Serious Question: How would you help Anne Hathaway repair her image?

Two or three years ago, she could have gone on "Glee" and parodied herself, but that's been done.

Maybe if she lezzed out in public. People need to see she's not uptight.

I don't usually think this way but I have a feeling that she will become the first celebrity whose career is ruined by social media and the lemmings that are mainstream media, based only on her perceived personality.

If I am right, then it is a very scary precedent.

Their is so much hate just waiting to be ignited in the virtual world. I am no fan of Anne, btw.

Are you fucking kidding r10? I highly doubt any of this cyber hate will affect her at all. She's young so she reads it but I don't think it matters at all to her career. Remember the I hate Brenda Walsh websites back in the day? I don't think they affected Shannen Doherty at all. She's lame now but wasn't taken down by that shit.

Shannon Doherty's character on 90210.

There was an "I hate Brenda" grassroots campaign.

r13 Sorry, I didn't mean to come off bitchy, I just am baffled that anyone who is as famous as her would care what anon boards and others have to say. I am not a fan of hers but I think she will be ok.

Brenda Walsh was a 90210 character played by Shannen Doherty. Back when the internet was first getting big there was an I hate Brenda Walsh website that people thought was really bitchy and mean. I guess it was, I don't know. At any rate, I don't think it affected Shannen at all and I don't think this stuff will affect Anne.

by Anonymousreply 1503/04/2013

The thing is, there's no real reason for the hate, other than she's ambitious and serious, some people hate that in a woman. She can't make the ambitiousness and seriousness go away, because they're what makes her successful.

Her best bet is to take some time out of the public eye, and to fake a sense of humor when she returns.

by Anonymousreply 1603/04/2013

I would have her play a villain in a movie, an unhinged TV host on Tim and Eric Awesome Show semi-regularly, star in a SNL digital short that's sure to go viral, visit the troops with the USO, and donate a large amount of money to a small and unpretentious American charity.

Some time away from the public eye, some rest and as previously stated a couple of good film roles and she’ll be fine.

Some changes to her “team” may also be in order. I posted months ago that Huvane is long played out as a pr maven for anyone serious. He’s good for celeb-types like Aniston, JLo and Goop but not “serious” actresses as Hathaway aspires to be. Who does Weisz Watts or Chastain’s pr? That’s the place she needs to be in right now, not this current circus.

I bet that in the run up to the current situation when all the negative online crap was gearing up many weeks ago that Huvane let it ride, believing the “no publicity is ever bad publicity” type of meme. I bet he told her to ride it out it would disappear right after she won her Oscar and that’s why there’s no crisis plan in place now. She needs to can him if true.

Shannen Doherty acted like a cunt, people hated her and her career was never the same.

I would also guess that Paltrow's career would be doing a hell of a lot better if people didn't perceive her as a snotty bitch.

So I do think the wrong kind of image can ruin or hamper an actress's career.

Anne would probably benefit from a mentor. A fellow celebrity who is better at navigating the minefield that is the entertainment business. Someone extremely talented with superior intelligence rapier wit and breathtaking beauty.Most of all someone with humility and a kind generous heart who gives of herself selflessly.Honestly I can't think of anyone who would fit the bill better than Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence. I do wonder if she would have the time to take on a project of such magnitude she is always so busy with her humanitarian endeavors one wonders how would she find the time. Although knowing Jen I'm sure she'd make time she just doesn't have the ability to turn away someone in need.

by Anonymousreply 2703/04/2013

I don't think her image has needed any repair at all until very recently, because of that strange comment at the end of her Oscar acceptance speech and also the silly controversy over her dress. Even when she hosted the Oscars with Franco, although he was deservedly raked over the coals, I think she personally came out of it smelling like a rose because nobody felt it was her fault.

by Anonymousreply 2803/04/2013

I do find all this anti-Anne stuff disturbing, because it's so unearned. It's like a bunch of school bullies jumping on a brainy girl, because they want to "put her in her place". I use that phrase deliberately, because it means the bullies believe they get to decide what someone's "place" is, and they feel free to piss on other people's aspirations and achievements, usually because they have none of their own.

Jennifer Lawrence has avoided all this nastiness, because she's pretended she doesn't give a shit about winning an Oscar and being Hollywood's Flavor of the Month. It's not true, nobody gets to that position without sacrificing everything to get there!

Hathaway needs to hire Lawrence's publicist. That person has done a great job of disguising Lawrence's ambition, which seems to be what the bitches hate.

R29, extreme ambition and straight uo bitch assednedness don't necessarily go hand in hand. Hathaway is a high strung, bitchy person (see her comments to Sally Field), and all that just ain't necessary. She needs to tone it down.

Sissy Spacek, Sally Field, Meryl, Viola, Kathy Bates, Alfre, Jodie, and many others have made it to the top, and remained there, getting good roles into older age, without the bitch reputation.

