Anne Hathaway's Worst Films

Anne Hathaway becoming JaneAnne Hathaway has made herself a highly regarded career, like many actresses Anne has had good movies and not-so-good movies. Here are 2 of two of her worst that we thought were mockery...

Becoming Jane
"Becoming Jane" is supposed to be about the love life of Jane Austen, author of "Pride and Prejudice." Too bad "Becoming Jane" and the film version of "Pride and Prejudice" are basically the same movie. Because of this, "Becoming Jane" seems to be redundant and unnecessary. To top it off, Keira Knightley's performance as the fictional Elizabeth Bennett is far more dazzling than Hathaway's portrayal of Jane Austen.

Hathaway plays the strong female type well, but Jane Austen's personality is a little too witty and biting for Hathaway. Knightley has a little more fire in her, and she brings that to the character of Elizabeth. After all, she has worked with pirates.

When watching "Becoming Jane," viewers may feel more fascinated by the landscape and settings than by the movie or acting. The homes and properties of the wealthy characters are lavish and provide an eye candy effect that is usually more interesting than the characters.

We have nothing against Anne Hathaway, but "Becoming Jane" is an overall flop. It is trumped by "Pride and Prejudice," mostly because of Keira Knightley's more sprightly performance of the Elizabeth/Jane role, but also because of its lack of passion.

Anne Hathaway Ella EnchantedElla Enchanted
"Ella Enchanted" is a story about a young girl, Ella, who had a spell cast on her as a baby. The spell is an obedience spell; therefore, Ella must obey all orders given to her.

The set-up of this movie is incredibly similar to Cinderella. Her name is Ella, and she has an evil stepmother and two snobby step-sisters who torment her. A prince is in search of a wife to be his princess, and there is a ball in which all the women desperately want to go to. All of this has been done before with Cinderella remakes in general.

Overall, "Ella Enchanted" is boring and lacks freshness. It doesn't produce much laughs and even Hathaway's performance is bland. There seems to be no connection between her and the character, as if she just wasn't that into it. "Ella Enchanted" is a failed attempt to put a new twist on an old story.

Anne Hathaway's Best Films

Anne Hathaway Hollywood starlet a BritishAnne Hathaway has built herself a highly regarded career, but like many actors Hathaway has had good movies and not-so-good movies. Here are 2 of her best works, that we thought were worthy of praise...

The Princess Diaries
The Princess Diaries is a comedy-drama film and the screen adaptation of Meg Cabot's 2000 novel of the same name. The film stars Anne Hathaway as Mia Thermopolis, a teenager who discovers that she is the heir to the throne of the fictional Genovia, ruled by her grandmother, Queen Clarisse Renaldi, who is portrayed by Julie Andrews. It also stars Heather Matarazzo as Mia's best friend Lilly Moscovitz, Héctor Elizondo as Renaldi's head of security, and Robert Schwartzman as Lilly's brother, who has a crush on Mia.

The movie itself is charming. Watching Mia's progression from an average teenager who pukes (literally) at the thought of public speaking to a royal figure is inspiring and fun. Mia's clumsiness is the cause of much of the movie's humor. During her first formal dinner as a princess, she starts a fire and causes chaos when a waiter trips over her as she picks up her dropped food off the floor. She undergoes a make-over, prepares to rule a country and deals with the press all while managing to stay true to herself. She embraces her newly acquired identity and intertwines it with her own personal one.

Mia's relationship with her grandmother, Queen Clarisse (Julie Andrews), is touching. They start off roughly, but gradually become as close as, well…grandmother and grandchild. Queen Clarisse teaches Mia about royal life while Mia teaches Queen Clarisse about average life with corndogs, arcade games, and convertibles. Queen Clarisse overcomes being just a queen to Mia and allows herself to put their family relations before their royal ones. Princess Diaries is a cute tale of friendship, the importance of family, and responsibility.

