A Spoonful of Chatter? Anne Hathaway Responds to Mary Poppins Casting Rumors: 'No One's Talked to Me About It'
Anne Hathaway may not be officially attached to the upcoming Mary Poppins remake, but she jokes she's got her sights set on a role in a Trainwreck sequel
All she needs is an umbrella and some magic!
It would only makes sense, too. First, she succeeded Julie Andrews as the Queen of Genovia in Princess Diaries, so naturally she seems like a great bet to fill the legendary star’s shoes as Mary Poppins – chalk it up to basic movie science.
“I saw them announce it on television and they mentioned Mary Poppins and I was thinking I said, ‘That’s Annie,’ ” the 72-year-old actor told Entertainment Tonight.
So is it a done deal? Not quite. Turns out, the idea of her playing Mary Poppins is news to her.
“Really?!” Hathaway responded. “Cool! No one’s talked to me about it.”
While Hathaway seems all for it, she might have to battle it out with one of her pals to get the gig. Emily Blunt is also rumored to be up for the role. And even Hathaway admits that Blunt might be a bit more qualified right off the bat.
“I feel like she’s going to get it – she’s British,” she said.
While it remains uncertain as to who will give out the next spoonful of sugar, one thing remains certain: Hathaway is petitioning to get herself onboard a possible Trainwreck sequel with Amy Schumer.
“I would love to see me in that. Not gonna lie, that’s just an open-hearted wish!”
