The Princess Diaries and The Devil Wears Prada must seem so far away to Anne Hathaway. She’s since suffered a very public break-up with her scam-artist Italian boyfriend (though she must have truly moved on, as she’s joking about it over and over again on the late-night circuit), won critical acclaim and is generating Oscar buzz for her performance in Rachel Getting Married (which debuted in limited release last Friday), hosted "Saturday Night Live" this past weekend, and has another movie opening on October 24th, the decent-looking Passengers.
But that’s not all! Throughout the summer, celebrity gossip magazines were constantly running still-shots from the set of Bride Wars, a comedy Anne is starring in with Kate Hudson about best friends who become enemies after they pick the same wedding date. That one’s out in early 2009.
And the breaking news today is that Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland has found its White Queen. On top of that, it’s likely that Hathaway will soon sign on for Get Smart 2, especially since Steve Carell just did.
If her old flame wasn’t kicking himself before, he is now.
