She mooned Jim Sturgess on set between takes.

As Anne Hathaway continues her press tour for promotion of One Day, she revealed her mischievous side with a stop on the Today Show on Thursday.

Today’s Matt Lauer asks her point-blank if she really mooned her co-star, Jim Sturgess, while on set.

“While you were shooting this movie on a street in Scotland where women and children could see you?” asked Lauer.


“It was a locked off set,” said Hathaway. “The problem was the street was locked off, but we were in front of an apartment building.”

“It was a little naïve,” admitted Hathaway. Lauer then points out that there were people with cameras, and asks if Hathaway has Googled herself lately.

“No, I’m terrified by what I might find,” she says.

Hathaway says that she has been mooned plenty of times on set, but had never returned the favor until this project.
