In keeping with her latest film Bride Wars, which will be out in theaters on January 9, lovely young actress Anne Hathaway shares a bit about the weddings that she has experienced thus far. It seems, despite the love troubles she had undergone in recent months, that she has nothing but fond memories of nuptials. One of her favorite memories occurred in her older brother’s nuptials to his boyfriend.
“At one point, he and his husband were standing up there, and my mom got up to sing. She was just beaming straight love into them, and everyone felt it, and it was just this really beautiful moment.”
She then goes on to say, “When Mike and Josh booked the place, it was before daylight savings time, and the sun was pretty high up in the sky. Now it was at eye level, and it was blinding! Burn-your-retina bright! [So] we sent my cousin’s boyfriend down to Canal Street [in New York City] with $250 to buy as many sunglasses as he could, and we put them on every other seat. Everybody just put on their sunglasses, and we have some great pictures of that! It’s all about crisis management, isn’t it?”
As for her own future walk down the aisle, she confesses that music will be a key factor to the whole experience, though it will not be coming any time too soon. “I haven’t thought about the food; I haven’t thought about the look; I haven’t thought about my dress. I haven’t really thought about the guy … but every once in a while, I’ll listen to a song, and I’m like, ‘I want that at my wedding!’”
Hathaway has been constantly praised as a good example of young Hollywood actresses, opting for a relatively reserved, clean-living lifestyle ever since her big break in Disney’s The Princess Diaries. Even her highly publicized split this year from Raffaello Follieri, who was arrested for wire fraud, money laundering, and conspiracy, just proved her knack at showing grace under fire. A marriage may not be in the works for her any time soon, but it looks like she is handling things just fine.
