Every time I see Anne Hathaway in a movie I can’t help but think to myself, “why didn’t they get a better actress?”
It’s not that I dislike her, I’m just not really a fan. Two of my favorite movies are Brokeback Mountain and Interstellar, and I don’t find her distracting in either one of those BUT I can’t help but feel that a different actress would have been better. Eh, actually, keep her in Brokeback Mountain. And I guess I really can’t picture anyone else in her role in Interstellar, but I think that’s probably due to the fact that I’ve seen that movie a bunch of times and I love it the way it is.
She killed Les Miserables (that’s “killed the film”, not “killed it in that film”)… not to say that the film didn’t have a whole slew of other issues, but she was big one – you aren’t supposed to feel relieved when Fantine dies. Her accent in One Day is ridiculously inconsistent and distracting, it irked me to the point where I actually felt like she had it coming to her at the end. Two big roles that just weren’t good – hard to recover from that.
She did, however, just go public about what a hardcore pothead she is – so, at least there’s that. Respect.
