THR's Women in Entertainment 2012: Power 100
It's been a huge year for London-based Broccoli, 52, who presided over production of the 23rd James Bond film, Skyfall, which had grossed $797 million worldwide as of Nov. 28, making it the most successful 007 flick of all time (not accounting for inflation). Bond is a family business for Broccoli, whose father, Albert, was the longtime producer of the spy thrillers. She now co-produces the films with her half-brother, Michael G. Wilson.
When I leave work each day, I can't wait to: Go to sleep. When you're based in London, you get up early and are shooting all day, and then L.A. starts phoning you.
Favorite way to unwind on the weekend: Reading the Sunday papers with a big pot of coffee.
Most surprising song on my iPod: Adele, but is that surprising?
Proudest moment this year: On the 50th anniversary [of the release of the first Bond movie] on Oct. 5, we did a charity auction in London at Sotheby's and raised a couple million dollars for UNICEF and a couple of other charities.
Totally starstruck around: People in public service.
What I'd tell my 22-year-old self about working in Hollywood: "Don't be ruled by fear."
Best advice I've gotten: From my father: "Don't let temporary people make permanent decisions."
Top three shows on my DVR: Homeland, Breaking Bad and Meet the Press.
