Anne Hathaway Interview for “One Day”
Independent Films, Talk Shows, Interviews, Film Profiles
Anne Hathaway was in high spirits when I met her for the “One Day” junket in New York. This was my third time meeting her, and absolutely my favorite interview with her! She was sweet, cordial, and FUN!
Hathaway plays Emma Morley in the upcoming movie “One Day” based on the book by David Nicholls. Directed by Lone Scherfig, the fantastic helmer who gave us Carey Mulligan in “An Education,” “One Day” captures the tone and spirit of the book!
In this interview, we talked about:
*** What did she see in her character Emma that made her want to do “One Day”
*** How did she prepare for the role?
*** Did she help in looking for the right “look” for Emma?
*** Speaking of “look,” Hathaway teases us about Catwoman! She purrs and meows and scratches! HA!
HAVE FUN AND WATCH “ONE DAY” WHEN IT OPENS NATIONWIDE THIS FRIDAY, AUGUST 19TH!
