Anne Hathaway  NY is my city. LA is my town.

Please join me in congratulating the awesome @danaigurira on her new role as a @unwomen Goodwill Ambassador! I am looking forward to working alongside you on the path to gender equality.

My country gassed children.
There are no words for my horror.
To those who will immediately speak of “doing it the right way”, who will “blame the parents for putting the children in this position”, or say “they were storming the wall”, and “they were throwing rocks”: the only human response to this monstrous use of force against LEGAL asylum seekers- against children- is condemnation, shame, and rage.
For those that still believe in voting for the man who recommended using lethal force on families fleeing violence and persecution: this is the policy you like?

🎃👻🎃Happy Halloween 🎃👻🎃 #MummyDearest #ImWithTheBand(age)

Adam and I join in the worldwide mourning of 11 innocent lives lost in Pittsburgh this weekend.
We join in the forceful, worldwide, ongoing condemnation of White Nationalism, Anti-Semitism, and all forms of hate.
We reject communities that are formed around the hatred, marginalization, and oppression of any group or religion under the flimsy cover of "free speech".
We are full of sorrow, and we remain unbowed.
Our hearts are broken, and we do not despair.
We are full of love in the face of hate, as has been asked of us, always.
We close our eyes and remember that the message of every great martyr and spiritual teacher has reflected the same truth: the path is clear, long, difficult, and worth it.
We open our eyes and see that path which is made of, and has always led to, love.
The glory of the soul is our true inheritance.
We take the next step together.

Silence is not an option when the stakes are this high, and while the release that comes with posting righteous anger and outrage feels potent, I worry it is proving ineffective at actually reaching those who need to hear the message most. This leaves me no option but to let my anger take a back seat and offer this moment to love.
To my trans siblings*: you have given us so much light to guide on the path of love- thank you, from the bottom of my heart. To all the trans children out there: I love you. You matter so much. I can’t wait until you grow up and teach us what comes next.
Yes, I speak love here, but make no mistake: all the love and light in the world is nothing without action and justice, and so I will also get out and #VOTE for the rights of Trans Americans, and I will #VOTE against anyone threatening to dim the brightness of our shared future.
To anyone rolling your eyes at this issue, or who thinks this doesn’t affect them: wise up, friend. We’re all in this together and the lives of our fellow Americans are under attack from the very top. I know this issue may feel challenging to some of you, but your feelings are not more important than another human’s intrinsic right to freedom and existence.
*thank you to those who took the time to clue me into the more appropriate non-binary language. Heard.

#DeeRees, powerful on her @nymag cover and powerful in life. I’m so proud to have worked with her on #TheLastThingHeWanted

I keep thinking how we move through things so quickly these days (how could we not?); I know my personal capacity to absorb something new is often maxed out. For example, a movie opens, we are “obsessed” for a weekend, we move on. I do this too: even when I really love something, I get distracted by the next thing, don’t fully digest the experience and I quickly move on, like the world exists only to entertain me, like great art is unlimited, that my consumption of it as an everyday all-you-can eat buffet is acceptable.
We are so fortunate- a ton of worthy, excellent movies are going to come out between now and the end of the year, and our plates are going to become increasingly full. That said, I think A Star is Born is so special, so ambitious, so audacious and so brilliantly human that it shouldn’t just be a news story for one weekend.
Even being so excited about what’s coming out, I want to really luxuriate in appreciation for A Star is Born. I saw this film back in August at the Venice Film Festival and I still walk around feeling lucky I was in that audience.
This film surprised me in the best possible way; it even killed some cynicism that I didn’t know had snuck into my heart.
I loved it.
I hope you see it.
Bravo @ladygaga.
Bravo #bradleycooper.
Thank you.

Update: To all the men and women who are asking “what about boys”?
There is a historic, seismic imbalance between the investment in girls and boys worldwide, especially when it comes to education, with boys overwhelmingly reaping the lion’s share of the reward. In a great deal of the world, educating girls is wrongfully seen as a waste of resources. Programs like this are aiming to level the playing field and evolve the outdated, all-too-common view that boys are more valuable than girls into one of inclusion and equality. I am proud to support any program or way of thinking that seeks to provide this kind of inclusivity and balance. The current reality is that girls need our help because of this generations-old imbalance, and this push towards equality is being done without excluding boys.  I appreciate your intent, but this type of “whatabout-ism” is upholding an incredibly harmful and unfair status quo (which I can only hope is the opposite of what you want.)
All the best,

Love and support everything about this. When girls receive an education, amazing things start to happen: poverty goes down. Economies grow. Families get stronger. Babies are born healthier. And the world, by all accounts, gets better. That’s why on the International #DayoftheGirl, I’m proud to join @MichelleObama and the @globalgirlsalliance to stand up for adolescent girls’ education—because the future of our world is only as bright as our girls.

#FBF to last week when I had the honor of speaking with Prime Minister @JacindaArdern of New Zealand with my incredible @UNWomen bosses #PhumzileMlamboNgcuka and @enyamayaro about the exciting and necessary work the PM is doing to increase #PPL in NZ (I also got to meet her daughter Neve!). I ALSO got to moderate two panels at the @UNWomen global summit with some of our brilliant #heforshe #impactchampions- these are the men who are helping break through the glass ceiling, top down (thanks guys! ‘Bout time! 😉). So grateful and proud to be a part of this! Check out their concrete commitments to #genderequality at the link in my bio x
