ANNE HATHAWAY TRAVELS IN STYLE

Posted in Anne Hathaway on August 16, 2011 by fadedblog

Anne Hathaway was a stylish woman on the go as she jetted through LAX Airport in Los Angeles on Monday (August 15).

After spending the day on the set of the upcoming Batman flick, the 28-year-old actress rocked a nautical inspired ensemble as she prepared to board a flight headed to New York City.

Meanwhile, Anne is opening up about playing Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises.

“Oh I love it! I love it,” the big screen beauty tells Access Hollywood. “A lot of questions that I used to get asked were, ‘So, every girl when she grows up wants to be a princess, did you want to be a princess when you grew you?’ And I so wish I’d said what I felt back then, because the truth was, ‘No, I wanted to be Catwoman!’ And now I am… That dream came true, for sure.”

Stepping into a role previously played by Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry, Julie Newmar, Lee Meriwether and Eartha Kitt is not something Anne takes lightly.

“So many great women have worn [the costume] before me,” she explains. “It’s an honor to don the suit.”

The third installment in the latest Batman trilogy hits theaters on July 20, 2012.

ANNE HATHAWAY LAUGHS IN THE FACE OF AGING

Posted in Anne Hathaway on August 9, 2011 by fadedblog

Anne Hathaway looked beautiful in beige as she attended the One Day premiere after party at the Russian Tea Room in New York City on Monday (August 8).

After rocking the red carpet in a dramatic gold and black Alexander McQueen dress, the big screen beauty went understated as she joined co-star Jim Sturgess for an evening of celebration.

Meanwhile, Anne says she’s one Hollywood star who’s wearing her age like a badge of honor.

“I find the passing of time very liberating,” says the actress, who turns 29 in November. “I feel more confident every, well not every single day, but most days I feel better than I did the day before, and that’s a good thing.”

Anne says she feels a sense of freedom about approaching 30.

“For every generation where traditional rules don’t apply, you don’t have to have things figured out by 22 and have four kids by the time you’re 30,” say Anne, who’s single but dating and has no children. “We have a lot more time to figure out who we are.”

Case in point, Miss Hathaway says: Meryl Streep, the 62-year-old Oscar winner.

“We have pioneers that show us there’s no reason to be afraid, and I just think fear (of aging) is something that we perpetuate,” says Anne. “Who needs it?”

One Day, based on the best-selling novel by David Nicholls, follows the romantic journey of two best friends over 20 years.

ANNE HATHAWAY AND JAKE GYLLENHAAL: ‘LOVE & OTHER DRUGS’ PREMIERE PAIR

Posted in Anne Hathaway, Jake Gyllenhaal on December 6, 2010 by fadedblog

Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal showed off their matching perfect smiles as they attended the Australian premiere of Love & Other Drugs at George St Cinemas in Sydney today (December 6).

Earlier in the day, the on-screen lovers attended a press conference where Jake and Anne said sex scenes in their new movie were easier to shoot because they are mutually attracted to each other.

“I think it is easier to work with somebody that you find attractive,” said lady’s man Jake, who is famously dating country bumpkin Taylor Swift. “It’s always easier to work with things that are naturally occurring.”

Anne also admitted it was not hard to get naked with the 29-year-old lothario, who she previously starred with in Brokeback Mountain.

“I actually think that 65 to 75 percent of all my nude scenes have been with you,” she said. “And you are very attractive so I guess I can safely say yes.”

That said, Anne is still was not completely comfortable undressing on camera.

“I’ve done the nudity thing and I can tell you the most scariest part about doing nudity is two things,” the 28-year-old said. “One is having to watch it with an audience, because it becomes a little surreal, and I must say not the most comfortable thing in the world. The second part about doing nudity is talking about it — that’s a little scary, and all the attention it gets.”

“Well, my character in this movie has a lot of sex, so I had to practice a lot,” Gyllenhaal joked. “I am fully devoted to research … there are sacrifices that I have to make and that happened to be one of them.”

ANNE HATHAWAY DOES ‘VOGUE’

After her ex-boyfriend was sentenced to prison in 2008 for bilking investors out of millions in a church property scheme, Anne Hathaway says she is definitely “more wary” of men.

“It takes a minute for me to let my guard down, but once I do and I get to know someone, I’m very open, very trusting. Some might say too trusting,” the big screen beauty says in the November issue of Vogue.

Her new boyfriend is actor Adam Shulman, whom she met through mutual friends. “We hit it off immediately, but it took us a pretty long time to get together,” says Anne. “He thought that I had a boyfriend, and I thought that he had a girlfriend, so I thought that I’d better keep my distance because I didn’t want to be that girl.” After figuring out that neither of them was attached, Anne says, “things sped up a bit—and I think I’ll leave it at that.”
