I’d be Misérable if I didn’t have my man
ANNE HATHAWAY is one Hollywood leading lady who is happy to admit she needs a man in her life.
The new mum, who will next be seen in the female-led cast of Ocean’s Eight, said her actor hubby Adam Shulman, 35, ‘changed my ability to be in the world comfortably’.
The 34-year-old Oscar winner explained: ‘I think the accepted narrative now is that we, as women, don’t need anybody. But I need my husband. His unique and specific love has changed me.’
Hathaway, who gave birth to their son Jonathan last March, has had a rough time in the spotlight. Her ex-boyfriend, Italian Raffaello Follieri, was jailed for fraud and she has been targeted by online trolls called Hathahaters.
The Les Misérables star also said movie sets are still a man’s world. ‘Hollywood is not a place of equality. I don’t say that with anger or judgment; it’s a statistical fact,’ she told Elle magazine.
Hathaway said it has been a refreshing change to share a film set with the likes of Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock and Rihanna in the upcoming heist flick.
She continued: ‘Even though I’ve been in some female-centric films, I’ve never been in a film like this. It makes you aware of the ways you sort of unconsciously change yourself to fit certain scenarios.
‘There are certain things you understand about one another because of experiences you have in common. It’s probably easy for men to take that for granted. Just being on a set where I’m the one who possesses that ease is really something. It’s a nice alternative narrative.’
