Anne Hathaway Has a Moment With a Parrot


Share this Post

It seems like just about everyone wants to give Anne Hathaway a little peck, and parrots are no exception.

The star received a little more than she bargained for when she posed with a blue parrot on her shoulder at the Walk of Fame inauguration event in Miami on Friday.

Instead of smiling pretty for pictures, the parrot began to nibble on the brunette actress’ hair and scalp. Ever the professional, Hathaway took it all in stride and maintained a smile during the encounter.

Of course, Hathaway is familiar with working with birds, or at least lending them her voice, as she plays Jewel in the animated franchise Rio. Jewel is a blue macaw who lives in Rio de Janeiro and meets her future partner Blu, a fellow blue macaw, voiced by Jesse Eisenberg.

Jamie Foxx, Kristen Chenoworth, and Jemaine Clement, who star in Rio 2 with Hathaway, were also at the event. They looked on as the parrot was removed and replaced with a white anteater, who caused the Les Miserables star to shriek with delight as it began nuzzling her ear.

Apparently Hathaway takes her work quite seriously and is willing to do whatever it takes to become one with the characters.
