Anne Hathaway as Judy Garland

There was an item on IMDb today in which Anne Hathaway said she was "terrified" to take on the role of Judy Garland in a biopic now in the works. While I've been intrigued by her casting in the part ever since it was announced a few months ago, I haven't been able to envision Hathaway as Garland. I don't doubt her skill as an actress or vocalist; it seems she has embarked on an interesting career covering both areas. I also believe that she could nail that blend of bravado and self-deprecation that made Garland so endearing. I think I'm still a bit unsure because I can't envision Hathaway playing a woman with the loopy fragility that Garland had (she is fragile in Rachel Getting Married, but in a more aggressive way). I think that will be the most difficult aspect of Garland to portray. However, if she pulls that off, she will be sensational in the role. I can't wait to see how she does.
