Anne Hathaway apologises for criticising Pinterest planners

The actress admits her crafting skills leave much to be desired.

Anne Hathaway personally apologised to fellow actress Brie Larson after jokingly taking aim at party planners like the Room star's mother.

The Les Miserables star had a little rant about professional party planners during a recent appearance on America's The Ellen DeGeneres Show, after struggling to replicate ideas from social app Pinterest for her son Jonathan's first birthday bash in late March (17).

"I made the mistake... I went on Pinterest and looked at other people's one-year-old parties," she explained. "It's not fair what some people do. Party planners have children, which is definitely not fair. Think about it. They blow it out (go over the top and post pictures online)."

Anne and her husband Adam Schulman ended up throwing a more casual affair with a simple rainbow theme for their little boy, but she subsequently felt terrible about her TV comments after learning Brie's mum is the perfect example of parents who love to plan elaborate parties for their children.

"I have to apologise to the party planner mums on Pinterest because I saw Brie Larson the other day and she told me that her mum was a party planner," she told U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America on Monday (17Apr17). "So I was like, 'Oh, I kinda threw shade (criticised) at your mum then! I'm sorry!'. So I apologised to Brie and her beautiful mum.

"Shout-out to all the mums who are so good (at crafting)," Anne added as she explained her lack of creativity in that department. "I am not, that's not me. I'm good at creating very loving messes, and so this birthday was no different."
