Anne Hathaway Took Time Off Because 'People Needed a Break From Me'

Looks like Anne Hathaway wasn’t immune to the Anne Hathaway backlash. The star says that she dropped out of the public eye for a bit after her Oscar win because “my impression is people needed a break from me.” Oh, Anne!

“My impression is that people needed a break from me,” she said (reportedly with a laugh) in a new interview with the Huffington Post.
While her profile could only be so low following her Golden Globe, SAG and Oscar winners for Les Misérables, she did pop up on the big screen only once during the rest of the year, in a cameo in Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s indie romance Don John.
But after a romantic trip to Hawaii with hubby Adam Shulman to kick off the new year, Hathaway is back in action with a vengeance, with no less than three films in the release pipeline for 2014. (And four if you count her voicing a character in the animated Rio 2.)
She’s currently at the Sundance Film Festival to promote her latest movie, Song One, which she also produced with Shulman.

Oh, Anne. I didn’t need a break from you! I THINK YOU SEEM NICE AND I LIKE YOUR HAIR. [E!]

Apparently Adam Brody refers to his sex scenes with Kristen Bell in House of Lies as “threesomes,” because Bell had a baby inside her at the time.

Brody “affectionately refers to our sex scenes as our threesomes because my belly was just on top,” Bell, 33, told O’Brien, adding that the actor was a good sport as she finessed her being pregnant as they cavorted in the sack.

Bell hopes baby Lincoln, who turns 1 in March, will one day come to appreciate her work, which included shooting scenes of making a sex video on the show where Mom’s growing tummy was cropped out to make it appear realistic.

“And now I can forever look at my daughter and say, ‘Oh, you were pregnant for that!’ ” said Bell, who, later appearing on Chelsea Lately told host Chelsea Handler that she hopes her daughter grows up to view the lovemaking as healthy.
