Can we all please stop hating on Anne Hathaway

So, Anne Hathaway plays Emma Morley in One Day. This, according to some fans of David Nicholls’ stupendously popular book of the same name about the will-they-won’t-they friendship between a Yorkshire lass and a Cotswolds posho, is not a good thing.

Because Anne Hathaway, as you will know if you saw The Devil Wears Prada or Love & Other Drugs, is gorgeous, talented and American. What she’s not, as the One Day trailer confirms, is a sour-faced English poppet who can deliver a convincing Dales drawl.

But hold up one pudding-chewing minute. Her compatriots are happy to forgive British actors their abysmal US accents (*cough* Ray Winstone *cough*) so how about cutting Hathaway a little transatlantic slack? We’d certainly rather watch 90-odd minutes of Hathaway with wonky glasses and wonkier vowels than a home-grown actress with authentic “ee by gums” and a face as grim as the tide-line on a coalminer’s bathtub.

If you agree, One Day is out in cinemas today. If you don’t, Last of the Summer Wine will be showing on UKTV Gold from now until the apocalypse.
