Is Anne Hathaway going to star in a Broadway revival of ‘Cabaret’?

Here are some new photos of Anne Hathaway arriving at LAX this weekend (the ones where she’s wearing blue jeans) and attending a birthday party in Hollywood (the all-white outfit). When Anne arrived at LAX, TMZ’s photographers/videographers pursued her and Anne didn’t want to talk to them, so she jumped into the first SUV she saw. It was not hers. But she still didn’t get out – she asked the complete stranger driving the SUV if she could stay there until her car came. TMZ has the video here. They were probably going to ask her about how she’s a terrible pothead who eats solids. The scandal!

Meanwhile, have you heard the rumors that Annie is going to be on Broadway? There are some stories going around about yet another revival of Cabaret, with Annie in the Sally Bowles role played by Liza Minnelli in the film, and perhaps Alan Cumming returning to the role originated (in the movie) by Joel Grey. Cumming has already been there, done that with Cabaret – and he won a Tony for the last revival he took part in. Anne’s publicist denies that she’s in talks to do the revival, but I kind of don’t believe that. I think it would be an interesting project for her to undertake, and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if she considered it.

But! Showbiz 411 claims that Anne has just signed on to do an independent film called SongOne which will begin production soon. Anne won’t be singing, but she’ll play the girlfriend of a rock star and she’ll costar with Irish musician Johnny Flynn. Sounds like an interesting project, I guess. I thought she would be doing more blockbusters or something.

    This is what she’s being groomed for, after all.

    AnnE’s Hair Is growing in nicely, This Is all Ive got for her

    She would be perfect in Cabaret. No matter what you think of her, she’s an excellent and talented performer.

  4. Annie says:

    I wonder what is going through her mind though… She got her Oscar but lost her likability. What will the strategy be now? Hide for a bit like Natalie Portman did? Has she had PR crisis meetings?

    I’m one of those people who disliked her because of her entire demeanor during awards season. And just to think how much people liked her as Catwoman. She could’ve been more well liked but then Les Miz happened. She won her Oscar but people were so annoyed by her.

    I heard from someone who worked in The Princess Diaries 2 that she’s not very easy going or friendly in real life. She’s always been kind of a diva, and back then she was not very social with her castmates. She just could not be bothered to get to know anyone. Like, they would all go partying together or to dinners during the filming of the movie, but she never ever joined them despite everyone asking her to. Like, she took herself way too seriously even then and she would not mingle with anyone (mind you this was not the crew, but the cast!). In the end she made everyone dislike her because she just would not try to be friendly at all and they all got the feeling that she looked down on them. Like “I’m the star, you C-listers! Me hanging out with you??”

      Or maybe she’s just a quiet sort who prefers evenings in, catching up with her friends and family, and getting her rest to schmoozing. I’m not an Anne fan, but I get the sense that she’s probably a good friend and decent person who is just awkward in social situations and isn’t good at faking it, which is partly why she comes off as try-hard.

    She looks great in these photos!

    I think Broadway’s a good choice for Hathaway. She’s a good actress who does not deal well with the whole Hollywood thing. Hopefully she’ll eat more solids and generally calm down if she goes the Broadway route.

  7. Hakura says:

    Maybe after winning that award, she doesn’t feel as though she has to ‘prove herself’ with every project she does, so can experiment away from big major productions & explore the artistic/challenging roles in smaller productions.

  8. Karen says:

    She needs to take a roll away from music. Between singing at the Oscars the last two years and les mis backlash she needs a fresh start. Gf of musician (she’ll totally sing at least three bars in the movie) or broadway musical will pigeon hole her. She’s a great actress she needs to remind people of her range.

  9. Mia 4S says:

    Isn’t she signed for Christopher Nolan’s Intersteller?

    That’s about as blockbuster as it gets!

    Johnny Flynn is English, for the record!

    “No. Do not sit in my car.”

  12. tripmom says:

    I think Broadway is a perfect move for Anne Hathaway, but Cabaret? Really? Sally Bowles spends half the show in lingerie, and Anne Hathaway has all the sex appeal of a wet blanket. I think she’s a terrible fit for that role.

  13. lisa says:

    i dont care for her voice. but she will be easier to ignore in a play than in a movie.

  14. ha says:

    i don’t care about the boardway shows so does that mean i won’t see/hear her in the news for a while? then that’s great news!

  15. Sumodo1 says:

    Liza Minelli was never know for having a great body. However, Anne might fall back on her “Princess Klutz” mannerisms and nobody wants to see THAT, let alone her body in lingerie.

  16. Aria says:

    She has one of the worse celebrity style. She doesn’t know how to dress.

    As for Cabaret, she’s not sexy enough.

  17. alibeebee says:

    WHY SHE CANT SING and the Hollywood/ broadway types are lying to her if they say she can. Les mis was horrible for me because of her sucky voice.. ugh!

  18. KellyinSeattle says:

    I watched her this weekend on Saturday Night Live…very disappointing; the show is going downhill!

  19. I Choose Me says:

    Ooh I love her hair in these pics.

  20. Thora says:

    No surprises there. She’s been channelling Liza Minnelli for ages now

  21. Mandy says:

    Can anyone tell what kind of drink she is carrying? It looks kind of interesting. It’s probably like $100 for a bottle but I’m just curious.

      The vineyard is Buttonwood Vineyard in Solvang, CA which is in the Central Coast of California. It is a out 40 miles south of Paseo Robles which is the “new” wine country in CA. Buttonwood is a pretty respectable winery and not too expensive. By the color of their logo, I hazard the guess it is their Grenache which is probably pretty good because I think the young wines are still the strength of the Central Coast.

    SMILE ffs! Les Miserables alright!

    Hathaway is too young to play Sally Bowles.
