You know what I like about Anne Hathaway? She’s game. She’s really, really fucking game. And while that gameness can sometimes be construed as over-eagerness, I prefer to see it is as an endearing earnestness. She’s so very likeable. Even in that disaster of her Oscar co-hosting gig, it wasn’t for her lack of trying. (No, it was for James Franco’s lack of trying – seriously, I do not understand that dude’s appeal.) So when she stopped by Conan on Tuesday, I was expecting Anne to be her normal delightful self. But I never thought her appearance would make me like her so much more. I don’t know how she does it, but she has the adorably-dorky-yet-princess-pretty thing down pat. Also, girl can rhyme, yo.
Granted, I still don’t like that new Catwoman costume. But I have no doubt that Anne will do her best.
p.s. A fuller version of Anne’s Conan appearance can be seen here. And, yes, it makes her even that much more likeable.
