This week’s Hollywood Reporter features an “Actress Roundtable”, which includes Naomi Watts, Helen Hunt, Sally Field, Rachel Weisz, Marion Cottilard, Amy Adams and of course, Anne Hathaway. The actresses sat down with the Hollywood Reporter, and talked about what it was like working in Hollywood, and more.
Here’s some of what Anne had to say, via Celebitchy:
Anne’s biggest fear: “I always think I’m terrible. So it’s always a relief when I find out that I wasn’t. I’ve had roles where I realized that I was in way over my head — and that is my biggest fear. My biggest fear is overreaching. I have been in situations where I felt swamped, and it’s turned out really well; and I’ve had other situations where I’ve had to walk off the film after five minutes because I realized I was in way over my head.
Walking out of her films: “Yeah. I’ve had a couple of films that I just can’t watch. The experience that I’m thinking of — and I will not say which one — I tried to get out of it because I just knew from a technical standpoint I wasn’t going to have enough time to prep and I just talked myself into it. It was just too good of an opportunity to pass up and I thought, “I can get there, I can do this.” And when you don’t feel that you got there, it’s always going to just gnaw at you.”
On hosting the Oscars: “Oh, scars. I went into it with a lot of trust and a lot of hope, and I had a blast doing it. And I realized afterwards, I played to the house; it’s a 3,500-seat theater, so I was just shooting energy to the back of it and it was like a party! It was great! And I think it looked slightly manic and “hyper-cheerleadery” onscreen. But I have no regrets about doing it. Oh God, no [I didn’t watch a tape]! Whether or not it was an actual failure, it was perceived as a massive failure.”
Annie wants babies: “I really want to have a baby, and my husband and I are like, ‘Where are we gonna live?’”
From the sounds of it Anne will definitely be getting herself knocked up soon. Sources tell US Weekly that she’s very eager to be a momma, and that it will be happening soon. After ‘Les Miserables’ comes out on Christmas, she should be able to relax a bit!
