Maria Sharapova is not sure the part she filmed will end up appearing in the upcoming heist comedy film Ocean’s 8, but says she enjoyed the experience of shooting her brief cameo.
An all-female reboot of the Ocean’s trilogy will be released in June, starring an A-list cast that includes Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson and Rihanna.
Sharapova, as well as Serena Williams are supposed to make cameo appearances in the film.
Speaking at the Shenzhen Open following her opening round win over Mihaela Buzarnescu, Sharapova said of her experience on the Ocean’s 8 set: “It’s (the role) very small, I don’t even know if I’m in it, but I filmed it.
“I think in the end you don’t know if your part will be actually in the movie. It was a really nice invitation. The director was very nice to work with and I was alongside very talented individuals so it just, it’s a different experience, it’s very different from what I do and I enjoy being part of those things.
“I haven’t seen the trailer yet, and I certainly haven’t seen the movie, I’ll see it probably when you see it, so we’ll see if I even made it. But I’m in the credits, so that’s a good start.”
