Anne Hathaway reveals we’ve all been calling her the wrong name

Anne Hathaway reveals we’ve all been calling her the wrong name

Oscar-winning actress Anne Hathaway wants everybody to start calling her by her nickname, Annie.

Hathaway, whose most recent movie “Locked Down” premieres on HBO Max on Thursday, told Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” that the only close person who ever calls her Anne is her mother — and only when she’s really angry.

“Call me Annie. Everybody, everybody, call me Annie. Please,” she said during a video appearance on the show on Tuesday.

“When I was 14 years old I did a commercial and I had to get my SAG (Screen Actors Guild) card and they asked me ‘what do you want your name to be?’

“And I’m like, well it should be my name — my name is Anne Hathaway… and that seemed like the right choice, but it never occurred to me that for the rest of my life people would call me Anne,” she told Fallon in the interview.

“The only person who ever calls me Anne is my mother, and she only does it when she’s really mad at me. Like, really mad.

“And so every time I step out in public and someone calls my name I think they’re going to yell at me,” she joked. “Call me anything but Anne.”

“Locked Down,” who she stars in with Chiwetel Ejiofor, tells the story of a couple tested by the restrictions of quarantine and builds out to include a heist plot with appearances from Ben Stiller, Ben Kingsley and Dule Hill.

Hathaway, who is 38 and has a 4-year-old and 1-year-old with husband Adam Shulman, also spoke to Fallon about caring for her children during lockdown.

“It’s been a lot,” she said, “but those are good ages to be home with your kids because our 4-year-old believes everything we tell him — and that’s adorable as well as very useful — and our 1-year-old… it’s just the most magic age.”

Hathaway has previously shared her support for women struggling with infertility.

In an Instagram post in 2019 announcing her second pregnancy, she said: “It’s not for a movie…#2. All kidding aside, for everyone going through infertility and conception hell, please know it was not a straight line to either of my pregnancies.

“Sending you extra love.”

Gregory Sierra, ‘Sanford and Son’ and ‘Barney Miller’ actor, dies at 83

Gregory Sierra, ‘Sanford and Son’ and ‘Barney Miller’ actor, dies at 83

Actor Gregory Sierra, best known for his roles in “Sanford and Son” and “Barney Miller,” died on January 4 from cancer, his widow Helene Tabor confirmed to CNN Friday. He was 83.

“He was quite wonderful, and my heart is broken into 400 million pieces,” Tabor said. The cancer persisted “for quite a while and he was doing the best he could and just couldn’t do it anymore,” she said.

Originally from New York, Sierra relocated to California, pursuing a film and stage career that ultimately spanned five decades. His most prominent roles were in sitcoms from the 1970s.

In NBC’s “Sanford and Son,” he was a series regular as the Sanfords’ neighbor Julio Fuentes. Later, he portrayed Miguel “Chano” Amanguale, a detective on ABC’s “Barney Miller.”

Sierra also had supporting or guest roles in “All in the Family,” “Hill Street Blues,” “Miami Vice,” and “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”

Film credits included “Beneath the Planet of the Apes,” “Papillon,” and “The Towering Inferno.”

Tabor called Sierra “a brilliant actor” and said he was still receiving fan mail in the days since his death. His last credited acting role was in 2018. Tabor said he decided to retire because, while he still loved acting, he had difficulty remembering his lines.

Tabor said he was “the first person to help anybody that needed help and he cared about people very much.”

Sierra is also survived by two stepdaughters and a step-granddaughter, all of whom, Tabor said, “loved him and called him ‘Dad.'”
