Biography

Anne Hathaway (born 12.11.1982) Anne Hathaway is an American actress, famous for her roles in The Princess Diaries and The Devil Wears Prada.

Childhood: Anne Hathaway was born in Brooklyn, New York. Her parents are Gerald Hathaway and Kate McCauley. Her father was a lawyer and her mother was an actress (Anne was inspired to follow in her mother's footsteps). When Anne was six years old, the family moved to Milburn, New Jersey.

Hathaway attended Brooklyn Heights Montessori School, Wyoming Elementary School and Millburn High School. Whilst at high school, she acted in a number of school plays. She won a nomination for the Paper Mill Playhouse Rising Star Award for 'Best Performance By A High School Actress' for her performance as Winifred in Once Upon a Mattress. Anne Hathaway also became the first teenager to be admitted to he Barrow Group Theater Company's acting programme. At the age of 16, she was cast in Get Real, for the Fox network.

Acting Career: Anne Hathaway's debut movie role came with her performance in the 2001 film The Other Side of Heaven. The film, which also starred Christopher Gorham, was filmed in New Zealand. Before filming commenced, Hathaway auditioned for a part in The Princess Diaries. She landed the lead role after just one audition and the film - which also starred Julie Andrews, Hector Elizondo and Mandy Moore - was an international success.

The following year, Anne Hathaway was in a production of Carnival! in New York, as well as providing her voice for an English version of The Cat Returns, by Hiroyuki Morita.

Hathaway then continued to star in a number of family-oriented films, such as Nicholas Nickleby (with Jamie Bell and Charlie Hunnam) and Ella Enchanted, along with Steve Coogan, Minnie Driver and Hugh Dancy.

In 2004, Anne Hathaway began filming the sequel to The Princess Diaries, entitled The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement. The scheduling of the film forced her to pull out of a prior commitment to star opposite Gerard Butler in The Phantom of the Opera.

In 2005's Hoodwinked!, Anne Hathaway voiced the character of Little Red Riding Hood. In a move that surprised many of her followers, Hathaway then chose to appear in Havoc. The film, which also stars Bijou Phillips and Freddy Rodriguez, was R-rated and featured Hathaway in a number of nude scenes and performing sex scenes.

This was followed by an appearance in the critically-lauded Brokeback Mountain, opposite Jake Gyllenhaal, Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams. Hathaway continued this success with a performance in The Devil Wears Prada. She stars in the film as a fashion magazine editor's assistant, with the editor's role being played by Meryl Streep. She and her co-star Emily Blunt followed the same strict diet for the film, in order to lose weight for the role.

Anne Hathaway was originally due to star in one of the lead roles of Knocked Up, by Judd Apatow. She was eventually replaced by Katherine Heigl, because she did not want to use real footage of a woman giving birth, to create the illusion that her character was giving birth. Instead, 2007 became the year that she starred in Becoming Jane: a film in which she portrayed the English author, Jane Austen. The film also starred James McAvoy, Maggie Smith and Julie Walters. Hathaway was originally considered for Tim Burton's production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. The role eventually went to Jayne Wisener, as Burton wanted a younger, unknown actress for the part.

Anne Hatchway started 2008 with a performance in Get Smart, an updated adaptation of the Mel Brooks TV series of the 1960s. The film also starred Steve Carrell, Alan Arkin and Dwayne Johnson. 2008 also saw Hatchway appear in Passengers, with Patrick Wilson and Rachel Getting Married, with Debra Winger. The following year, she starred in Bride Wars, opposite Kate Hudson, as well as providing voice work for The Simpsons and Family Guy. That summer, she performed in a stage production of Twelfth Night at the Delacorte Theater in New York. Toward the end of 2009, footage was released of the Tim Burton-produced version of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, starring Hathaway, alongside Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter

Personal Life: Anne Hathaway once dated the real estate developer Raffaello Follieri. Hatchway ended her relationship with him amid him being arrested for fraud charges. Since 2008, she has been dating the actor Adam Shulman.

Hathaway and Shulman married in a secret wedding ceremony in 2012.

Alice Through The Looking Glass Review

Excellent

This much more light-hearted sequel reinvigorates the franchise after Disney's quirky but murky 2010 reboot of Lewis Carroll's classic, which sent the heroine into Underland (not Wonderland) for a dark adventure that spiralled into a Lord of the Rings-scale battle. Thankfully this time the odyssey remains personal, centred on lively characters rather than overwrought plotting. And Alice's time-travelling quest is both pointed and engaging.

After captaining her late father's ship on a global journey, Alice (Mia Wasikowska) returns to 1875 London to bad news: her mother (Lindsay Duncan) has made decisions that take her future out of her hands. As she struggles to respond, she is summoned back to Underland to help her friend Hatter (Johnny Depp), who is emotionally devastated by the fact that his entire family has been killed. So Alice decides to help by confronting Time (Sacha Baron Cohen) and stealing a device that will allow her to travel back to help the younger Hatter. But she also becomes entangled in the early life of the White and Red Queens (Helena Bonham Carter and Anne Hathaway), and the feud that grew between them as young sisters. Meanwhile, Time is terrified that Alice is unravelling the fabric of reality.

The emotional nature of Alice's mission adds a surprising layer of suspense to the entire film, while director James Bobin (The Muppets) adds a breezy comical tone to Tim Burton's stunningly visual designs. Some of the more wacky flourishes don't quite work (such as the "sea of time" imagery or Time's hand-powered vehicle), but the film more than makes up for these with wonderful character details. This lets the actors relax into their roles while cranking up the surreal touches. Wasikowska is great as the plucky heroine fighting for her right to control her own life, a strong point that's made without preaching.
