Anderson Cooper is by far my favorite silver fox on cable television news. I absolutely adore him and nothing will ever change that. But I must admit his recent, vehement defense of Anne Hathaway has left a bad taste in my mouth. I don’t know if it’s because I hate disagreeing with my main S.F. or because I’m now confused about gay men and what celebrities they hate, but it was all fun and games until he indirectly dissed Jennifer Lawrence:
“Your bitterness over Anne Hathaway makes no sense and is completely irrational and you’re like, ‘Oh that other actress fell and she’s so sweet.’ You don’t think that fall was rehearsed?”
While that last part was a joke, I wanted to give Anderson a big “Oh HELL naw” when he brought up everyone’s favorite person in the entire world in a negative way. I don’t know what happened to Anne Hathaway’s appeal since The Princess Diaries and Rachel Getting Married, but I think it has something to do with her recent attendance at the Taylor Swift Academy Of Fake Insincerity And Guffaw-Golly-Gee, where she apparently majored in wide-eyed lash-batting and adorable gratitude.
Props to Anderson for defending his beliefs in a meaningless debate, he brought up valid points. She’s really not completely insufferable or terrible. But comparing her to Jennifer Lawrence? Bitch, please. (I still love you infinite amounts though.)
