“It’s hugely flattering but nothing is real yet, so it’s lovely that people are talking about it. So I’m of two minds, which is one, ‘Oh my gosh could you imagine if it came true?’ and two, ‘Can you imagine how embarrassing it’ll be if it doesn’t happen, if I don’t get nominated?’ So I’m just trying to keep my feet on the ground at the moment.”
- Anne Hathaway talks about how everyone thinks she’s going to get an Oscar, or at least an Oscar nomination, for her work as Fantine in Les Miserables.
I don’t know, you guys. While there’s certainly been a whole lot of talk about Anne’s Oscar-worthy performance, and while I usually love this lady, something about this rubs me the wrong way. Is that wrong? It’s the whole part about how embarrassing it will be if she doesn’t get nominated, it just seems kind of braggy to me. I realize she said the other stuff too, about “what if it came true,” but it still makes me feel funny.
Also, is there any set criteria for Best Supporting Actress nomination? Because while she’s important to the story and while she has one of the most famous songs from the show, Fantine really isn’t that big of a character. Just wondering. Ugh.
I’m a fan of underwear only because it keeps me warm.
—What Amanda said in response to a TMZ cameraman’s question on what she thought about ‘Les Miserables’ co-star Anne Hathaway’s upskirt photo. Amanda more or less told us why she, herself, wears underwear, and why her reason might just be Anne‘s reason because duh, how uncomfortable to be asked about another woman’s vaginal habits. You wouldn’t make any sense, either.
I know some of you already saw the photo when Emily ran it the other day, but honestly, she kind of used it for promo purposes. Whiz BANG.
Here’s what Anne had to say about the upskirt in a recent interview with Matt Lauer:
“They saw everything. I may as well have lifted up my skirt for them. … It was obviously an unfortunate incident. It kind of made me sad on two accounts. One was that I was very sad that we live in an age when someone takes a picture of another person in a vulnerable moment and rather than delete it, and do the decent thing, sells it. And I’m sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies sexuality of unwilling participants, which brings us back to Les Mis, that’s what my character is, she is someone who is forced to sell sex to benefit her child because she has nothing and there’s no social safety net.”
Which, on one hand, I get. I really do. It was a “vulnerable” moment and all that, and it sucks that she was objectified in such a lewd way, but on the other hand, it’s like … I don’t even know. No, wait, I do know—It’s like WEAR A G-DDAMN PAIR OF PANTIES, ANNE HATHAWAY. What do you expect? Lots of people are perverts, and when those people see an opportunity, they’re going to take it. It doesn’t make it right by any means, but it doesn’t mean it won’t happen, either. If you’re all kinds of concerned that it’s going to happen—and if you don’t wear panties, and people photograph you on the regular, it’s almost inevitable—then the proper precautions should be taken. If, of course, precaution is a thing you’re going for.
Jump in to see Anne’s Hathaway. You know, again.
