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.
And that's awesome — for the most part, it's a delightful movie. London! Notting Hill, specifically! Hugh Grant! The most '90s wardrobe ever! True love!
Wait, let's go back to the true love part because we need to talk about how Anna Scott is THE. FUCKING. WORST.
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?
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.
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.
HE'S STILL COOL WITH THAT THOUGH AND ANNA RUNS TO WILL WHEN PHOTOS ARE LEAKED AND SHE HAS NOWHERE ELSE TO GO.
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:
And Will's face? Just 50 shades of devastated.
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."
But since the world is a terrible place HE GOES AFTER HER AND ENDS UP APOLOGIZING EVEN THOUGH HE DID NOTHING WRONG.
Oh, finally you two will be together? JOY TO THE FUCKING WORLD.
HAVE SOME SELF RESPECT, WILL.
THERE'S STILL TIME TO GET OUT.
Somebody put me out of my misery.
