She added that during that time she failed to realize that she would be known as Anne Hathaway from that time onwards, for the rest of her life. The star also pointed out that only her mother calls her by her first name every time she is mad at her. And so, this is the reason why she becomes alert every time when she is called “Anne” out in the public. The actor says that upon hearing someone call her Anne, she is quickly kept on her toes.

The Devil Wears Prada personality revealed the fact that most of her co-stars have given her a bunch of different nicknames throughout her acting career. While sharing the stage with the host, Jimmy Fallon, she shared the fact that she prefers to be called “Annie”.

Anne Hathaway went on to mention that nobody calls her by her first name while she is on set. People either call her Miss H, or Hath. She cleared it out that she is a total Annie and not Anne. Later on the show, when asked about her celebrity crush, the actor called out the name of Leonardo DiCaprio.
