I've learned that nothing is quite as divisive a dinner conversation topic as whether or not you like Anne Hathaway. Thankfully, the set of her new film, "The Intern," is a bit more of an across-the-board crowd pleaser: A charming, lived-in Brooklyn brownstone inspired by one famous creative's real-life abode.

In the film, Hathaway plays the young founder of a fashion website, who gets paired up with a father-figure in her senior (citizen) intern, played by Robert DeNiro. Director and designer Nancy Meyers, who is also behind the sets for "Something's Gotta Give" and "It's Complicated" (both made The Kitchn's favorite movie kitchens list), wanted Hathway's character's home with her husband to be "youthful yet sophisticated."

Nailed it, I think. It's hard not to, when the inspiration for this movie home is the real brownstone of J. Crew Creative Director Jenna Lyons.
