Anne Hathaway ‘Threw a Fit’ After Seeing Amanda Seyfried’s Oscar Dress

The endless saga that is Anne Hathaway‘s Oscars dress continues, and this time, it seems that we finally have an explanation as to why she made the last minute decision to ditch the Valentino dress she was set to wear on the red carpet last Sunday in favor of an ill-fitting pink Prada number.

Hours before the ceremony (where Hathaway snagged a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role as Fantine in “Les Misérables”), the PR team behind Valentino sent out a press release stating that she, along with Jennifer Aniston and Sally Field, would be wearing the famed designer at the biggest celebrity fashion spectacle of the year.

Needless to say, people who received the release (press, industry insiders) were baffled when she arrived in the rather unexciting Prada, and rumors flew that she changed her dress because it was too similar to Jennifer Aniston’s red Valentino or Amanda Seyfried’s lacy Alexander McQueen. Afterward, Hathaway ridiculously issued an apology, stating: “It came to my attention late Saturday night that there would be a dress worn to the Oscars that is remarkably similar to the Valentino I had intended to wear, and so I decided it was best for all involved to change my plans.”

It turns out the culprit of the dress shift was indeed due to her costar Amanda Seyfried. According to Us Weekly, Hathaway learned about the dress during an Oscar rehearsal when Seyfried showed her an iPhone photo.

“Anne was like ‘WTF?!’ … She started throwing a fit!” a source told Us Weekly, adding that Anne “never told Amanda she had to change the dress.” Still, Seyfried, 27, didn’t want to deal with Hathaway’s tirade and left the rehearsal, the source added.

The next day, Hathaway reportedly kept her hair, makeup, and styling teams waiting for hours while she figured out what to do in a state of panic.

Sounds to us like she really just should have relaxed and worn the original dress. There’s nothing wrong with two similar gowns on a red carpet.

  • Laura Mcgregor

    psstt… it’s a fucking dress

  • chrismb

    nice to see her life priorities are nicely in place… sheesh

  • Stilletto

    Remember when both actresses had boobs? Now they both look like they need a burger.

  • Buck Green

    Whatever Hathaway wears won’t help her. She’s not Audrey Hepburn.

  • John Koza

    It’s only a dress, girls…don’t get so uptight about it. Anne, you should have worn the original gown and be done with it. You probably would have felt better in the long run and who’s going to remember in 2 or 3 days anyway? You said it was a different dress and you manage to always look stunning so why get all upset? Wear it and wow them! Being quiet and accepting makes you come out on top.

  • Benjamin F. Barnes Sr.

    After having her snappers’ picture taken why would she worry about a dress.

  • Michael Schlesinger

    What’s the old saying? Women get upset if someone else is wearing the same thing, and men get upset if someone else ISN’T wearing the same thing.

  • shockdoc

    At least she wore a flattering pair of nipples.

  • Laurel

    No wonder that post-win group-hug w/Seyfried & another actress from the film that Hathaway did with them, as if she is the “Grande Dame”, was so friggin’ forced and artificial! It was to camouflage her anger! What a bad actress. Soooo transparent!

  • Shirley Hurwitz

    I use to like Anne, but now she has gotten too big for her britches!!!

    • glenn harvey

      She doesn’t wear britches – haven’t you been watching her limo disembarking photos?

      • Nana Judie Watson

        Glenn, Who sits and watches people get out of limo’s?

  • symone says

    i hope that this is hathaway’s biggest problem n life. seems she’d have a tad better perspective on what’s important after her difficulties of a few years back.

    anyway, i guess she showed them, wearing that boring prada. !! ;)

  • Elissa

    I cannot STAND Anne Hathaway. Anne GOAWAY please.

  • Wonderpup

    For such a mediocre performer, Hathaway keeps trying to grab the spotlight with her histrionics and diva-esque tantrums. Enough, Anne, no one really cares WTH you wear or what other terrible films you make.

    I would like Anna Hathaway a whole lot more if she became a drug activist.

    Ann Hathaway should be more concerned about that ugly haircut than a dress. Buy some extensions until it grows out. She looks like a little boy now.

    • Carl Vancil (@StygianAgenda)

      I couldn’t agree more!

      Anne looked absolutely gorgeous in some of her earlier works, but since cutting her hair, she looks pathetic… *almost as bad* as Miley Cyrus.

      What’s with women today thinking that taking away from their femininity makes them somehow more attractive? There’s nothing sexy about a woman that cannot be told apart from a man when viewed from behind… ever.

      • Genny Ott

        Most Females in the acting Industry and the real world, dont cut their hair to take away from their feminity, the end up cutting it due to damage, from heat, chemicals, (color, perms ) for roles they get that directors tell them they have to do it if they want the role, or choose for the role to be acurate on timeline and hairstyles for that timeline. ie: Jennifer Annisten a few years back on Friends,Courtney Cox also on friends, Alyssa Milano charmed, she even told in an interview it was because of the damage that was done for each acting job she got is why she cut it, and Anne has a face that can do a short cut, and still have beauty granted both her and Amanda could use a bit more weight i agree. but i believe the hair on both looks fine to me

    I just noticed…although the top of Anne Hathaway’s dress is Ok, the bottom looks like a pillow case. Seriously…like a pillow case was sewn onto a nice top.

  • Shmodrick

    The Devil wears Prada? But not always underpants…

  • TJB

    I never noticed how big her nose was until she chopped all her hair off

  • michael livingston

    I like Anne Hathaway and I’m not sure why other people don’t.

  • Billy Pilgrim

    It appears the Devil really does wear Prada

  • Mike Finland

    “nothing wrong with two similar gowns on a red carpet?”

    Are you crazy?

  • T

    I guess the title of this article should have read “First World Celebrity Problems”…

    • Mirana

      My sentiments exactly!!!

  • geoff_s

    Stll, you’ve got to admire Ann Hathaway’s neat 2nd choice idea of going dressed as a cottage?
