During a Q&A at the Sundance Film Festival this weekend, Anne Hathaway answered questions from reporters about her upcoming psychological thriller Eileen, based on Ottessa Moshfegh’s 2015 novel of the same name, and spoke about how the film resonated with her on a personal level. Specifically, Hathaway cited the misogyny she faced early in her career, which helped her connect with the plot of Eileen and his dark observations on the oppressive life of a young woman in the 1960s.

“I just remembered that one of the very first questions I was asked when I started acting and had to do press was: are you a good girl or a bad girl? Hathaway said, according to Variety. “I was 16 years old. And my 16 year old self wanted to respond with this movie. »

At 16 in the late 1990s, Hathaway was just shy of rising to fame thanks to his breakout role in The Diary of a Princess. The intrusive and crudely sexualized commentary she received as a teenager is, disturbingly enough, roughly on par with what many women in Hollywood say they had to put up with early in their careers. Last month, former Disney star Bella Thorne revealed she was turned down for a role aged 10 when a casting director accused her of flirting with him. In a chat with Thorne, Ratajkowski revealed that when he was 16, his then-agent “pointed to my picture … and they were like, ‘This face. That’s how we know this girl gets fucked. In 2018, Natalie Portman, who is now 40, said that shortly after her role at age 12 in the film Leon: the professional, his local radio station launched a countdown to his 18th birthday. Throughout the 90s and 2000s, radio hosts threw similar countdowns for the Olsen twins and Emma Watson.

And, of course, in the new Hulu documentary Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields on the life of the actor-model, Shields herself comments on the highly sexualized film roles and brand campaigns she took on as a minor. Headlines about her in the ’80s read “America’s Newest Sexy Star” and “The World’s Youngest Sex Symbol?” »

Hathaway, unfortunate enough to find herself in this mix, now seems to be tapping into her justified and lingering frustrations with the mistreatment of women and girls through her role in Eileenslated for release later this year.

Hathaway told reporters at Sundance that his interest in the film adaptation of Moshfegh’s novel was piqued by director William Oldroyd, after Hathaway watched his 2016 film. Lady MacBeth. “I thought it was amazing work,” she said of the drama starring Florence Pugh. “I saw a study on female complications that really, really touched me, and I felt like Will was a filmmaker who could be trusted to tell complicated stories, especially about women . »

I’m forever Team Anne, more so for the films in which she smolders and fans the flames of sexual tension with a prison psychologist in what feels like pure mayhem. Drop me off for a ticket to Eileenplease.
