Ever since The Princess Diaries, we’ve been a fan of Anne Hathaway. She’s totally adorable, she’s fearless (that catsuit in The Dark Knight Rises?), and we weren’t surprised when the talented actress chopped off her long brown hair to play Fantine in the upcoming film adaptation of Les Miserables. But we are surprised she won’t shut up about it.
Hathaway was first spotted with the shorter style back in April, and her gutsy cut caused a frenzy. Fans called it ugly, critics said it showed dedication, beauty editors hailed it as the new fashion for spring. Hathaway clearly felt compelled to respond—and then to respond again. In July, she said on Live! With Kelly that her haircut drove her to “mental-patient-level crying.” Soon after, she was gushing to Vogue about her love of “the short-haired lifestyle.” And last week at the New York City screening of the film, she told a reporter, “When I eventually looked at myself in the mirror, I just looked like my gay brother.”
I guess some people remain curious, but I’m getting Hathaway hair fatigue. I’d rather hear about her next big role, or what it was like to host the Oscars, rather than one more comment about what it’s like to go supershort. I have hair, too, but I don’t feel compelled to repeatedly discuss the time I had too-short bangs, or when I accidentally dyed my hair orange, or that really great hair day I had last week. Anne, we love you—but we’re sick of hearing about your pixie cut!
