Anne Hathaway’s dip in the ocean—proof that the big blue isn’t always Mother Nature’s most relaxing asset. While in Hawaii on vacation with her hubby Adam Shulman, the Oscar winner decided to take a serious swim, professionally decked out in a wet suit and all. We’d imagine she must have enjoyed at least a few seconds of her time in the water, but cameras caught a heart-pounding situation that makes us think otherwise.

While in the ocean, Anne was seemingly caught in a dangerous riptide, gasping for air and throwing her arms above the waves in distress. If you remember anything about being at the beach (and hearing those shriek lifeguard whistles), it’s that riptides are no joke and being swept out to sea is sadly, totally possible. The thought is almost too terrifying to discuss.

So what’s the good news we can take out of this situation Anne experienced? She was safely guided to shore and embraced her hubby in what looks like relief and happiness.


OK. But really, we’re kind of teary-eyed right now. The lesson learned? Swim safe and watch those crazy tides, kids!
