Is Anne Hathaway preparing to debut her baby bump at the Oscars?

Anne Hathaway has been much discussed and much analyzed here and all over the blogs and entertainment media. Some of the discussion is fair, in my opinion (her fashion, her interviews, her acceptance speeches are all up for public discourse), while some of it seems somewhat unfair (hit pieces on how she’s incredibly annoying, etc). I don’t know where pregnancy speculation falls – is it fair game because she’s GUSH GUSH gushing about her marriage and because she’s wearing abdomen-disguising dresses and gowns, or should we not talk about it because ew, gross, and it’s her business?

The thing is, I get the feeling that Anne wants us to talk about her womb and the state of it. I think she actually is pregnant or trying to get pregnant or she will be pregnant very soon. I think she’s been choosing her gowns with the intention of getting us to bump-monger (credit: The Fug Girls) her. And these photos seem like further evidence of that. First of all: WHITE SKINNY JEANS. Again. If you have the audacity to marry a man who wears white skinny jeans, you’ll probably let him knock you up too. Second of all – Anne and her husband were coming from the doctor’s office, as every photo agency is noting, and Anne is the one who gave blood! Look at her arm – see the pink band-aid? Yep. So… is she knocked up already? And if she is, will she announce her pregnancy Beyonce-style on the stage as she accepts her Oscar?

Also: Have you watched this hilarious parody of Anne’s performance of “I Dreamed a Dream”? It’s a spoof video called “For Your Consideration” which stars an actress named Emma Fitzpatrick doing a dead-on Annie impression. And the re-write of the song is pretty great too!

PS… I know it’s try-hard for a daily papping, but I have to admit that I love Anne’s maxi dress. It’s great!

    the last few pictures should have their own tumblr. like “AnnE Hathaway Pointing At Things”.

    • RocketMerry says:

      Ssshhhhhhhhhhhh!! DO NOT give her ideas! You KNOW she totally reads online posts about herself; I just hope she does not read your comment or we’ll be drowning in nausetingly saccarine AnnE pictures in a few hours.

      Sigh. BTW, she is totally fueling the “preggo-no-preggo” issue for dear ol’Oscar’s sake.
      I do love that maxi dress, though.

      Ooh, post-videowatching edit: That video is pure gold. The actress is amazing at miming AnnE’s manners and her voice is super! “In one take, bitches!” LOL

      • Amelia says:

        That video totally made my day. She’s got a gorgeous voice on her.
        Is it too late to get her to swap places with Anne? Maybe tinker with the credits and put her on the red carpet at the Oscars instead?
        Ugh. I used to like Anne but I find her insufferable at the moment. Her campaign is basically ‘GIMME GIMME GIMME, I’M SO HUMBLE, GIMME!’
        For those who paid attention during the 2010/11 (?) awards season, whose campaign would you say was worse; Anne or Natalie Portman?

      • Polk8dot says:

        The spoof video is PRICELESS!

        This girl, Emma, WOW….
        And yet, with all the over-acting, the exagerrated expressions, the ‘heart wrenching’ over-self-indulged vocal production, she is still SOOOOOOOOOO much more pallatable than Ann-E with an E could ever be.
        F-ing poseur, our Annie is.
        Geez, if she wins the Oscar, I’ll need a puke basket handy to get thru her ‘speach performance’. The silver lining – waiting for another spoof, this time of Ann-E’s award shows speaches ;)

      • Gin Genie says:

        @ Amelia

        AnnE Hathaway. By orders of magnitude Annie has had by far the most annoying oscar campaign of any actress ever. She may end up with an Oscar, but I for one will not pay to see this annoying wench in any of her future films. Before Les Mis I really wasn’t too bothered about her, but now she gets on my last nerve.

      • RocketMerry says:

        Oooh, nice poll!
        I’m voting AnnE, by a hair. If she does indeed reveal her “pregginess” at the Oscars, though, she’ll have won by a milion miles.

      • Argo says:

        Natalie Portman had the worst Oscar campaign I had ever seen. Hers was far worse then Anne. The fiancee( Who is just mooching off her), the pregancy, the so-called dancing she claimed she did. She wasn’t that great and it was Weinstein who was backing her up. Otherwise the award would have gone to someone like Annette Benning.
        Not to mention again that her husband is somehow consider a celebrity because of her. How did he get a contract with YSL? He is not an actor or a singer! So ugly too.
        Annes husband is an actor/jeweler but he doens’t seem to be using connections through her. I must admit he looks better then Pormtans Bug husband.

