Anne Hathaway wants My Fair Lady role

Anne Hathaway wants to star in 'My Fair Lady'.

The actress is hoping to capitalize on her Oscar-nominated performance in 'Les Miserables' by landing the lead role of Eliza Doolittle in a stage version of the hit musical.

She told the Daily Mail newspaper: "I haven't heard for a while what's happening with 'My Fair Lady' and I don't know whether I would do it on stage, or screen, but either would be a treat."

The actress was reportedly being lined up to star in a film adaptation of the long-running show opposite Colin Firth, but the film rights fell through.

Legendary music mogul Clive Davis announced earlier this week that he will produce the show on Broadway and is hoping to sign up Anne and Colin for the lead roles.

However, the Daily Mail claims the actress could take to the stage in London's West End alongside Dominic West.

Anne will get another chance to showcase her impressive vocals later this year since a musical number has been written especially for her in upcoming drama 'Song One'.

Her one-time co-star Jim Sturgess has also confessed he isn't surprised by her singing success and thinks she is perfect for musical roles.

Jim told BANG Showbiz: "I know how much she loves singing. When we were shooting the film 'One Day' she was always breaking out into theatrical songs. So I was already pretty sure that she'd be able to pull ['Les Miserables'] off."

Rainbow In The Dark: Jenny Lewis On Staring Down Sadness

Jul 19 2014 4:05pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

Rilo Kiley In Concert At Santa Monica Civic Center
Once upon a time, Jenny Lewis was one of those child actors you might have seen on shows like Growing Pains and Mr. Belvedere. But then she started making music, and in the late '90s that started taking off. Once her band Rilo Kiley started scoring hits, it was hard to go back to sitcoms. Lewis founded Rilo Kiley in 1998 with her then-boyfriend, Blake Sennett; when when they split up, the band dissolved, too. She began writing her new solo album, The Voyager, in the shadow of compounding tr ...

Chanel : Front Row - Paris Fashion Week : Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2014-2015
Most California hipsters and wannabes know of/are obsessed with Rilo Kiley. Personally, I don’t get it. But I’m not from California, I guess. I mean, Jenny Lewis – the singer/songwriter who started Rilo Kiley with Blake Sennett back in the 1990s – is a good artist and everything. I just don’t get why everyone acts like Rilo Kiley is the best band ever or whatever. I guess I’m not “with it.” Anyway, Rilo Kiley is over. The band’s ...

White House Talent Show featuring Michelle Obama, SJP Making Turnaround Arts Announcement.
For actresses in Hollywood the question of “likability” can be nearly as important to their career as the level of their talent. Just ask the curiously embattled Anne Hathaway or Hathaway’s shadow self, the unstoppably popular Jennifer Lawrence. Or, better yet, ask Katherine Heigl who, during a Television Critics Association Q&A for her new NBC drama State of Affairs, was pressed into confronting both some of the more contro ...

"Ella Enchanted" Film Premiere
Depending on who you are, just hearing the term “young adult movie adaptation” might make you cringe. While the genre has been around for decades, the films have really started to hit their stride in the last couple of years or so. While we have been blessed with films like The Hunger Games, Coraline, and the recently-released Shailene Woodley-starring The Fault In Our Stars , we've also seen many blunders. This is sometimes due to the filmmakers deviating too much from the book i ...
