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.

“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.”
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.

11Anne Hathaway’s Massive NSFW Wardrobe Malfunction Happened and She Used It to Promote ‘Les Miserables’
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.

Last night was the New York premiere of Les Miserables, you guys! You know what that means? It means a few things. For one, it means that it’s only going to be a couple of weeks before we get to see the movie. And for two, it means that Anne Hathaway wore another awful dress.
This is bad, right? It’s not as bad as the last one, but it’s still not great. And if you don’t see my issue, that’s fine, I understand. But let me show you the back of the dress:
What’s even going on there? It looks like a sad chubby cape, which I’m guessing is in fashion now. Whatevs.
But hey, I bet you’re wondering about that vulva, huh? Here’s what happened: Anne Hathaway showed her vulva. She apparently missed the memo about being careful how you work your legs when you’re wearing a dress with a slit and no panties, and when she was stepping out of the car, it happened. The world saw a little bit of her junk.
Here, let me show you.

In case you were caught unawares, this is Anne’s dress for the world premiere of ‘Les Miserables’, and it’s totally a hit. I’m not even going to give you guys the standard “Love It or Leave It” option on this one, because if you don’t love it, and, in fact, want to leave it, then you, my friend, are a soulless, eyeless bastard. And if you’re eyeless, what the hell are you doing on Evil Beet Gossip anyway? The pictures are generally the main reason for being here—you have no eyes. Try to explain that one away, why don’t you?