      • mai says:

        Natalie Portman had the most annoying and self-centered campaign ever. Anne is over-exposed. But she seems close with the cast and talks about them in a very appreciative way. I like that and her husband seems really nice. I don’t even mind the skinny jeans :)

    • allons-y alonso says:

      There’s only one tumbr featuring AnnE Hathaway that I’m interested in. For your consideration, I present ‘Les Mean Girls’:

      As for this mini poll: I’m going to have to go with Portman. ! I just….can’t with her. She’s over rated as an actress and I just get a huge holier than thou vibe. As for AnnE, for the love of everything, just tone it down.

  2. Launicaangelina says:

    The way she’s working her Oscar campaign is nauseatingly annoying. She’s really milking her personal life. I don’t follow her or watch her movies so I can imagine how annoyed her fans are.

    By the way, here’s my theory. She is working do hard to make herself likable because she’s dealt with some very embarrassing things very publicly: shady, thieving ex bf and last year’s Oscar hosting gig (not her fault but still).

    Those white skinny jeans are gross. Also, it appears his pants a not buttoned or zipped properly.

  3. evie says:

    Is he carrying that money in his hand because his pants are too tight for it to fit in his pocket? Eww.

  4. Cherry says:

    Agree on the maxi dress. Love it! And I wish I was living in a country where you can walk around in one of those lovely loose summery dresses in February. Ahh.

  5. Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer says:

    That video was like a gift this morning. THANK YOU!!!

  6. Ann says:

    These two lack any sexappeal and I still have hard time buying he’s straight.

  7. A~ says:

    I know it’s not a popular opinion around here, but I love Anne Hathaway. I think she is beautiful and supremely talented.


  8. SusieQ2 says:

    Jeebus, I thought Natalie Portman was bad last year but she’s an amateur compared to AnnE.

    • T.C. says:

      Lol so true. She probably went to do a physical for her next movie but is using it to encourage pregnancy rumors. Her husband has douche written all over his face. Those tight white pants are giggle inducing.

    • mia says:

      I still think Natalie Portman’s campaign was much worse. Anne is a sweet girl, but nobody can get through this over-exposure unharmed.

    • flor says:

      All of them are the same. Jennifer Lawrence is freaking everywhere and I am getting tired. Anne, at least, is harmless and has never said anything phobic like Jennifer did and doesn’t talk about farts and her breast like Jennifer does.
      I think Natalie had it worse because her movie was really wonderful and women around the globe wanted her and Mila’s ballerina bodies so people the media would talk about them obsessionally.

      • T.C. says:

        Flor you are just a Jennifer Lawrence hater and need to get over it. She’s going to win so just start crying right now.

      • flor says:

        No, I’am not! I want JLaw to win because she’s my age and I think it would be amazing that someone so young gets recognized and I think the only reason why she wouldn’t get it it’s because of her age and that’s a shame because she was fantastic in SLP. That does not mean I like the movie as an Oscar baity film or that I cannot get tired of how overexposed she is. But I blame Weinstein for it.

      • Zozo says:

        Why is she a hater ? Because she doesn’t agree with you? I get her point. I believe Jennifer IS a good actress (as Anne). But SLP, and she this year, just went this far because Harvey Weinstein wanted. And when this guy wants something, the whole Hollywood and the press say Amen… She looks a nice girl, but her talent is constantly praised as something unique, rare. Amy Adams and Carey Mulligan are all at the same league that her. But these two aren’t “super funny” , “so down to earth” or “she’s just like us” in public. And most important, they aren’t Harvey Weinstein beloved new product, as Jennifer is. Don’t be naive my dear. The awards aren’t about talent. It is all about money and marketing.

      • fritanga says:

        Sorry; Lawrence is a genuinely good actress who may yet crash and burn but shows no indication of that now. She’s been around a lot this awards season because she’s been nominated for all Best Actress awards, but I haven’t read or seen anything about her which even remotely touches the non-stop self-aggrandizing campaigning done by Hathaway and her PR firm.

        I still like Lawrence – she’s pretty, genuinely talented, makes good career choices and doesn’t seem at all full of herself (unlike the great blithering AnnE).

