Anne Hathaway at Sundance dismisses report of near drowning
Park City • Don’t worry, Anne Hathaway is OK.
Recently paparazzi photos circulated of the Oscar-winner on vacation in Hawaii with her husband and looking like she was having an emergency while in the ocean. Reports stated she had gotten caught in a riptide, was injured and had to be rescued.
While attending the Sundance premiere of her movie "Song One," Hathaway said: "I’m fine. ... I really do appreciate everybody’s concern but that was a picture that had a false story attached to it. The real story is not as interesting."
She also joked to a reporter that someone told her to say she was playing Charades and "pulled Titanic."
"Song One" stars Hathaway as a woman estranged from her family but returns home when her brother is in a serious accident. While she deals with her emotions as her brother is in a coma, she explores the Brooklyn music scene.
Hathaway does sing in the film and says it was far less pressure than when she had to sing "I Dreamed a Dream" for "Les Miserables."
"It wasn’t as much pressure because my character is not a singer, a musician anything, so there is no pressure to, I don’t know — to please the fans of the music I guess," she said.
"Song One" is directed by Katie Barker-Froyland and also stars Ben Rosenfeld, Johnny Flynn and Mary Steenburgen.
