Hollywood’s leading lady is Paula Wagner – the producer who runs Tom Cruise’s new studio


Paula Wagner - a self-professed romantic who enjoys old films - is Tom Cruise's partner in the United Artists film studio. But underneath the Midwestern charm lies a serious movie player.

Wagner is so frequently described as the most powerful woman in Hollywood that it is hard not to be utterly terrified at the prospect of meeting her. It is a label that carries with it a certain fearsome cachet, so that one immediately imagines her as a horrifying, ball-busting harpy with shoulder pads the size of Miami Beach and a lethal, Machiavellian ego. If she were a movie actress, you would probably cast her as Katharine Parker, the icily ruthless businesswoman in Working Girl who thinks scruples are a Russian currency.
