In January, Reese Witherspoon gave up the female lead role in Nancy Meyers’s The Intern, which stars Robert De Niro as an old dude who decides to gain some workplace experience at a clothing website. (Witherspoon inherited the role from Tina Fey.) On Friday evening, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Anne Hathaway is now in talks to swan around Meyers’s tasteful, earth-toned office space. The choice makes sense, as Hathaway has the same earnest, backlash-prone vibe we’ve come to expect from certain corners of the online start-up world.
