Is Anne Hathaway worried that her biscuit-flash will cost her the Oscar?

Hilariously, my mother was very upset about Anne Hathaway’s beav shot last week. My mom is a big Hathaway fan – I think a lot of “moms” are, right? Moms think Annie is classy, ladylike, princess-y. They think she’s a good role model for young women. But role models aren’t supposed to flash the beav. My mother asked, “Was it on purpose? Did she want people to see? Why wasn’t she wearing her drawers? What did it look like?” Seriously, she asked all of those questions. I think a lot of asked those questions. But has the “Annie flashed the beav for her Oscar campaign” narrative been established? Or do we still want to give her the benefit of the doubt and say that she didn’t flash it on purpose? I don’t know. But “sources” claim that Anne is really worried that her beav is going to cost her an Oscar!!

Anne Hathaway, 30, is known as classy, elegant actress, so everyone was shocked when she decided to go commando and embarrassingly exposed her bare crotch at the NYC premiere of Les Misérables on Dec. 1o. A source close to the situation tells that Anne is afraid that this momentary mishap may have a lasting impact.

“She’s been fighting all of her life to be seen as a ‘serious’ actress, and this could make older stars see her as just another Hollywood ‘pop tart’, like Lindsay Lohan.”

Not only is Anne fearful of losing her reputation as a serious actress, she’s also worried that the malfunction will swipe her chances for an Oscar.

According to the source, “Anne is really hoping for an Oscar for Les Misérables, and she’s worried that this misstep will hurt her credibility as an actress.”

The source points out one reason Anne is so distraught over her commando catastrophe is because she is afraid it has cast a shadow over a project that is very special to her.

“The nudity doesn’t bother her — she’s been naked on camera before — but this musical has meant so much to her and her family [her mother acted in it]. She would hate for such a misstep to derail her in the eyes of Academy voters.”

The source adds, “In all, it would be a shame if this is true, because she’s brilliant in the role.”

Whether or not it was a stunt, I do think Anne’s poor beav probably did hurt her. I think a lot of Academy voters think like my mom – Anne is classy and ladylike, and “she should know better.” Plus, I think Anne handled it the wrong way, sort of. I think more people would have liked to see her laugh it off, you know? It’s JUST a beav. It’s not like she got all coked up and punched someone. It’s not like a DUI. It’s not like she screamed at some extra. She just went commando under an ugly gown. No biggie.

Here are some photos of Anne arriving at the Chateau Marmont yesterday. Considering the way she’s dressed, I’m assuming she was there to do press for Les Miserables (as opposed to going to the Marmont to act like a crackie). Note the way Anne exists the car. No beav shots!! Well done.

    Not an issue with the voters. Jessica Chastain is the issue.

  2. LadyMTL says:

    Really now, if people are still talking about Anne’s beav in two weeks, it’ll be because she herself won’t shut up about it. I already forgot that it happened, tbh, and the Academy votes aren’t exactly due today.

    • erika says:

      good lord i agree, shutup! anne!

      and no…..darling, you’re not lindsay lohan! don’t flatter yourself!

      ya should have known better, and duhh….i don’t know how many times she goes commando but i know myself (for me i mean!!!) and durrr…dahhh….If i were in a slinky slit up to my madge vadge badge, getting out of a car w/ my disabled veteran shoe on one foot and paps shoving their cameras at me…i would talk myself through it gracefully…

      but….SHUTUP! you are making this into a snowstorm! we don’t care and i don’t think a lotta pervs wanna even see you madge badge…sorry…..

    • OutstandingWoldCitizen says:

      Agreed! She should just up and act as if it never happened. She is such a consummate professional she did not let the slip stop her from walking the red carpet.

      I like Anne. I think she is talented and her looks have grown on me. PLUS she is from my hometown. That said, I really do not understand the hate but whatever. I believe she is freaked only b/c she does not want to be on the infamous beave flash list: Cracken (it me a second to figure out who you all were talking about, Love this nickanem:), Britney, Paris, right?

