Anne Hathaway admits the all-women “Ocean’s” film might attract some unwanted attention, but that doesn’t mean she’s worried.

Hathaway, 34, dished to Time’s Motto about her upcoming movie, “Ocean’s 8”. The reboot features an all-female cast and has people already drawing comparisons to the criticism faced by the all-women reboot of “Ghostbusters”. You may recall “Ghostbusters” became the most disliked movie trailer ever on YouTube, racking up over one million dislikes and ranking as the 11th most-disliked video of all time.
The “Princess Diaries” star explained why the new “Ocean’s” movie might face similar obstacles. “When I’m a second or a third lead in a film — usually the first and second leads are men — my character doesn’t feel political. When I’m number one on the call sheet, it suddenly becomes a ‘woman’s story’ and it’s a statement.”
“That’s the moment that we’re in. In this movie there are eight women starring, so it may well attract that sort of attention,” she admits, before quipping, “but good luck to any person who tries to take on Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett because you’re not going to win.”
