Anne Hathaway wants My Fair Lady role

Feb 22 2013, 11:24am CST | by

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."

New trailer for Chris Nolan's 'Interstellar' shows off the strong '2001' influence

Jul 26 2014 11:54am CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

When Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey took the stage of Hall H on Thursday afternoon, it was a genuine surprise to most people in the room. As it turns out, it was a pleasant surprise for the studio as well, who weren't sure it was going to happen until very early Thursday morning.If they had not been there, the new trailer for the movie would have had to speak for itself, and I suspect it would have been fine. Instead, the director and the star did a nice job of setting the ta ...

Rainbow In The Dark: Jenny Lewis On Staring Down Sadness

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

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 ...

Kristen Stewart & Anne Hathaway go drag king for music video: meh?

Jul 16 2014 6:15am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

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, ...

Katherine Heigl Confronts “Letting Down” Her Audience and Rumors of “Being Difficult” on Set

Jul 14 2014 9:45am CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

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 controversial statements she made ...