      Ann is classy. If the academy is that straight laced/stuffy, there would be no awards given out or show period. Nominees and awardees have done way worse and with intent. Just saying. :)

  3. Amy says:

    The Oscar wasn’t hers to begin with. Sally Field’s performance in Lincoln is very strong and she’s an old favorite who’s made a comeback. Plus, Les Miz is getting panned by some critics. One compared Anne’s performance to “channeling Liza Minnelli.” So whatever. Anne’s so insufferable that I don’t really care.

  4. Riana says:

    This is gonna sound mean out of context but, who even gets that excited about Anne Hathaway’s vagina?

    Seriously. I hope it doesn’t derail her though I wasn’t really pulling for her before either way. Just seems stupid, no wonder everyone plasters on fake smiles and sells themselves to the Academy for 6 months.

  5. emmie_a says:

    “What did it look like?” I loved that your mom asked that question. That’s hilarious!

  6. Chatcat says:

    How I feel it is: Every action has a consequence…good or bad, going panty less when you know you’re going to be papped a zillion times and getting in and out of a vehicle…has consequences.

    How it is: The fact that Les Miserables has been remade so many times in the last 30 years you can only take so much of the characters over and over and over…so why her.

  7. Mew says:

    She’s the one who keeps constantly bringing it up.

    • lisa2 says:

      You’re right.

      I think the problem for her maybe is that nobody really cares. I don’t hear anyone I know talking about it. Hell Angelina’s leg got way more attention. And that was a freaking leg.

      Anne is a good actress but she makes everything bigger then it is or needs to be. Just relax and let whatever happens in your career happen. If you look at a lot of the past Oscar winners a huge number of them don’t have what you call hot careers. I think for many the nomination has been the biggest push to their careers then the actual win.

    • Amanda Huggenkiss says:

      Really? I’m unaware of her bringing it up at all.

      • Pretty Hate Machine says:

        I never post in the comments section, but I must de-lurk to proclaim that no, Anne Hathaway HAS NOT learned how to exit a vehicle like a lady. If what she had on in the above picture had been shorter and she had no knickers on, you would’ve still seen her lady bits. That is not the way to exit an automobile. Legs and knees together completely, swivel/turn, place both feet on the ground, still keeping your knees firmly together, then stand up. I’m willing to bet she’s flashed her biz countless times; she’s just more famous these days and it’s news. For heavens sake, there are etiquette tutors out there. I’ll hush now and try to get her mock chagrin out of my mind from here on out.

      • KC says:

        These are all from within 24 hours. I don’t know if she’s talked about it after the Today Show though. (And I don’t care enough to look, I just already knew of an article that had these three in it.)

        Page Six: “I found out [about the pictures] just as I came in,” she was overheard saying to sympathetic guests at a Four Seasons restaurant luncheon for the film yesterday. “And I just thought, ‘OK, where’s the comedy?’ ” She added, “It has hit. It has landed. A bomb has gone off. I think what I am going to do is whatever my next appearance is . . . I’m going to step out of the car in a blanket. You’ve got to laugh at it.”

        Via NY Daily News: “I was getting out of the car and my dress was so tight that I didn’t realize it until I saw all the photographers’ flashes,” she told Vanity Fair writer Ingrid Sischy.
        “It was devastating. They saw everything. I might as well have lifted up my skirt for them.”

        TODAY: “It was obviously an unfortunate incident,” she said. “It kind of made me sad on two accounts. One was that I was very sad that we live in an age when someone takes a picture of another person in a vulnerable moment and rather than delete it, and do the decent thing, sells it. And I’m sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies sexuality of unwilling participants, which brings us back to ‘Les Mis,’ that’s what my character is, she is someone who is forced to sell sex to benefit her child because she has nothing and there’s no social safety net.”

      • GoodCapon says:

        Pretty Hate Machine

        I think that was what she was aiming for. She was trying to exit the car properly (instead of the usual one leg out of the car first, followed by the other leg) but she made a TERRIBLE execution of it.

      • Amanda huggenkiss says:

        Responding to a question, or discussing in private, is not “bringing it up”. The media, and folks here, seem to have that compulsively addressed, however.

