Oh, Anne Hathaway. It’s been a wild ride with you these past few years. First there was the infamous awards tour, during which the entire universe groaned so hard in unison over everything you said that I think the resulting vibrations might have moved entire mountain ranges. Then you took some time off and came back seemingly more self-aware with sad stories about how much everybody’s criticism hurt you. And I felt bad and decided to be nicer to you. But now there’s a story on TMZ about you sending your eggs back four times, and I just don’t know what to do with you anymore.
Anne was apparently shooting a Japanese commercial on the Paramount lot last week, and she ordered breakfast. Just your standard poached egg with an English muffin and avocado. (Side note: I just recently discovered that people eat avocado for breakfast and am mildly disturbed, slash sick to my stomach.) Anne was reportedly so dissatisfied with the meal that she sent it back not once, not twice, not three times, but FOUR FREAKIN’ TIMES! Here’s TMZ’s rundown of her reasons:
1st try: Poached egg too runny.
2nd try: English muffin was cold because it sat while egg #2 was being poached.
3rd try: Egg #2 cold because it sat while chef toasted muffin #2.
4th try: Egg, muffin and avocado were perfect, but it took so long she decided she was in the mood for a fried egg.
Are you kidding me? This is the kind of thing a fictional movie star would do as part of a joke about how difficult and entitled movie stars are. You’re not actually supposed to be like that in real life, Anne Hathaway! Maybe it’s because sometimes I feel demanding asking for a bottle of ketchup to go with my fries, but this is just insane to me.
The thing that makes this whole thing even more insane is that, since she was on set, this food was likely free to her. If she were paying for it in a restaurant, I would still think it was rude, but even more so when it’s being given to her free of charge. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth, Anne Hathaway. Especially if you don’t want the public’s Hathahate levels to spike. No wonder nobody wants to join your book club.
