Anne Hathaway: I am Not a Prude

Anne Hathaway: I am Not a Prude

Anne Hathaway graces the August 2007 pages of Marie Claire magazine.

On proudly proclaiming she’s not a prude: “I love Peaches. When people are all, ‘Do you think you have a squeaky-clean image?’ I’m like, ‘Could a squeaky-clean girl know all the lyrics to ‘Teaches of Peaches’? I mean, my favorite song is called ‘F*** the Pain Away.’”

On being comfortable naked in front of the camera: “I don’t actively search for [movies] that I can get naked in. It’s not the most fun requirement of the job, but nor is it something that I would ever not do a job of because of. It is what it is. Some people choose not to do it on moral grounds; I think that’s a shoddy argument. I turned down another movie because it was going to show a vagina–not mine, but somebody else’s. And I Didn’t believe that was actually necessary to the story.”

On knowing where she stands: “I’m not a walking one-woman drama show. I’m pretty bad entertainment–I’m not particularly well dressed, and I haven’t graduated from college. I think you should like Natalie Portman a lot more.”

On filming Brokeback Mountain with director Ang Lee: “I had such a cool experience. I Was like, Hells to the yeah. If this is possible once, it is worth striving for the rest of my life–to be part of something that is so beautiful and smart, that is the best this medium can be.”

On magically turning into an awesome actress by age 30: “A lot of actresses start kicking ass between 27 and 30 — Kate Winslet, Rachel Weisz, Cate Blanchett. I’m curious what’ll happen when I turn 29–if all of a sudden I’ll access this hidden power that I have. Wouldn’t it be cool if that happened?”

On bursting into tears the firs time watching Brokeback Mountain: “I didn’t stop [crying] for an hour. And Kirsten Dunst, who was going out with Jake, was like two rows behind me, and [Jake's sister] Maggie Gyllenhaal was right behind me, and we were all crying so hard; my boyfriend offered Maggie his handkerchief, and she was sharing it with Kirsten. And I’m thinking, That’s my boyfriends–can I have my Kleenex that you b*****es are using?”

    The ****** movie was Knocked Up, if anyone cares.

    Davidson Says:

    I think people mistake prude for being classy. If she had more confidence she wouldn’t feel the need to justify herself. If anyone has a problem with the idea of sex, it’s those that believe the only legitimate form of expression is by framing it as “filthy” or “nasty,” which is the vast majority of Americans (the legacy of Puritanism).

    She sound like she’s trying too hard.

    Like her but Says:

    I like her a lot, but I also feel like she’s trying too hard to prove to people that she isn’t all that innocent. I agree with Davidson. I think she’s confused the term classy for prude. She’s definitely classy, and that doesn’t make her any less sexy. I hope she realizes that and that she’ll gain enough confidence in herself.

    I’ve always like Anne, but after reading this it seems a little weird I dont know…I hope what she said about Kirsten Dunst and Maggie was a joke cause that was a bit harsh. And I do think the interview comes off a little like she’s trying too hard. Like, look at me! i’m a bad ass *****! i’m not a prude, i actually say *****. I dont know, WEIRD!

    Anne Hathaway has more class and talent than half of Hollywood put together. Lovely underrated performance in Brokeback Mountain, I hope she works with Ang lee again.

    annina Says:

    Oh God. Anne, we know you have grown up so stop trying so hard to prove that you have.
    I must say I used to really like Anne but after reading this, my opinion has changed about her.
    Maybe its just that I get annoyed by people who try too hard, I dunno.
    Shes all like ‘Hell Yeah, I know all the f*****g words to “f*** the pain away” and i’m a bad ass, you b****’
    Shes actually proved that shes more imature than ever by saying all of that stuff, If you know what I mean.

    brad Says:

    I like Anne, she is an actress I will go to see. I avoid some movies if certain actresses are in them, but Anne is a draw. Yeah, Anne needs to know that classy IS sexy, she has nothing to prove. You rock, Anne!

    ks Says:

    Why do some actors feel like they have to use bad languages to change their image? I used to respect her, but now I have a different feeling.

    dee Says:

    I agree with everyone else, I was cringing while reading this. She is trying WAY too hard. =/

    Miss Windjammer Says:

    Um, yeah. Not a fan. Reading this interview cements that inkling of dislike I had for her.

    And to turn down “Knocked Up” because some random woman’s snatch was shown is stupid. Granted, I thought it was a gag put in for shock value, but it sounds like she’s probably regretting that decision due to the film’s success. That said, I probably wouldn’t have seen “Knocked Up” if Hathaway was in it.

    I absolutely love Jane Austen, but now I’m certain I won’t see “Becoming Jane.” Anne Hathaway is, I’m sorry, absolutely cringeworthy.

    Jimmie Says:

    I hate it when people try too hard to show that they have something to prove. Cussing doesn’t make you a bad @ss, it cheapens her. I use to like her but not after this interview. I had to cringe.
