Dear Anna Scott: Fuck You

Come on, Hugh Grant.

Posted on

So if you’re a fan of rom-coms, it’s probably safe to say that you’ve seen Notting Hill. You know, the movie where Hugh Grant is just a sweet, bumbling Brit who meets the most famous woman in the world, Anna Scott, who's played by Julia Roberts.

What's that you're saying? "Will Thacker and Anna Scott are meant for each other and blah blah"? That's a lie. Anna Scott is a terrible character no matter how awesome Julia Roberts herself is.

Remember when Will was all like, "How 'bout some tea?" and Anna was like, "Cool," and then Will showed up and she was actually in the middle of a PRESS JUNKET?

So then Will had to pretend to be a writer from Horse and Hound because Anna didn't have the decency to cancel/postpone the hangout or tell someone to have him wait for her somewhere else like a fucking adult?

There are literally 10,000 things Anna could have done rather than have him humiliate himself by pretending to interview the cast of a big budget, Hollywood movie. But I guess it's hilarious putting people on the spot like that!

It's all fine and Will still asks Anna out for that evening. At first she says no but soon changes her mind so they go to dinner at his friend's place. Then she tries to win the pity brownie at dinner by talking about how difficult life is as a world-famous movie star when she JUST told Bernie she made $15 million for her last film.

Also, Bella is sharing how she's a paraplegic who can't have kids but Anna thinks her want for privacy and the fact that eventually good looks fade might compare?

OK and now we have to talk about the lying. Anna literally invites Will up to her room, not realizing her BOYFRIEND is there. Sure if my boyfriend was Alec Baldwin, I'd probably try and keep it a secret, but still, COME ON GIRL.

Now Will has to pretend to be room service because Anna decided not to let him know that she had a bloody boyfriend in the first place!

HE'S STILL COOL WITH THAT THOUGH AND ANNA RUNS TO WILL WHEN PHOTOS ARE LEAKED AND SHE HAS NOWHERE ELSE TO GO.

And he shelters her and takes her mind off of a shitstorm of a personal scandal.

But let's ignore that when his roommate fucks up and calls the paps. So instead of giving Will a chance to speak and work through everything, she decides to blame him and pretty much be rude AF.

So now we're at the part where Will visits her on set because for some ridiculous reason he misses her. When her costar asks who he is, Anna drops this pile of horseshit everywhere:

Oh really? This "no one" who YOU randomly kiss. Who YOU went out to dinner with and met all his friends. Who YOU went out AGAIN with to a movie. Who tried to defend YOU when some strangers were being dicks. Who YOU invited up to your room and then kicked out because your boyfriend who YOU didn't tell him about showed up. This "no one" then sheltered YOU when you were hit with a scandal and came to check in on YOU before you decided to pretend like you didn't know him.

We could have just called it a day but that's not enough for Anna, is it? She has to show up and tell Will that she's just a girl standing in front of a man, asking him to ignore all of her crap. AND apparently she said that pile of horseshit because her costar is a gossiper or whatever.* Luckily, Will is merciful and is like, "Fuck this shit."

*Here's a possible rewrite of the scene:

Co-star: Who's that?

Anna: An old friend/an acquaintance/my brother.

END OF SCENE.

But since the world is a terrible place HE GOES AFTER HER AND ENDS UP APOLOGIZING EVEN THOUGH HE DID NOTHING WRONG.

So I guess it's OK to treat another person like dirt as long as you're famous and mysterious and have a great smile.
