It was back in 2001 when Anne Hathaway starred in The Princess Diaries and, in effect, began her road to stardom. Earlier this year Hathaway divulged that a third installment was a possibility as a script had been written. The actress and Julie Andrews are both interested in another go round, which is great news.
We covered the roundtables for The Princess Diaries way back when, and during our first interview with Hathaway she expressed her love for the project. “The great part about the film is it does have a lot of really important messages in it but it doesn’t address it in any sort of preachy or didactic way,” said Hathaway. “I think it really is very straightforward and something that everyone could relate to and it’s not sappy. It’s not cheesy or corny. It’s a really good movie and I’m really proud of it.”
Andrews’ iconic work includes The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins (she also performed a great rendition of “Getting To Know You” for The King and I studio cast recording), so it was understandable if Hathaway was a bit nervous the first time she met the actress.