  8. gabriella says:

    Did you see her response to creepy matt lauer about the incident? She basically said that this kind of culture that turns a woman’s sex into a commodity is reminiscent of what fantine underwent. Look it up. She handled it with class.

    • lisa2 says:

      I actually thought her response to the question a bit over the top. I just mean equating it to prostitution. She was nude in that movie with Jake; Love and Other Drugs. Most of the promotion talk was all about that nudity and the sex scenes. So now she is so sensitive to it. Yeah I get one was a movie and the other real life. My thing is if I go out and don’t wear a bra or panties.. I take the risk of something slipping or an up skirt. Or someone seeing something I don’t want shown.

      Which is why I wear underwear.

      • Gabriella says:

        I’m really pretty fed up with everyone asking why she couldn’t wear underwear. She was wearing a gown- it shouldn’t have been an issue. Not everyone likes to wear underwear and that isn’t a big deal. This wasn’t a Paris Hilton Britney Spears mini dress situation, it was a case of bad timing and lack of anticipation. As far as overstating it- have you ever had pictures of your private areas snapped and distributed across the world in a frenzy? I can only begin to Imagine the humiliation and feelings of violation.

      • lisa2 says:

        Anne knows the paps are there. I never said I blamed her for the evasive picture and I never said she did it on purpose. I have seen those comments.

        But every female actress knows that when they get out of a car the paps are there to snap that moment. Which is why you see some male partners standing in front of their partners to block the shot. My comment was about what I do. I didn’t attack Anne. But I stand by what I said. I can sympathize with her feelings. But Anne does make everything earth shattering. If she shrugged it off it would stop people that didn’t know and trust there are lots of people that didn’t know from being curious and going to search for the pictures.

        Look I could name any number of other female celebrities that if this had happened to them it would have been on National News and the breaking story for Months. That is nor did happen to Anne.

      • emmie_a says:

        Gabriella: Yes, she could have worn underwear! She was wearing a dress with a slit up the front so there was a possibility of seeing something.
        And if one doesn’t want to be humiliated or violated… wear underwear! It’s that simple.

      • Violet says:


        Anne was wearing a BORROWED gown so, yes, she absolutely should’ve worn underwear as a matter of basic courtesy and hygiene.

        Plus if she’s going to be so foolish as to go commando at an event where she’s going to papped then she should be extra careful when getting out of the car.

        Moreover, Anne’s not doing herself any favors by not taking responsibility for this situation. She’s old enough to know that actions have consequences.

    • T.C. says:

      Her response on the Today show was ridiculous. Going out commando in a high slit dress by choice where you know photographers are taking your picture is not in any way close to a poor woman forced into prostitution to feed her child. That’s what I would expect the Cracken to say. Deflect and blame someone else.

  9. Stuart Horsely says:

    Another site said that “Anne Hathaway won’t stop talking about Anne Hathaway’s vagina.” Yep. Why is it so difficult to wear a pair of underwear when you know you have to exit a car with the paps right there? Totally mystified at this.

  10. Ms Kay says:

    So basically she couldn’t put a thong underneath because?.?.?

  11. Vesper Lynd says:

    Yep, most people were so desensitized to crotch pictures after Britney’s, Lilo’s and Paris’ ones that Anne is just one more to the growing collection. So boring and calculated it is almost predictable. Who will be the next “cooties spreader” flasher? Ben Affleck? LOL how about a male for a change? I can see the headlines: “zipper malfunction reveals Affleck’s phobia of boxers”…”Garner denies tampering with Ben’s pant zippers, blames it on JLo and Lively”…”lil’ Seraphina puts her Fiskar’s scissors to good use on Ben’s pants for preschool puppet project”.

