her daughter celebrates birthday.

AceShowbiz - Claire Foy considers not going to the Oscars. Despite her latest movie "Women Talking" - which is directed by writer Sarah Polley and also stars the likes of Rooney Mara, Jessie Buckley, Judith Ivey, Ben Whishaw, Frances McDormand, and Sheila McCarthy - being nominated for Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay at the upcoming ceremony, the 38-year-old actress is tempted to skip the event.

The British star admitted it hasn't yet decided which of the cast will be invited to go, but she thinks she should step aside because the event takes place in California on March 13, the same day her and ex-husband Stephen Campbell Moore's daughter Ivy turns eight.

Asked if she is going to the Academy Awards, she said, "I don't know. There are 12 of us in the cast so it depends on who they pick to go with them. It's my child's birthday that day so I probably shouldn't go. Either way I'll have a great time!"

Claire initially expected playing a member of the Mennonite community would be "empowering" because she didn't have to be too concerned about her appearance, but ultimately she and her castmates couldn't wait for filming to end so they could glam up again.

Speaking on "The Graham Norton Show", she said, "We had no hair and make-up at all and wore polyester dresses so what got us through filming was the thought of a party at the end when we could wear make-up and shave our legs. I thought not worrying about shaving would be a real moment of empowerment but actually it was horrible and reminded me of puberty!"

Claire recently returned to "The Crown" for a cameo appearance, and she admitted she was delighted to play the young Queen Elizabeth again. She said, "I went back and did it again because it is a lovely thing to do and I really love Imelda [Staunton], I think she is amazing."

Watch the full interview with Claire on "The Graham Norton Show" on BBC One on Friday, January 27, 2023 at 10.40 P.M. and it's also available on BBC iPlayer.
