Anne Hathaway Unveils Terrifying Transformation In 'The Witches' Remake
To think this is the same woman who once played the prim Mia Thermopolis in The Princess Diaries!
You can watch the video here:
The 37-year-old The Devil Wears Prada actress shared some behind-the-scenes clips with her 18.5 million Instagram followers, along with several teasers taken from the upcoming movie.
"Here's the think you need to know about witches," she says in the short video. "They're real. They're here, and they live amongst us."
The video goes onto explain some freaky facts about witches, including the fact they have hands and not claws, they don't have any toes, they all have large nostrils and are all bald underneath their wigs.
They also apparently have elongated mouths, and Anne showed off her enormous Joker-style grin in one scene which really gave us the creeps.
"What has a witch ever done to you? Stream #TheWitchesMovie in @hbomax October 22. Internationally in cinemas soon #WitchesAreReal," she wrote alongside the post.
Fellow co-stars Octavia Spencer, Jahzir Kadeem and Stanley Tucci featured in the clip alongside Anne, all looking suitably scary.
