Anne Hathaway is gorgeous as Gotham Magazine’s January cover girl!
You have great chemistry with Jake Gyllenhaal.
AH: If you don’t have chemistry with Jake Gyllenhaal, then there’s probably something wrong with you, because he is the most insanely charismatic man. All you have to do is listen to him and you’re instantly charmed.
Is there a role you haven’t played that you would like to one day?
AH: Pretty much all of Ibsen. Most Shakespeare. Most of the roles I’d love to play are in the theater. In terms of my career, I would like to kill an alien at some point. I would like to drive a spaceship and maybe be a spy. I’d like to kick a little ass.
AH: Laura Linney is one of my favorite actresses. Sometimes when I am trying to remind myself what good acting looks like, I turn to her performances. Oh, and Meryl Streep, obviously, and Sigourney Weaver. Cate Blanchett never ceases to amaze. Marion Cotillard is a new one for me. I’m just in awe of what that woman does. Did you see Inception? I mean, all of that talent and all that emotion… she’s just absolutely stunning. I am so lucky—there are a lot of great women to learn from.
If you could change something about yourself, what would it be?
AH: I’d love to increase my ability to go with the flow. I can be a worrier.
What is something most people don’t know about you?
AH: I like to ride horses—it is pure joy. I can’t tolerate spicy food—I have a weak stomach. Oh, I am a terrible driver. Like, absolutely horrible. Like, fear the road if I’m on it.
Any guilty pleasures?
AH: Watching adolescent comedies—the gross ones starring teenage boys. When I’m really tired I love to watch that particular kind of fun and raunchy humor, like Superbad. Another guilty pleasure is furniture design magazines. They’re like porn for me.