  12. Aubra says:

    She’s the pertentious art student in highcshool that thought everything contreversial was “brilliant”…I hate her

  13. Word says:

    She seems really desperate for an Oscar. Looking @ the history of past winners it really doesn’t seem to do much for you careerwise. Is it so bad to just enjoy making good films & play diverse characters & get paid a sh*tload of money must you have an Oscar to validate yourself? I don’t get actors. I hope she doesn’t win

    • flor says:

      You are so right! Melissa Leo did not become an overnight sensation after her win, if anything, she got more work.
      I think it’s more because young actors just want the fame. HAve you noticed that all the younger crop have not taken acting classes? None of them. It’s sad when you think about it.

      • carrie says:

        Anne Hathaway did some acting/singing/dancing class
        “She spent several semesters studying as an English major and Women’s Studies minor at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York before transferring to New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study, referring to her college enrollment as one of her best decisions, because she enjoyed being with others who were trying to “grow up.” Hathaway was the first teenager admitted into The Barrow Group Theater Company’s acting program.”
        from her IMDB

      • flor says:

        carrie- my bad, I did not explain that I do not consider Annie to be “young” but an actual “movie” adult (if that’s a thing). She plays adults. I was talking about the crop of “it” girls and boys. None of them have taken acting classes. It’s disturbing. Actually, I think Annie is one of the few of her generation that has theater training, which I love and respect. However, I do not think she is more talented than the rest. With the exception of her I Dreamed A Dream, the rest of the clips from Les Miserables are medicore at best and her performances seem the same in all of her movies. Like, in Batman when Christian Bale catched her stealing she does the same stuff that she does in that LEs Mis clip when she is getting fired: she puts that smug face and apologizes. UGH.

      • stellalovejoydiver says:

        I think every generation of actors has those who are in it for fame and money and those who really care about acting, regardless whether they underwent training or not.
        Elizabeth Olsen studied Acting at NYU Tisch school, but dropped out after getting cast in MMMM, Mia Wasikoskwa is untrained, but if you look at her projects it is clear she is not only in it for fame. Carey Mulligan actually got rejected from drama school.
        Sometimes actors first have to get some kind of commercial success and name recognition before they get cast in a challenging role.

    • holly hobby says:

      If she’s smart, she would hope she doesn’t get an Oscar because almost every single female (with Meryl the exception of course) Oscar winner’s relationship went bust right after they won the big one. I think some news report did a coincidental story about this last year: Sandy Bullock, Halle Berry, Helen Hunt, Charlize Theron comes to mind.

  14. lisa2 says:

    Just had to say I LOVE HER OUTFIT in the second picture.

    I hate the dress and boots.

  15. Jenna says:

    LOL. I kinda hopes so. Not that it was hers to begin with, but…still. Gosh, I’m such a bitch. -sigh- Ah, well. :D

  16. C Money says:

    I had forgotten about her cooch. Who cares? I think she will take that Oscar because she is young. Then she’ll be flashin’ her cooze all over town!!!!

  17. bluhare says:

    If that photo alone can cost her the Oscar then they’re a bigger joke than I thought they were.

  18. Happymom says:

    She is the drama queen to end all drama queens. Remember the whining over her hair cut? I mean, chill out.

    • normades says:

      She’s a total diva. It’s gotta be all about her all the time.

    • Annie says:

      I usually like her but yeah, I wish she’d calm down over this whole Les Mis/Oscar Campaigne thing. OMG! I cut my hair and cried for days! OMG! I didn’t eat for 2 whole weeks! My crotch shot was a national disaster! How Devastating!

      She’s going to be so upset if she doesn’t win, when at the end of the day it seems that Oscars never really make or break a career anyway.

    • gg says:

      In her defense, try chopping literally all your hair off and see how you feel about it. It’s not pretty and takes years to even cover your ears. I frankly don’t blame her for freaking out about it. Takes guts to chop off all your long pretty hair. Don’t ever underestimate it.

      • lisa2 says:

        I’ve chopped mine off before. Almost bald.

        She was not forced to cut her hair. To my knowledge she was not grabbed and thrown to the ground and her hair cut by force. She is not the only actress in the world to cut her hair for a role. BY CHOICE. There are countless of other women that did it before and will do so after. If it was that devastating she could have just worn a wig.

