Born on November 12, 1982 in New York City, in the Brooklyn neighborhood Anne Hathaway quickly follows in the footsteps of her mother, actress Kate McCayley. She began by studying theater at the Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey and participated in several plays such as Gigi, Jane Eyre, Life on Earth and Once Upon a Mattress.

At the age of 17, she made her first appearance on the small screen in the series The Green Family, which was much watched and appreciated by American audiences. Her performance earned her a nomination for the 2000 Teen Choice Awards as Best Actress in a Series. But it is really Disney’s productions, Princess in spite of herself, and then her sequel, A Princess’ Wedding, in which the young woman plays a teenage girl of confounding naivety who discovers she is the heir to a kingdom, that reveal her to the general public. She is also a dancer, trained at the Broadway Dance Center in New York and a soprano, qualities that she uses in her films: she lends her voice to cartoon characters such as The Kingdom of the Cats (2002) and The True Story of Little Red Riding Hood (2005).

In 2005, Ang Lee did not hesitate to emancipate her from her label as a Disney heroine, and included her in the cast of her film, The Secret of Brokeback Mountain, her first profound role. The following year, she made a name for herself around the world when she became assistant to a tyrannical editor-in-chief played by Meryl Streep in the hit dramatic comedy The Devil Wears Prada. Anne Hathaway then moves on to more complex roles, proving she has more than one string to her bow, becoming Jane (Austen) in the eponymous film (2007), and then a former drug addict who returns to her family on the occasion of her sister’s wedding in Rachel Gets Married (2008). Her brilliant performance earned her a 2009 Oscar nomination.

Then the actress quickly returns to lighter films with Max the Threat (2008) with Steve Carell. 2010 is a busy year for the rising actress who can be found in Best Enemies, alongside Kate Hudson, as well as in the romantic comedy Valentine’s Day (2010), the penultimate Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland and the comedy Love, and Other Drugs. In 2012, she is chosen by Christopher Nolan to play Catwoman in the third opus of the Batman saga, The Dark Knight Rises. She appears in April 2012 with a shaved head, surprisingly thin for her role in Les Misérables.

On the private side, the actress has been dating an Italian entrepreneur, Raffaello Follieri, for three years. The actress left him in June 2008, shortly before he was arrested and incarcerated for fraud and money laundering (and expelled from the United States in May 2012). The actress has since fallen in love again with actor and jewelry designer Adam Schulman. The couple got married in September 2012. On March 24, 2016, she gave birth to a little boy named Jonathan. On July 24, 2019, she announces on social networks that she is expecting her second child. In December 2019, she is photographed with her husband in a Connecticut park, with an infant in a baby carrier.
