In honor of her upcoming 34th birthday, here’s a look at 10 things you probably didn’t know about this stunning actress!
10. Acting is in her Blood
Similar to many other incredibly talented actors in Hollywood, Hathaway got her acting chops from her mother, a former stage actress! She was the one who inspired Hathaway to become an actress. In fact, Anne Hathaway’s Oscar-winning role as Fantine in Les Miserables was once played by her own mother, Kate McCauley, who took on the role during the first U.S. tour of Les Miserables. Hathaway told The Hollywood Reporter that she sought out advice from her mother a lot when preparing for the role: “We just talked about the character. She told me a lot about her experience playing Fantine, which gave me even more confidence that it was in my blood, in my DNA, it was a family legacy. I think it allowed me to connect on a deeper level to the character, knowing how much it meant to her.”
9. Caught in a Riptide
Back in January 2014 it was reported that Anne Hathaway almost drowned while on vacation in Oahu, Hawaii with her husband, Adam Shulman. She was swimming in the ocean when she unexpectedly got caught in a riptide. She said she wasn’t drowning, buts she was stuck in a riptide and couldn’t get back to shore. “I got caught in a rip and I couldn’t get out. And I had been swimming for like 10 minutes. I wasn’t being pulled out out, I just couldn’t get in. It would have been really scary if I had been pulled out, but I was just kinda stuck about 400-500 yards out. I had been swimming and swimming and I’m like ‘OK. I’m just going to float for a second and hopefully rest’ and then, ‘OK, this isn’t working.’” At the time of the incident, Shulman was laying on the beach and he thought she was in trouble, so he ran out to save her which is why photographers thought she was in trouble. There are several photographs from the incident where Hathaway looks distressed, but she assures people she is a strong swimmer and was perfectly fine.
