The Word: Anne Hathaway’s brother spills her big news onstage
The perils of a showbiz family: One relative’s personal announcement can quickly become another’s stand-up routine.
Anne Hathaway learned this week that her brother Tom Hathaway had let slip onstage that she’s pregnant. “He said, ‘My sister got married last year, and now she is about to be a new mom!’ I don’t think he realized what he had done,” a source who witnessed Tom’s stand-up routine at Brooklyn’s Tandem Bar told Radar.
Apparently Tom wasn’t just making a joke — another family friend also said that Anne and her husband Adam Shulman are expecting their first child. They are probably also expecting to give Tom a stern talking-to.
Scarlett Johansson admits that she had a shot at Anne Hathaway‘s Oscar-winning role in “Les Miserables,” but some voice trouble plagued her audition. “I sang my little heart out,” Johansson tells Broadway.com. “I auditioned with laryngitis. I did everything I could to, like, not have laryngitis.”
But Johansson, currently starring on Broadway in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” insists there are no hard feelings. “Looking at the film now, there’s no possible way I ever could have topped that performance,” she says of Hathaway’s turn. “It was perfect and I think fateful and meant to be.”
