A few days ago we told you about this famous actor who lied about his age to get his first role. Today we return to another big Hollywood lie, Anne Hathaway, who said she was superstitious as hell that she could play Jake Gyllenhaal’s on-screen wife, Lauryn Twist, in The Secret of Brokeback Mountain.
“When I finished auditioning for The Secret of Brokeback Mountain, the last thing the director said to me was Ang Lee It was “Oh, by the way, do you know how to ride a horse?”Anne Hathaway saidon the occasion of the ten year anniversary of the film.
“My parents gave me many gifts in life and one of those pieces of advice was, ‘If someone asks you if you know how to do something, say yes.’ You can learn anything in two weeks if you’re motivated.”continues the actor. “So I, who had never been on a horse, said, ‘Oh, I’m a very good rider!’
That’s why Anne Hathaway trained very intensively to ride horses, but… for almost nothing! “I’ve become a very, very good rider”Kudos to the actor, again for the Out site. “But I had to ride a horse on set that only obeyed the sound, so I couldn’t control it. I found myself rehearsing in front of 300 extras, some of whom were rodeo pros, with a horse that wouldn’t obey. Which is what I wanted.”
For reference, Anne Hathaway auditioned for The Secret of Brokeback Mountain during her lunch break while she was filming A Princess Wedding at the same Universal studio. “I remember being very, very calm, which is unusual for me under any circumstances, especially at the age of 21.”he notes. “I just felt focused, kind of like a predator: I knew what I wanted.”
Released in theaters in early 2006, the western The Secret of Brokeback Mountain tells the story of the passion experienced by two men, a rancher and a rodeo specialist, who meet in the summer of 1961 between Wyoming and Texas. directed by Heath Ledger,Michelle Williams and Anne Hathaway, the feature film won three Oscars, including Best Director.
