Quotable

“I had [a] moment after I finished making ‘Rachel Getting Married.’ I realized that the life I’d been living [was not authentic] and that I had to make a change. Then I found out that my trust had been betrayed quite massively. So for me, that call came at the end of 2007. Who was I going to be? There’s no magic bullet; there’s no pill that you take that makes everything great and makes you happy all the time. I’m letting go of those expectations, and that’s opening me up to moments of transcendent bliss. But I still feel the stress over ‘Am I thin enough? Am I too thin? Is my body the right shape?’ There’s an obsessive quality to it that I thought I would’ve grown out of by now. It’s an ongoing source of shame for me.”

 Anne Hathaway talks to Eve Ensler in the January issue of Glamour. Her honesty and self-awareness is just jumping off the page in this interview. I highly recommend reading the extended excerpt where she goes into more detail about the work she’s doing with One Billion Rising. It’s really inspiring. I picked this particular quote though, because I love how she talks about choosing to be a a better person when she was at a low moment in her life. I think we’ve all had moments like that, where we could choose to let them kick our ass, or we can allow them to help us evolve. Also, it’s rare that you hear a Hollywood leading lady admit to obsessing over her weight. Usually, they talk about how much they love to eat. I think Anne was brave to be so honest. I’m looking forward to seeing her in “Les Misérables” and perhaps with an Oscar nom coming her way. [Glamour]
