Anne Hathaway’s Career
Anne Hathaway’s Early Career
As Anne Hathaway was prolific in plays, she became a mature performer at a very young age. Although she was involved in a Fox television series ‘Get Real’, her true breakthrough came via a movie called ‘The Princess Diaries’ in 2001.
It was a Disney film that became a hit amongst teenagers and Anne Hathaway became a mainstream actress. But just as there was success, there was also a failure in the form of another Disney movie called the ‘The Other Side of Heaven’.
However, Anne Hathaway in Princess Diaries was so much appreciated by the fans that she was even type casted as a princess and got many similar roles.
But there was another side to Anne as an actress that was unfulfilled and waiting to come out on the screen. So, when ‘The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement’ flopped, she moved on to other roles.
All Grown Up
Then came movies that showed Anne in a completely different visage. She starred alongside the legendary Heath Ledger in ‘Brokeback Mountain’. The movie was completely different from the cutesy movies that she had starred in the early part of her career.
It was a whirlwind ride of emotions and sexuality. The film was successful, and Anne’s transition to a mature actress was complete. She also won several academy award nominations for the movie.
Later in 2006, Anne Hathaway’s The Devil Wears Prada was released. The movie was all about fashion and transformed Anne’s image from a cute actress to a fashionable diva. Her chemistry with veteran Hollywood actress Meryl Streep was also appreciated.
She even played wacky roles in ‘Get Smart’ where she donned the role of Agent 99. From 2009 to 2011, she constantly kept on experimenting with different roles of different shades. She also starred in the multi-starrer ‘Valentine’s Day’ alongside Topher Grace, her former boyfriend.
Real Success in Career

Her performance was regarded as one of the best in the movies. The Batman movie did extremely well and became one of the three highest grossing movies in 2012.
Apart from getting commercial success, Anne Hathaway broke new grounds with her critically-acclaimed performance in ‘Les Misérables’. She played the role of a dying prostitute, and she played with such finesse that she even got a ‘Supporting Actress’ Oscar for the movie.
Anne has also lent her voice in the movie ‘Rio 2’, which is another top-grossing movie in her successful career. In 2014, she starred in a top-of-the-line Sci-Fi movie ‘Interstellar’. It was another megahit for Anne Hathaway and Christopher Nolan partnership.

Anne Hathaway’s Personal Quotes
In Hollywood you have to be careful if you go above a six, then you`re considered fat. I`m considered to be, I hope, an actress, and you can get away with a couple of extra pounds if you are trading on your talent instead of your sex appeal. I don`t have time to be tortured about my weight.
I disagree with a couple of the stances of the Catholic Church. My older brother is gay and it’s important for me to be able to love him completely and freely and it’s important for me to spread beliefs in the world that are not going to limit people in their love.I can’t support a religion that doesn’t support my brother.
I used to believe that love was finding someone who would lead you through the deep water.
Quite frankly, I didn’t become an actor to become a movie star. I have never dreamed about being the most famous person on the planet. I just want to do really good work.
I believe I’ve always been a big believer in equality. No one has ever been able to tell me I couldn’t do something because I was a girl.
