McAvoy says Anne Hathaways role in Rachel Getting Married worth an OscarNovember 28th, 2008 - 6:45 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Nov 28 (ANI): Hollywood actor James McAvoy is totally bowled over by Anne Hathaways performance In Rachel Getting Married, so much that he has tipped for her to get an Oscar.
The Wanted actor found the portrayal of Kym, a habitual substance abuser on weekend release from rehab to attend her sister’’s titular nuptials, by Hathaway worthy of an Oscar.
“Anne Hathaway has that indefinable quality of making an audience identify with the character she is playing,” Contactmusic quoted McAvoy as saying.
“At her sister’’s wedding, Kym constantly behaves like the most important person in the room. It would be so easy to dislike Kym, but Anne makes you feel that her character is perhaps in another room - both mentally and socially, albeit not physically, and therefore her calamitous outburst and limelight stealing seem like an ill-conceived attempt to connect, McAvoy added.
McAvoy revealed that Hathaways appealing acting made him actually weep during few scenes in the flick.
“I realised that her flailing arms and ”look at me” gusto were the result of a self-conscious and forced attempt to fit in. In the end we see her dancing with her eyes closed among a hundred or so people and she is completely alone, McAvoy said.
“That is a lot of empathy and understanding to garner from one shot, but Anne gives a performance so open and raw that I could not help but connect with Kym, even if her family was not able to do so, he added. (ANI)
