Anne Hathaway opens up in the November issue of Elle UK, about her battles with fame and how it f*cked her up.
She was 18 years-old in 2001 when her first film, Disney's The Princess Diaries was released.
She tells the mag, “This fame thing? F*cked me up for a really long time. I didn’t know how to do it. I didn’t know how to engage with it.”
She continues, “It stressed me out. And people would say, ‘You just have to be yourself,’ and I was like, ‘But I don’t know who that is yet!’”
Now that she is older she is much more relaxed: ‘The thing I’ve learned this past year is to chill out. I think when you’re young and struggling to find yourself, there’s something alluring about the idea of being tortured.”
“Life for me these days is a lot about letting the unknown be wonderful, and letting myself feel safe,” she says.
