I love making movies that have a bit of romance in them: Anne Hathaway on The Idea Of You 

Ahead of the release of The Idea Of You, Anne Hathaway revealed that she always looks to play romantic characters in her films. The actress, who is well known for her roles in The Intern, Princess Diaries, and Oceans 8 among others, added that it is difficult to find love stories that are ‘true’. As per a press statement obtained by Pinkvilla, the actress said, “I love making movies that have a bit of romance in them, but it can be hard to find ones that you believe and feel like they tap into something true. There was something about Solène and Hayes (main characters in the movie) and their love that did feel true” 

Hathaway further mentioned what the team felt while making The Idea Of You. She asserted that she wanted to make a movie that the audience could have fun watching. She added, “We wanted to make a movie that would make audiences feel wonderful by telling a story about people who are a pleasure to know and are fun to watch together. The truth that is emerging from this moment is that it’s not necessarily who they are or how they look or how they present or any of those things. It’s just about love.”
