Joan Rivers Brings Up Anne Hathaway’s Malfunction. Again.
The jig is up with Joan Rivers. We all know she’s going to say and do whatever she wants, and that often what she wants to say and do is close to unthinkable for the average celebrity.
Thus a picture she tweeted of herself cradling a big pair of stuffed lips between her legs with the caption “Who am I? Anne Hathaway getting out of a limousine,” isn’t as shocking as it would be coming from, say, Julie Andrews. Still, Hathaway has made it clear (using universally admired politeness and intelligence) that she wants to put the incident behind her. It’s apparent in interviews that she was upset by the intrusion and had difficulty laughing off and letting go. Which may well be what Rivers would have done in the same situation — but she operates under a wildly different celebrity persona, and it’s probably a good idea to respect the difference.
Writing on a topic you think should go away is obviously inherently problematic. And I respect Joan’s very famous comedic ability. But maybe it’s time to let this one die.
