Rihanna Boosted Anne Hathaway’s Self-Esteem by Telling Hathaway Her Ass Was Huge

Rihanna is good at compliments. I guess?

Rihanna and Anne Hathaway co-star in the upcoming Ocean’s 8 movie. The movie also stars a bunch of other women including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina and Helena Bonham Carter. If you’ve seen the Oceans franchise or any of the trailers, you know it’s about a bunch of men robbing places. In this case, it’s a crew of women instead of George Clooney and his merry band of brothers.

Ocean’s 8 is also a movie about female empowerment, showing that women can commit crimes just as well as men. That theory will be tested if it fails at the box office.

Hathaway stopped by the Ellen DeGeneres Show to plug the movie. She talked about how Hollywood makes women self-conscious about their bodies. Ocean’s 8 was her first role after birthing out her son, Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman, and Hathaway was feeling a tad nervous about her pregnancy weight.

“I don’t beat myself up about any of that stuff anymore, but after I had my son, the weight was really slow to come off and so I was a different size than I normally am.”

Translation: I was a bit pudgy.

Leave it to her female co-stars to pick up her chubby spirits.

“I walked on the set, and my weight’s a little up and I’m just aware of it and I’m in my jeans, and I’ve done my best and I’m gonna love myself no matter what. And Sandy Bullock looks up and goes, ‘You look good mama.’ And then Cate Blanchett’s like, ‘Nice jeans, Hathaway.’ And then Rihanna looks up and goes, ‘Damn girl, you got an ass.’ ”

And I of course was freaked out and loved it so much and I go, ‘Really?’ And she goes, ‘You got an ass like me.’ And I can honestly say I’ve never had that experience on a film set before.”

So Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett, who are size 2’s, troll Hathaway and tell her she looks good. Was this said with a straight face? Also, Rihanna basically tells Hathaway she’s a fatty just like her. Great, thanks for the support Rihanna.

After all these compliments, the male producers forced Hathaway to lose the extra weight because this is still Hollywood.

How can I put this nicely? She has a face for radio. It bummed me out when she was Cat Woman.
