Oscar-winning star Anne Hathaway has admitted that she is not comfortable when people call her by her first name, adding that she prefers to be referred to by her nickname Annie.

"Let's spill the tea. When I was 14 years old I filmed a commercial and I had to get my SAG card and they asked me, 'What do you want your name to be?'" Hathaway said on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon", reports people.com.

"I'm like, 'Well it should be my name, my name is Anne Hathaway'. That seemed like the right choice but it never occurred to me that for the rest of my life people would call me Anne," she recalled.

She continued, "The only person who calls me Anne is my mother, and she only does it when she's really mad at me, like really mad. So every time I step out in public and someone calls my name, I think they're going to yell at me. People are like, 'Anne!' And I'm like, 'What? What did I do?'"
