The 40-year-old actress, Anne Hathaway was a part of the 2014 epic sci-fi film, Interstellar which revolves around the journey of a group of astronauts who travel through a wormhole in search of a new place to inhabit by humankind. She played the role of a scientist who is among the astronauts traveling for the mission.

During the filming of an underwater scene in Iceland, she wore a special suit that would allow her to submerge in the water safely for a long time.

In an interview with the Telegraph, she shared,

“It was a scene where my character becomes submerged in water and trapped, so I go down in the water expecting it’s probably not going to be warm but I will at least be dry.”

However, the suit failed to serve its purpose as she shared,

“After about 10 seconds the suit is totally full of water.”

She continued to explain her then-situation,

“I don’t know what’s happening or why, but everybody is hurting and cold so I don’t say anything about it and wonder, ‘How long can this last?”

She knew that her condition was not great at the time which is why she was having doubts about whether it will end up for real for her.

Initially, the Bride Wars star decided to go with the flow as she did not want to disturb the filming set. However, her condition started to get more serious.

“Well, it did last and I became tingly and couldn’t feel anything and things were starting to get a bit hazy around the edges.”

She eventually decided to take action as she thought she would die in that condition.

“I thought Chris [Christopher Nolan] is going to be way more annoyed if I die of hypothermia than he is if I speak up about it and maybe delay filming for five minutes.”

She eventually informed the director about her scenario and later found out that the zip at the back of her suit was open before she went into the water. This was why the incident happened to her back then.

While it was a scary experience for her, with everyone’s hard-core efforts, the film grossed over $773 million with subsequent re-releases and became one of the best sci-fi films of all time.
