My list of favorite female actors is growing. At the top of this list is Anne Hathaway. For me, she is blooming into such an interesting and engaging actress whose talent comes across as effortless and genuine. I began to pay attention to her when I first watched Devil Wears Prada. Acting opposite Meryl Streep, Hathaway held her own and has made this movie a guilty pleasure. No matter when this movie airs on television, I have to watch it. The chemistry between actors and vulnerability she brings to the character is wonderful to watch.
Most recently, I watched her in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, as the White Queen. Her portrayal of the White Queen was so wonderful to watch and left a smile on my face. I was really happy to see Anne Hathaway in an unexpected role and in a movie directed by my favorite, Tim Burton. Since thing, I have been more interested to see what Hathaway has coming up on her resume.
Currently, Love and Other Drugs is in post-production, according to www.imdb.com and is a romantic comedy. She will be starring opposite Jake Gyllenhaal as the object of his affection. The movie is based on the memoir by Jamie Reidy’s, “Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman.” This will be an interesting role for Hathaway since she has never been in a movie as the “it” girl. With a release date of November 24, 2010, it may have to be a movie I drag my husband to.
Although you will not see Hathaway, you will hear her in the upcoming animated film, Rio. She will lend her voice to the character of Jewel, who is supposed to be a fierce and independent macaw. Jesse Eisenberg and Leslie Mann also contribute their voices to the film. The release date is 2011.
Currently filming is One Day, a romantic comedy that Hathaway will be acting in directed by Lone Scherfig. The movie is based on the novel and screenplay by David Nicholls about Dexter and Emma (Hathaway) who meet in during graduation and reunite one day for the next 20 years. Dexter will be played by actor Jim Sturgess (Across the Universe).
Anne Hathway is an actress that lights up the screen and makes me excited. I, for one, am eager to know what she is starring in next, what project is she undertaking and how is she challenging her career. She is one of the few actresses that challenges herself and surprises fans along the way.
