"We're very much looking forward to Christmas this year. The two girls are back, which means there won't be much room in the house for me and Ali, but we love it and all their mates, too – it's just that time of year," Bono said.

The Hewson daughters are currently living in New York.

"They've both finished college now. Eve finished early, which is amazing, as she worked through the summer. Jordan's making her mind up as well about what she wants to do now, too."

Bono expected to  have a chilled out Christmas Day at his Dalkey home. "This year my brother (Norman) and his family are coming over to our house. It's noisy, it's messy, it's fantastic – just everything we love about Christmas."

Starting their celebrations in style, U2 threw a lavish party at H-Cafe in Dublin for staff at their company, Principle Management, where the entertainment included a performance from RTE personality Katherine Lynch.

Bono’s daughter, Eve Hewson said that her dad’s celebrity status can bring out the worst in people and she’s learned how to spot the fakers.

Hewson (21) is currently studying acting at New York City University and says that most of the time she is not recognized. But when people want to become friends with her because of her rock star connection, it’s obvious. She can instantly recognize the people who are only interested in befriending her because of her father’s fame.

She told ‘Flaunt’ magazine, “It’s made it, in some ways, easier to find friends because it brings out certain bad things in people.” She added, “Then you can see easier. Well, you can smell the desperation in people.” Hewson commented about other people, “It’s just like, how you can hang out, if you can tell a good story, if you can make a good laugh.”

Her parents kept her out of the limelight while she was growing up in southside Dublin. She said, “Obviously, every now and then someone would start singing a U2 song at a party, but aside from that, it’s not really about who you are, what you have.” She is Bono’s youngest daughter. She has an older sister, Jordan (23) and two younger brothers, Elijah (14) and John Abraham (11).

The young actress is already heading towards a celebrity status all her own. She has received praise for her performance ‘This Must Be the Place’ in which she plays the surrogate daughter of a depressed rock star, who was played by Sean Penn. However, she says she did not receive much attention while the film was in production. She said, “Nobody really cares about me. There are other famous actors on set that are more fascinating.”

Hewson recently finished filming ‘Blood Ties’, which features many big Hollywood names. Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, James Caan, and Marion Cotillard star in the film.

She says Juliette Lewis and Evan Rachel are her influences and likes that Frances McDormand chooses different, sometimes quirky roles. Hewson said, “I think you have to be very forward about what you want. You have to be confident that you have a vision and that you want to play different sides of yourself. I think the crazier and weirder you are you will be able to get out there."
