Anne Hathaway is Jewel, one of two remaining blue macaws in the world. Hathaway’s Jewel lives in Rio and is set to be matched with the Jesse Eisenberg-voiced sole remaining male macaw to save their species.
Like Blu (Eisenberg), we too flew to Rio to meet Hathaway and had a nice chat on one of the world’s most famous beaches — Copacabana.
Anne talks Oscars, the movie Rio, being in Rio and how this actress has gone from onscreen princess to princess of Hollywood in the span of her career. Hathaway relished the opportunity to voice Jewel in Rio, but the requirement that she sing in the film, specifically for Sergio Mendes and Will.i.am as they mixed the soundtrack, was even scarier than taking the Oscar stage as host in front of a billion people.
