Anne Hathaway: Fame 'Fucked Me Up For a Really Long Time'

Anne Hathaway, an actress that people loooove to have strong opinions about, is on the November cover of Elle UK, wearing a very chill suit and looking suave as hell. In the accompanying interview she talks about how fame is stressful, which, yeah. Being famous sounds mostly not fun except for the part where everyone lets you wear chill suits for free.

“The fame thing? Fucked me up for a really long time,” she 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!'”

Now she is in a better place: “I’ve realized that don’t need validation from anybody. At all. 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.” YOU TELL ‘EM, ANNE. WHO CARES WHAT THE ASSORTED PLEBS OF THE INTERNET (I obviously include myself in this category) THINK. [Elle UK, NYDN]

In another sublime moment of Peak Drake, the rapper made a joke about his failed relationship with Rihanna — he was performing with Lil Wayne and Lil Wayne did a dance, prompting Drake to say, “Maybe I should’ve brought that shit out earlier. Maybe I could’ve made that shit work with Rihanna a little better.” Don’t blame yourself Drake!!!! Rihanna is a goddess who cannot be tethered to a mere mortal, not even one who was on Degrassi.

Amanda Bynes was reportedly kicked out of fashion school last month. Her classmates tell TMZ that she often showed up to class “high on weed” and was caught cheating on a test. I really hope she’s able to get the help and support she needs. [TMZ]
