Earlier today we showed Anne Hathaway‘s interview with Chelsea Handler and photo spread in Interview Magazine. When the comedienne asked Hathaway who her current style icon was, the One Day star picked the Duchess of Cambridge. “Right now, I’m obsessed with Kate Middleton. Obsessed,” Hathaway gushed. “I loved the Royal Wedding. I was so cynical going into it, and pseudo-political about the whole thing, but as soon as I saw her I was utterly charmed. I’m just completely enchanted by Kate and William. With everything she’s doing right now, I say, ‘Yay, Kate.’”
Handler had to agree with Hathaway, which took us by surprise; We were expecting a snarky dig at TRH. “I didn’t watch the whole wedding, but I remember when I watched the recaps on the news, you really saw a couple walk into the church, and when they walked out, it was like they had just grown up-like their whole world had changed in that moment,” Handler said to her interview subject. “It was like they transformed before our eyes, and you don’t get to see that happen to people very often. So it was hard not to fall in love with them in that regard.”
What does Hathaway think about Catherine’s new life in the spotlight? “Well, bringing it back again to my respect for Kate Middleton, they seem to have struck a really amazing balance between having a completely normal private life and understanding the responsibilities that their positions require. If I loved someone enough and they were into having that balance, yeah, I could see myself doing it. No one has asked me, by the way.”
Hathaway played Her Royal Highness in a Saturday Night Live skit when she hosted on November 20th, 2010.
