7 Responses to “Anne Hathaway Interested In Singing As Judy Garland In GET HAPPY”

  1. I was impresssed with Anne Hathaway in Rachel Getting Married, but I just don’t see her as a good fit for this role. She doesn’t look like Judy Garland, doesn’t sing like Judy, and while she might have good acting chops, the right spirit just wouldn’t be there. Biopics are sensitive because you aren’t just dealing with a character- you’re dealing with someone who actually existed. Think of Marion Cotillard as Edith Piaf and then imagine Anne Hathaway doing the same thing as Judy Garland. I just can’t see it.

      Well she already has the part, it is just a matter of whose voice they will use for the singing parts. Hathaway is hands down one of the most talented actresses working today.

    I love Anne as an actress. But NO ONE can capture Judy Garland’s unique voice. Judy Davis did a great job as Garland. Wisely the artistic team behind” Me and My Shadows” used Garland’s voice, and it was very effective.
    I think any actress in her right mind would find this to be true.

    I’ve always thought Hathaway had a classic 1940s/50s Hollywood look/appeal, I think she’d be perfect for the role.

    On November 21, 2010, Anne Hathaway hosted Saturday Night Live. One of the sketches that evening was a spoof on “The Wizard of OZ. I was shocked! Anne looked exactly like Judy Garland at the age of 17 when Judy made the movie. Anne could talk like Judy, she had Judy’s (Dorothy’s) body movements and, yes, she can sing! Although this was just a comedy sketch, I would ask anybody who has any doubts about Anne Hathaway’s abilities to play Judy Garland to see this sketch. It is on You Tube. I say Anne will win an Oscar and give Judy Garland’s fans a movie they will be proud of!