  9. ds says:

    I just saw her in a film with Kate Hudson on TV and she should really put some weight. She looks much prettier when she’s not so skinny; I hate being bitchy about these things but really her head and face look so much better with just few kilos more. Please, Annie, annoy the hell out of me with your campaign just eat something

  10. la chica says:

    I hope her twee hubby is a grower bec he is not a shower…

  11. poppy says:

    oh, stephen huvane.
    he’s almost at 100% in making all of his clients either hated or disappear until people forget why they hated -insert name here- (helen hunt) in the first place. meg ryan is also on his roster and it is almost about time for her freak face to make a comeback/reappearance.
    he’ll have anne hathaway on par with goop by 2014.
    she doesn’t stands a chance unless she dumps him. never going to happen.
    i don’t know how julianne moore stays out of it. she has managed not to let him make her hated.

  12. Lolitalola says:

    Girlfriend surely loves the attention, doesn’t she ?
    Argh, she really gives me some massive Natalie Portman 2.0 vibes and I really don’t mean that in a nice way…!

  13. Jackson says:

    A maxi-dress is try-hard? LOL, to me a maxi-dress is the dress version of sweat pants. The maxi-dress is to dresses what sweat pants are to pants. But enough about her….what the actual fug with her husband and those skinny white jeans? There is so much wrong with them…and while I know zero about this dude, what he wears speaks volumes.

  14. Talie says:

    Who the hell is this guy? Does anyone know what he does?

  15. Hubbahun says:

    I spent this weekend recording my best Samuel L Jackson voice onto tape whilst reading my new best selling book – it’s called ‘Go the F**k Away’… and I dedicate it to thee, Anne with an E!

  16. lower-case deb says:

    i wonder if eAnn will sing at the Oscars, too. with all the other songs, it’ll be like the X Factor auditions (familiar songs chosen by auditionees, i mean).
    or, i guess it will be Hugh Jackman singing instead of Aenn?

  17. emmie_a says:

    Who needs a fluorescent pink arm band after blood tests?? I had a few tests last week & they took enough blood out of me to feed a vampire for a month and all I needed was a tiny band-aid. please.

  18. Miss you Enclave24 says:

    Ha! Her husband is wearing white skinny jeans. I love a man with a package too large to pack into skinny jeans.

  19. Miss Kiki says:

    I’m only just starting to like Portman again. I had assumed that the same thing would happen with AnnE’ and this time next tear I would still think she was a try hard but I’d like her again, if I have to endure her basking in Oscar glory AND going on about her pregnancy to EVERYONE, I don’t know how I’ll cope.

  20. erika says:

    I’m so happy for Anne, her true love hubby appears to be as annoying as she is! True love trumps all!

    Those skin tight, squeeze yer balls so you become infertile white jeans are SUCH a GREAT LOOK!

    I saw that spoof, she’s dead on. Just take it down a notch Anne, maybe Katie Holmes should host SNL and do a spoof on ANNE’s blow-jobbing-ass-kissing-for-an-Oscar campaign.

  21. ms.steel says:

    Ugh. most annoying face of all time. followed now by her wee hubby.

  22. Eleonor says:

    I love maxi dresses like that, too bad I am too short for them, I look like a sack if I wear one.

  23. bns says:

    She’s annoying as all hell, but she looks amazing in these candids. Her hair, the maxi dress. Love.

  24. Ms Kay says:

    AnnE : I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I do have money. But what I do also have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very lucky career. Skills that make me a annoying nightmare for people like you. If you remove that spoof video, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.

    Emma : Good Luck. [hangs up on AnnE face]

  25. the original bellaluna says:

    I do LOVE a good maxi-dress!! :) As far as Anne, I used to really kind of dig her, but she’s become annoying as of late.

    Must be the over-exposure.

  26. tmbg says:

    She is getting to be absolutely ridiculous. Did you see this article with photos of her wearing a scarf around her face? Why would she do that except for either attention or she had work done?

    At least Natalie faded from the spotlight after her win. Maybe Anne will do the same.

  27. Lizzie K says:


    (pausE for brEath)


    lovE the vidEo!!!!!!

  28. claire says:

    Yikes – Anne is a thin woman, but her husband looks pretty frail next to her!

  29. islandwalker says:

    Can we give Emma Fitzpatrick the Oscar instead? Dead on impression and great voice. Anne’s husband is a wee little thing isn’t he?

  30. KellyinSeattle says:

    Anne, Anne, Anne. We all know who you are; please go away.

  31. taxi says:

    Even in SoCal, guys don’t wear white skinnies in winter. Khakis, yes.

