LONDON - American actress Anne Hathaway has revealed that she must have been insane to agree to play the role of iconic singer Judy Garland, as she is not sure she has the talent to do the part justice. Hathaway, 26, is terrified about playing the role of the late star in a big screen adaptation of biographer Gerald Clarke’s 2001 book ‘Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland’.
“I think I’m either naive or insane to play her - maybe a little bit of both!” the Daily Star quoted her as telling the New York Daily News.
But at least Hathaway has the backing of another musical veteran, Garland’s daughter Liza Minnelli.
“I haven’t had a chance to talk to her about it yet, but I understand that as long as I treat Judy with respect - which of course I will - Liza is very happy about it,” she added. (ANI)
