Anne Hathaway - A Star is Born

 

For many months, it’s been one of the most buzzed-about and highly-anticipated films. And it did not disappoint.

 

Ever since A Star Is Born hit theaters, it’s touched the lives of countless viewers who’ve all fallen in love with the Bradley Cooper – Lady Gaga starrer. Including one Miss Anne Hathaway.

 

 

 

Yes, the talented actress absolutely loves the film – and she’s taken to social media to share just how deeply A Star Is Born resonated with her, writing a beautiful note about the film on Instagram.

 

Here’s what Anne had to say about A Star Is Born (Spoiler alert: It’ll give you chills!):

 

“I keep thinking how we move through things so quickly these days (how could we not?); I know my personal capacity to absorb something new is often maxed out. For example, a movie opens, we are “obsessed” for a weekend, we move on. I do this too: even when I really love something, I get distracted by the next thing, don’t fully digest the experience and I quickly move on, like the world exists only to entertain me, like great art is unlimited, that my consumption of it as an everyday all-you-can eat buffet is acceptable.

 

We are so fortunate- a ton of worthy, excellent movies are going to come out between now and the end of the year, and our plates are going to become increasingly full. That said, I think A Star is Born is so special, so ambitious, so audacious and so brilliantly human that it shouldn’t just be a news story for one weekend.

 

Even being so excited about what’s coming out, I want to really luxuriate in appreciation for A Star is Born. I saw this film back in August at the Venice Film Festival and I still walk around feeling lucky I was in that audience.

 

This film surprised me in the best possible way; it even killed some cynicism that I didn’t know had snuck into my heart.

 

I loved it.

 

I hope you see it.

 

Bravo @ladygaga.
Bravo #bradleycooper.

 

Thank you.

Encore 🌹”

Chills all over – and it gets even better.

 

Lady Gaga responded to Anne’s post with the sweetest comment. Here’s what she wrote:

 

“Anne, I don’t even know what to say this post was so beautiful and means the world to me, I look up to you so much you’re an incredible artist.

 

Thank you so much for not only being so supportive but the poetry of kindness with which you communicate your message. I feel lucky you were sitting there with me.”