  32. Patrice says:

    No doctor’s office I have been to in my entire life-and there have been plenty-ever puts a GIANT pink bandage on your arm after getting a tiny little blood test-it’s either the gauze w/medical tape or a flesh toned BandAid. But! Those obviously wouldn’t have garnered Annie any attention from waiting paps so…

    I don’t think Anne is pregnant yet but I do think she VERY much wants people to speculate about it or believe she is which is nuts! I truly think she is a fabulous actress-Rachel Getting Married & The Dark Knight Rises are two of my all time faves :) -but since Oscar season began, it would seem that she’s a fabulous actress in her real life as well: the not so undercover famewhoring (that b*sh slip was no accident); courting the paps all of a sudden for the very first time; all that feigned “oh my gosh”-ness and over the top emoting on stage and the red carpet, (remember the crazy pic with poor Amanda Seyfried?)

    Just from observing how ridiculously over the top she is with everything, I would put money on the fact that she’s an exhausting Charlotte York type in her private life. Can’t you ladies just see her decorating a full nursery long before she’s even actually pregnant?! Lol. I kind of want to feel for this Adam guy but, he chose to marry her…

  33. lady X says:

    What is with the giant wad of cash he is carrying around in public?? … someone could rob him !!! LOL

  34. Chelsea's handler says:

    Career wise she’s in her prime. I don’t know why she’d want have a baby now. Dumb move.

  35. ycnan says:

    I just really don’t have a problem with someone wanting an award, working hard for it and then trying to get it. I didn’t get the big deal last year with Natalie either.

  36. Dutch says:

    Didn’t she say in some interview and/or awards speech during this run that she’s “unemployed” with no projects on the horizon? Sounded to me then that she might have been climbing aboard he baby makin’ train.

  37. brincalhona says:

    Annoying Oscar campaign for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, said part is in a musical, and pregnancy bump? Flashbacks to CZJ.

  38. Swax says:

    Is that a stack of cash in white skinnys jeans hands?
    Also, LOVE the dress

  39. Peta says:

    I doubt she’s pregnant, she’s going to want to capitalize on her post-Oscar buzz once she has it. But these staged photo ops certainly make it appear as if she is or trying to be. We are smarter than that though :) I do like her look here, love the black maxi and it looks as if she’s got some vintage platforms on.

    One thing I don’t understand: does she EVER go anyplace by herself? She’s never photographed without her husband, ever. Lainey called her out for this last week– who are Anne’s friends? Does she ever go out for coffee, lunch with them? She also pointed out how strange she’s been with her husband, how she gushes on about him, how oddly she’s presented him to people at awards shows. In some photos I’ve seen she hangs all over him, yet in others strangely ignores him (eg. GG after parties). Whatevs. I’m still hopeful for a calmer and humbler Anne at the Baftas and Oscars.

    Btw when is the Oscar voting window, next week? I thought I read it closes by the 18th. Not a lot of time to announce and capitalize on a pregnancy.

  40. Turd Fergussen says:

    Can we talk about how stupid her husband looks in his white nuthuggers?


  41. Meowmixxy says:

    AnnE looks like she is out shopping with her best gay.

  42. Snowpea says:

    Ummmm, if this guy’s not gay, my name isn’t Snowpea (it’s actually not, but that’s another story : )

    Also, is there a giant factory all producing these blonde, preppy grifter types?

    These geezer looks like he came off the same factory line as Drew Barrymore’s and Jessica Simpson’s hubby.

  43. GoodCapon says:

    I remember linking that video here when it only had 8k views. Now it has 700,000!

  44. The Original Mia says:

    I don’t think she’s pregnant, but she might be getting ready for a new role. Not a big deal.

    I love the maxi dress. Not loving those skinny jeans at all. Looks ridiculous on a grown man.

  45. ruby says:

    That video is amazing ! Really spot on, and that actress has one pretty amazing pair of lungs, I’m impressed !

    As for AnnE’s campaign, I’m firmly in the “AnnE is way more annoying than Natalie was” camp.

    Lastly, I am shocked at how much her husband looks like a child in those photos ! He should really change his style to try and hide that fact, instead of emphasizing it with white skinny jeans and tennis shoes.

  46. Bellalis says:

    No ooscar! no baby! no husband! He must be running for the hills!!!!!!!!!!

  47. Onyx XV says:

    She really likes feminine looking men!

  48. cara says:

    he has no man bulge at all,and hips like a girl
