Anne Hathaway Explains Why She Relates to Her Character in “The Intern”

Anne Hathaway proved that she is a fan girl through and through when it comes to Mariah Carey. Anyone who runs a business-of any size-knows how busy it can be. Jules is struggling not just with the company, but also balancing her home life-including husband, Matt (Anders Holm), and daughter, Paige (JoJo Kushner)-with work. The actress felt that she should be more “unlikable” by showing a more “outward and obvious expression for her stress”. She has mostly collaborated with Hans Zimmer.


Don’t blame De Niro if Ben’s narrative arc, given his can-do attitude and ever-ready resourcefulness, doesn’t give him far to travel. The Intern starts down that road and there is a lot of good in it. Both De Niro and Hathaway offer enough charm and humor to keep it afloat, and they are aided with a solid supporting cast which also includes Adam DeVine, Christina Scherer, Andrew Rannells, and Zack Pearlman.

“Brockes continued: “(I said) “I have to say, now that you’re going on about it, it makes me think you were on autopilot and you’re supersensitive about it”. For a film depicting such a fast-paced startup, the dialogue was awfully slow during the sentimental scenes between Jules and Ben. He becomes the private intern to the head of the company, Jules Ostin (Hathaway), a women very dedicated to her new company. The movie, starring Academy Award winners Robert DeNiro and Anne Hathaway, takes a modern twist on the average intern story. Earlier this week after seeing the film, I posted on Facebook whether or not a film’s lack of diversity should be counted against it. Most comments said that it shouldn’t, but that it’s still worth mentioning.

“It may take longer than normal, but I think I’ve had a movie every three years for about 12 or 15 years, and then as much as 5 years or so….” Although it’s unlikely to be remembered come Oscar time and ultimately succumbs to sentimentality, it’s mostly charming and fun to watch. This is beyond annoying, and it needs to stop.

“I’m freaking out. Like, she’s two arms’ lengths away right now”, she told the reporter as she smiling goofily at the camera, trying her best not to make it obvious that she was freaking out. It’s fair to point out when a movie is not fully representing its setting.


The movie’s plot involves a 70-year old intern at a web-based fashion company, so realism isn’t necessarily what the film is aiming for. She was very specific what she wanted, and I understand this and it was terrific.

Anne keeps her cool with Hollywood legend Robert De Niro
