Anne Hathaway and Stanley Tucci Interview About The Witches

Anne Hathaway and Stanley Tucci on Reuniting Once Again With an Iconic Soup Scene in The Witches

If you saw the original 1990 version of The Witches, chances are that Anjelica Huston's terrifying-yet-flawless Grand High Witch still haunts your dreams. So when we heard the Roald Dahl classic was being remade with the exceptional Anne Hathaway, we couldn't be more excited.

The new campy remake, also starring Octavia Spencer and Stanley Tucci, is in cinemas on December 10, and to celebrate the witches' return, we virtually sat down with Hathaway and Tucci. Chatting with the duo about some of their favourite behind-the-scenes moments from set, we learned that Hathaway used Huston as inspiration, but ultimately did her own spin on the character . . .


. . . and that Tucci's favourite scene was the "garlic" pea soup moment on the balcony — which fellow The Devil Wears Prada fans will probably recognise as their second iconic soup scene together.
