Anne Hathaway has always been fairly open about her weight fluctuations. While most of these variances are due to films, she was quite thin in Les Miserables because she played a malnourished prostitute, she’s coming to the point where she doesn’t feel she needs to constantly justify the skin she’s in.
Hathaway says she’s “come to terms with the pressure” that society and the industry put on actresses to stay a certain size.
While recently on the Ellen Degeneres show, she spoke about how her co-star, superstar Rihanna actually put her mind at ease with one simple comment while they were on the set of their new film Ocean’s 8.
She recalls walking on to set in jeans and being aware that her weight was up because it wasn’t really falling off that quickly after the birth of her son.
Hathaway says that costar Sandra Bullock was encouraging by telling her she looked good, costar Cate Blanchett complimented her jeans and Rihanna went for a compliment Hathaway had never heard before.
“Damn girl, you got an a**.”
Hathaway was momentarily both shocked and delighted when Rihanna added, “You got an a** like me.”
The actress laughed and said she’d never had an experience like that on set before.
The Ocean’s 8 set wasn’t the first time Anne Hathaway and Rihanna have met. In fact, they first met on the set of Saturday Night Live in 2012.
When walking the red carpet for the premiere of the film this week, Rihanna praised the all-star female cast saying that she learned so much from all of the highly seasoned actresses.
Even though Rihanna’s the newbie in the acting world, both Sarah Paulson and Cate Blanchett were a bit star struck when it came to meeting the Bijan beauty for the first time.
Ocean’s 8 is widely released in theatres Friday, Jun 8th.
