Word is that the Oscar nominated but never winning, Anne Hathaway is in talks to play the glorious explosion of a person that Judy Garland was in the new book to film, Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland.
By glorious explosion of course I mean her pill popping, drunken train wreck to hell days that celebrities over the age of 30 barely give us in these times. Judy got Anna Nicole bad, and I’m sure Anne’s dying to prove what we already know…she deserves that damn Oscar. ‘Anne dearly wants to do a musical and this could be her chance. The big attraction is that it really will be her singing, not recordings of Judy. She is determined to do it justice. ‘If she nails the part, she will be a shoo-in for some big awards.’
Fingers crossed Anne, we know you can do it.
If this gets made, I don't know what I'll do with myself. I do like Anne, I do, but she certainly cannot handle the singing (yes, I know Anne is a good singer, but you will never convince me that she could handle Judy's style). Guys, I am shaking and crying right now. Reasons why I believe this wouldn't work:
-Anne singing? Uh... not as stron. Judy was 4'11", I can't see Anne being able to convincingly play someone so small. Plus when Judy gained weight, I don't see her being able to pull off that either. They also don't look alike at all (if anything she looks more like Liza). And Anne playing later Judy I can't imagine. Even her speaking voice was pretty unique and I can't see it working on Anne without sounding forced. Just please just bring back Judy Davis. Or an unknown who is small and good at lip synching.
P.S. Because some of you don't know.. I not actually crying, and I am not taking this as seriously as it appears. I just don't like this idea, I'm not going to kill myself over it.
