Reports have emerged that Anne Hathaway refused to shake the hand of an Argentine journalist because she was afraid of catching Ebola. Er, what?
Anne was publicising new film Interstellar, due for release on November 5th, when she declined to shake Alexis Puig’s hand. Outraged, the journalist took to Twitter berating the thirty-one-year old star of Les Miserables saying: "Anne Hathaway didn’t shake my hand because she was afraid of Ebola #I’mAThirdWorldJournalist!"
Apparently fellow Interstellar star Matthew McConaughey and director Christopher Nolan had no problem shaking the journalist’s hand which raised questions about Anne’s motives for declining contact.
The actress has vehemently denied the rumours saying that she was in fact sick and didn't want to pass it on to anyone else, however no other journalist has come forward with claims of being snubbed by the actress.
Considering the fact that Argentina is Ebola-free, it has been suggested that Alexis is purely seeking publicity on the back of the Oscar-winning actress, but it doesn’t seem like the journalist is going to let this one go.
Yet another story for Hathahaters to feast on.
