Anne Hathaway
Nowadays she’s one of the world’s most successful actresses – and an Oscar nominee to boot – but even Catwoman had to start somewhere!
Here’s Anne Hathaway in her first TV appearance on a commercial for Better Homes and Gardens. And guess what she’s crying. Again!
This spot first aired in 1999, around the time that Hathaway’s career officially launched on the short lived Fox comedy, Get Real. That show only lasted for one season, but 2 years later Anne hit it big in The Princess Diaries, followed by the likes of Brokeback Mountain, The Devil Wears Prada, Rachel Getting Married, The Dark Knight Rises, Les Miserables and, umm, Bride Wars. Well I guess you can’t win them all.
Personally I’m a Hathaway fan and don’t really understand all the Hatha-haters out there who seem to have launched a bit of an anti-Anne campaign recently. I can think of dozens of far more objectionable actresses, even though I’d be the first to admit I wasn’t a Les Miserables fan…
Anyway here’s Anne in action 14 years ago. You can always play it on mute and run I Dreamed A Dream in the background!
