Anne Hathaway has been making the late night talkshow rounds this week to promote her new movie, One Day (did you see her rapping in the style of Lil' Wayne on Conan?)—but she goes real in-depth in this interview with Chelsea Handler. Some choice quotes:
On Snooki: "I like to watch MTV for escapist pleasure, but when I saw Snooki, I saw my twin. I couldn't lose myself in the show anymore because there I was."
On New Jersey: "My feeling about growing up in New Jersey was, 'How come I'm not in New York?' The other thing I want to say about Jersey is they need to get on the New York bandwagon and legalize gay marriage."
On becoming Catwoman: "I turned to YouTube... and got a National Geographic video on cats."
On Ayn Rand: "Whether or not you agree with Ayn Rand—and I have certain issues with some of her beliefs—the woman can tell a story. I mean, the novel as an art form is just in full florid bloom in Atlas Shrugged. It's an unbelievable story. The characters are so compelling, and what she's saying is mind-expanding. I really enjoyed that book, and it was kind of prophetic. I read that book for the first time during the Bush Administration and I was like, 'People are governing with their feelings as opposed to their intellect. This is happening.'"
On Marcel The Shell: "I guess my perspective on myself is that I aspire to be like Marcel."
Also, men, Hathaway thinks she might be ready to get married, though she admits that months ago she was still questioning, "is marriage really a tool of oppression?"
