Anne Hathaway has been in our lives for over 20 years. She gained mainstream recognition with her role as Mia in The Princess Diaries. Since then, she has had a storied career. Anne Hathaway is a household name.
Fast forward to 2021, where she tells the world to "stop calling her 'Anne.'"
Hathaway recently told Jimmy Fallon that she hates it when people refer to her as 'Anne.' She also said that her mother calls her 'Anne' when she's angry with her, so it gets pretty awkward when people yell her name at red carpet appearances.
So, what does the princess of Genovia want to be called?
Jimmy Fallon asked her the same question, and here is her response:
"Call me Annie! Everybody, everybody, call me Annie - please!"
Two decades into her career, and NOW she wants everyone to call her 'Annie.' Why didn't she refer to herself as 'Annie' in the first place?
According to Hathaway, she started going by 'Anne' professionally when she joined SAG as a teenager. She didn't know that her career was going to take off and she would be stuck with that moniker forever.
Listen, I like Anne Hathaway. I think she's a lovely actress, and her humanitarian work is amazing. However, she picked the wrong fucking time to gripe about her name. In the midst of a pandemic is the wrong time. She made herself look like a diva.
Btw, her name has a net worth of over $60 million. If I was making that kind of money, and people knew me as 'Medusa the cunty queen,' I would own it!
Let this be a lesson to anyone looking to get into acting, and even writing: pick your stage name wisely. You just never know what can happen. If you take off and achieve global fame and fortune, you are stuck with that name for life. You don't want to have any regrets.
