Anne Hathaway Really Doesn't Like Being Called Anne

Anne Hathaway Really Doesn't Like Being Called Anne

Actor Anne Hathaway has revealed that she hates it when people call her Anne - awkward.

The 38-year-old Hollywood star has said no one in her personal life ever calls her Anne except for her mum when she's in trouble.

So, I think we can see why she's keen to ditch it.

Appearing on The Tonight Show, Anne... sorry Ms Hathaway, let slip that she absolutely hates being called Anne and would prefer people to call her 'anything but Anne'.

Starting the interview, she said: "Call me Annie, everybody, everybody, call me Annie, please."

Before adding: "It's... can we talk about my name for a second?"

She then went on to explain that although Anne is her real first name, it's really more of a stage name - and she Anne ended up stuck with it after she gave it in when she first got into acting when she was just 14.

"When I was 14 years old, I did a commercial, and I had to get my SAG [Screen Actors Guild] card and they asked me, 'What do you want your name to be?'" she explained.

When it comes to what she prefers to be called, she's not particularly bothered - as long as it's not Anne, of course - explaining that people call her Annie, Miss H or Hath.

She then told host Jimmy Fallon that outside of work no one calls her 'Anne' - adding: "The only person who calls me Anne is my mother and she only does it when she's really mad at me, like really mad.

"So, every time I step out in public and someone calls my name, I think they're going to yell at me.

"People are like, "Anne!" And I'm like, 'What? What did I do?'

"People are so lovely they don't want to be presumptuous and so I think they come up with workarounds on set because the truth is nobody's comfortable with calling me Anne ever.

"It doesn't fit. I'm an Annie."

Fair enough, Annie.
