Hathaway’s rep: She hasn't quit acting

Anne Hathaway’s representative has slammed reports the star is quitting acting because of online bullies.

The Oscar-winning Les Miserables star was subject to rumours this week she's throwing in the towel because she’s sick of being in the spotlight.

Anne was targeted with cruel online taunts last month when so-called “Hathahaters” came out of the woodwork to criticise her Academy Awards acceptance speech for best supporting actress and the dress she wore to the ceremony.

“Anne’s in shock and has been in tears over it nonstop,” a source told America’s Star magazine.

“She’s even sobbed to one friend that she feels like leaving the business for good and vanishing, like Brigitte Bardot,” the purported insider continued, adding, “She’s really worked herself up.”

A spokesperson for the promising 30-year-old star says the claims are completely unfounded.

To the contrary Anne is already gearing up for her latest movie.

“She is about to commit to her next project,” her representative told GossipCop.com.

Anne is soon set to begin work on animated adventure Rio 2.

The actress is voicing the lead character, Jewel, in the forthcoming Carlos Saldanha film about a couple who move their family to the Amazon. Rio 2 is scheduled to hit cinemas in 2014.

    Nissan tests self-cleaning paint that could make car washes obsolete

    During this vile, never-ending winter, motorists had three options to keep their cars clean: Shell out on regular car washes; slave away in the cold, wind and snow washing it yourself, or screw it and just drive a dirty car. I, like many, chose the last option. But if only I'd been able to test Nissan's self-cleaning car, all my troubles would have washed away.

    I tendered my resignation without securing the next job. Here’s why I don’t mind.

    I have committed a taboo – I have tendered my resignation without securing the next job. The reactions to the announcement were varied but they all pretty much hint at a deep sense of disapproval. “Why did you do that?” It was as if I had renounced my faith. “What are you going to do from now on?” Almost as though a misfortune had incapacitated me. “What does your family have to say about it?” As if I had offered to cook for the next family dinner. I was, and still am, certain of my reasons and motivations for the resignation. However the response I received got me thinking about why people are so concerned about the gaps in their careers. The developed world evolved from an agricultural economy to an industrial economy to the service age, then to the knowledge economy in the late 1990s and 2000s marked by breakthroughs in technological innovations and competition for innovation with new products and processes that develop from the research community. According to The Work Foundation, the knowledge economy is driven by the demand for higher value added goods and services created by more sophisticated, more discerning, and better educated consumers and ...
