At the Sundance Film Festival, Hollywood star Anne Hathaway revealed a scary question a journalist asked her when she was just starting her acting career.

Her upcoming film Eileen, a darkly funny thriller that premiered Saturday at the Sundance Film Festival, features two killer roles for Hathaway and Thomasin McKenzie as a psychologist and prison secretary who are drawn together in unexpected ways.

But the film had an emotional resonance for Anne Hathaway, she revealed to audiences during a Q&A after the screening, Variety reports.

“I just remembered one of the very first questions I ever got when I started acting and had to do press: are you a good girl or a bad girl?” said Anne Hathaway.

“I was 16. And my 16-year-old self wanted to respond with this movie.”

Hathaway said she decided to sign up for Eileen after watching director William Oldroyd’s acclaimed 2016 drama “Lady MacBeth,” which starred Florence Pugh as a woman trapped in a miserable marriage to a much older man.

“I thought it was an extraordinary job,” said Anne Hathaway.

“I saw a study of female complications that touched me very, very deeply, and I felt like Will was a filmmaker who could be trusted to tell complicated stories, especially about women.”

As good as Hathaway is as a mysterious doctor who forms a homoerotic bond with a fellow prison officer, McKenzie, playing a young woman who is largely overlooked and forced to care for her alcoholic father, the film can give the most surprising twist. That’s partly because of her on-screen Massachusetts accent. It’s a dialect that has gotten many veteran performers into trouble, but one McKenzie nails despite having to overcome some geographic hurdles.

“I love my accent,” McKenzie said.

“I’m a very proud New Zealander, but I find it quite distracting myself.”

On set, whether on “Eileen” or “Last Night at Soho,” where she had an impeccable English accent, McKenzie said she spoke her character’s voice throughout the shoot.

“It’s really fun at the end of a job when I bust out my Kiwi accent and the crew says, What’s this?” she said.

Eileen was made into a film by Ottessa Moshfegh, the author of the novel of the same name, and Luke Goebel (‘Causeway’). Moshfegh, who has become a literary sensation with critically acclaimed works such as ‘My Year of Rest and Relaxation’ and ‘Lapvona’, said she hopes to direct a film one day.

As for Oldroyd, he says he believed “Eileen” could move seamlessly from page to screen, in part because of its unique tone.

“I like … dark, strangely funny, weird stories,” he said.
