Rihanna just complimented Anne Hathaway's booty in the best way possible
Sooo, Ocean's 8 came out in cinemas this week, and it's already smashing the box office.
Yes, the film itself looks totally epic, but let's talk about the incredible line-up of female actresses that star in the film. Sandra Bullock leads the heist operation, together with Cate Blanchett. Then you've got Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Helena Bonham Carter and Anne Hathaway. I mean – wow – can you even imagine them standing there all together on the big screen?
Well, what's even more fun to imagine is the actresses working together on set. We already know they're all incredible women in real life, and to know that they've spent so much time together as coworkers and gal pals is lovely to think about.
Take Anne Hathaway, for example, who just revealed that she copped a whole lotta love from her co-stars after returning to acting after giving birth to her first child.
Ocean's 8 was her first post-baby movie, and the 35-year-old actress recalled what it was like to return to set on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Hathaway gave birth in 2016 to a baby boy, and admitted she was a little self-conscious that "the weight was really slow to come off" afterwards.
But walking onto set, Hathaway was greeted with support and an outpouring of admiration from her coworkers.
“One of the lucky things about being in this business for so long is that I’ve really kind of come to terms with the pressure that you get to look a certain way as an actress and I don’t beat myself up about any of that stuff anymore,” she told Ellen. “But after I had my son, the weight was really slow to come off and so I was a different size than I normally am.”
She said she learned to love herself anyway and had accepted that she'd "done her best", but the incredible compliments she received for her curvier figure really helped banish any self-doubt she may have held on to.
“I walked on the set, and, you know, my weight’s a little up and I’m just aware of it. And I walk on the set and I’m in my jeans, and I’ve done my best and I’m going to love myself no matter what, and Sandy Bullock looks up and goes, ‘Looking good, mama!’ Cate Blanchett’s like, ‘Nice jeans, Hathaway!’”
But the person who gave the best compliment? Rihanna, of course.
“Rihanna looks up and goes, ‘Damn, girl, you got an a**!’” Hathaway recalled. “And I, of course, freaked out and loved it so much. I was like, ‘Really?!’ And she goes, ‘You got an ass like me!’”
Well, if there were ever #bootygoals, it would definitely be to have yours compared to Rihanna's by Riri herself.
“It was just beautiful to be surrounded by that much love,” Hathaway said.
Sandra Bullock said something similar of her time filming Ocean's 8. "I saw a group of women support each other in the most humbling way. Everyone wanting the other to ‘have their moment'," she told People magazine. "A lot of film was wasted on laughing fits that usually resulted in makeup having to be redone and a little snot being removed."
Snot and all, it certainly sounded like a lot of fun.
