Anne Hathaway Beats Paparazzi to the Punch with Empowering Baby Bump Photo

Anne Hathaway Was Totally Starstruck By Mariah Carey
It's strangely comforting to know that even celebrities get starstruck

The least you could do is let her choose the filter.

Anne Hathaway took baby bump photography duty into her own hands by posting a precious bikini photo on Instagram after noticing that paparazzi were trying to take her photo from afar.

 

“Happy 2016 to my beautiful Instafriends!” she writes in the caption. “So, posting a bikini pic is a little out of character for me, but just now while I was at the beach I noticed I was being photographed. I figure if this kind of photo is going to be out in the world it should at least be an image that makes me happy (and be one that was taken with my consent. And with a filter.)”

“Wishing you love, light and blessings for the year ahead! ⚡️Annie⚡️”

Hathaway has not publicly confirmed her pregnancy to the press. She and her husband Adam Shulman were married in 2012 after dating for four years. Catch her on the big screen when Alice Through the Looking Glass hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
