Rihanna Helped Anne Hathaway Be More Confident About Her Body, And We Are Living For It

Diply 8 Jun 2018

In the media, we so often see celebrities — and female celebrities, in particular — being pitted against one another. So when a story like this one comes along, you can bet your bottom dollar we're going to talk about it.

During a recent appearance on Ellen, Anne Hathaway talked about how her Ocean's 8 castmates (specifically Rihanna) helped her to feel more confident about her post-baby body. This story is straight-up heartwarming, and now we want to see the movie even more.

"One of the lucky things about being in this business for so long is that I've really kind of come to terms with the pressure that you get to look a certain way as an actress," Anne revealed to Ellen.

"And I don't beat myself up about any of that stuff anymore," she continued. "But after I had my son, the weight was really slow to come off and so I was a different size than I normally am."

"I walked on the set [of Ocean's 8], and you know, my weight's a little up, and I'm aware of it," Anne told Ellen.

"And I walk on the set and I'm in my jeans, and I've done my best and I'm going to love myself no matter what, and Sandy Bullock looks up and goes, 'Looking good, mama!' Cate Blanchett's like, 'Nice jeans, Hathaway!'"

"And then Rihanna looks up and goes, 'Damn girl, you got an ass!' And I, of course, freaked out and loved it so much," Anne gushed.

"I was like, 'Really?!' And she goes, 'You got an ass like me!'" Anne continued.
