Anne Hathaway’s husband helps her stay grounded. The Interstellar star, who married jewelry designer Adam Shulman in Big Sur, California in September 2012, reportedly couldn’t wait to get back to see him in Los Angeles after two weeks of travelling around the world to promote the film. A source close to the 32-year-old beauty said: “Adam brings a great balance to her life when things get crazy. He’s her rock.”
The couple are planning to take a few weeks off to go “someplace warm” before Anne starts to prepare for awards season in January, and they are also settling into their new home in Ojai, California after relocating there from New York City. The insider added to Us Weekly magazine: “They’ll still keep the place in Brooklyn and spend most of their time out west. They love it there!”
Anne recently admitted being married completely altered her life and made her feel safe. When asked if being married has changed her, she previously said: “It totally has and I did not expect that. Neither of us did. We were very open with each other and when we were getting married we thought we were just doing it for tradition and we really went in thinking it would be pieces of paper. “But I didn’t know who I was going to be as a married person and there is a centering to it and I was allowing myself to really feel safe in a way that I never let myself feel since I was a child, you know. And I’ve been really blown away at how much life it’s given me.”

Director Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is already a hit at the box office, taking in over $326 million worldwide after just one week in release. Despite the overwhelmingly positive reactions from fans and critics alike, the film has been taking some heat for its approach to the sound, with several fans complaining that many key lines of dialogue are difficult to hear. Questions have been raised about whether it’s the director’s fault, or the theaters, but the filmmaker revealed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that the sound is exactly how he wanted it.
“I’ve always loved films that approach sound in an impressionistic way and that is an unusual approach for a mainstream blockbuster, but I feel it’s the right approach for this experiential film. Many of the filmmakers I’ve admired over the years have used sound in bold and adventurous ways. I don’t agree with the idea that you can only achieve clarity through dialogue. Clarity of story, clarity of emotions – I try to achieve that in a very layered way using all the different things at my disposal – picture and sound.”
He went on to praise theaters for presenting the sound in this unconventional way, exactly how he envisioned it, after visiting theaters such as TCL Chinese Imax Theatre and the Arclight Cinerama Dome in Hollywood and the AMC Loews Lincoln Square in New York. Continue reading…
Shortly after Warner Bros. and DC Comics announced their full superhero release slate last month, we learned that The Dark Knight trilogy director Christopher Nolan is no longer involved with the franchise. His last superhero movie, 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises, featured Catwoman played by Anne Hathaway, who states in a recent interview that she would love the chance to play that role again in a stand alone movie.
Here’s what she had to say, when asked if she would ever consider portraying Selina Kyle one more time: “I would be totally up for doing it. If Chris (Nolan) was involved. For me, the thing that made doing that part particularly fun was that she existed in his Gotham. Without him I don’t think it would be the same thing. But I also wonder about that part. If because she’s a thief, it’s not better to have her be a small part in a larger film. So she can go through and steal aspects of the film. But when the focus is squarely on her, I don’t know if it works as well.”
When asked if she would be up for a small cameo appearance in any of the upcoming DC Comics movies, the actress had this to say. “Oh yeah that’d be fun. I’d definitely love that. I want to play her again. I don’t know – this is just speculation, because I do think about it sometimes – I think she’s got an amazing backstory and it would be great to see her get her own film. But I don’t know – she is someone who… mystery serves her well so I don’t know what a whole film would do. But who knows?”
Anne Hathaway wanted to get to know her Interstellar co-star Matthew McConaughey better, so when his wife Camila Alves asked her to attend a surprise birthday party for the Oscar winner, she jumped at the chance. But when arriving, it was the 31 year-old actress who was surprised the most.
When McConaughey was being honoured with the American Cinematheque Award on Tuesday night, October 21 at L.A.’s Beverly Hilton Hotel, Hathaway paid tribute to him by saying how she became friends with the talented actor while filming the upcoming sci-fi flick.
