Anne Hathaway loves Tilda Swinton, can make fun of her own fashion faux pas, and — since giving up veganism — would gladly split a burger with you. On paper, she possesses nearly every quality we look for in a friend. But, that's not exactly how she's been painted in the media over the past few years. According to the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar, she’d like to "kiss and make up."
Appearing on the cover in Armani Privé, the actress talks to Laura Brown (just another one of our dream pals) about all those side-eye-inducing moments that were once fuel for the Hathahater fire. You know, the 2013 awards season. In the charming tête-à-tête, Anne recalls the Golden Globes where she forgot to thank her own manager of 15 years during her Best Supporting Actress acceptance speech as "one of my most regretted life moments." And, she admits that she only made it worse by later interrupting the Les Misérables cast's Best Motion Picture acceptance speech in order to do so: "It was rude."
Furthermore, the star of the upcoming The Intern also came clean that her memorable Prada Oscar gown — the one that created a certain nipple situation — was far from her favorite fashion moment, nor was it her first choice for the evening. "I didn't have a friggin' dress, which I normally wouldn't care about," she tells HB about the night before the Oscars. "But, I really needed a dress, and everybody hates me, and I just really needed a dress."
We never joined the Hath-hating masses, but we have to admit that Anne's latest publicity is some of the most likable and real that we've seen from the talented, young star in a while. Perhaps absence makes the heart grow fonder. Maybe it's also a little refreshing to see a celebrity shake off her naysayers without undertones of woe-is-me, or overtones of more negativity. Or, maybe it's because she's game to toss on a Margiela rhinestone bustier. Either way, this is one Hathaway we'd gladly invite to lunch. Shake Shack, anyone?
