Anne Hathaway dismisses report of near drowning

21 January 2014, 11:43

Utha - Don't worry, Anne Hathaway is OK.

Recently paparazzi photos circulated of the Oscar-winner on vacation in Hawaii with her husband. In some of the photos its seemed like the actress was having an emergency while in the ocean. Reports stated she had gotten caught in a riptide, was injured and had to be rescued.

While attending the Sundance premiere of her movie Song One, Hathaway said: "I'm fine. ... I really do appreciate everybody's concern but that was a picture that had a false story attached to it. The real story is not as interesting."

She also joked to a reporter that someone told her to say she was playing Charades and "pulled Titanic".

Song One stars Hathaway as a woman estranged from her family but returns home when her brother is in a serious accident. While she deals with her emotions as her brother is in a coma, she explores the Brooklyn music scene.

Hathaway does sing in the film and says it was far less pressure than when she had to sing I Dreamed a Dream for Les Miserables.

"It wasn't as much pressure because my character is not a singer, a musician anything, so there is no pressure to, I don't know — to please the fans of the music I guess," she said.

Song One is directed by Katie Barker-Froyland and also stars Ben Rosenfeld, Johnny Flynn and Mary Steenburgen.

This video was posted on YouTube related to the incident:
