This is what happens when you ask Anne Hathaway about that time she accidentally showed her Princess Diary to a bunch of photographers. (via entertainmentweekly)
This was some tenth-degree black belt media judo here. Read the setup:
Matt Lauer doesn’t mess around. When he greeted Anne Hathaway on the Today show this morning, the host got right down to business: “Good to see you,” he said. “Seen a lot of you lately.”
She didn’t get defensive, she didn’t get flustered, and she brought the conversation back to her primary reason for being on the show in the first place. Damn.
Wow, we’ve seen a lot of you lately. Matt Lauer you have fucked all the way up with this commentary. Implying that Anne Hathaway not only has given this photographer permission to take photos of her but also that she has decided to walk around town, showing every bit of her private area to the world is just… disrespectful and wrong.
And even if she had chosen to do the latter, the point is that she did not give that photographer the permission to do it in that moment AND not only that, she was there to talk about Les Mis, not her vagina. Matt Lauer get that shit together.
“I started off doing what I had to. Once you’ve done what you had to, they’ll never let you do what you want to.”
