Ok, look. I need to take a minute to publicly apologize for that time that I said it was weird when Anne Hathaway said that it would be embarrassing if she didn’t get nominated for an Oscar for her work in Les Miserables. I finally saw the movie yesterday, and she deserves ALL the Oscars. Give them all to her. She was that good. I would be perfectly fine if she won the all of the awards for the rest of her whole life and for a good few years after her death. I can’t even put into words how good she was, but I keep on trying because she was THAT good.
So basically, no matter what she says or how she acts or how many times she “accidentally” shows off her ‘gina, I’m rooting for her all the way. Even after reading this interview, which I really don’t think can be described in any other terms than “whatever”:
On her image: “I’m not Rihanna. I’m not cool. When people come up to me in the street, they often want a hug not a photo, and they want that because they like my work. For a long time it was me and her [her manager] against the world. I was seen as this bizarre-world good-girl cartoon that I in no way identified with – very vanilla, very sweet, very accessible and not interesting. I had no grit, no sex appeal.”
On being 30: “It doesn’t help that the new crop of girls is so gorgeous, and so 22 years old. But I’m excited about it.”
On her new husband: “He walks into a room, and I light up. I can’t help it. A few days into it [filming Les Misérables] I said ‘I’m having too much fun, I just want to play with you and I need to be really sad right now. I knew from the second I met him that he was the love of my life.”
The stuff about her husband was sweet, but all the stuff about Rihanna and everybody … it’s just like talking to a person who just says all this stuff, and you don’t even really know what they’re talking about because you just don’t care enough to listen. They don’t make you angry or happy, they don’t make you laugh. They’re just saying words. I feel like Anne here has been just saying words a lot lately.
But hey, did you see Les Mis yet? Because she was unbelievable.
