Executive summary: The Princess Diaries

Anne Hathaway wanted to be a stage actress like her mother, and grew up playing children's roles at a respected New Jersey theater, the Paper Mill Playhouse. In 1999, she played a high school girl in the short-lived Fox TV drama Get Real. A year after that show was cancelled, Hathaway was picked to star opposite Julie Andrews in a Disney film, The Princess Diaries. She then starred in an adaptation of Charles Dickens' Nicholas Nickleby, Ella Enchanted (another fluffy fairy tale), and a sequel to The Princess Diaries. By this time she was in danger of repeating Andrews' career mistake of becoming a "family film" brand name, so Hathaway made the decidedly more adult Havoc and Brokeback Mountain.


[1] Told GQ magazine in 2010: "The whole family converted to Episcopalianism after my elder brother came out. Why should I support an organization that has a limited view of my beloved brother?" However, Episcopalianism apparently did not agree with her either: "So I'm... nothing. Fuck it, I'm forming. I'm a work in progress."
