Anne Hathaway wrote a memoir – and publishers rejected it because of concerns about “Hathahaters,” new reports say.
Celebrity Dirty Laundry reports that Hathaway’s memoir was rejected because she isn’t popular enough.
“The actress’ not-so-highly anticipated memoir was rejected by numerous publishing houses when she pitched the idea of writing her life story,” Star magazine wrote.
“Anne was told flat out that her life isn’t just that interesting and she’s just not popular enough. She is crushed because she thought she had a best-seller,” a source said.
However, Gossip Cop reports that the news is not true.
The website writes that Star has previously reported false rumors about Hathaway, 30, including saying that the “Les Miserables” star is planning on quitting acting because of her online haters.
“That was false, and so is this story,” the site reports. “Hathaway never shoped a book to publishers, and was never rejected.”
“Completely false,” a rep told Gossip Cop. “She has never even contemplated writing a book.”
“Hathahaters” have come to prominence this year, with the New York Times publishing a piece analyzing why Hathaway is so unpopular online. Hathaway was voted the San Francisco Chronicle’s “Most Annoying Celebrity of 2013” and was the topic of blog posts and articles by writers for Crushable, the New Yorker and New York magazine’s The Cut, among others.
“For some nonfans, Ms. Hathaway seems to embody the archetypal high school drama geek who cannot turn off the eager, girlish persona, even away from the stage,” the New York Times wrote, adding that people see her as “phony” and adding that the hatred may be “less about Ms. Hathaway and more about how social media has amplified the echo chamber of celebrity blogs, reducing cultural commentary to a series of innuendos, like high school gossip.”© 2013 Fashion & Style.com All rights reserved.
