Anne Hathaway has curated an extensive filmography over every decades in the entertainment business. Still, there’s a clear choice regarding the one movie she wants her children ― Jonathan, 6, and Jack, 2 ― to view when the time is right.
While you might be forgiven for betting it all on “Princess Diaries,” the actor revealed her other, perhaps more groundbreaking choice during an appearance on SiriusXM’s “The Jess Cagle Show” on Monday.
“I am really excited to show them ‘The Devil Wears Prada.’ It’s such a good movie,” Hathaway exclaimed.
“And I say that, you know, with complete humility, I’m a small part in that movie,” she said. “It’s David Frankel, our director. It’s Meryl Streep. I mean, you know, Stanley [Tucci]Emily [Blunt]everyone ― Patricia Field.”
“It’s just such a joy of a movie, and it’s so well-crafted, and it’s so funny, and I love what it’s about,” Hathaway added. “And I think that it holds up well, and the look of it is fantastic.”
While it’s not clear when Hathaway wants her sons to see the movie, there’s one movie that she’s not letting them view until they’re much older.
When the actor was promoting her movie, “The Witches,” in late 2020, she revealed that her children would have to wait a long time to view it because of her terrifying smile in the movie (which you can see below).
“Everybody else’s children can see it, but my kids can’t see this movie until they’re like 30 because every time I smile, they’re just going to freak,” she told People magazine at the time.
The actor took it one step further in another interview on behalf of “The Witches,” telling Access Hollywood, “I will never show my children this movie.”
She added: “If they discover it on their own, that is beyond me. I can’t let them see this.”
