At forty-one, Anne Hathaway has long since disregarded the advice she frequently received as a teenage performer, stating that a woman’s career in Hollywood would not succeed if she pursued it past a certain age. “When I started out 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 recently said in an interview with Porter, the digital title of Net-a-Porter. .
”The thing that has evolved during [that time] is that more women are having careers deeper into their lives, which I think is fantastic. Obviously, it doesn’t mean we should have a ticker tape parade — someone said this to me the other day: ‘There’s so much to be proud of and there’s so much to fix.’”
With the breakthrough popularity of Disney’s “The Princess Diaries,” which she filmed as a teenager, Hathaway’s acting profession got underway in 2001. Parts in Oscar-nominated classics like “Brokeback Mountain” and teen fables favorites like “Ella Enchanted” ensued. Hathaway spoke of being an actor to the media outlet as “such a sweet feeling to know that you’re kind of woven into someone’s life.” She said, “I can’t describe the honor of knowing that I’m involved in the moments where people need comfort. It makes me really excited that my journey as a performer has connected with people. I love [when] projects have a life beyond their initial release.”
Hathaway’s performance in “She Came to Me” received great acclaim most recently, and the independent psychodrama “Eileen” will premiere next month. She thrived past the age of 35. Earlier this year, Hathaway made news by talking about her career as a teenage actor at the Sundance Film Festival, where “Eileen” had its global premiere. Hathaway stated during the film festival. “I just remembered one of the very first questions I ever got asked when I started acting and had to do press was: Are you a good girl or a bad girl? I was 16.”
