‘Jane’ reign for Hathaway

Sunshine Cinema premiere an intimate affair

It was a family affair for Anne Hathaway at the “Becoming Jane” premiere on Tuesday night.

After an intimate screening at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema, guests gathered a few blocks away at the new Bowery Hotel, where Hathaway, her father and various other members of her family played a jovial game of pool.

“I really thought there was no chance I was going to land this part. It just seemed absurd that the girl from ‘The Princess Diaries’ would play Jane Austen, so I was truly grateful when I got it,” Hathaway said before excusing herself “to go take an impossible shot!”

Luckily for the thesp, she was a fan of the author prior to taking on the role.

“I did a comparative essay on ‘Pride and Prejudice’ and ‘Sense and Sensibility,’ funny enough, on how Jane Austen seemed to use real life examples (in her novels),” she said. “I got a B plus.”