It can be done, no doubt. But if age really IS a bitch, she should just own it and quit trying to come off as America's Sweetheart.

by Anonymousreply 3603/04/2013

Of course Lawrence has made sacrifices. However, she has a very natural, down-to-earth quality that people like. She also seems to have a sense of humor about herself and all the attention. Anne has had a career that many actresses would envy. Her place in the industry was secure. But during award season she came off as desperate and kind of weird. She has an Oscar now. She needs to just relax and enjoy it.

She appears to have only two very small upcoming roles according to IMDB, one a cameo in a Joseph Gordon Levitt movie, the other a voice role.

I would suggest she not do any bad movies or big movies, and that, above all, she NOT play Eliza in My Fair Lady for Clive Davis's proposed Broadway revival. She's a good actress and she can sing but she isn't good enough for that.

Can someone please give a summary of this "Anne Hathaway hate" issue?

When did this become a "known thing?" What triggered it?

Am I that out of the loop nowadays?

by Anonymousreply 4603/04/2013

I agree with R24, though I don't call women cunts.

When an actress feels the need to apologize for the dress she wore she is running pretty scared. When it becomes a big story there is more to be concerned with.

Anne Hathaway was cyber bullied for months until the mainstream media joined in.

Someone is going to say that I am being overly dramatic, and she is privileged enough that my heart is not bleeding. I still think that she has been discredited to the point that her livelihood is compromised. Who wants that?

She may be a tone deaf and fake public personality. The concentration and momentum of public hatred was kind of scary.

If that kind of energy could be put to better use on more deserving targets....

Hide out Hathaway.

Something’s been really off for her since she did Les Mis. I’m thinking maybe the extreme weight loss played with her hormones and messed her up a bit she really hasn’t been the same since. Seemed very high strung and weird during press for The Dark Knight, that’s when I noticed a change from before. And she was fine before, dorky and over-earnest granted but nothing like she is now. Needs to gain a few more lbs back and take a break.

by Anonymousreply 6003/05/2013

This guy nailed it:

[quote] Richard Lawson of The Atlantic Wire told's Moylan that Hathaway has "got this theater kid thing where she adopts the mood of every situation she's in -- rude and bawdy on 'Chelsea Lately,' poised and 'classy' at the Oscars, etc. -- but wildly overcompensates every time." Lawson continued, "She always seems like she's performing, and her favorite act is this overstated humility and graciousness."

Basically, the only way for her to repair her image is to stop worrying about her image and just be herself.

by Anonymousreply 6103/05/2013

I think it's hilarious that she has just won an award for acting but she can't act well enough to come across as sincere, modest and humbled. Hundreds of actresses have stood up there clutching their little award, looking "surprised" and making out like they're blown away by the victory. And many of them, no doubt, went home, high fived their publicist and yelled "suck it bitches". In the mean time the media wrote adoring articles about how sweet they were during their speech, how genuinely "stunned" the actress appeared and how well deserved their Oscar win was. Not AnnE though, no one bought a single word she said.

So she needs to fulfill all the movie commitments she's already signed onto because in a few years the work will have halved and the parts won't be as good. The execs will throw her name around as a casting option and then someone will pipe up and say " oh no, not Hathaway, the public hate her". There are a lot of things an actress can recover from publicity wise but the accusation that youre insincere coupled with a dull personality can be almost impossible.

by Anonymousreply 6203/05/2013

R61 - that's it! She reminds me of every theater kid I've even known. They all have that same affect.

That being said I'd like to see her dirty up her image with a nice drug overdose so she can repent and win another Oscar as a SURVIVOR.

I was shocked when I saw Anne's IMDb and the lack of future projects she has.

I've only started to find Anne annoying in the past year or s with her Oscar whoring and huge ego growth.

She come's across as unlikeable and pretentious and believing she's a much better actress than in fact she is like GOOP or Katie Hepbarn.

She could do what Hepbarn did after she was declared box office poison and she'll have to become more driven in getting roles for herself at her age.

Thinking highly of herself is a trait she shares with every one of her peers in the business. Every A lister thinks well of themselves otherwise they wouldn’t be A listers.

“avoiding superfluous press” should include no more arranged pap walks. That’s what started a lot of this shit, she was featured in the online media constantly sometimes 2-3 times a day for months despite calls that the coverage stop or slow up.

And she’s still at it. there were photos of her out today with accompanying articles. one headline: “and the Award For the Most Adoring Wife Goes to... Anne H Puts on an Affection Show with Adorable Husband”. For christs sake doesn’t she read the criticism?? the articles are increasingly detailing her husband, what he’s wearing how devoted is etc. wtf?

I almost never seen paps around Manhattan so it just isn't believable that a pap just 'happened' to be around when Anne and her husband were tooling around Brooklyn or when Sienna Miller is walking around the West Village. I never see paps in the West Village.
