Anne Hathaway is a very important person who lives a very busy life doing very important things, like filming Japanese commercials to fund her addiction to cigarettes and fantasy football. If you expect Anne Hathaway to perform at her best, she’s going to need a good breakfast.
You know, guys, it is the most important meal of the day. Anne Hathaway just wants what the rest of us want? A well-cooked egg. When her egg wasn’t served to her with her specifications, she sent it back, just like the rest of us would. Four times, according TMZ:
1st try: Poached egg too runny.
2nd try: English muffin was cold because it sat while egg #2 was being poached.
3rd try: Egg #2 cold because it sat while chef toasted muffin #2.
4th try: Egg, muffin and avocado were perfect, but it took so long she decided she was in the mood for a fried egg.
The chef on the Paramount lot HAD ONE JOB. How hard is it to make a poached egg that is only 12 percent runny and time it perfectly with a English muffin warmed to a perfect 101 degrees (no, not 99 degrees, asshole!). It’s not rocket science, people! It’s eggs.
Anne Hathaway didn’t win that Oscar by accepting imperfect eggs, you know? She demands perfection from everyone around her, just as she demands perfection from herself.
