Anne Hathaway wants to play the name game.

During a chat with Jimmy Fallon this week, the actress bemoaned the fact that people call her "Anne," despite that being her birth name. She's hoping that people can learn to call her "Annie."

"When I was 14 years old, I did a commercial, and I had to get my SAG card and they asked me, 'Well, what do you want your name to be?'" she began. "And I was like, 'Well, it should be my name. My name's Anne Hathaway.' So that seemed like the right choice, but it never occurred to me that for the rest of my life, people will call me Anne."

For the most part, she says only fans and movie posters call her "Anne."

"The only person who ever calls me Anne is my mother, and she only does it when she's really mad at me," the "Locked Down" star continued. "Like, really mad."

Anne, er Annie, said she always thinks she's in trouble when people call out her birth name.

"Every time I step out in public and someone calls my name I think they're going to yell at me," she said. "People are like, 'Anne!' And I'm like 'What? What did I do?!'"

Her co-workers even have "workarounds" when they address her because "the truth is nobody's comfortable with" calling her Anne.

"It doesn't fit," she said. "I'm an Annie. People call me H, people call me Hath, so feel free, call me anything but Anne."
