Actress Anne Hathaway reminisced about the beginning of her career, recalling an audition where she had to fake excitement about kissing ten boys, describing it as "gross." In an interview, Hathaway shared that back in the 2000s, it was normal to ask actors to make out with potential co-stars during chemistry tests. "Which is actually the worst way to do it," she told V Magazine, as reported by "I was told, 'We have ten guys coming today and you're cast. Aren't you excited to make out with all of them?'

She elaborated, "And I was so young and terribly aware of how easy it was to lose everything by being labelled 'difficult', so I just pretended I was excited and got on with it. It wasn't a power play; no one was trying to be awful or hurt me. It was a very different time, and now we know better."
