ANNE Hathaway isn’t scared to say what she thinks.
The sexy Devil Wears Prada actress has urged Broadway playwrights to produce musicals with stronger storylines because she’s desperate to challenge both her acting and singing skills onstage.
“I would do a musical on Broadway in an absolute heartbeat and I’m constantly looking for the opportunities to do it,” she said.
“I don’t mean to slam musicals, but the problem is that, a lot of times, in the classic shows, the songs are heavenly but the book doesn’t offer the acting challenge that you hope.”
Anne recently revealed she has been inspired to start her own band after she started learning the guitar.
“I’m thinking about starting a band, it would be cool,” she said.
“I mean, I’m doing badly with the lessons but I’ve got a better guitar, so I sound better but I play just as badly. It’s acoustic. I shouldn’t say I’m at exactly the same level, I can play more chords now but I just can’t play them in any recognizable order, but, you know, I’m working on it.
“The band would only play one chord at a time in our songs — so we’d have a big hit.”
Anne — who can currently be seen starring alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in new movie Love and Other Drugs — recently revealed she wants to take a break from romantic comedies.
“I don’t want to focus on romance for a while,” she said. “I think I’ve exhausted that muscle.
“I want to fly a spaceship. And I want to shoot a laser into some intergalactic goop.”[imagebrowser id=789]
