No such thing as bad press? Anne Hathaway needs her Selina Kyle character in The Dark Knight Rises to rescue her after the triple-fail of Love and Other Drugs, hosting the Oscars with James I'd-Rather-Be-In-Class Franco and One Day, which is currently struggling to make back half its budget. She takes some pretty pictures, but might want to meditate on the mantra "less in more." She's better than her recent exposure suggests. It's doubtful that her recent rap on Conan (below) did her much good, either. Chelsea Handler interviews her for Interview Magazine:
After disagreeing with Handler relating One Day to Love and Other Drugs, Hathaway says: "I'm sorry. I'm so bad. I interrupt everybody. I'm so obnoxious. Pardon. I just get really excited when I talk—and especially when I talk to people who are fun to talk to—and I jump in at the end of every sentence and nobody ever gets to finish a thought. I'm working on it. I'm sorry."
A good excuse for her accent in One Day: "I wanted to make sure that the accent changed over the course of the movie, and that it wasn't just a standard Yorkshire—I don't know if that even exists—or a standard London accent. I wanted to make sure that the accent grew with her."
On her gay ex-boyfriends: "I'm convinced that a few guys I've dated are gay, and they won't admit it. I think we've all done that."
