Girl Crush

Anne Hathaway is brilliant! I want to be her friend and go shopping with her and talk about deep stuff over a cup of hot apple cider (she can have tea or coffee, I won't judge). After watching her host Saturday Night Live for the third time, she has won my heart and I've developed a huge girl crush. She has a wonderful singing voice, great comedic timing, and can play serious raw roles beautifully. Is there anything this girl can't do?

Check out her pipes in her SNL opening monologue. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by the vocal talent of the whole cast, especially Jason Sudeikis and Taram Killam. You can tell she had fun and didn't hold back.

Did I mention she's on the cover of Vogue's December issue? She rocks her new short hair do with such confidence and freedom.

Here's a sneak peek on what Anne said in her interview with Vogue and Adam Green:
On her new pixie hairstyle, “I love the short-haired lifestyle,” Hathaway tells me with a laugh (she laughs a lot). “It’s awesome that I was able to go for a hike right before I came here to meet you, quickly wash my hair, and now it’s dry.” The only downside, she says, is having to get her hair cut every three weeks. “But I’m turning 30, and—I hope this isn’t obnoxious to say—I feel prettier, and much more myself. I guess I just feel much more satisfied with less now.”

On her big moment in the new movie, "A few weeks before we filmed it, I realized how I was going to have to sing it, and that it wasn’t going to be pretty,” Hathaway says. “First of all, it could never have compared with Patti LuPone or Lea Salonga”—both of whom have played Fantine onstage—“or even my mom, really: powerful singers with big, beautiful voices. I knew I couldn’t offer that, but I also knew it wouldn’t be appropriate. If I went for sounding beautiful while looking like this tragic wreck, it would be ridiculous. And I saw an opportunity, because of the nature of film, to just go for it and let it be alive and present and raw.”

On her career now, “I’d feel a little silly and overly dramatic to say that this feels like destiny,” she says. “But to have this come full circle in such a spectacular way—it’s making me very happy.” She thinks about it for a moment and laughs. “OK, it feels a little like destiny.”

I can't wait until Les Miserables comes out in theatres (on December 25). Anne plays Fantine, a struggling mother and prostitue who has TB. The previews has given me chills and my inner musical geek is super excited to see such a well executed musical out on the big screen.

So, Anne, if you're reading this, Hi, I love you and your work, let's have coffee drinks and share secrets while brushing each other's hair?

Who are you girl crushing these days?

I have to say while I'm not a huge Anne Hathaway fan I though she did a great job in the devil wears prada. I had no idea she chopped off her locks, but she looks good either way.

Fingers crossed one day you get to meet her!
