In addition to having some really creepy physical features like claws, wig sores and a jaw that comes completely unhinged, she’s also got an enormous bullyish ego and an accent that has a really funny origin story. Our Sr. Content Director Janeé Bolden chatted it up with the star about her role, finding that really distinct accent and her favorite Halloween memory. Check out their convo below:

Okay so the accent origin story was a little bit long but it was far from boring. We wigged all the way out over that noise she made! Anjelica Huston was incredible in the original version of this film but Anne Hathaway is amazing in the update. She definitely gave us chills! Who are some of your favorite witches on film?
