Anne Hathaway Undressed
Anne Whitney Hathaway (born November 12, 1982) is an American film and stage actress. She came to fame in 2001, after starring in the family film, The Princess Diaries, and has since established a career as a Hollywood actress, starring in the films Ella Enchanted, Brokeback Mountain, and the upcoming The Devil Wears Prada.
Hathaway is a trained stage actress, and has said that she feels more comfortable on stage than in film roles. Her first major role was in the short-lived television series Get Real. She gained widespread recognition for her starring roles in The Princess Diaries (2001) and its 2004 sequel, playing a teenage girl who discovers that she is a member of royalty. Since the success of the two films, Hathaway had a notable role in the 2002 film production of Nicholas Nickleby, opposite Charlie Hunnam and Jamie Bell, and a starring role in 2004's Ella Enchanted, playing a fairy tale princess. Hathaway, who is a former top-ranking soprano, was reportedly a front-runner for the role of Christine in the 2004 film adaptation of The Phantom of the Opera. However, due to scheduling conflicts with The Princess Diaries 2, she could not take the role (which was eventually played Emmy Rossum).
Hathaway has moved away from appearing in family films, playing supporting roles in the dark R-rated films Havoc and Brokeback Mountain, opposite Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal; Hathaway appeared topless in both films. Her next film will be the The Devil Wears Prada, in which Hathaway plays an assisant to a malicious fashion magazine editor (played by Meryl Streep, whom Hathaway described as being "just divine"). Hathaway describes the film as a statement about a maturing young woman in the work force.
Hathaway enjoys reading and notes Interior decoration as a hobby.
When Hathaway was fifteen, she decided against becoming a nun after discovering that her brother Michael was a homosexual, citing that she "couldn't support a religion that didn't support my brother". She is now a Non-denominational Christian, specifying that she hasn't "found the religion" for herself.
