Anne Hathaway: ‘Being Seen as Vanilla Ruins my Sex Appeal’

Wednesday, January 2, 2013

ANNE Hathaway says her “vanilla” image has robbed her of sex appeal.

The actress insists she has been blighted with a “good girl” image, and says she is “not cool” with fans approaching her wanting “a hug not a photo” as a result of her reputation.

“I’m not Rihanna,” she told Harper’s Bazaar.

“I’m not cool. When people come up to me in the street, they often want a hug not a photo, and they want that because they like my work.

“For a long time it was me and her [her manager] against the world. I was seen as this bizarre-world good-girl cartoon that I in no way identified with – very vanilla, very sweet, very accessible and not interesting.

“I had no grit, no sex appeal.”
