On her feet were a pair of gold open-toe heels with ankle straps.

The movie is adapted from Robinne Lee novel of the same name, and stars Hathaway as 40-year-old single mother Solène Marchand. Solène meets a 24-year-old music star named Hayes Campbell, played by Nicholas Galitzine, and they embark on a romantic relationship that sets tongues wagging.

After the film, Hathaway and Galitzine spoke at a post-screening Q&A at Austin’s Paramount Theater, and Hathaway became emotional as she thanked the audience for an extremely warm reception to the romantic comedy.

“I can’t talk,” she said in a video clip shared by Variety.

A fan called out, “I love you!”

Hathaway responded, “I love you so much. You have no idea the gift that you’ve just given us with your responsiveness, by being so connected to every little nuance in this. I will never forget this screening.”

She continued, “For some reason, we talk about coming-of-age stories as being something that happens to you in the earliest part of your life, and I don’t know about you, but I feel like I keep blooming. So when Cathy [Schulman] and Gabrielle [Union] so generously offered me the part, I was thrilled to say yes.”

Galitzine also shared how special it was to work with Hathaway, saying their chemistry was immediate.

“These rooms can be extremely intimidating and unnatural, but there was something almost spiritual that happened there, whereby I felt this immediate connection to Annie,” he said. “We had a simpatico, a shared sense of humor. It was just very easy. I remember leaving that room thinking, ‘Regardless of what happens with this, I am so proud of this special thing that happened there.’ They gave me a call the next day: ‘We want you to be a part of this movie.’”

The film was directed by Michael Showalter and produced by Gabrielle Union.
