Anne Hathaway Opens Up About Her New Movie 'The Last Thing He Wanted' During Sundance Film Festival

Anne Hathaway steps out in a cool printed look for the premiere of The Last Thing He Wanted during the 2020 Sundance Film Festival at Eccles Center Theatre on Monday night (January 27) in Park City, Utah.

The -year-old actress joined director Dee Rees and co-stars Edi Gathegi, Rosie Perez, and Willem Dafoe on the red carpet.

“I didn’t really focus on the journalism part, although Dee Rees was a great help in that,” Anne shared with Variety about getting into her role as a journalist. “…I really focused more on playing Elena. Very few actors get a map written for them by Joan Didion. And so between Joan’s point of view and Dee’s point of view, there wasn’t a whole lot for me to do except just ground down.”

She adds, “One of my favorite things about Joan Didion is the way she takes us through a fog, and you’re lost and you’re lost, and then there’s a line of poetry that’s written like a scalpel, it’s so sharp. And you can experience that when you’re reading a book, but it might not translate the same into a movie. So I decided, well a fog is a fog. You can be lost in a fog of grief. You can be lost in a fog of depression. What’s going to be the most visceral for the audience? And I decided a fog of anger, and thankfully Dee agreed with me. And so, then it was about figuring out all the reasons why she was pissed off. As it turns out, women in the 1980s had lots to be pissed off about.”

The Last Thing He Wanted will debut on February 21 on Netflix.

FYI: Anne wore a Michael Kors Collection look for the premiere. She also wore Lapima sunglasses earlier in the day.
