Feel her pop

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.

I can't help it; I can't stand her. No matter how adorkable others might find her, I don't see the appeal.

I'm with you, Dorothy. I find her adorable and earnest, if not always successful in her endeavors.

That rap, however, can go in the Win column. :)

Ah, that was amazing.

Oh lord. Earlier I refrained from discussing James Franco, because at one point I did think he was appealing. (I.e., he was the only good thing about the first Spiderman movie. I couldn't even watch the rest. Anyway.)

Then I saw this, and I thought I should share it with you: http://www.businessinsider.com/james-franco-freida-pinto-rise-of-the-planet-of-the-apes-2011-8

Seriously?

Thank you times infinity for sharing that! Anne is an adorable and lovely woman. What's not to love about someone who starts a song with "it's in the style of Lil Wayne"?

Jesus Christ, the comments on that Jezebel article are harsh.

Anne got her job on the Princess Diaries because she ACTUALLY legitimately fell out of a chair during the casting session. I think we can safely say the dorkiness is legit. From one dork who walks into walls on a daily basis, I can say we can smell our own. And that IS the appeal.

It won't really have effect, I consider like this.
