Anne Hathaway Talks About Becoming Jane

Anne Hathaway Talks About Becoming Jane

If you’ve been eagerly awaiting the opening of Jane Austen’s “Becoming Jane,” today’s you’re lucky day. It’s opening all around the country, and Anne Hathaway is telling of how she landed the role.

Apparently her chocolate lab, a hotel slipper, and lack of sleep were the key ingredients which led to the Princess Diaries babe getting the lead role in the film.

She told press, “The night before the second audition, my dog decided to eat the hotel slipper, so she was up the whole night vomiting. I slept maybe an hour.” And her disheveled appearance gave her credibility.

“When I arrived at the interview, I was tired and wasn’t in a very good mood. I guess Julian (Director Julian Jarrold) realized that I wasn’t the bright, happy, smiley, untroubled girl from The Princess Diaries. He offered me the role after that.”

It just goes to show that the most unlikely conditions can lead to greatness. Check her out today and decide for yourself if she’s more than just a “Princess.”

Hathaway: Her Highbrow Image Off-Base

Anne Hathaway has plenty to say about men straight, gay or celibate.

The 24-year-old actress, who plays writer Jane Austen in the movie "Becoming Jane," told Newsweek for its latest issue, now on newsstands, that she and her boyfriend, real estate developer Raffaello Follieri, "worship each other. We were desperately in love the first year, then we became each other's best friends."

She also showed an appreciation for Colin Firth, who had a steamy scene in a film version of Austen's "Pride and Prejudice."

"That was a lovely bit they added. It's porno for tome-reading, tea-drinking girls," Hathaway said, referring to what she called a common but mistaken impression of herself.

Hathaway said "about 95 percent of my friends are gay men," as is her brother. But she ducked a question about whether that complicated things because Follieri works with the Roman Catholic Church, which does not sanction gay sexual relationships.

"I'd rather not discuss criticism of the Catholic Church," she said. "They've done a lot of great work throughout the world."

Hathaway's screen credits also include "The Devil Wears Prada" and "The Princess Diaries" movies.
