Nobody Wants To Join Anne Hathaway’s Book Club And It Makes Me Sad

By  | 

"An Actor's Companion" Book Release

Hasn't Anne Hathaway been through enough? Two years ago the entire universe rolled its eyes whenever she said or did anything. Since then she's managed to win some detractors back over to her side (myself included), but the Hathahate still flows through plenty of people. Now I'm worried it's spreading to her own famous friends.

Anne recently told Glamour UK about her attempts to start a book club with fellow actresses Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain, with whom she worked on The Devil Wears Prada and Interstellar, respectively. If you're wondering, yes, that is definitively the most Anne Hathaway thing Anne Hathaway has ever done. They did a study, there were lots of charts made, statistics were analyzed, etc. 

Unfortunately, Emily and Jessica are currently working on a movie together called The Huntsman, so it's been hard for Anne to get the club off the ground:

“I'm trying right now to start a book club with Em and Jessica, because they're working on a movie together. I said, ‘Let's all read this book!' But I'm not working and they are, so it's not going very well.”

Is anyone else feeling really sad face emoji right now? Poor Anne just wants to read a book with her friends and probably go into long speeches about symbolism and character development. Frankly, Emily and Jessica should just humor her and pretend they read the book, because I don't really see them getting a word in edgewise during the club meeting anyway.

Do you think Anne's been sending book club requests to even more people in Hollywood? Are they all talking about it at their famous people parties? Can't you just see it now? “Did you get that email from Anne?” “Ugh, the one about the book club?” “I said I had voiceover work to do in Antarctica.” “I said I'm too busy working on my post-baby body.” “I said I don't know how to read.”

Hey, Anne. Hit me up. What do you want to read together? Want to snark on Fifty Shades of Grey? Maybe a little Jane Austen? Everyone Poops? Let's do this, Anne. You and me.
