Anne Hathaway Jokes She Forgot About Physics When Going Down a Slide with Her Son: I Was ‘Shaking on the Inside’

Anne Hathaway has been a mom for a little over a year now, but there are definitely still moments where she’s learning the parenting ropes.

Stopping by The Tonight Show Monday, the Colossal star admitted she may have bitten off a little more than she could chew recently when she took her 1-year-old son Jonathan Rosebanks down a slide at a N.Y.C. park.

“I noticed the kids weren’t going that fast so I thought, ‘Okay, I’ll bring Johnny on the slide,’ ” Hathaway told Jimmy Fallon. “So I get to the top of the slide — and just for any girls in the audience, [I was] in a skirt, which was dumb — so I pull the skirt around me and I put Johnny there, and we’re going down the slide, and now the moms are watching.”

“But what I hadn’t thought about was physics,” continues the 34-year-old Oscar winner. “So you have a 35-lb. child going down, it’s one speed, you have me and my son, it’s like … not 35 lbs., so we just go around the corner and instead of slowing down like the other kids, we speed up.”
