Anne Hathaway: 5 things you didn't know about the star

Anne Hathaway is one of the best actresses of her generation, capable of captivating a large audience of different ages, thanks to her great versatility, innate acting talent, and her immortal elegance. Between TV series, advertising campaigns, and movies, like "The idea of you" and "mothers' instinct", in recent months she has returned to the spotlight and continues to be among the most talked-about names in cinema.

Today, we're here to tell you some facts you maybe didn't know about the actress:

1. When she was a child, her main ambition was to become a nun. Before focusing on her passion for acting and her future stardom, she dreamed of growing up and committing her life to religion as a nun. Lucky for us she chose the camera instead of the cloth. 

2. Even today, after years of fame, she still feels gratitude for that role that was supposed to be a small film: "The Princess of Tribeca" (now Princess Diaries). She auditioned during a brief stop in L.A. while traveling to New Zealand to act in an independent film called "The Other Side of Heaven." As we all know, that was her lucky break and her career grew from there.

3. Another amusing anecdote is that on the day of the audition for Princess Diaries, due to agitation, she clumsily fell off a chair. Though after that episode, director Gary Marshall was probably even more impressed by Anne who thought her to be perfect for the role of Mia - cute but clumsy.

4. The actress has been dating actor Adam Shulman since 2008, and they got married in 2012. A curious rumor about the couple however, concerns the fact that Shulman bears a striking resemblance to the English playwright William Shakespeare, whose wife was named Anne Hathaway. Some believe that the two contemporary actors are their reincarnations, thus carrying on an eternal love.

5. Hathaway was inspired to pursue a career as an actress by her mother, also an actress and now a former theater artist. Proof that it was in her blood, the actress agreed to take on the role of Fantine in Les Misérables (the role that brought her the well deserved first Oscar of her career), following in her mother's footsteps who had played the same role.
