A walk down the red carpet often resembles something of a tornado of flashing lights, rolling cameras and demanding reporters. Last night was no exception. At last night's AFI Film Fest premiere of 'Love and Other Drugs' (starring Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal), something rare and peculiar occurred. We just so happened to catch an LA Times blog that reported a story that most people missed...

Anne Hathaway was walking down the red carpet answering questions about her latest film (in which she plays a woman experiencing an early onset of Parkinson's Disease) when a reporter cut in asking about her 'get-in-shape-fast secrets.' Without hesitation, Anne's publicist quickly snapped, 'Does anyone have a serious question about the movie?' and helped Anne move on to the next question. You can tell that, for a fraction of a second, Anne didn't quite know what to do, but she handled the moment with class .

Celebrities answer questions about their body, weight, diet and exercise routines all.the.time. Yes, Anne has answered these types of questions before, and we've blogged about her jerk of a personal trainer, RRW ADversary™ David Kirsch regarding his work with Victoria's Secret models last year, but this was a rare moment caught on camera. RARELY do we get to see a reporter admonished for asking inappropriate questions about an actor's body.

For this, we give huge kudos to Anne and her publicist for taking the high road. We don't know about you, but this put a little spring in our step today!

Here's a question... What if we had more celebrities and their publicity machines refuse to pander to gossip reporters who just want to talk about a person's body, beauty and weight? Hmmm... food for thought...

Here's the LA Times blog (and video)...
