Dykon: Anne Hathaway
It’s time to pay homage at the altar of dyke icons. This week it’s the actress who’s gone from being a perky teen star to a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood. Oh, and she only has good things to say about her first lesbian smooch.
Anne Jacqueline Hathaway.
Also known as:
Meryl Streep’s bitch in The Devil Wears Prada.
Not to be confused with:
Shakespeare’s wife Anne Hathaway.
Out celebrating her 31st birthday with her husband (that’s right, husband – sad face).
Can you believe she’s only 31?
Mega-watt smile, confidence and.. being able to rock both these looks:
Most likely to:
Leave Catholicism in favour of supporting LGBT equality.
“The whole family converted to Episcopalianism after my elder brother came out. Why should I support an organisation that has a limited view of my beloved brother?”
Least likely to:
Become a size zero.
“In Hollywood, you have to be careful if you go above a six, then you’re considered fat. I’m considered to be, I hope, an actress and you can get away with a couple of extra pounds if you’re trading on your talent instead of your sex appeal. I don’t have time to be tortured about my weight.
If designers want to dress me, then I am at the larger end of the Hollywood scale so they have to be fine with that”.
For what it’s worth, we think she fills out a red carpet dress rather nicely.
Is she a sista?
Despite some rumours a couple of years back suggesting she was into girls, the answer is no, she’s not a sista.
However, she’s raved about her first onstage lesbian kiss with co-star Audra McDonald while performing Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night in New York’s Central Park back in 2009.
“Her lips were fabulous, pillowy soft, I mean, wow!”
And for tips on a really good snog, it seems Anne looks to Hollywood’s leading ladies.
“Jennifer Garner – now that girl can movie kiss. I gotta say that girl can really give it some up there. There is full-on movie kissing…but really you have to be Angelina Jolie to pull that off and still look good. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I ain’t no Angie.”
Well Anne, you know what they say – practice makes perfect. We say keep at it!
So high. She’s definitely a stunner.
Her amazing acting talent and her solo in Les Miserables – woah.
