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.”
