The New York actress has played women who leave their mark on the big screen; outside of it, fight for gender equality
Anne Hathaway is one of the brightest and most versatile stars in Hollywood. In her 24-year career, she has shown her great abilities to play characters that leave their mark on the big screen.
Outside of her facet as an actress, the native of Brooklyn, New York has raised her voice for women’s rights, joining movements such as Time’s Up against sexual harassment and in the fight against machismo and wage inequality in Hollywood. .
For Hathaway, the circumstances of women have improved thanks to the enormous efforts of the generation to which her mother belongs, who fought so that her daughters had more freedom and could be what they wanted.
“This is a time when it seems like we are on tectonic plates, it is a time of change and we are still transforming, we still haven’t gotten it to work perfectly,” he recently declared.
in constant struggle
Humble, charismatic and determined, her fight for change dates back a long time; in 2013 she was an advocate for the Nike Foundation to raise awareness against child marriage.
The same year she narrated for CNN the documentary ‘Girl Rising’, focusing on the power of women’s education, which followed 7-year-old girls from around the world in their quest to overcome obstacles and fulfill their dreams.
In 2016, the actress was named a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador and has since dedicated her efforts to raising awareness on various issues related to inequality.
For the star, married since 2012 to actor Adam Schulman, with whom she has two children: Jonathan and Jack, it is important to set an example for them, since only then will there be a change in future generations.
“That’s what I’m doing right now: observing my behavior and seeing if I really am the type of person I encourage my children to be,” he said.
a brilliant career
Anne Hathaway’s name is engraved on one of the stars of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, located in front of the Chinese Theater in Los Angeles, next to that of Hattie McDaniel, the first black actress to receive an Oscar in 1940.
The actress from ‘The Devil Wears Fashion’ also shares this honor, as in 2013 she received the Academy Award for her magnificent performance in ‘Les Miserables’.
Among his most outstanding works are ‘The Princess Diaries’, ‘Batman: The Dark Knight Rises’, ‘Interstellar’, ‘Fashion Intern’, ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’, ‘Ocean’s 8’ and ‘ The witches’.
Her most recent film is ‘The Time of Armageddon’, set in the 80s, where she plays Esther, a mother of a young family with the eclipsed desire to enter the world of work.
This paper reflects the expectations that were held decades ago about what women were supposed to do, but without offering them help, which is still repeated today.
“I know it sounds very idealistic and it’s not going to happen today, but it’s important to be really pragmatic and not just mention things but think about how we’re going to change them.”
