HOLIDAY: Anne Hathaway,

DON'T worry, Anne Hathaway is okay.

Recent paparazzi photos circulated of the Oscar-winner on vacation in Hawaii with her husband made it look like she was having an emergency while in the ocean.

Reports stated she had gotten caught in a riptide, was injured and had to be rescued.

While attending the Sundance premiere of her movie Song One, Hathaway said: "I'm fine. ... I really do appreciate everybody's concern, but that was a picture that had a false story attached to it. The real story is not as interesting."

JOKED

She also joked to a reporter that someone told her to say she was playing charades and pulled Titanic.

Meanwhile, fellow actress Lindsay Lohan is attending her first Sundance Film Festival.

The 27-year-old came to the independent cinema showcase to announce that she will produce and star in a film called Inconceivable, set to start shooting in March.

She was joined by producer and financier Randall Emmett, who called Lohan, "One of the greatest young actresses of her generation."

Lohan said she is grateful to be at Sundance and back in the movie business. "I've never had the honour of coming here before ... to bring something to the table, which is starting fresh for me," said Lohan, smiling broadly. "And I'm filming my Oprah docu-series right now, so I get to show that.

"It's a nice change to be back among people that are in the industry that I've been in since I was a kid."

Emmett said Lohan found the script and insisted they make it together. Lohan will also help select the director and cast the film. The director is expected to be announced next week.

Lohan described the film as a psychological thriller about a woman trying to reclaim something she lost, adding that she, "related to the character in a lot of ways."

Meanwhile, Moone Boy star Chris O'Dowd was also on the Sundance red carpet as he joined The Guard writer and director John Michael McDonagh at the premiere of the film Calvary.
