Anne of New Jersey






















Her name is Anne Jacqueline Hathaway and we are the same height and also like me, she is the daughter of a stage actress. People tend to call her Annie. The first time I heard someone talk about Anne Hathaway, I just assumed they were talking about William Shakespeare's wife. As you can tell, I was very confused indeed. Yes, she shares the same name as Mrs Shakespeare, but this Anne isn't british, she a Yankie born in Brooklyn, New York and raised in New Jersey.

Anne is an award-winning soprano and an award-winning actress. Like all good bombshells, she loves animals and has a very happy 6 year old chocolate labrador named Esmerelda. Another Bombshell bonus about Annie is she spent a week in July 2006 in Nicaragua helping vaccinate kids there against Hepatitis A and it was an experience she regards as "..an eye opener". We should ALL go and spend a week in Nicaragua (we should also all learn now to spell Nicaragua).

The following is a list of her favourite actresses: (fellow-Melbournian) Cate Blanchett, Audrey Hepburn, Judy Garland, Bryce Dallas-Howard, Ryan Gosling, Michelle Pfeiffer, Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet, Meryl Streep and Sigourney Weaver.

She hasn't had breast impants, her bust is only a 36B. I love that she hasn't been sucked into the conformity of post-millenium uber-plastic-implanted-cyber-babe phenomenon and says, "I look my best after an entire hair and makeup team has spent hours perfecting me. When do I feel my best? When I haven't looked in a mirror for days, and I'm doing things that make me happy."
Saying things like that will endear her to women around the world. It makes me wonder if someone told her to play down the stardom factor of if she is, in fact, a normal girl.

Another quote I found charming is, "Kindness is really important to me in finding my own prince - so are patience and a sense of humor. Without those qualities he's no Prince Charming!"

Bless. . .
