Anne Hathaway is 41 years old, which means she has long defied the warning she often heard as a teenage actress that her career would not prosper beyond a certain age as a woman in Hollywood.
“When I started as a child, I was warned that my career would fall off a cliff at the age of 35, which is something I know a lot of women face,” Hathaway said recently. goalkeeper magazine. “What has evolved over (that time) is that more and more women are having deeper careers in their lives, which I think is fantastic. Obviously, that doesn’t mean we should have a ticker tape parade; “Someone said this to me the other day: ‘There’s a lot to be proud of and a lot to fix.’”
Hathaway’s acting career began in 2001 with the huge success of Disney’s “The Princess Diaries,” which she filmed as a teenager. She followed roles in teen fantasy classics like “Ella Enchanted” and Oscar-nominated dramas like “Brokeback Mountain.”
“It’s such a sweet feeling to know that you’re woven into someone’s life,” Hathaway told the magazine about being an actor. “I can’t describe the honor of knowing that I am involved in the moments when people need comfort. I am very excited that my journey as a performer has connected with people. “I love (when) projects have a life beyond their initial release.”
Hathaway recently earned rave reviews for her role in “She Came to Me” and next month will release the independent psychodrama “Eileen.” It’s clear that she has continued to thrive after age 35. “Eileen” had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, where Hathaway it was news for talking about her career as a teen actress.
“I just remembered that one of the first questions I was asked when I started acting and had to do press was: Are you a good girl or a bad girl?” Hathaway said at the film festival. She “she was 16 years old.”
“Eileen” opens in theaters December 1 on Neon.
