The only thing her man should be feeling right now is anger and disgust… at the photographer.
Anne Hathaway is the newest celebrity to join an ever-growing list of red-carpet walkers who’ve had their “goods” photographed by the paparazzi. Yes, Anne Hathaway is now amongst Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and a slew of other women who’ve been unfortunate enough to be uncrossing their legs at just the wrong time while stepping out of a car in front of dozens of waiting cameras.
The Les Mis star was attending the New York premiere for her film when she hopped out of an SUV and a photographer snapped a shot up her dress. In my opinion, it’s not Anne but the photographer, who then sold the photo that’s making the rounds on the Internet, who should be ashamed.
What about her new husband Adam Shulman? Well, we haven’t heard his reaction yet. But, I don’t feel he has the right to be upset. His wife was caught in an unfortunate and unintentional pose and because she’s famous, it was sold to the media. If her husband feels anything about this incident it should be concern and disgust in the commercializing of this type of photography, and that his wife fell victim to that sensationalism when a private photo of her was taken without her authorization.
We’re assuming her husband didn’t really mind. The actress and man were in L.A. today looking super cheery and even shared a kiss after she found out that she was nominated for Best Supporting Female Actor by the Screen Actors Guild.
Hathaway, being the charming and mature adult she is, nicely summed up the ick-factor regarding the photo when Matt Lauer asked her about it on the Today show: “It was obviously an unfortunate incident. It kind of made me sad on two accounts. One was that I was very sad that we live in an age when someone takes a picture of another person in a vulnerable moment, and rather than delete it, and do the decent thing, sells it. And I’m sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies the sexualityof unwilling participants. Which brings us back to Les Mis […] So lets get back to Les Mis.”
Well put, Anne. Such a classy lady.
