About Anne Hathaway

Hathaway was born on November 12, 1982, in Brooklyn, New York. Her father was an attorney and her mother was an actress. At the age of six, Hathaway saw her mother appear as Fantine in Les Miserables on stage. It was then that she fell in love with performing, she says. Seeing how much she was drawn to it, Hathaway’s parents wanted to discourage her from pursuing acting. So, her mother quit and began to stay home with her children.

Growing up, Hathaway was a devout Catholic. She has even said at times she dreamed of being a nun when she wasn’t dreaming of being an actress. Her brother eventually came out as gay though and the family wound up converting to the  Episcopal Church. Later, they stepped back from their religion completely as a family. In 2009, when asked, Hathaway said her beliefs were a “work in progress.”

Despite her parents trying to discourage it, Hathaway was drawn to the stage. During high school, she became the first teenager admitted to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Throughout high school, she also sang in the All-Eastern U.S. High School Chorus. And, before she could enter her first semester in college, she began filming on the set of The Princess Diaries (2001).

At the start of her career, people likened Hathaway to a young Judy Garland. In the same year she debuted in The Princess Diaries, she also appeared in the Disney film The Other Side of Heaven. Suddenly, she was booking work left-and-right. Directly after The Princess Diaries, she started doing voice work for a British children’s program.

Being labeled Hollywood’s “princess,” she went on to film Princess Diaries 2 and Ella Enchanted. But as she grew, her fans grew too. So, she began to pursue more adult roles. In 2005, she starred alongside Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in Brokeback Mountain. Then, the following year, she was cast in her next “adult role” in The Devil Wears Prada.

Since then, she has starred in Bride Wars, Love & Other Drugs, The Dark Knight Rises, Don Jon, Interstellar, and the film adaptation of Les Miserables, among numerous other titles. She has also voiced characters in animated films and TV shows as well. Hathaway has voiced characters for the hit show Family Guy as well as the children’s animated films Hoodwinked and Rio. Most recently, she has appeared in Ocean’s 8 and now The Witches.

Currently, Hathaway is traveling to promote The Witches and has run into some controversy. It is yet to be seen if this will impact her ability to get work in the future. She is already working on several projects to debut in the next few years, so it is likely she will continue earning at a high rate.
