Anne Hathaway started the New Year by letting the paparazzi know that she is not someone they can mess with, hitting back at them with great dignity.
The actress, who revealed she was pregnant in November, posted a bikini photo on her Instagram profile after the paparazzi took pictures of her during her vacation. She flaunts her baby bump in the image and smiles at the camera as the waves crash on the beach behind her.
Hathaway wished her followers a happy New Year before explaining why she posted such a photo in the first place, saying that if everyone is going to see this kind of picture of her, ”it should at least be an image that makes me happy (and be one that was taken with my consent. And with a filter :)’’
Well said, Anne!
Happy 2016 to my beautiful Instafriends! So, posting a bikini pic is a little out of character for me, but just now while I was at the beach I noticed I was being photographed. I figure if this kind of photo is going to be out in the world it should at least be an image that makes me happy (and be one that was taken with my consent. And with a filter 🙂 Wishing you love, light and blessings for the year ahead! ⚡️🦄Annie🦄⚡️
