Anne Hathaway isn't one to shy away from her New Jersey roots. 

The One Day actress, who grew up in Cape May, NJ, recently admitted that she's a fan of MTV reality show, Jersey Shore. 

"When I first saw the show, I thought, 'Wow, they are having a very different experience there than my experience in Cape May,'' Hathaway told Chelsea Handler during a chat for Interview magazine. "I thought the first season of the show was awesome because it was authentic, but I don't watch it any more because now they know that there's a camera there."

She called out one cast member in particular for taking advantage of the ever-present cameras. "The Situation is totally self-aware. He's referring to himself as 'The Situation' non-stop. In the episode I saw, his car got towed, and he was like, 'We've got a situation here, and The Situation is the situation.'"

While the actress may not be a fan of self-promotion, she does admire one of the Shore's other stars: Jenni "JWOW" Farley.

"I think JWoww is amazing," the, who'll also be appearing as Catwoman in Christopher Nolan's upcoming The Dark Knight Rises, admitted. "I love JWoww. She's intense. See, JWoww to me is proper Jersey because she will scrap for a friend."

When Handler ribbed Hathaway about reminding her of another Shore star, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, the actress joked: "I like to watch MTV for escapist pleasure, but when I saw Snooki, I saw my twin. I couldn't lose myself in the show anymore because there I was."
