Anne Hathaway‘s Oscar campaign has been the topic of much scrutiny over the past couple of months. She’s adorable and genuine! She’s cloying! She’s trying too hard! We’re being too hard on her for trying to hard! Ah the circle of life, Awards Season style. Regardless of your feelings about Hathaway’s schtick, it was out in full force at the Oscars Nominee Luncheon earlier this week. Anne charmed the press room with tales of hunt for an Oscar night-worthy gown, her Super Bowl eating habits, and being BFF with the director of every awesome movie ever made, ever.*
“I don’t know how to say this without sounding obnoxious,” said the actress, giggling. “But I’ve been hanging out with Steven Spielberg lately.”
Oh Anne – we’re eye-rolling and loving you all at once.
(*Except you, War Horse. You were kind of a snooze.)
