Anne Hathaway’s War

by | 7th, November 2006

THERE is more than a hint of Liza Minnelli about Anne Hathaway, the American actress and star of haute predictable fashion movie The Devil Wears Prada.

In the movie Hathaway plays a fashion leper from the region of America known among fashionistas as “The Flyover States”.

Minnelli was nominated for her first Academy Award at age twenty-three for the role of Pookie Adams in The Sterile Cuckoo (1969).

Hathaway is 23 and has as much chance of winning an Oscar for her role in The Devil Wears Prada as she does of marrying William Shakespeare.

But, Like Minnelli, whose heavy kohl-eyed look she shares, Hathaway has a certain simpering charm. And in conversation with Hello!, we can forgive her for recalling her meeting with her Italian property developer lover Raffaello Follieri.

Says Hathaway: “Our eyes locked across the table like in the song Some Enchanted Evening.”

And, as that song demands, Hathaway will never let go. Even when she’s in Hollywood she makes time for her man.

And Hollywood is crazy. “Crazy is relative,” says Hathaway. “Some people will get flustered is a nail breaks; some people live in war-zone countries and handle that. I fall somewhere between the two.”

So living in New York and flying first class between photogenic parts of Europe and the States is somewhere between breaking a nail and getting bombed and shot at?

“You have to keep things in perspective,” says Hathaway. You sure do.

“Even if I disagree with the current administration of my country, I live somewhere that has tremendous freedom.”

Not to mention great nails, teeth and hair.
