“No, we don’t read. This is ‘The Tonight Show.’ You want to go to Stephen Colbert if you want to get people to read books. Lame!” he quipped. As the audience burst into laughter, the late-night show host quipped, “We do Audible here.” However, Hathaway took the joke even further as she sarcastically asked, “What’s a book?”

Netizens were in awe of how they handled the situation as they flooded social media with praises for both Hathaway and Fallon. One fan wrote on X, formerly Twitter, “This is seriously so funny I can’t stop thinking about it.” “Anne is fighting for her life up there and handling it like a pro.”

One more fan quipped, “Anne Hathaway got Jimmy Fallon to [actually] be funny and banter for 10 seconds. Her f**king power.” Yet another fan said, “Jimmy actually was a great host in this situation!”

However, not everyone entirely loved the awkward moment as one fan expressed, “It landed! He nailed it! Then he dragged it for way too long.” One more wrote, “I felt it was funny but a put down of his show and his audience. Very self-deprecating to say that they don’t read—or really that no one reads books anymore. A punch in the gut. However, no Anne Hathaways were injured in the making of that comment
