Anne Hathaway is having a bright 2021, or at least she is trying to, and her smile is lighting the up the world of her 19.3 million fans on Instagram, especially since her poses are all for a new movie.
But she is nothing if polite and making sure that the new movie promos and posts do not end up offending anyone especially since it’s a comedy about the lockdown.
Clearly, the pandemic has made the world a sourer place, and we all need Anne “Annie” Hathaway to lighten and brighten it up.
Not Sorry For Voting, Or Masks
Trust Anne Hathaway to look at Dr. Seuss for inspiration when it comes to urging her fans to vote. In November last year, Hathaway took to inspiring people to vote with this message, “Took a peaceful walk through an ancient grove yesterday and heard the Lorax, “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.””
Clearly, Anne cares, and not just about voting, about masks too. Only her way of urging people to wear one is more Disney than anything, even if it’s not Pg-13!
Anne Apologized For Witches’ Faux Pas
Anne Hathaway’s portrayal of a witch in the 2020 movie, “Witches” from the Roald Dahl book, and a remake of the older movie, ended up hurting a whole community of people with limb differences. In the movie, Hathaway’s character, the Grand High Witch seems to have ectrodactyly, a limb difference also called “split hand” and has sparked a whole hashtag trend of #notawitch…
Hathaway was quick to apologize, saying, “As someone who really believes in inclusivity and really, really detests cruelty, I owe you all an apology for the pain caused. I am sorry. I did not connect limb difference with the GHW when the look of the character was brought to me; if I had, I assure you this never would have happened.”
Here’s her post…
Apologized In Advance, For The Movie
Anne Hathaway’s next is with Chiwetel Ejiofor, and it’s a comedy titled “Locked Down” in which a couple decided to rob Harrods, London of one big, shiny diamond.
Clearly, Hathaway is a bit sensitive about how people may reach to a movie about a lockdown, during a lockdown, especially since it’s a comedy. So she apologized for it, beforehand, saying, “It feels strange to be promoting a movie – a comedy no less – during such unprecedented times…please know I am reeling from the events of the last week just as you are. Just like you, I am trying to process what happened on top trying to find some kind of firm emotional footing in the quicksand of this pandemic…”
Here’s the trailer…
Fans Say She’s Shinier Than Premium Aluminum Foil
Anne is a veritable delight, even though she just confessed that she basically hates her own first name, Anne and would much rather be called “Annie”. Most of the cast and crew of her movies know it and call her anything but Anne, because she says it reeks more of a reprimand.
And then she dressed up in the most fantastic of metallic dresses and calls it “Fashion, but make it fashion” so fans accordingly decided to reply “Anne but make it Annie”. Other felt she was shiny, “shinier than premium aluminum foil”.
High compliment, or what!
