Anne Hathaway

Anne: My goal is to be unequivocally good in something.
Anne: I've always had an admiration for Jean Gray in X-Men. So, yeah, I'd love to be able to levitate things, read people's minds, and stuff like that.
Anne: Quite frankly I didn't become an actor to become a movie star. I have never dreamed about being the most famous person on the planet. I just want to do really good work.
Anne: I love my job. In some ways I've accomplished as much as I ever meant to in my career. I get to work with exciting, interesting people and talk about art and try to find truth.
Anne: I didn't want to be responsible for ruining Jane Austen. And then I realized if I saw anyone else play her, it would devastate me.
Anne: I don't believe in all that malarkey that it is the life you have chosen and therefore you have to put up with all that [celebrity] stuff. When I grew up, I always wanted to be an actress, not a celebrity.…But the fact is, no matter what I do, there will be a time when I will be forgotten.…And it will probably be within my lifetime. Hopefully, by protecting my privacy, I will be able to have a separate private life that will be rich and fulfilling.
Anne: I look my best after an entire hair and makeup team has spent hours perfecting me. When do I feel my best? When I haven't looked in a mirror for days, and I'm doing things that make me happy."
Anne: Over the last few years I've learned that the Next Big Thing is something a lot of people wish and want for you - but what you wish for yourself is really important too.
Anne: Films are letting me get older, which is really nice, because there was always this fear of what happens when I stop being a teenager. But for everyone else, it was kind of a sharp left.
Anne: One of my prerequisites for doing a movie is that it has to be on the opposite side of the coin from the last thing I did.