The Devil Wears Prada
The Devil Wears Prada is a 2006 comedy-drama film, a loose screen adaptation of Lauren Weisberger's 2003 novel of the same name. It stars Anne Hathaway as Andy Sachs, a recent college graduate who goes to New York City and gets a job as a co-assistant to powerful and demanding fashion magazine editor Miranda Priestly, played by Meryl Streep. Emily Blunt and Stanley Tucci co-star in support of the two leads, as catty co-assistant Emily Charlton, and critical yet supportive Art Director Nigel, respectively. Adrian Grenier, Simon Baker and Tracie Thoms play key supporting roles. Wendy Finerman produced and David Frankel directed; the film was distributed by 20th Century Fox.

"The Devil Wears Prada" features Anne Hathaway along side the legendary Meryl Streep in which Hathaway plays a junior assistant to the editor-in-chief (Streep) of a fashion magazine titled Runway. Andy Sachs (Hathaway) immediately finds the job difficult and is looked down on by virtually everyone in the office. Without any training, Andy must figure out how to do her job on her own. Streep's character, Miranda Priestly, is harsh, blunt, and usually just plain mean. She calls Andy fat and insults her fashion sense, as well as demands her to be on-call at all times. Andy even had to miss her boyfriend's birthday to be at Miranda's side at a formal event where she had to know all of the guests' faces and names since Miranda is supposed to, but does not.

Despite Miranda's icy personality, Andy seems to want her to like her. She strives to prove to Miranda and her co-workers that she is capable and can excel at her job. Andy is a likeable and strong woman who does not let others hinder her motivation. Hathaway fits the part and is believable as Andy.

In the end, Andy walks away from the job that, according to many other characters in the movie, "millions of girls would kill for." She takes a position at a local newspaper instead. The last time she sees Miranda is on a street in New York. Andy is walking on one side of the street when she spots Miranda getting into her limo on the other. Miranda glances at Andy who waves, but does not acknowledge her. Once Miranda is in the car, she smiles to herself. Perhaps Andy's biggest accomplishment is breaking into the interior of Miranda Priestly, who tells the man hiring Andy that he would be an idiot not to take her. "The Devil Wears Prada" demonstrates that there is softness hidden under even the hardest of surfaces-and that is encouraging.

Anne Hathaway - has always dreamed of being British

Anne Hathaway Hollywood starlet a BritishAnne Hathaway has always dreamed of being British. She always longed to be British. Hathaway told the Mirror in an interview, "I used to want to be British very badly and to sound British. Having the sense of humor and natural self-deprecation would have been nice, too."

Anne Hathaway spoke w/ a British accent in the film, Becoming Jane, but the 26-year-old doesn’t think she would ever slip into the accent by mistake. she said. "Having trained to do the accent and really found out how much is involved, I wouldn't now dare open my mouth and try to do it without at least a week of hardcore coaching beforehand,"

Anne Hathaway - I am a good girl!!!

Anne Hathaway in s_xy shirtAnne Hathaway has insisted hathaway didn't play a junkie in a bid to shed her good girl image.

Hathaway said she signed up to play a recovering drug addict in Rachel Getting Married because it was a great part, not to help her escape her most famous role in Disney's Princess Diaries.

Anne admitted. "I know everybody wants me to relish it, because I get that question in every single interview,"

"Not to sound arrogant or cocky, I've never defined myself by the way other people did. It's always been 'be yourself, be yourself, be yourself'. Well, the person I am is an actress, and I'm really excited that I feel, with this movie, I've earned that title.

"I've certainly been striving to earn it since The Princess Diaries, so I just feel happy now that I don't have to have this weight on my shoulders in regards to my attitude towards myself about being a performer, that I actually did something I'm proud of, where all the intentions I have for the character made it onto the screen."

Hathaway added she "never made any choices or really thought about the way I was perceived because I just don't see the point".

But Anne HAtahaway admitted it was "cool" to do something different, adding: "It wasn't cool because I had done the Princess Diaries, it was cool because Jonathan Demme is a f****** great director and Kym's an amazing character. It was cool on its own merit."

Garry Marshall's daughter, Kathleen Marshall, plays Clarisse's secretary Charlotte Kutaway. Charlotte's surname is mentioned only in the credits, and Garry Marshall says it is a reference to how she is often used in cutaway shots. In one scene, Robert Schwartzman's real-life group Rooney makes a cameo playing a garage band named Flypaper, whose lead singer is Michael, played by Schwartzman.
