An Academy Award winner, a Golden Globe winner, and a Primetime Emmy Award winner, Anne Hathaway turns 38 today. She has continued to win our hearts since her breakthrough in Disney’s The Princess Diaries and left us stunned with her performances. From playing the teenage to princess to The Grand High Priestess in The Witches, she’s proved herself to be one of the most versatile actors. On her birthday, here are 5 of her movies that are a must-watch.
The Devil Wears Prada (2006):
Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway, in the midst of the fashion world. What could be better? Anne Hathaway’s portrayal of a woman who at first struggles to fit into the fast-paced world of fashion but eventually fits right in only to realize that it’s not what she wants is inspiring along with being hilarious and relatable. The Devil Wears Prada said, “Everybody wants to be us”, and it was right, we do.
Les Miserables (2012):
Anne Hathaway’s character, Fantine, a struggling factory worker who has to resort to prostitution to make ends meet will break your heart and mend it again in more than one way. Playing the part beautifully, Anne Hathaway greatly enhanced the emotions Les Miserable brought out from all of us. She won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance.
The Princess Diaries (2001, 2004):
Anne Hathaway lived a lot of girls’ dreams when she became the princess of Genovia overnight. From being the awkward, invisible teenager to learning the ropes of elegance and grace from Dame Julie Andrews herself, The Princess Diaries was the perfect mix of comedy and drama. Anne Hathaway rocks, rules, and reigns in both parts of this teen comedy!
The Intern (2015):
Combining the experience and skill of Robert DeNiro along with the energy and talent of Anne Hathaway, The Intern was a heartwarming movie of a 70-year-old intern learning the new way of working and a young CEO seeing the importance of experience with knowledge.
Love & Other Drugs (2010):
Based on a true story, Love & Other Drugs is the tale of a womanizing salesman who falls in love with Maggie, a woman with early-onset Parkinson’s, for which there is no cure. From the fear of what a future with someone who has prolonged illness looks like to the realization that some people make you a better person, and sometimes the drug of love is ease to suffering, the movie tugs at your heartstrings.
We wish the beautiful and gifted actress a very happy birthday!
