"Colossal" melds Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis with giant monsters

While it might be odd to describe an Oscar-winning, well-compensated actress as underrated, I'd argue that the pop-cultural target on Hathaway's back has kept her skilled, always-committed performances from getting their due, though that may be about to change. But yeah that just rattled me, especially growing up in Kansas, it was scary as hell. I still find the conversation very interesting. I don't have to contextualize all of my stories, all of my experiences through that time. "I need to make a movie that's creatively ambitious and weird, and I don't even know if it'll be for everybody, but something that's definitely for me".

"I just thought, I need to do something like that", says Hathaway, who's played everything from a load of princesses to Catwoman to "Rachel Getting Married's" troublesome sister. "We did one take of the fight because there's a big fight in this, and my heart rate sped up really fast and I said, 'OK guys, pregnant limitation".

Soon after, social media lit up with anti-Hathaway sentiment, fomented by "Hathahaters", people who found something fake and smug about the way she tried to come across as nice, good, humble and grateful. I like to see that kind of stuff when you go to the movies. "We kept the theme just rainbows, which is a fun theme because it's hard to go wrong with it", Hathaway, 34, explained to DeGeneres and Colossal costar Jason Sudeikis.

"I made the mistake, I went on Pinterest and looked at other people's 1-year-old parties", she said.

Like several other Hollywood films, too many to name; Colossal, written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo skims the destructive effects of alcoholism on people whose lives are ruined by this tragic addiction.

HATHAWAY: You're gonna get so many more props for you saying that than me saying Pacific Rim. And to that extent, I feel like I got to shortcut a lot of my growth. Then again, the director winces when I mention that word. I'm going to post them on Instagram stories, but I'm not going to post them to my Instagram. [Laughs] When has any public figure ever not? So I thought that was really fun; I liked the creatures. And it was a great way to be silly and kind of do things off the cuff. She's drop dead gorgeous and can make you cry your hearts out in serious roles like her Oscar snagger film "Les Miserables". "We had a third scene partner in Anne's belly, so there was already a gingerness that was expected... not that it wouldn't be expected beforehand", said Sudeikis.
