Amazon Prime Video turned the much-loved book The Idea of You by Robinne Lee into a steamy rom-com starring Oscar winner Anne Hathaway and Cinderella star Nicholas Galitzine.

The film, that is streaming on Prime Video, has revived the Anne Hathaway stans who love her for roles in The Devil Wears Prada, The Princess Diaries and Les Misérables and more.

Playing Soléne in The Idea Of You was a clear steer away from her usual characters but with Anne being the same age as her character she's said that the role felt extremely personal.

How much did Anne Hathaway get paid for The Idea Of You?

There are no official salary figures revealed for the cast of The Idea Of You however the most quoted report has been one released by Showbiz Galore who claim Anne was paid $7 million for her role as Soléne while Nicholas was allegedly paid $400k for his role as Hayes.

Of course, take this with a pinch of salt, these are not official figures!

Some think that the the $6.6 million difference in pay checks are fair with fans taking to Reddit to give their opinion. One said: "I mean I watched this movie mainly because of Anne Hathaway so yeah it makes sense she got the biggest payday."

Another said: "400k is quite a lot for an up-and-coming actor. Didn’t Chris Pine say he got 65k for Princess Diaries 2?"
