Anne Hathaway covers Harper’s Bazaar February 2013 on which she appears to be having a Photoshop stroke. She’s a pretty girl but that’s an unflattering cover photo of her face. Right? Inside the issue, the 30-year-old says you’ve got it all wrong if you think she’s a ‘vanilla’ girl with no sex appeal because she’s wearing your grandmother’s support garments and good girls don’t wear corsets.
- On her image: ‘I’m not Rihanna. I’m not cool. When people come up to me in the street, they often want a hug not a photo, and they want that because they like my work. For a long time it was me and [my manager] against the world. I was seen as this bizarre-world good-girl cartoon that I in no way identified with… very vanilla, very sweet, very accessible and not interesting. I had no grit, no sex appeal.’
- On turning 30 as a woman in Hollywood which is like turning 60 as a guy: ‘It doesn’t help that the new crop of girls is so gorgeous, and so 22 years old. But I’m excited about it.’
- On how her husband nearly ruined Les Mis because Hathaway found it hard to fake sad: ‘He walks into a room, and I light up. I can’t help it’ she said. ‘A few days into it [filming Les Misérables] I said ‘I’m having too much fun, I just want to play with you and I need to be really sad right now.’ I knew from the second I met him that he was the love of my life.’
