Anne Hathaway Biography

Anne HathawayAnne Hathaway Biography

Born: 12 November 1982

Birthplace: New York, New York
Best Known As: The young star of The Princess Diaries and The Devil Wears Prada

Anne Hathaway broke through in the 2001 Disney comedy The Princess Diaries (with Julie Andrews and Mandy Moore), as an awkward American teen who learns she's really a princess. The movie was a box office success and Hathaway was suddenly a rising star: tall, dark-haired, with a screen persona that mixed naivete with determination. She then co-starred in 2002's Nicholas Nickleby (based on the novel by Charles Dickens), and was cast as the lead in 2004's Ella Enchanted, in which she sang a duet with pop star Jesse McCartney. She also starred in a 2004 sequel to her original hit, The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement. In a conscious move to break away from her position as a star for young audiences, Hathaway took on darker, edgier roles in 2005, appearing in Barbara Kopple's Havoc (with Channing Tatum) and Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain (as Jake Gyllenhaal's long-suffering wife). Her other roles include a star turn opposite Meryl Streep in the comedy The Devil Wears Prada (2006), as author Jane Austen in the mostly-made-up biopic Becoming Jane (2007), in an Oscar-nominated performance as the lead in Rachel Getting Married (2008) and as the White Queen in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland (2010).
