We will always love Anne Hathaway even if she doesn’t…
Anne Hathaway just wants to make sure she’s perfect before she’s allowed to like herself too.
Making the weekend rounds of gossip whack and why the world isn’t really very flattering and sometimes very inconvenient comes the interesting revelation that our collective hero, Anne Hathaway was at one point begged by Les Miserable director Tom Hooper to put away the mad idea
of making him lose his mind losing ever more weight.
Reflects Hooper: “To be honest, I thought she was going further than she should, and I tried to discourage her.”
And what did Anne Hathaway think of what Tom had to say about what was probably now really beginning to freak him out:
“Tom didn’t like what I was doing, but he understood why I was doing it. No one liked what I was doing. By the end, people were hugging me, and they would get emotional because I felt so frail.”
Still, the star insists she has no regrets about pushing herself to the brink, especially if it nudges her career forward. (Some say she’s already a lock for an Oscar nomination, though she claims her performance of “I Dreamed a Dream” is just “eh.”) Then again let’s face it who wouldn’t starve themselves if it meant being considered a more legitimate actor, never mind if the performance itself is more legitimate.
Which brings us to the following epiphany:
“I see the sort of work that people like Meryl Streep and Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet can do, and I want to do that level of work so badly.” told Anne recently to the L.A. Times of those Oscar winners.
“But I don’t believe I’m as gifted as them. So the only thing I can control is how hard I work at it — how much do I commit to it? How far will I take it?”
Which is Anne Hathaway’s way of begging you people in Hollywood to sit and take notice and please hurry up and offer her an award or something so she can once again feel good about herself.
