Anne Hathaway has become “more choosy” about work since having children.
The 39-year-old actress, who is mum to six-year-old Jonathan and two-year-old Jack with husband Adam Shulman, explained that any project she is asked to do has to be good enough for her to justify spend time outside of their children and worth it to their audience.
She said: “The issue of children has made me a bit more demanding because something has to be so great to spend time away from them because they are so precious to me and they are the most sacred part of my long life. So when I accept something it puts more pressure on me to make it worth the time I’ve spent away from them. I’ve always felt a responsibility – with mixed results – for the audience that will see the project that I’m going to work on it , I take it very seriously. Your time is your life and your life is your time. And the idea that I’m asking you for your time and your money to watch me do this thing that I love to do , it has to be worth it, it really is.
The Oscar-winning star – who has played roles in films including the Disney comedy ‘The Princess Diaries’ and took on the role of tragic prostitute Fantine in the musical drama ‘Les Miserables’ – added that she wants to be the “best actor” she did. it can be with your choice of papers.
Speaking on ‘The Jess Cagle Podcast with Julia Cunningham’, he added: “So there’s that side and I also want to be the best actor I can be. I don’t think I’ll ever stop learning and that means I want to work on as many different roles as I can and for me the most crucial part of this approach is that I have to do it with the best directors who have me. I have to, it’s the only way to learn. .”
