Well, she’s actually making herself a walking joke.
So there’s NOTHING really wrong and offensive with this speech that is FULL OF FAKERY and HIDDEN HYPOCRISIES!?
I was not laughing at her. In fact, my thoughts about her air-headedness just got a bit justified. Thanks Hatha-haters, especially those who err… support them (James Franco, Mrs. Jackman and Joan Rivers — I credit you guys for the wonderful err… “speeches”).
Seriously, Ms. Anne. Being in a musical does not give you a free pass to be “diva-divahan” (err… it is “acting to be like a diva/prima donna) if in fact, Katie Holmes, ScarJo, Natalie Portman and err… Charlize Theron are more respected than you nowadays. At least these people I’ve mentioned remained down-to-earth despite their global fame. Sorry but you have to stop being so fake and hypocritical even though we really do admire your acting skills. If you earn more detractors that are more logical than the typical know-it-all, mind you that the more down-to-earth A-listers will outsmart you.
However, people said that there’s nothing really wrong with this gal’s speech.
Diva Attitude < Feisty Attitude
Nowadays, people think that a fake attitude on the outside but a diva attitude on the inside is much more admired than the more transparent ones. I’d choose someone in Hollywood who really speaks out their mind rather than someone like Anne Hathaway who is showing fake modesty, fake humility, false sense of humor… I just do not understand the so-call “hype” with this “false acting” she’s showing.
Being a prima donna just because of your achievements does not make you superior. Even Lea Salonga attested that Anne Hathaway is not qualified enough for stage acting/musical casting. If Lea has the right to be a diva for her diligence, hardwork and numerous achievements (given that she grew up in an environment that is considered a real training ground), Anne has still a long way to go. Being a diva should be manifested in the RIGHT WAY which will make you still more likeable.
Have you ever heard Lea being bitchy in every interviews she was in?
So far, if you think that having a diva attitude is admirable, it’s either you’re idolizing the right person or not. There are famous singers and recording artists who possess diva demands during their concerts because they have the right to do so–but nevertheless, they still remain warm and welcoming. Look at Katy Perry and Lady GaGa–they both have diva demands, but do these demands make them less friendly? ‘Course not! When J-Lo was in the Philippines, she’s very much respected and NO single complain against her was heard (J-Lo also has a set of diva demands which include white flowers on a trailer).
These artists I’m mentioning still have a warm and welcoming stage presence despite their diva demands. At least they still have the right to be a diva, but in a good way–which will make sure that they still have their own personal space during their global tour/s.
It’s really sad that most people think that Anne Hathaway is still likeable despite her airhead attitude nowadays. Well, if that attitude is admirable, then that does not even make you more knowledgeable than the rest of the bloggers who side with the better. Reminds me of Majarot still being well-liked despite her shenanigans. As a matter of fact, the world is getting closer to the immoral and hypocritical side and the grey areas are depicted in a bad light.
