Anne Hathaway is covering this month’s issue of Harper’s Bazaar. Inside the magazine, she talks about everything from her new role in the movie Catwoman to hosting the Oscars with James Franco. She even discusses ex-boyfriend, now in prison on money-laundering charges, Raffaello Follieri, and new boyfriend, actor Adam Shulman.
On Franco’s comment that she was a “Tasmanian devil” hosting the Oscars:
“How did I take it? I let James know that a whirling dervish is a more flattering comparison than a Tasmanian devil. I called him, and we e-mailed a bit. In the grand scheme of things, I got to have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I met great people, wore beautiful clothes. And I got to put on a show. I don’t see a downside. Anyone who disliked my personality probably disliked my personality before the Oscars.”
On the nudity in Love and Other Drugs:
“I don’t get hung up on nudity. To me, it was just an extension of who she was. It was real.”
On her relationship with ex-boyfriend Follieri:
“There’s something very addictive about people pleasing. It’s a thought pattern and a habit that feels really, really good until it becomes desperate. It’s one of the reasons that relationship ended. I wasn’t able to grow or foster anything. I think a lot of girls have that story. It’s a big moment when you step away from that and say, ‘I’m going to be exactly who I am. And I’m going to be brave enough to only be with someone who wants me the way I am.’”
On preparing for her role as Catwoman by taking dance lessons, stunt training and working out 5 days a week:
“I’ve always thought that skinny was the goal, but with this job I also have to be strong.”
She is lovely! That’s all there is to it. I insist you read the rest of this article HERE. I was not a huge fan of Anne’s job hosting the Oscars, but reading this reminds me of why I love her so much as an actress.
