Anne Hathaway Ask Fans To Call Her “Annie”, Says Anne Was A Mistake

The actor discussed the confusion on Tuesday’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Anne Hathaway Prefers To Be Called "Annie", Gives History Of How She Came About The Name

“I’ve known you for a pretty long time now. I’ve heard people call you Annie, like your good friends,” Fallon told her. “Do I call you Anne or Annie?”

“Call me Annie. Everybody, call me Annie, please.” Hathaway said

She then asked Fallon: “Can we talk about my name for a second?”, to which the host enthusiastically agreed.

Hathaway explained that she was 14 years old when she booked a commercial and joined the Screen Actors Guild labour union, also known as SAG.

When filling out information for her membership card, she was asked what name should appear on it and gave her legal name, Anne Hathaway.

“That seemed like the right choice, but it never occurred to me that for the rest of my life, people would call me Anne,” the actor added.

“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. Every time I step out in public and someone calls my name, I think they’re going to yell at me.”

In conclusion, she urged the host and other people to “call me anything but Anne”.

Hathaway stars with Chiwetel Ejiofor in the romantic comedy heist film “Locked Down”, out on HBO Max set to drop on 14th January.