        I’m sure she probably regretted it and that is the emotional drama. But to act as if she was forced to do it is just wrong.

      • Annie says:

        Well, I have Miley Cyrus’s haircut right now and my hair hasn’t been past my shoulders since I was 10 or so( I feel fug when my hair starts getting too long), so can’t personally feel much sympathy here!

        And yeah, if she hated the very thought of short hair, it could have easily have been faked. Anne knows the Acadamy LOVE a physical transformation though.

      • La Calabaza says:

        It takes years to grow past the ears????!!!!Come on!!! Six months at most. I had chemo 6 years ago. I lost all my hair. Once it started growing it took 6/7 months to feel myself again. At the end of the day, its just chopping your hair not losing an arm or anything vital. Hair grows for god’s sake!

      • gg says:

        I had chemo three years ago, and it took me until this winter to finally have warm ears outside in the wind. I hated it, personally (obviously). My hair grew back slower than yours.

      • holly hobby says:

        She isn’t the first one who got shorn. Natalie Portman and Charlize Theron got a close shave and they haven’t said anything to the press. Annie was talking about her hair or lack thereof ad nauseum.

        Also, it was reported in the press that the producers were perfectly happy to let her wear a wig but Annie blurted that she can get a close shave so that’s how that went down. So no, I don’t feel sorry for her and I don’t think she deserves an Oscar for the ugliest haircut in America. Her singing – if you watched the Les Miz concerts on PBS, you would know her singing isn’t up to par with the stage actresses.

  19. Mayday says:

    wear a thong with that type of dress, you idiot.

  20. skuddles says:

    Bet she won’t forget to wear her undies next time :)

  21. Talie says:

    She just seems so damn serious to me…she needs to chill the F out!

  22. gg says:

    Eh, tell it to LeAnne Crimes. Maybe she’ll stop exposing her boobs on purpose.

  23. La Calabaza says:

    Please, Santa, i’ve been good this year. Make her go away!

  24. hayley says:

    she never had a chance anyway, so I’d say it didnt really hurt her.

  25. BengalCat2000 says:

    I get exhausted just reading a short interview with her. Girlfriend needs a xanax as big as her ego.

  26. Runs with Scissors says:

    C,mon, you guys know how hard it is to have a PEE in a dress like that, trying to keep your dress out of the toilet while you try to get your undies down one handed…THAT’S probably why she opted out of the underwear.

    She probably figured it’s a long dress and it just wouldn’t be an issue to go commando.

    And sorry, but this feels like a little victim blaming. There were a hundred f*cking creeps TRYING to give her a photographic “pap” smear.

    If tabs (and we) didn’t pay a fortune to see her cooch, then this wouldn’t be an issue. Like she said, paps should just do the right thing and delete shots like that.

    Also, yes, she’s a bit over the top, but she’s talented and kind, so I’ll take her over many many others. I don’t get the constant harping on her.

  27. Bowers says:

    When did these people quit wearing underwear again?

  28. Jayna says:

    All the people that said it was on purpose floored me. This girl wants an Oscar. She wants to be an artiste, taken seriously so badly she can taste it. Shes an A-List movie star. Do you really think she ever wanted to be lumped in Lindsay Lohan/Paris Hilton/Britney Spears hot mess, reality TV, gossip-site joke territory during this Oscar campaign?

  29. Annie says:

    I like Annie but I’m cynical, like Kaiser said. There’s no way that knowing how the papz are and how many starlets have been taken upskirts of she didn’t know that 1) underwear is a must, 2) how to get out of a car like a lady is a must. You lock your legs together and get out of the car. Not leg by leg. I refuse to believe women don’t know how to do this. Etiquette, guys. For your own good. People are a-holes.

    Not wearing underwear is skanky, unhyginic and not very lady like. Sorry, Anne. But this was a bad move and I just don’t believe it was an accident because at this point you should know.

