Solidly established her career as a professional actress despite her young age, Anne Hathaway certainly has soared to be one of the most celebrated stars of her generation. Taking little concern about commercial success, she has put her whole heart into acting and perhaps it was the major factor that enabled her to maintain the accomplishment she has achieved. "I love learning about new parts of myself through characters, and getting lost in people and learning how to breathe differently because all of a sudden you're this different person," so she explained. With her remarkable talent and skills she has polished through a series of enactments in theatres, she surely has the potentiality to rise as a high-profile actress in Hollywood film industry.

The only daughter in the family, she was born with the name Anne Jacqueline Hathaway on November 12, 1982, in Brooklyn, New York to Gerard Hathaway who works as a lawyer, and Kate McCauley, a professional stage actress. Growing up in New Jersey alongside her two brothers, this dark-haired girl obviously inherited her mother's love for acting as she had been involved in some stage productions at such a young age. During her teens, she even became the first adolescent to be accepted in the prestigious Manhattan-based acting workshop, The Barrow Group, while also compiled a resume of theatrical experience through her performances in "Gigi", "Jane Eyre", "Life on Earth", and "Once Upon a Mattress" which were all held by Paper Mill Playhouse.
