Why Anne Hathaway Is the Perfect Choice to Play Barbie

Family |

Anne Hathaway could prove to be a much cannier choice than Amy Schumer for the upcoming toy-inspired movie.

It’s a strange day when Anne Hathaway is in talks to take a role that originally went to Amy Schumer, but here we are. The Oscar-winning actress is in talks to star in the upcoming Barbie movie, a long-gestating project that, in its last incarnation, would have starred the stand-up comedian as a doll who gets kicked out of Barbieland for not being perfect enough.

But while these two actresses seem to have little in common, this role could actually be a perfect fit for Hathaway. She’s already demonstrated her comedy chops, but could perhaps stand to remind the viewing public that she can, indeed, make fun of herself just as well as (or perhaps even better than) anyone else.