  30. LaLa2 says:

    My take on it is this: If you’re wearing pants or a jump suit to a premiere then I would say whatever, go commando. No biggie. But it is so different when it comes to a dress. Short or long, flat or puffy. There are so many things that can go wrong with a dress (it hikes up, the wind blows it up, it snags and rips, etc.) When Lohan and Paris Hilton do it, it’s no big deal, because they are just hot messes who don’t give a damn one way or another. But Annie, you’re a smart girl. Common sense.

    As for her Oscar chances. She is almost guaranteed a lock for a nomination, but not a win. It will depend on how the results go for the awards.

  31. Chordy says:

    This is also why John Hamm didn’t get a Golden Globe nomination. Like, how stupid does he have to be to go out with no underwear? I mean, he KNOWS he’s going to get photographed, so it’s just proof that he’s a stupid idiot and has nothing to do with his personal choices. I mean he doesn’t look classy, and I’m like constantly worried about which dudes look classy. I can’t respect someone who doesn’t respect himself.

  32. kayla says:

    For everyone who thinks its okay to not underwear in public with a dress or skirt please wear underwear!! Not just for your modesty but for everyone health and sanitation !What if you have some sort of a lady accident and next person sits or touches where you where sitting?!? gross!

  33. lisa2 says:

    Thinking ahead to the first Award show and all the announced nominees.. I just thought that there have been some really good films. Some got recognized and others overlooked. Just like performances; some great ones have and will be acknowledged, others over looked. But I may be in the minority but despite the great films/actors and such. This just feels like it is going to be the most BORING AWARD SEASON IN A LONG TIME.

    there are really talented people nominated but OMGosh I feel like I’m going to be bored senseless watching the RC/Interviews/Show.. It is already a snooze fest and the shows have not even started.

  34. Izzy says:

    Eh. I could care less about her Oscar chances, but when the story first broke about Annie’s Biscuit-Flash, I just thought when will these people learn to wear freakin’ underwear?!

    I doubt she did it on purpose, and though I haven’t seen photos, we’re talking about Anne Hathaway here. Hate her all you want, but Blohan, Paris Valtrex and other biscuit-flashers are trashy, and Anne is not.

    • Annie says:

      What’s up with these celebs not wearing underwear anyway? Is underwear considered some pleb/common as mud thing in inner fashion circles that I’m not aware of? I can’t imagine not wearing panties especially under a dress – I’d feel like some sort of snail leaving mucus trails everywhere LOL.

      • Christina says:

        What makes it all much, much worse, is that Anne probably doesn’t own that dress – chances are it’s been borrowed from the designer and will have to be returned. Aside form the fact that it’s a fugly dress, I certainly wouldn’t want to wear it after Anne’s, ahem, left her mark on it.

  35. SashaVice says:

    She has pubes! Refreshing!

  36. morgane says:

    I really hope it costs her oscar.
    I don’t like her, I think she’s annoying and pretentious

  37. The Wizz says:

    Why is she wearing a backpack with that dress?

  38. grabbyhands says:

    It’s super simple. Don;t want to give the paparazzi a beaver shot? WEAR SOME FU**ING UNDERWEAR.

  39. RomyN says:

    If you go out commando in a high slit dress and know that a lot of photographers will take pics of you then I am sure it means….you want that ALL is seen….or….you are as stupid as it goes.

  40. Carolyn says:

    Anne’s Oscar campaign has been so meticulously planned, at this point in time her agent, stylist/hair/makeup person and Anne are all sitting around a boardroom table somewhere yelling “how the hell did you (fingerpointing) let this happen” and “what the &^*^ are we going to do now” as they watch Oscar drift away and go to…? Real ladies don’t flash their lady bits. Full stop. They also wear underwear.

  41. tabasco says:

    omg, the mother’s questions remind me of being in grad school in class one evening with my girlfriends when brit’s flash happened. we were all on our laptops looking at it, giggling like idiots and IM-ing each other about it when we should’ve been listening to the lecture and taking notes. it’s all quiet except the prof and one of my friends forgets where she is and says *out loud*, “WHAT’S WRONG WITH HER COOCH? WHAT IS THAT EXTRA PIECE RIGHT THERE???”

