British Woman Who Grew Up Without a TV Becomes an Oscar-Winning Mother in Hollywood


1. A British mother has become Hollywood's Oscar queen.

Costume designer Jenny Bevan, 69, has been dressing celebrities all her life. Until now, it has been her own clothes that have made her shine in the spotlight.

2. Jenny said.

"My whole career has been about clothes, but I'm not interested in fashion. What I want to do with clothes is to tell a story with them. That's what clothing design is all about. I am not a little girl who is always dressing her dolls. My parents were musicians, so we didn't have a lot of money, but our house was very artistic, and in the 1950s kids didn't have TV, so they were drawing pictures and making things out of cardboard boxes.

My parents encouraged me and my sister to be creative and allowed us to make a mess and even paint on the walls of our house in Kensington, west London. After school, I studied at Central Saint Martins College of Art, where I learned how to draw patterns and cut fabrics. At that time, my main interest was not in costumes, but in design. Thanks to my childhood friend Nick Young, I was able to participate in Merchant Ivory's early film productions without payment."

3. "Mad Max" was the opportunity she had always wanted: ......

Jenny told Charlize Theron that she "felt really comfortable" when she tried out for Mad Max: Death Road of Rage in 2015. I only speak English and I'm shy. I'm going to take credit for this, bitch. Mad Max changed my career. It opened up a whole new world for me, completely different from period dramas, and I won a BAFTA for it in 2016, and I wore an M&S leather jacket, scarf, boots and jeans to accept the award."
