She’s heaven, and it’s not like I didn’t expect her to be heaven, but the particular kind of heaven that she is, I just didn’t see that coming,” Hathaway told Corden, according to Entertainment Tonight. “We’d all be talking, all eight of us, and somebody would have this opinion, and somebody would chime in with this thought, and this, that, and the other and we thought we’d nail the subject, and Rihanna would be sitting back and then she’d go, ‘yeah but the thing is’ and she’d lean forward and just slay us all with the wit and kindness and lovingness and I just love her so much. I really do. Her life is one extended mic drop.

Anne Hathaway has made many rom-coms in her career, but none that take a turn like the one in Colossal. She plays an alcoholic writer who returns to her small hometown, where she reconnects with a childhood friend played by Jason Sudeikis and discovers that she’s somehow linked to a Godzilla-like monster terrorizing South Korea. David Edelstein says

“What I like about Colossal is that the Spanish writer-director, Nacho Vigalondo, has an elastic notion of genre. This is a film that starts off as a giddy comedy before plunging into a grim psychodrama about a woman’s loss and recovery of power, over herself and abusive males—that also happens to feature goofy-looking giant monsters throwing each other around Korea.”
