Anne Hathaway on the Pressure of Following Up Her Oscar Win and What She Learned By Producing 'Song One'

23 January 2015 12:22 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor's Note: This post is presented in partnership with Time Warner Cable Movies On Demand in support of Indie Film Month. Today's pick, "Song One," is available now On Demand. This interview originally ran during last year's Sundance Film Festival.] It's hard to believe, but it's been over a year since Anne Hathaway last graced the screen in "Les Misérables," the film that went on to win the actress her first Oscar. Since singing her way to glory as Fantine, Hathaway has maintained a low public profile, working on Christopher Nolan's hugely anticipated fall blockbuster "Interstellar" and diving into her first job as a producer on the low budget indie "Song One," in which she also stars. The film (written and directed by newcomer Kate Barker-Froyland) marks the first of Hathaway's to screen at the Sundance Film Festival. In the drama, Hathaway stars as Franny, an anthropologist who returns home to New York when an accident »

Anne Hathaway on ‘Song One': ‘Music is One of My Favorite Parts of Living’

21 January 2015 11:10 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Anne Hathaway can now add producer to her impressive résumé.

The Oscar winner and her husband, Adam Shulman, have teamed up with Jonathan Demme — director on Hathaway’s “Rachel Getting Married” — to produce their first film, “Song One,” the debut feature from writer-director Kate Barker-Froyland.

“I really loved producing. I loved being able to support a filmmaker in a way beyond acting in a movie,” Hathaway, 32, told Variety at the film’s Cinema Society premiere in New York on Tuesday night. “I learned that the goal is the same whether I am an actor or a producer — that I will do anything to get the director’s vision.”

Hathaway (dressed head to toe in white, in an Iro blazer, Theory pants and sheer top) along with Shulman, reunited with cast members Johnny Flynn and Ben Rosenfield at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema for the first time since the picture premiered at »

Why Anne Hathaway still likes the Oscars, despite their strange relationship

19 January 2015 11:40 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Anne Hathaway hosted the Oscars with a spiritually absent James Franco in 2011 and won an Academy Award during a period of notable Hathaway backlash. It's fair to say she has the strangest relationship with the Oscars of any living human being. We told her this. She laughed -- then agreed. "That might be true," she said. "But I'm really excited when you watch people grow through it the first time. That energy is a very real thing. Like right now I'm really excited for Eddie Redmayne... He's an incredible actor, so hard-working, and he's killed it in every role he's ever had, whether he's had one line or he's singing an aria in 'Les Miz.'" Check out our interview to see Hathaway, the star of the new and intense drama "Song One" out January 23, discuss the character she misses playing most, the time she met Barbra Streisand, and her love for J.K. Simmons. »

Love Is The Rhythm And Anne Hathaway Is The Music In New Trailer For Song One

16 January 2015 8:35 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having spent time winning praise and stealing hearts across a variety of major productions in the past few years — The Dark Knight Rises, Interstellar and Les MisérablesAnne Hathaway is primed to make a return to the kind of indie romances that helped put her on the map with Kate Barker-Froyland’s musical drama, Song One.

Taking place within the musical scene of Brooklyn, the film will chart the story of Hathaway’s Franny who unexpectedly finds love in James Forester’s Johnny. What underpins this relationship, however, is the fact that Franny’s brother Henry (played here by Boardwalk Empire‘s Ben Rosenfield) recently suffered from a horrible accident that places him in a coma. As it turns out, the musically gifted Johnny is his long-time idol, giving Hathaway’s protagonist a poignant and tragic connection to her sibling as she tries to wean him back to the land of the living through music. »

Matthias Schoenaerts Joins Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl

9 January 2015 8:57 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fresh off a strong turn in underrated crime drama The Drop, Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts has joined the cast of The Danish Girl, a period love story to be helmed by Les Misérables director Tom Hooper.

Schoenarts, whose previous films include Bullhead and Rust & Bone, will act opposite a trio of tremendously talented stars, including The Theory of Everything‘s Eddie Redmayne, veritable Next Big Thing Alicia Vikander (her upcoming films include Ex Machina, Testament of Youth, The Man from Uncle, Tulip Fever and The Light Between Oceans) and The Rum Diary‘s Amber Heard.

