Anne Hathaway Says She’s ‘Pulling’ for ‘Princess Diaries 3’

Anne Hathaway Says She’s ‘Pulling’ for ‘Princess Diaries 3’

SOURCE – Anne Hathaway is always ready for a return to Genovia!

The actress recently sat down with ET’s Rachel Smith to discuss her upcoming movie, Armageddon Time, but also took a moment to rave about the possibility of making a Princess Diaries 3 and the chance to work with the “magnificent” Julie Andrews once again.

I would more than entertain it, I’m pulling for it,” Hathaway shared. “If there’s any way to get Julie Andrews involved, I think we would make it work. We would go to where she was and put a green screen behind her and just make it happen.

However, having worked with the legendary actress twice before — as well as many other A-listers — doesn’t make Hathaway immune to getting starstruck. She opened up to ET about clamming up on the set of Armageddon Time when she first met co-star Anthony Hopkins.

I’m not embarrassed. I think it would happen to anybody,” she shared. “I don’t even think he noticed. I think he just accepts people in whatever state they’re in. I went home, and I shook it off, and I came back in the next day, and then we found each other.

Hathaway said making the film — which follows a Jewish family living in Queens in the 1980s — was a “very personal” experience for her, noting that one of the underlying themes is the idea that “family’s more complicated often than we feel comfortable discussing.

This is a film about a home in which love and violence coexist,” she explained. “I think that it’s going to resonate with people, a lot of people, that family is a complicated thing.

She also shared a personal connection to the movie through her own family life.

I wanted to bring aspects of the film home, because my husband is Jewish and so I had a lot of questions for him,” Hathaway shared. “It was not lost on me, the extraordinary responsibility of playing a Jewish woman, when these aren’t roles that come around very often, and what it meant for me who is not raised that way and was not born into that religion.

I wanted to make sure I did a good job and I covered every base and didn’t leave any stone unturned,” she added. “My husband was an absolutely invaluable resource to me in this one.

Armageddon Time is in theaters Oct. 28.
