Anne Hathaway Tells Harper’s Bazaar She’s No Good Girl Gone Bad: “I’m Not Rihanna. I’m Not Cool!”
Anne Hathaway may play doomed prostitute Fantine in the latest remake of Les Miserables. But, even more tragic, says the actress, is her real-life lack of sex appeal.
In the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, the 30-year-old star admits that her image is a bit boring. “I’m not Rihanna, I’m not cool,” she says. “When people come up to me in the street, they often want a hug not a photo, and they want that because they like my work. For a long time it was me and her [her manager] against the world. I was seen as this bizarre-world good-girl cartoon that I in no way identified with—very vanilla, very sweet, very accessible and not interesting. I had no grit, no sex appeal.”
One person who may disagree is Hathaway’s new husband Adam Shulman, who she fell in love with the minute her eyes landed upon him.”I’m going to marry that man,” she gushed to a friend the moment she met Shulman. “I think he thought I was a little nuts, which I am a bit, but I’m also nice….I knew from the second I met him that he was the love of my life.”
Inside the UK edition of the fashion magazine, Hathaway may not think she’s sexy but she looks smoking hot styled by Bazaar’s new senior contributing editor Leith Clark and photographed by David Slijper. Throughout the eight-page spread, Hathaway models designer threads from Valentino, Louis Vuitton, Alexander McQueen, Swarovski, Bulgari, Ralph Lauren, and Christian Dior.