The Danish Girl, adapted from the novel by David Ebershoff by Lucinda Coxon (The Crimson Petal and the White), focuses on the unusual romance between Danish painter Einar Wegener (Redmayne) and his wife Gerda (Vikander), also an accomplished painter. In 1930, Einar became one of the first men to ever undergo a sex change operation. The »

Matthias Schoenaerts joins Tom Hooper’s gender-bending 'The Danish Girl'

8 January 2015 8:36 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After 2011’s "Bullhead" earned a Best Foreign Language Academy Award nomination, Matthias Schoenaerts could have become a James Bond villain and called it a day. Instead, the muscle-laden Belgian actor has challenged type-casting by sticking to promising films and name costars. Schoenaerts’ next project is destined for an awards frenzy: He’s set to join current Best Actor contender Eddie Redmayne in "The Danish Girl." Academy Award-winning director Tom Hooper follows up "Les Misérables" with the culled-from-real-life story, dramatizing the life of Danish painter Einar Wegener, who became one of the first men to undergo gender reassignment surgery. Lucinda Coxon ("Crimson Peak") wrote "The Danish Girl," based on a novel by David Ebershoff. Redmayne signed on to play Wegener last April.  Deadline’s original report is unclear about who Schoenaerts will play in "The Danish Girl," though his mere inclusion bumps up the film’s prestiguous cast, which includes Alicia Vikander »

Anne Hathaway's Oscars Advice to Neil Patrick Harris: 'Do the Opposite of What I Did'

6 January 2015 4:35 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Anne Hathaway isn't proud of her 2011 Oscars hosting gig, but she has faith that Neil Patrick Harris will do a wonderful job this year. "He'll be great. He's a natural host," Hathaway told The New York Times. Her advice to the actor? "Do the opposite of what I did, and you'll be fine." Hathaway and co-host James Franco received criticism for their performance at the 83rd annual Academy Awards, especially their opening, when they spoofed the year's top movies. When asked what she thinks she did wrong, she replied, "I think it's so obvious that it doesn't even need to be identified. »

Josh Hutcherson, Gerard Butler: See 5 awkward movie audition tapes

6 January 2015 6:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

If Eddie Redmayne is lucky, his unsuccessful Lord of the Rings audition tape - which he treated us to a rendition of this week - will never see the light of day.

Sadly, some actors aren't so fortunate...

1. Josh Hutcherson

If nothing else, this audition is certainly… elaborate. A pre-Hunger Games, and inexplicably spotty, Josh Hutcherson went up for the lead in The Amazing Spider-Man – a role which eventually went to Andrew Garfield.

It's not the most cerebral of auditions. In three minutes, Josh only manages to say "Thanks" and "Late for class", followed by another "Thanks".

Not that it's important when your tape features you beating up three men, doing a backflip and jumping about seven foot in the air. Backwards.

2. Gerard Butler

Or is that Ross Noble? Sporting offensive amounts of eyeliner and a dodgy accent, Gerard Butler gave this pretty bad audition for the role of Dracula in Wes Craven's 2000 movie, »

Russell Crowe: 'Older actresses should act their age'

5 January 2015 3:54 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Russell Crowe has hit out at older actresses who complain about ageism in Hollywood.

The Les Misérables star stated that female actors who complain about the lack of substantial roles for older women can no longer "play the ingénue".

Crowe told Australian Women's Weekly that veteran stars should accept they can only play roles suitable for their age, rather than younger parts.

He explained that actors should be "willing to live in their own skin", accepting that he isn't able to play roles similar to Gladiator at the age of 50.

When asked about the ageism debate, Crowe said: "To be honest, I think you'll find that the woman who is saying that [the roles have dried up] is the woman who at 40, 45, 48, still wants to play the ingénue, and can't understand why she's not being cast as the 21-year-old.

"Meryl Streep will give you 10,000 examples and arguments as to why that's bulls**t, so will Helen Mirren, »
