Anne Hathaway reflects on how she was told she would only be successful until she reached a certain age.
“When I started (in this industry) as a child, I was warned that my career would go off a cliff at the age of 35, something I know many women face,” Hathaway told the publication. “What has evolved in that time is that more women have careers deeper in their lives, which I think is fantastic.”
However, she acknowledged that progress still needs to be made.
“It obviously doesn’t mean we have to have a ticker-tape parade – someone said to me the other day, ‘There’s so much to be proud of, and there’s so much to solve,’” she added.

“It’s such a nice feeling to know that you’re kind of woven into someone’s life,” she said. “I can’t describe the honor of knowing that I am involved in the moments when people need comfort. It makes me very excited that my journey as a performer has connected with people. I love (when) projects have a life beyond their first release.”

This year the actress has two films that will be released in theaters almost back to back.

In January, at the world premiere of Oldroyd’s psychological thriller, the actress recalled that one of the first questions she was ever asked when she started acting was, “Are you a good girl or a bad girl?”
“I was 16 and my 16-year-old self wanted to respond with this movie,” she said Eileen. “Although I didn’t know that when I read the script, I think part of me was hoping for this exact moment.”
