One of the most beautiful and charming women, Anne Hathaway is starring for the cover of Glamour’s January 2013 issue. Talking to the founder of the magazine, Eve Ensler, the Dark Knight Rises actress opens up about her husband, married life, body transformation, haters and why she wants you to just dance.
Newly married and hearing Oscar murmurs for her latest movie “Les Misérables” she took on a complete physical transformation to play Fantine.
But even after shedding 25lbs for the role, and despite being one of Hollywood’s most in-demand actresses, Anne Hathaway admits she still has hang-ups about her weight.
In the magazine she admits that she still feels out of place in the spotlight and has trouble projecting the image of a confident star.
‘I still feel the stress over “Am I thin enough? Am I too thin? Is my body the right shape?”‘ she confesses of her insecurities.
‘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,’ she explains.
Hathaway says the same goes for her fashion decisions– whether she’s going to the supermarket or heading to the Oscars.
“I just think about the ridicule you get if you have an off day,” she acknowledges.
“If people weren’t watching, I’d be so much more eccentric. I know it makes me sound weak, but rather than make myself happy and wear the silly hat and say, ‘Oh, I don’t care.’ I actually really don’t feel like getting made fun of,” the actress adds, “So I put on something boring and navy and go out and try to disappear.”
However, the 30-year-old star is exuberant in an editorial for the women’s lifestyle glossy.

Hathaway, who wed actor Adam Shulman in September, also recalled how she was impacted by her 2008 split from ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri, the Daily Mail reports.
The Italian businessman, shortly after their break-up, pleaded guilty to wire fraud, money laundering and conspiracy, and was sentenced to four-and-a-half-years in prison. She told the magazine that her “trust had been betrayed quite massively”.
Nevertheless, she seems to have everything she wants at the moment with Shulman as her official husband.
“I feel like I’ve found my other half, and I’m so excited about getting to love him for the rest of our lives,” Hathaway gushes to Glamour.
“I would never have gotten married if it weren’t for him. You have to want to be married to someone. You have to feel that reciprocated. Marriage for marriage’s sake doesn’t make any sense to me, and I found someone with whom I could put my money where my mouth is, I guess.”
Anne Hathaway is also preparing for her next role as a face of One Billion Rising, the global movement o end violence against women.
Anne commented on the supporting One Billion Rising: ”It’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that a billion women have been raped or beaten, just the enormity of that.”
She continued: “When I was in college, I’d heard that one in four women would be raped, and I thought, God, that means I must know someone who was raped. Sure enough, I found out a week later that a friend had been. A billion is too big because one is too big.”
Glamour’s January 2013 issue will be on newsstands nationwide on December 11.
