PARK CITY, UTAH: Anne Hathaway has revealed the unpleasant incident she had with a reporter when she was 16 years old. The 'Princess Diaries' actress said she saw an unexpected link between that unpleasant moment and her new movie which had its Sundance Film Festival premiere on Saturday, January 21, 2023.

Hathaway spoke onstage while standing on the enormous platform inside Park City's Eccles Theatre after the global premiere of her new movie titled 'Eileen'. The Oscar winner expressed her gratitude for sharing the screen with Thomasin McKenzie, Shea Whigham, Marin Ireland, and Owen Teague in William Oldroyd's movie before kindly apologizing if what she was about to say made "an annoying headline." Oldroyd's 2016 historical drama 'Lady Macbeth' starring Florence Pugh was the catalyst for Hathaway's decision to collaborate with him on 'Eileen'. "I thought it was extraordinary work. I saw a study of female complication that hit me really, really deep, and I felt like Will was a filmmaker that could be trusted to tell complicated stories, especially about females," Hathway said.

Oldroyd's skill was really beneficial for Hathaway as she recalled that "are you a good girl or a bad girl" was one of the first questions she was ever asked when she started her work as an actor. She referred to 'Eileen' by saying, "I was 16, and my 16-year-old self wanted to respond with this film. Though I did not know that when I read the script, I think a part of me hoped for this exact moment."

Not only did Hathaway's remarks made the headlines, but they also received a lot of feedback online. One social media user wrote, "Wow that's some f up s**t. hollywood is full of pedos, gross." Another person wrote, "What the f*k? Why would a reporter be asking that, like why does that matter."

A third individual, who did not find the question weird, wrote, "Considering she came on the scene around the same time as 'virginal' (lol) Britney Spears and 'bad girl' Christina and 'wild child' Paris, etc... for the time, I don't really think that is a weird question. People constantly trying to make something out of nothing these days..."

One other person jokingly wrote, "My math teacher asked me that in year 9." Another individual, who was outraged by the reporter's question, wrote, "I swear some reporters are just farking clueless with bait questions like that!"

'Eileen', an adaptation of a book of the same name by Ottessa Moshfegh, depicts a strange young woman whose depressing life spirals ever downward into sadness. Eileen (McKenzie) commutes back and forth between her emotionally tormented father's house and the prison where she works with other inmates who have shunned her in chilly 1960s Boston. According to toofab.com, Oldroyd claimed that the book's "dark, strangely funny, weird" tone and voice attracted him to it for adaptation as he believed it would translate well to the big screen.
