The thing about crossovers is that the best ones are those that we least expect. Aside from the wish fulfillment we get from these moments, we’re also reminded that the world really isn’t that big after all. And that moment came when the queen of Genovia, Anne Hathaway, and the prince of England, Nicholas Galitzine, met Miss Universe 2018, Catriona Gray.


ICYDK, Anne and Nicholas are currently busy promoting their new movie, The Idea Of You. The film, which is adapted from the novel of the same name by Robinne Lee and reported to have roots in Harry Styles fanfiction, follows Solène (Hathaway), a 40-year-old single mom who begins an unexpected romance with 24-year-old Hayes Campbell (Galitzine), the lead singer of August Moon, the hottest boy band on the planet. And in their flurry of press interviews, one of those was a virtual chat with Catriona Gray. 

Whoever at Prime Video thought of this idea needs a raise. Not only are we loving this Catriona, Anne, and Nicholas interaction, but Cat is also a skilled speaker, a trait that came in handy during the interview. While Catriona only had five minutes to do the interview, she made the most of it with interesting questions that went beyond the typical press interview. 

“How do you feel that your character or the film itself speak to women who may have felt this way or resonate with those types of feelings,” asked Catriona to Anne on the source material’s message on older women wanting to be seen, to which the Oscar-winning actress responded, “I think Robinne [Lee] tapped into something very real that’s not fair and it’s sort of shameful in its truth and the best way to get rid of it is to change it by making something that lives in defiance of it. And then once it’s living, it’s undeniable and hopefully brings people joy.” 

Nicholas, meanwhile, was asked about emphasizing his character’s off-stage persona rather than on-stage, to which he answered, “He’s looking for that connection, maybe not consciously, but when he finds Solène, it nourishes him and imbues him with this energy that I think he’d been missing a lot of his life.” With these thought-out questions, it’s no wonder the two actors complimented and acknowledged Catriona’s inquiries. Imagine being praised by the Anne Hathaway? That’s Catriona Gray for you. You could tell they were connecting with what Catriona was asking them. We need Prime Video to bring these three in the same room ASAP and maybe a project, too. A Catriona cameo in The Princess Diaries 3 is all we ask. 

Is this the start of Catriona’s Hollywood correspondent era? We hope so. She brings a breath of fresh air to press tours. Also, if this has gotten you excited to watch The Idea Of You, you can catch it on Prime Video beginning May 2.
