Hollywood star Anne Hathaway at the Sundance Film Festival revealed a creepy question she was asked by a journalist when she just started her career in acting.

Her upcoming film 'Eileen', a darkly funny thriller that was premiered on Saturday at the Sundance Film Festival, offers up two killer roles for Hathaway and Thomasin McKenzie as a psychologist and a prison secretary who are drawn together in unexpected ways.

But the film carried an emotional resonance for Hathaway, she revealed to the crowd during a post-screening Q&A, reports 'Variety'.

"I just remembered one of the very first questions I ever got asked when I started acting and had to do press was: Are you a good girl or a bad girl?" Hathaway said.

"I was 16. And my 16-year-old self wanted to respond with this film."

Hathaway said she decided to sign up for 'Eileen' after seeing director William Oldroyd's acclaimed 2016 drama, 'Lady MacBeth', which starred Florence Pugh as a woman trapped in a miserable marriage to a much older man.

"I thought it was an extraordinary work," Hathaway said.

"I saw a study of female complication that hit me really, really deep, and I felt like Will was a filmmaker that could be trusted to tell complicated stories, especially about females."
