Anne Hathaway joins Occupy Wallstreet protesters, One of the 1% sure, but can still agree with the 99%
We’re not sure what Anne Hathaway is making to play Selina Kyle/Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, but it places her with Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne firmly in that top 1%. One of the top 1% who agree with the 99 about the faulty priorities of a government that’s been bought. The 29 year old actress who is reportedly worth $58 million joined the Occupy Wallstreet protestors yesterday carried signs reading “Blackboards not Bullets” and “Blackboards not Bank Accounts.”
She is one of Hollywood’s highest paid actresses and lives a very privileged lifestyle that 99 per cent of people can only dream of.
Still, Anne Hathaway acted as an average Joe and accompanied hundreds of protestors as she joined the Occupy Wall Street demonstration in Manhattan’s Union Square.
The 29-year-old, who is worth a reported $58 million, was pictured marching with protesters and sticking it to the man yesterday in The Big Apple.
Anne, whose films have made approximately a total of $3,202,600,000, tried to blend in with the crowd by wearing a black hooded jacket, grey hat and sunglasses. The Oscars hostess held up a sign in support of the campaign that read: ‘Blackboards not bullets’.
Occupy Wall Street is an ongoing protest that began September 17 2011 in New York City’s Zuccotti Park in the Wall Street financial district.
As the day went on Hathaway transformed her appearance from peaceful protestor to more of an anarchist look.
She swapped her original sign for a smaller lighter one that was easier to carry.
The new sign read: ‘Blackboards not bullets’, which was a clear statement in support of students and education.
