Bring on the beauty sleep! There’s no denying that Jodie Comer looks perpetually well-rested, insanely glowy and all-around hydrated. And now, she’s sharing her skin secret: The Exceptional Chronobiology Sleep Mask from Noble Panacea.
The 28-year-old actress swears by the $310 overnight treatment to give her skin a pick-me-up when she hits the sheets. The newly released product may be a splurge, but take it from Comer — the mask, and the brand, are worth the hype.
“The brand is so forward thinking and it’s amazing to think where they could lead,” the Killing Eve star exclusively told Us Weekly, noting that she is “so excited” about her collaboration with the luxe line. “Beauty is more than aesthetics. There is so much science and research that has gone into the making of Noble Panacea products.”
There might be three sides to every story in Ridley Scott’s The Last Duel, but there’s only one truth.
This was crucial to the woman at the center of the tale, Jodie Comer. The Killing Eve star joined executive editor Clarissa Cruz on the latest episode of EW’s The Awardist podcast to talk about her powerful performance in the film and why, despite unraveling the tale from multiple angles, “there is ultimately one truth.”
“The story’s told from three perspectives, which I thought was quite a dangerous way to tell a story,” says Comer. The film, written by her costars, Oscar-winners Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, as well Oscar-nominated screenwriter Nicole Holofcener, is based on the true story of Marguerite de Carrouges (Comer), who accused her husband’s friend-turned-enemy Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver) of raping her in the late 14th century. Le Gris denied the accusation but accepted Jean de Carrouges’ challenge to a duel, leading to what would be the last sanctioned fight to the death in French history.
“Trial by combat.“ That is Tyrian Lannister’s request when he is accused of a horrible crime in “Game of Thrones.” This was a realistic way of resolving legal disputes centuries ago, even though that is no longer the way things are done. We have laws and due process.
But at the tail end of the 14th century, one specific example of trial by combat took place as the last of its kind before being outlawed throughout the whole of France. This is the backdrop for Ridley Scott’s most recent film, “The Last Duel.”
The film stars Matt Damon as Jean de Carouges, a French nobleman known for his warmongering and battlefield prowess. The film centers on his challenge to battle Jaques Le Gris (Adam Driver) whom he accuses of raping his wife, who is played by British actress Jodie Comer.
Remember the 2020 ritual when people would stop to clap in united symbolic support of healthcare heroes during the pandemic? You may want to give Sarah (Killing Eve’s brilliant Jodie Comer) a standing ovation if you can bear to watch Help, a harrowing drama reliving the pandemic’s first wave as seen from within an ill-equipped and understaffed British nursing home.
The movie by Jack Thorne (His Dark Materials, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) clocks in at a little more than 90 minutes, and takes its time establishing how Sarah finds her calling as a care worker. She bonds with residents including Tony (Line of Duty’s Stephen Graham), who has early onset dementia and at 47 is one of the younger people at the Bright Sky care home who respond to her friendly compassion.
“Jodie gets the chop,” legendary hairstylist – and Vogue’s contributing beauty editor – Sam McKnight declared on Instagram. “The divine Jodie Comer left my kitchen a few inches lighter this evening.” Debuting the ultimate textured cool-girl bob on McKnight’s feed – and later on her own Insta Stories – Comer’s new hairstyle is destined for hair moodboards everywhere.
Neck-grazing, full of choppy layers, and with a semi-curtain bang at the front, Comer’s new hairstyle is the epitome of undone hair. Full of movement, body and character, it effortlessly frames her face, without looking too “done”. Perfect for the low-key yet classic beauty looks she regularly serves.
McKnight is the king of transformative cuts. The man behind Princess Diana’s iconic cut, many of Kate Moss’s mussed-up hairstyles, and countless runway looks, he knows a thing or two about flattering cuts, and how to style them. And Comer’s new look was casually cut in his kitchen.
McKnight used two of his own products on Comer: Cool Girl Barely There Texture Mist, an ultra lightweight texturiser, which gives grit and body without causing stickiness; and his new product Happy Endings Nourishing Balm, which helps to smooth frizz, rehydrate and give ends a treat.
The Killing Eve star discusses the series’ final season, and working with Matt Damon and Adam Driver in The Last Duel.
The name Jodie Comer has been synonymous with Villanelle, the alluringly chic assassin who stars opposite Sandra Oh in the hit BBC America series Killing Eve, for the past three years. She strikes a much more serious tone in her performance opposite Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Adam Driver in The Last Duel, Ridley Scott’s historical epic about a knight (Damon) who challenges a squire (Driver) to a duel to the death after his wife (Comer) accuses the squire of raping her. For W’s Best Performances issue, Comer reflects on starring with the longtime A-list pals Damon and Affleck, and reveals how she really feels about Villanelle’s beloved costumes.
Joaquin Phoenix remains aboard the Apple movie project.
Jodie Comer’s reteaming with Ridley Scott will have to wait.
The actress, who is currently on the awards circuit for her work in Scott’s The Last Duel, has dropped out of Kitbag, the filmmaker’s epic drama centered on French military leader Napoleon Bonaparte, which is set up at Apple, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Comer was to have played Josephine opposite Joaquin Phoenix’s Bonaparte in a story that is said to track the Frenchman’s rise on the battlefield and in politics, while focusing on the love story between the two.
“Unfortunately, due to COVID and changes of schedule, I don’t think I can make Kitbag work right now due to a scheduling conflict,” the actress told THR’s Scott Feinberg on his Awards Chatter podcast. She wasn’t thrilled about the development, calling it “rubbish.”
The feature is to start shooting in Europe later in January. Comer is due to begin rehearsals for her first West End stage production, Prima Facie, in March, for a limited engagement from April to June.
After the publication of this story, it was revealed Vanessa Kirby will take over Comer’s role.
Scott cast Comer opposite Matt Damon and Adam Driver in Last Duel, a medieval France-set drama where the wife of a knight accuses her husband’s friend of rape. The story is told from the perspectives of each of the three central characters. The movie was a box office disappointment, but nonetheless is generating awards buzz, with Comer’s performance as the wife among the elements most widely praised.
Comer’s next screen project to hit will be the fourth (and final) season of AMC’s Killing Eve, which launches Feb. 27.
