Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway spotted in Chatham
A Chatham mum spotted A-lister
Anne Hathaway - as she went incognito on a local history tour.
The Hollywood star was doing a spot
of research on the Historic Dockyard, Chatham, where she has been
filming for her role as a dying prostitute in blockbuster musical
The cast of the film, which stars
Russell Crowe and Hugh Jackman, were rumoured to be back on set
But eagle-eyed mum-of-two Jo Lord
spotted the actress taking a day off on the dockyard’s Victorian
The Maidstone Road resident was on
the tour with former colleagues from her job in the MOD bomb
disposal school in Lodge Hill, Chattenden, last Tuesday .
Mrs Lord, 38, said: "Nobody clocked
her. She was wearing walking boots with slouchy socks and baggy
jeans that looked like they belonged to a boyfriend. She kept very
quiet and was writing in a notebook.
"I thought, ‘That looks like Anne
Hathaway!’ but thought she was too skinny. I was more looking out
for Russell Crowe and Hugh Jackman so it was a real surprise.
"I forgot about it until The
Princess Diaries was on over the weekend. I Googled her and
realised she was on a crash diet for the part."
The 40-minute tour is set in 1875
and shows punters how to make their own rope.
Mrs Lord added she only clocked the
star because her daughter Hannah, 19, was a huge fan of the 2001
She said: "She will probably be
very embarrassed, but it’s thanks to Hannah I spotted her."
