THE PRINCESS DIARIES star Anne Hathaway insists she only lands top roles turned down by more accomplished actresses.
Hathaway claims film-makers work their way down a list of stars and her name is near the bottom.
She says, "I'm on the long short list. But I'm not on the short short list, which is Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson and Keira Knightley."
Although she's not usually the first choice, she insists she's thrilled to even be considered.
She adds, "I'm happy to be in the race with this level of people.
"I'm the person who gets the script three people after Natalie turns it down - that's awesome!"
