That Time Rihanna Complimented Anne Hathaway On Her Butt

Anne Hathaway Rihanna Ocean's 8

Rihanna is a fan of Anne Hathaway's bottom, and the musician wasn't afraid it admit it to her face. While promoting their new heist movie, Ocean's 8, which hits theaters this weekend (read our review here), Anne Hathaway sat down with Ellen Degeneres to discuss the supportive energy that infused the set of Gary Ross' new movie. Ocean's 8 was the first project Anne Hathaway worked on since giving birth to her first son, two-year-old Jonathan. Hathaway felt slightly subconscious about her weight, but thankfully everyone on set was extremely supportive of Hathaway's figure. But she gained her biggest fan from Rihanna. The "Work" singer was very impressed with Hathaway's bum, and she fawned the actress with compliments.

Here's how Anne Hathaway described Rihanna's adoring comments for her butt on Ellen.

I walked on the set, and, you know, my weight's a little up and I'm just aware of it. And I walk on the set and I'm my jeans, and I've done my best and I'm going to love myself no matter what. And Sandy Bullock looks up and goes, 'Looking good, mama!' And it made me feel amazing! Cate Blanchett's like, 'Nice jeans, Hathaway!' And then Rihanna looks up and goes, 'Damn girl, you got a ass!' And I, of course, freaked out and loved it so much. I was like, 'Really?!' And she goes, 'You got an ass like me!

While Anne Hathaway has been boosted up by her Ocean's 8 co-stars, the actress is ready to shut down any haters. She just preemptively clapped back at fat shamers as she prepares for her next role, which requires her to gain some extra weight. Hathaway reminded them that if they take issue with her newfound weight, it's their problem, not hers. Plus, Rihanna has got her back, and you never want to mess with Rihanna.