“I have a story and it’s kind of embarrassing,” she said. “My husband and I drive up. It’s a Sunday. It’s a beautiful day, there are no cars around and we thought, OK, we’re on time. We’re on time for once.” Anne added, “I go, ‘Surprise!’ And he goes, ‘Yeah, you’ve got to come in.’ Matthew turns around and goes, ‘Party was last night.'” McConaughey then told the Les Misérables actress and her hubby to come in for a drink. “Matthew said, ‘Come inside. Let me pour you a glass of wine,'” she recalled, “And then Matthew looks at me, very deeply, and says, ‘Hey, we can be upset about this. We can be mad about this. Or we can go with it. And we can have a great story.'” “And that glass of wine led to the first bottle – I stopped counting after four,” she continued, “And then I went with him to someone’s surprise birthday party that night that I crashed. And you know what? It was a great story and a lot of smiles because of it… You were so good to me and Adam.”
Even though 2013 was a career defining year for Anne Hathaway, mainly for the numerous awards she received for her role in the musical Les Misérables, it seems the more success and critical acclaim she received, the more haters the actress garnered.
While speaking to the ‘Daring Issue’ of November’s Harper’s Bazaar, which she features on the front cover of, Hathaway finally addressed the overwhelming ‘Hathahate’ period and recalled the moment she first read an article titled, “Why does everyone hate Anne Hathaway?” “Punched in the gut, shocked and slapped and embarrassed. Even now I can feel the shame,” she said of her initial reaction. “I was in crisis, now I’d be fine. I really would be. I’d let it roll off my back, but at the time I was still partly Fantine [her character in Les Mis]. I was still identifying with being a victim.”
The 31 year-old actress also discussed her awkward acceptance speech at the 2013 Golden Globes, which she forgot to thank her manager of 15 years, and why she decided to take the microphone when Les Misérables was awarded for the Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy. “While everyone was still getting onstage, I spoke. I should have gone after everyone else. I own that; it was rude. People saw that as grabby, I guess. I don’t know,” she explained. “Even though I’ve had great success, touch wood, it hasn’t been easy. A lot of people have told me, ‘You’re not this and so can’t play that,’ and I can’t tell you the amount of times I’ve been told I’m not sexy,” Hathaway told the mag of her career path. “I just go: ‘I’m a lot of things. Just because I don’t wear my sexiness overtly doesn’t mean that I can’t become that girl for a role. That’s what I do; I become things. Use your imagination, buddy.’ So in terms of not listening to what other people told me about who I was as an actress and then really pursuing it, I think I’ve been daring in that way,” she concluded.
Being one of the top actresses in Hollywood isn’t any easy feat to reach, and the journey to get there will have undoubtedly been very challenging. Anne Hathaway is a self-confessed prime example of how these struggles can take its toll on someone in this position.
While covering the November issue of Elle U.K., the Oscar-winning actress speaks candidly of a time when fame “stressed” her out, and how post-marriage life with her husband, actor Adam Shulman, took some adjusting.
“This fame thing? F–ked me up for a really long time,” Hathaway told the magazine. “I didn’t know how to do it; I didn’t know how to engage with it; it stressed me out. And people would say, ‘You just have to be yourself,’ and I was like, ‘But I don’t know who that is yet!'”
Apart form having a daunting professional life, the Dark Knight Rises actress’s personal life with Shulman was also under a lot of strain. “The first year of my marriage was insane,” she said. “So much happened so fast, and we didn’t get to focus on just being married until about a year in. So now, it’s just about letting myself feel safe.” Hathaway added: “There was a part of me that I was keeping in reserve, and when I got married, something shifted. .That question of, ‘How long’s this gonna last?’ is off the table. And when you’re not worried about that, there’s space to just be silly.”
Now that the 31 year-old starlet is a veteran in the movie business, she has learned to be comfortable in her own skin, and not to let negative criticisms upset her. “I’ve realized that don’t need validation from anybody. At all,” she stated. “I’m not sitting here now worrying, ‘What do you think of me?’ With all due respect, you seem like a lovely lady, but I don’t need you, or anyone else, to like me. And that’s so liberating. It’s a big reveal, man.”
The reason I haven’t updated the site’s following: As I mentioned before, I had serious problems with my laptop, which led into a major crash. Due this crash, I lost all data from my hard drive. Luckily most of it could be restored. But now there’s one hell of a chaos on my new laptop and it will take some time to sort all out. Don’t worry, you can expect regulary updates asap! ;)
