Anne Hathaway Reveals Her Stoner Habits, Pokes Fun at Her Infamous Oscar Speech

Anne Hathaway celebrated 4/20 with two late night appearances – one on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and another on The Late Late Show with James Corden. Bravo host Andy Cohen got the Oscar-winning actress to dish the dirt during his “Plead the Fifth” segment, asking her how big of a stoner she was in honor of the pot-centric holiday.

“Not a little one,” she teased laughing. “But here’s the thing, here’s the thing though. I’m a parent and I don’t feel like getting arrested so I’m gonna say zero. I guess I just should’ve pleaded the 5th on that one, but I don’t have a card or anything.”

The Colossal star also wasn’t afraid to poke fun at herself. When asked who she was most excited to beat at the 2013 Oscars, she replied, “None of them, none of them. Believe me, at that point I would’ve been happy to see any of them up there giving a speech instead of me.”

When Cohen asked why, Hathaway laughed and said, “You know why,” referring to her infamous speech.

Over on The Late Late Show, Hathaway kept things more tame, but did take a moment to gush about her Ocean’s Eight co-star Rihanna.

“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,” she said of the “Diamonds” singer. “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.
