Anne Hathaway Works Her Promotional Style in NYC
Among all the shows she appeared on over the past couple days, Anne Hathaway made a brief pit stop at ABC’s “Popcorn With Peter Travers” and revealed her somewhat implicit bias against female directors. Here’s more:
When asked by host Peter Travers on Tuesday if there was any movie she learned the most from, she said 2011’s “One Day” opposite Jim Sturgess. In that film, she admits, she didn’t give all she could to director Lone Scherfig and she believes it’s because she was a woman.
“I really regret not trusting her more easily,” she said. “And I am to this day scared that the reason I didn’t trust her the way I trust some of the other directors I work with is because she’s a woman.”
“I’m so scared that I treated her with internalized misogyny,” she continued about the film and its director. “I’m scared that I didn’t give her everything that she needed or … I was resisting her on some level. It’s something that I’ve thought a lot about in terms of when I get scripts to be directed by women.” Source
Was Anne’s “internalized misogyny” or a massive “internalized” inferiority complex? I guess that’s up for debate, but the fact that Anne admits to having this flaw is a big step for someone like her. Here’s a clip of the interview:
And on a funnier note, here’s Anne singing a Google translated version of one of Weeknd’s songs during her recent appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s show:
