Well in the case of James Franco, that’s what happened to him when he poked fun at her during an appearance on “The Late Show With David Letterman.”
“I love her, but Anne Hathaway is so energetic, I think the Tasmanian Devil would look stoned standing next to Anne Hathaway,” Franco said back in March.
Hathaway, who hosted this year’s Academy Awards with Franco to less than rave reviews, fired back, correcting Franco on his word choice.
“I let James know that a whirling dervish is a more flattering comparison than a Tasmanian devil. I called him, and we e-mailed a bit,” she reveals to Harper’s Bazaar.
But perhaps there aren’t any hard feelings, as Hathaway felt hosting the awards show was more of a positive experience in just getting to be there.
“In the grand scheme of things, I got to have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” she tells Harper’s. “I met great people, wore beautiful clothes. And I got to put on a show. I don’t see a downside. Anyone who disliked my personality probably disliked my personality before the Oscars.”
Good on Anne for not firing back angrily to her haters. After all, she was the center of attention that night, not to mention all the lovely outfits she got to wear! Stay classy! It really is better to focus on the positive and move on in life.
But in other Anne Hathaway news, she is gearing up to play Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s Batman finale, “The Dark Knight Rises” as well as the summer romance, “One Day”, alongside Jim Sturgess.
