Anne Hathaway is a great actress, whether you like her or not. But apparently she found it difficult to be taken seriously after she completed filming on the “Princess Diaries.” Who knew?!?
She revealed in a new interview that she feared being typecast after the 2001 movie and so she sought out a variety of movie roles. She said, “‘The Princess Diaries’ was so cool in so many ways, because it was a great first job – it was a big hit – but at the same time, it was a hard thing to be like, ‘Robert Rodriguez, I swear I can do one of your movies!’ It was hard to get into rooms to be taken seriously for roles that weren’t princesses, so I think partially that was why I’ve tried to have as big a range as I have.”
She also said that her success has been such a surprise to her. She added, “I’ve worked very hard for it, but I’m so surprised that it’s going as well as it is.”
