Why You Need To Know About: Analeigh Tipton

This month she stars as Scarlett Johansson’s room-mate in Lucy, a “high-action, high-stakes” thriller about a girl who gains 100 per cent of her brain’s functionality, rather than the 10 per cent with which we mere mortals usually make do. “It was one of my bucket-list dreams,” says Tipton of working with the film’s director Luc Besson. “I was Leeloo from The Fifth Element for Halloween one year.”

Check her Instagram (@Analeighctipton) if you like pictures of vintage air conditioners. “I use Instagram for things I really find beautiful versus what I think is going to be cool,” she admits, we think with no pun intended. Do not check her Instagram for self-portraits in the bathroom mirror: “I kind of have some trouble with selfies.” Luckily there are plenty of others willing to do the honours — see above.
