Anne Hathaway recalls reporters asking “are you a good girl or a bad girl” at 16

Anne Hathaway, the 40-year-old American actress and a recipient of numerous accolades including an Academy Award, a Golden Globe alongside a Primetime Emmy Award among others, had been asked some questions by the reporters at 16 which might seem awkward or inappropriate, the Oscar-winner said in a Q&A session following premiere of her new film “Eileen”.

As the 40-year-old mother of two had reflected on some of her unpleasant experiences with the reporters, she recalled reporters asking her whether she was a good girl or a bad girl at sixteen.

Anna Hathaway was asked whether she is a bad girl at sixteen

Over the weekend, speaking in a Q&A session at the stage of Sundance Film festival, Anne Hathaway looked back to one of the very first questions that she had to encounter while facing off the reporters at sixteen saying, “I just remembered, one of the very first questions I ever got asked when I started acting, which meant, you know, I had to do press, was, ‘Are you a good girl or a bad girl? I was 16.

And my 16-year-old self wanted to respond with this film. And so though I did not know that when I read the script, I think part of me hoped for this exact moment”. While being asked about her most recent project, Eileen, based on a novel of Ottessa Moshfegh, in which Hathaway had played the role of a prison psychologist (Dr Rebecca St John), the actress said, “I thought it was extraordinary work.

I saw a study of female complication that hit me really, really deep, and I felt like Will was a filmmaker that could be trusted to tell complicated stories, especially about females”.
