Why Anne Hathaway Says Kissing Actors in Chemistry Tests Was So “Gross” – E! Online



The film, based on Robinne Lee‘s book of the same name, stars Anne as Solène, a 40-year-old art gallery owner who forms a romance with Hayes Campbell (Nicholas Galitzine), the 24-year-old lead singer of the boy band August Moon.

And when it came to chemistry reads for her and Nicholas, Anne didn’t have to use kiss tests to know he’d be right for the role.

“I remember laughing when Nick walked in because he was so ridiculously perfect for the part,” she said, “I just thought, ‘He is it.'”

And what of the rumors that Hayes is based on Harry Styles? Anne claims there is no truth it.

“Everyone needs to chill,” she told E! News in March. “Sorry, I probably shouldn’t be that reactive about it. I just think no.” 

Even Nicholas helped shut down the rumors.

“It’s become this thing in of itself,” he explained to E! News. “We have tried to distance ourselves from that, and I think Hayes is such a wonderful character in of himself. There were so many amazing references we used: BTS for a lot of the choreography, which was really great. There’s so many references out there.”