  42. tabasco says:

    i dunno, i could see how you would go commando in some of these dresses. high drama couture + vpl = FAIL. they need to make cooch-pasties for these girls. or, if i was one of them, i would start a trend where you have a pashmina wrapped around your lower half until you are fully out of the damn car and standing upright. that would avoid the cooch flash AND the panty flash.

  43. Kosmos says:

    Hey, it’s just an accidental mishap, although a very embarrassing one. Rule number one when you’re getting out of vehicles, Legs Together ! This should in no way affect her career or nominations. I did really hate the dominatrix boot look, however, with her black dress. That didn’t help her to look any less innocent, although I say this was purely accidental.

  44. serena says:

    I don’t really know what the hell is wrong with wearing panties. If you’re ashamed then wear ‘em, that’s it.

    But I think this is just a mean to let people talk more about her, which is sad for Anne really. She is disappointing me with this try-hard Oscar campaign.

  45. WendyNerd says:

    I feel really sorry for her, I really do. But I do not get why she wasn’t wearing panties. I don’t want to slut-shame her. I think it’s unfortunate. But if the dress was showing pantie lines—- isn’t that what thongs are for? Maybe she had a good reason. There are reasons to go Commando. But that seems kind of unliely. I don’t want to think this was a stunt. it doesn’t seem like something she’d do. I do like Anne Hathaway, I think she’s had a great year, aside from this, and I’m happy for her. Seriously— before, I thought she was overrated. That she wasn’t that great an actress — and I’ve seen a good number of her movies. I always thought her career was based on the fact that she just had the good luck to be cast in good movies more than her being a particularly good at acting (I always felt she kept playing the role of “awkward supposedly ugly duckling who gets hot and finally learns what’s REALLY important” and that Rachel getting married just smelled like a vanity project). But this year, she really proved me wrong with her Catwoman. She was FANTASTIC and from what I’ve seen from her bits in Les Miz, she’s done a great job playing Fantine. So I really think she’s come really far as an actress and I would like to see her get at least a nom (if the previews are anything to go by). It would be sad if this spoils it. If she does get totally robbed for this, that’s bullshit and it’s sexist, slut-shaming bullshit. So you know what? Now I actually really want her to get at least a nomination. I didn’t care before, but now I do. (Of course, I’ll need to see the movie before I decide to TOTALLY root for her).

    She should be embarrassed from the day she presented the oscar’s…

    Hmmm, you’d think she’d be able to gauge the probability of a beaver shot better than this, non?

    She totally did that intentionally! Apparently days before Anne was ridiculed for her lack of “sexuality”! She wants to win an Oscar so badly that she will do anything to get it! And I mean come on! Who doesn’t wear underwear?!!? Her dress isn’t that clingy!

    It’s baffling to me when people say a celebrity did something to sell tickets or get a nomination. If people were going to vote for Anne a month ago I doubt they will change their mind. If somebody didn’t want to see Le Mis before the incident they aren’t going to see it after. I just don’t get the logic.

    I also think Anne sounds so self-righteous blaming the media and society for the photos. I really don’t understand not wearing underwear. Especially when wearing a dress with a high split. You’re just asking for trouble.

    That dress would not have shown any panty lines. She totally did this on purpose. I wore the shortest miniskirts ever in the 70s, the first thing we learned when exiting a car was to hold a purse over that area, problem solved.

    It wasn’t even a full-on crotch shot! It was just her pubic hair! Tempest in a friggin’ teapot!

    She looks so much like my big sis.

    I don’t think she has anything to worry about. I really don’t think something like that is going to matter. I wish she could just worry about making good movies. There are lots of people who are worthy of winning, but it can’t go to all five people who are in the category…Anyhow she has the rest of her life to win an Oscar.

    The boot-sandals, which i actually find really sexy, are Tom Ford.

    Oscar ??
    If it were given to the “best actress”, then maybe she should worry. So she does not meet the Oscar social standards??? Give me a break!! Climbing two ladders, and all she wanted is “no pantie line”.
    At least she is no longer the silly little girl who made an ass of herself before, she took this like the woman she is becoming.
