Anne Hathaway As Judy Garland

March 24, 2009 / Posted by:

Anne Hathaway got so close to licking Oscar’s head, so now she’s got a craving for him in a bad way. Which explains why she’s going to play Judy Garland in both a film and stage version of the biography Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland. Anne will obviously do anything to an Oscar including getting her legs chopped off, because she’s like five hundred feet tall and Judy was only like 4’11”! Unless they are going to pull some BENJAMIN BUTTON’S SHIT and CGI Anne’s head on a little body. That would be entertaining.

The Weinstein Company, who is producing this mess, issued this statement of words: “We are thrilled to have the brilliantly talented Anne Hathaway portray stage and screen legend Judy Garland. I have worked with Anne on projects in the past and have known her for many years. She will be a true class act in this challenging role.”

Why does Hollywood feel the need to do this again?! Judy Davis already conquered this shit a few years ago. I don’t hate HATE hate Anne Hathaway, but she’s not the one.

If Hollywood must do this again, they should at least make it interesting by casting Liza Minnelli as Young Judy (she was born to play the role) and Tammie Brown from RuPaul’s Drag Race as Older Judy. Now that would be worth sneaking into with your friend using one paid ticket. I got caught doing that once and my dumb ass response was, “Oh, we had to buy two?
