Anne Hathaway is good friends with Les Misérables (2012) co-star Hugh Jackman. In fact, he suggested Anne for the role of Fantine which later she won every major award for, and thanked him in her speeches.

In January 8, 2014, Anne almost drowned when she nearly swept out to sea while vacationing in Oahu, Hawaii. She got caught up in a riptide, and while her husband, Adam Shulman, was out of earshot on the beach, a fast-acting surfer came to her rescue. She began waving her arms and screaming as the waves engulfed her, catching the attention of the local man who ran down the beach to her aid with a boogie board.

Anne befriended Emily Blunt on the set of The Devil Wears Prada (2006). They are fast friends now, Emily calls Anne 'her rock'.


Anne Hathaway on life.

You cannot live your life to please others. The choice must be yours.

Best version of yourself.

Whatever you are made of, be the best of that.

On her living style.

I live my life with love. I live my life with compassion. I live my life hoping the best for absolutely everyone, no matter how they feel about me. And when you live that way, it's amazing how beautiful every day can be.

The bright side.

But you have to remember in life that there's a positive to every negative and a negative to every positive.
