Anne Hathaway must be used to the haters by now, but these latest comments about her are going to make her even less popular with her critics.
According to an Argentinian journalist, the actress refused to shake his hand during a Los Angeles screening of her new movie, Interstellar, which she stars in alongside Matthew McConaughey and Jessica Chastain.
So, why did Hathaway decide to snub the journalist? Well, apparently she’s afraid of people from third world countries, just in case she contracts the deadly Ebola virus from them.
The journalist in question, Alexis Puig, revealed via Twitter that each one of the film’s big stars shook his hand when he interviewed them, expect for Ms. Hathaway, and he has some scathing comments for her because of her actions.
Taking to Twitter on Oct. 25, Puig tweeted about the Love & Other Drugs actress in Spanish, which, according to Radar Online, translates to, “Anne Hathaway didn’t shake my hand because she was afraid of Ebola #I’mAThirdWorldJournalist.”
However, Puig was very impressed with her costars.
In another tweet, which has also been translated by Radar Online, the journalist wrote, “Christopher Nolan, Matthew McConaughey and Jessica Chastain were genial in the interviews (and none of them denied me their hands). Take that, Anne!”
Whether the reasons for Hathaway’s snub were because she was afraid of someone from a third world country or for some other bizarre reason, she certainly hasn’t made a friend in this Argentinian journalist —and it’s not as if she needed any more Hatha-haters!
