Anna Hathaway Explains Rare Red Carpet Presence

She’s been lying low for months both personally and professionally and Anne Hathaway told the Huffington Post she was giving the public a rest from seeing her constantly.

During her interview at the Sundance Film Festival, the “Dark Knight Rises” babe explained why she hasn’t appeared in movies or at high-profile events as of late.

Anne noted, "My impression is that people needed a break from me. I think there's a common misconception about actors -- that we have a lot more control than we do about when things happen.”

As for her latest release “Song One,” Hathaway shared, “We met on this [movie] in 2011 -- I was working on Batman -- and then we developed this script and the music for two years, and we shot it in June. We had been planning on shooting in the fall and then Chris Nolan called with an offer for a part in his new movie..."

"So, we would either have to wait and push until after that -- which nobody wanted to do -- or move it up and have a truncated pre-production, which is what wound up happening. I am not complaining about how it's working out.”
