Anne Hathaway's Lip Sync Battle Will Change Your Life

Every so often something comes along that’s so fantastic, so amazing, that it’ll change your life forever. That’s what happened to Luxe Models when we saw Anne Hathaway doing a skit on Spike TV’s Lip Sync Battle.

The woman who has it all

The rise, rise and rise again of Anne Hathaway is all the proof we need to determine once and for all that life isn’t fair. She’s talented, successful, kind and boasts a killer eye for fashion. She even managed to pull off the cropped look after she was forced to have her hair shaved off in Les Miserables; that’s just impressive.

Plus as fashion enthusiasts we have a secret (so not secret) shame. We’re massive fans of the Devil Wears Prada. Hathaway plays the film’s lead role; the style-blind woman who starts working at one of the world’s premier fashion magazines and suddenly develops a fabulous eye for designer clobber. We seriously wanted to find that set and steal every single outfit she wore post-makeover!

Anne Hathaway pulls a Miley Cyrus

Now we have another reason to love her. She can laugh at herself! We made this discovery when we caught a clip of Hathaway pulling a Miley Cyrus on Spike TV’s Lip Sync Battle.

The show is based on a similar sketch on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show. It pits famous names against each other as they pull off their best pop star impressions and mime along to some of the chart’s biggest hits.

She came in like a wrecking ball!

Hathaway went head to head with Devil Wears Prada co-star Emily Blunt. We’ve only seen a trailer at this point but this one-minute clip was enough! Picture this. The beautiful A-lister strides on stage in a white vest and trackies (Vicky Pollard, we think Anne Hathaway stole your outfit!) and starts soulfully miming along to the opening lyrics of Miley Cyrus’ ‘Wrecking ball.’

It doesn’t end there. She goes further in her quest to imitate the ultimate post-modern pop culture provocateur. She strips down to a bizarre vest and pants set before climbing up onto what we can only imagine is a fake wrecking ball, which proceeds to swing over the audience. As the balls hits maximum momentum, Hathaway does her best ‘aggressive Miley’ and writhes around on top whilst sticking her middle finger up to Blunt.

We need to see the full thing

Mind, blown. Yours will be too if you take a minute out of your day to watch this amazing clip. We need the full version of this skit to air, like, now. It could change the world for the better!
