Anne Hathaway Is Too Pretty For Jane Austen Role, Descendant Says
And now Anna Chancellor, who is a direct descendant of Austen, has slammed the decision to transform her esteemed relative into a ravishing beauty. She says, "In my mind Anne Hathaway is just too pretty to play her. Jane was a very plain woman. Her beauty was in her brain. But that's what Hollywood does."
The British-made film will tell the story of Austen's doomed love for Irish lawyer Tom LeFroy, played by James McAvoy, which floundered because LeFroy's financial prospects failed to impress Austen's family.
