Anne Hathaway’s Many Opinions
Famous for her Oscar-winning performances, porcelain skin, big doe-eyes, full lips, wonderful singing voice, and unique sense of style, Anne Hathaway is truly a celebrity and a fashion icon in every sense. Her red carpet moments never fail to get the attention of photographers, reporters, designers, and fans alike.
Anne and I met when we were living in the same building in New York City (a building called The Archive, in the West Village). When I went to the apartment she moved into from there (with her then boyfriend), I was floored. It was really fit for a superstar. White marble everything, white furniture, floor to ceiling windows with incredible views, a study with elegant wood paneling, and a giant spiral staircase to the second floor. While her digs were certainly not modest, Anne (or Annie, as she likes to be called), always has been.
“Annie has such an irrepressible spirit and is a lot of fun to work with and to just be with,” says Meryl Streep. “I love her because she is so game and up for anything. She has a goofy side, but her talent is deep and serious. She has done some challenging work in the past few years, and she is simply unafraid to jump off the high dive.”
‘Annie’, as her friends call her, is inspiring for many reasons. For one, she supports many charities and causes. Her brother is gay, and she has spoken out many times about gay rights. In fact, in 2012, following her wedding, Hathaway announced that the money raised from selling her wedding photos would be split between Freedom to Marry (which campaigns for gay couples to have the right to wed), the American Cancer Society, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and The Girl Effect, a non-profit which helps impoverished young women. With all the charity work she does, she really takes her position as a celebrity role model seriously.
With several film awards under her belt, she is unquestionably in the spotlight. Reading about Anne Hathaway everywhere gathers mixed reactions from both the media and practically anyone who feels entitled to his or her own opinion. In the midst of the good and bad reactions, Anne speaks up with confidence about her ways and her perspectives in life, both in and out of showbiz.
