Anne Hathaway says researching her role as British Emma Morley in 'One Day' led to her learning a lot about music in the UK
Anne Hathaway learned about British music while shooting 'One Day'.
The 28-year-old American actress spent time in the UK while filming the movie, and particularly enjoyed the film's soundtrack and learning about cult hits in the country from her British co-star Jim Sturgess.
She told BANG Showbiz: " I knew about S Club 7 before and I mainly know about Robbie Williams from his episode of 'Cribs'. But when we were doing the scene when Jodie Whittaker sings his song 'Angels', I was actually the only person who didn't know it. And then 'Sex Bomb' came on. I got quite an education from Jim! He turned me on to Stone Roses."
Anne has been spotted at underground events in Dalston, East London, since filming the movie, and she admits she loved getting the chance to experience a different side to the British capital.
She added: "The best thing was I got to make so many new friends and explore areas of London I've never seen before. There's a really wonderful creative scene here that I found very nourishing."
