Anne Hathaway, otherwise known as She Who Was “Fucked Up By Fame”, has got some new movies to promote after taking a somewhat lengthy hiatus from the talk show junkets, so she decided to pop into Spike’s new Tonight Show spinoff, Lip Sync Battle. While there, she performed ‘Wrecking Ball’ like only she could: awkwardly. Extremely awkwardly.
Sure, Anne Hathaway needs to take like, 500 seats, but it was only a matter of time before she started her “comeback” after giving us a break from her for a year or so. But look, this whole Hollywood thing is a two-way street. We may not be able to stand her, but Anne struggles with fame, too – so much so that it really “fucked [her] up” for a long time, apparently.
“This fame thing? F*cked me up for a really long time. I didn’t know how to do it; I didn’t know how to engage with it; it stressed me out. And people would say, “You just have to be yourself,” and I was like, “But I don’t know who that is yet!””
“I’ve realised that don’t need validation from anybody. At all. I’m not sitting here now worrying, “What do you think of me?” With all due respect, you seem like a lovely lady, but I don’t need you, or anyone else, to like me. And that’s so liberating. It’s a big reveal, man.”
La-di-da! Isn’t it nice not to give a shit, Anne? Make them millions and screw the haters! Besides, you’re not the MOST annoying celebrity out there by a longshot. Do your thing. My only issue is that methinks she doth protest too much. All she talks about lately (or so it seems) is how she doesn’t care if people like her or not. If you didn’t care, you wouldn’t need to keep talking about how much you don’t care, because it sorta looks like you do.
In any case, how beautiful does she look in this shoot?
You may know Jenny Lewis from her work with Rilo Kiley, or her solo albums. You may not know Jenny Lewis at all, too – that’s possible. But she’s ready to put out some new solo material and she called on some big names to help her promote her new single, ‘Just One of the Guys’. Enter Kristen Stewart and Anne Hathaway, who dressed up as dudes for the occasion. Enjoy!
Jenny Lewis’ new album, The Voyager, will be out later this month.
Anne Hathaway went away for a long while because she knew we all can’t stand her and wanted to give us a break. Now she’s back, and while this was a chance for her to get back on good terms with the world and not be so annoying, she failed epically when she and husband Adam Shulman decided to take a page from Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield‘s book and punk the paparazzi with a charitable message.
Walking around New York this week, Anne and Adam held up cardboard signs with three websites listed to charities/causes they care about and wishing everyone a Happy 4th of July. They did at least give credit to Emma and Andrew, but the fact that she even decided to do this is just so… Anne. And so obnoxious. I appreciate getting the good message out, which is the only thing I give her vague credit about – there’s never a bad time to spread the word about causes you really care about. But it just seems so contrived and try-hard and… predictable. Copying off of something someone else did that we all found endearing so that she could try and be endearing as well is Anne Hathway’s M.O. and the reason she got such a bad rep in the first place.
You know you’ve made it in Hollywood when Madame Tussauds gives you your own wax figure. That’s exactly what’s happened with Anne Hathaway, whose statue was unveiled this weekend at the museum. Apparently it took 20 artists three months to create at a cost of $300,000. Whaaaat?
I will say, this one looks mighty impressive. If you took a photo from far enough away, you probably couldn’t tell the wax figure wasn’t the real Anne. Not sure if that counts as successful or not, but we’ll go with yes. Lookin’ good!
Did anyone know that Rachel Zoe was Anne Hathaway‘s stylist for 10 years? (Did anyone care?) Until recently, the two shared a happy stylist/stylee relationship and all was well with the world – well, if you don’t consider everything either of them have ever worn a total disaster, which I do. Well, now they’re dunzo, but at least there’s “no bad blood” between them, eh?
“There is no bad blood between Anne and Rachel, and in fact the door is always open for them to work [together] again,” an insider explains to Us. “It’s just that Anne is looking to try new things, and she loves Penny’s work. It’s nothing dramatic.”
If you’re wondering who Penny is, it’s Penny Lovell, some other stylist who Anne is working with instead. Yeah, cos I’m sure Rachel Zoe was just like, “Cool, Anne! Loved working with you this past decade – way to sell me out for another stylist! Best wishes!” but who knows, maybe that did happen.
Here’s hoping this Penny woman has slightly better taste, though I suppose Anne would need to get better taste, as well.
