I have to admit in the past I have dismissed Anne Hathaway as a bit ‘ditzy’ – associating her with dire movies like The Princess Diaries and The Devil Wears Prada. Rachel Zoe also used to make vacuous comments about dressing “Annie” on her reality show and the association with Ms. Zoe did Ms. Hathaway no favors in my eyes. Well Anne will be relieved to hear that I am slowly falling for her. Having seen her attend premieres, do interviews, and also having seen some clips for the upcoming Les Misérables, I am finding myself enthralled by her charm, sincerity and talent.
This morning I was watching The Today Show while on the elliptical – as you do – it certainly helps 30 minutes fly by. Anne was being interviewed by Matt Lauer (another love of mine) and it was the first I had heard of her recent wardrobe malfunction where her panty-less you-know-what was captured on camera as she left the limo. Matt opened the interview with “we’ve seen a lot of you recently” – guffaw, guffaw. Now yes I agree the question Matt should have asked is ‘Why no panties Anne?’, but Matt didn’t choose that line of questioning. Instead he asked Anne ‘what’s the lesson learned?’ – well surely to wear panties – no? Instead Anne shared her sadness over why someone would photograph her in such a vulnerable position. As she spoke I found myself full of admiration for this beautiful, articulate woman with the best haircut. Even her sensitivity over her dramatic weight loss for the role resonated with me. I think she’d make a great best friend – and I’m willing to forgive her for The Princess Diaries.
Last night she appeared with Jimmy Fallon singing some “Mad Libs” for Christmas Carols – her laughter is infectious:)
Avoiding all photos of the ‘malfunction’ here’s the stunning Tom Ford ensemble she wore with some very bizarre orthopedic knee-brace type shoes. They distracted me from the lack of panties anyway.
I still remember balling my eyes out – in fact sobbing loudly – at the stage version of Les Mis in London – I went to see it twice. I loved it so much I was hesitant about going to see the movie – but now I think I must – just need to remember the box of tissues.
Will you be watching it?
