Earlier this week, news broke that Hathaway is in negotiations with Sony to replace Schumer in the live-action "Barbie" movie. Schumer, whom was originally cast back in December, had to step away from the role due to scheduling issues.
Hathaway received some backlash online from those disappointed with a more traditional approach to portraying the iconic pretty doll. Schumer, however, didn't seem to mind the idea of Hathaway as Barbie.
"Hathaway smathaway," the comedian started an Instagram post, "jkjk she's perfect!! Can't wait to see it!"
The "Barbie" movie that was being written with Schumer in mind was going to depict the doll struggling with her identity after being kicked out of Barbieland due to her imperfections. It's unclear if the storyline will be altered with a new star playing the part.
