Hathaway Feared She Didn't Measure Up To Streep's Standards
ANNE HATHAWAY was terrified MERYL STREEP thought she was too inexperienced to be her co-star, after the Oscar-winner constantly talked about all the other "brilliant" young actresses she had worked with in the past. The BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN beauty teamed up with Streep in THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA and was convinced she wasn't making much of an impression on the acting icon. She explains, "I got a little neurotic whenever she would mention other young actresses she had worked with that were 'brilliant'. "I thought, 'Oh, no, she's saying that because she doesn't think I am and I don't measure up!' "(Actresses) like LINDSAY (LOHAN), like CLAIRE DANES. She's obsessed with Claire Danes! "There would be certain times that I would actually have to stop a take because I was so neurotic about what she was thinking that I just couldn't remember my lines. "But she was completely cool. She was very supportive and never made me feel like she had to deign to work with me."
