“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.”
Early Life and Career
Anne Jacqueline Hathaway was born on the 12th of November 1982 at Brooklyn New York, USA. She has the height of 5'8, her eye's color is brown same as her hair. Her life long goal is to sing on Broadway. She made her acting debut in the 1999 television series Get Real, but her first prominent role was in Disney's family comedy The Princess Diaries (starring opposite Julie Andrews), which established her career.
She continued to appear in family films over the next three years, with lead roles in Ella Enchanted and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement in 2004. Anne would later venture away from the "G-rated" image her early acting career bestowed upon her, starring in the adult-themed films Havoc and Brokeback Mountain. Anne became well known as the leading actress for the movies The Devil Wears Prada, Ella Enchanted, Becoming Jane and the wife of the rancher Jack Twist. And this year she had a latest movie with Kate Hudson entitled Bride Wars.
Anne Hathaway was the first and only teenager admitted to the acting program at the award-winning The Barrow Group in New York City. She is also a first soprano and, just three days before being cast in Get Real, had the privilege of performing in two concerts at famed Carnegie Hall as a member of the All-Eastern U.S. High School Honors Chorus.
Hathaway is involved with various charities, including The Creative Coalition, The Step Up Women's Network, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, The Human Rights Campaign, and The Lollipop Theater Network, an organization that screens films to critically ill children. In 2008, she was honored at Elle magazine's "Women in Hollywood" tribute, and has also been honored for her work with The Step Up Women's Network and The Human Rights Campaign.
In early 2007, Hathaway spoke of her experiences with depression during her teenage years, saying that she eventually overcame the disorder without medication.
