There are so many reasons to be in love with Anne Hathaway, who co-stars alongside Christian Bale in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.  While this film is the end of the epic trilogy, fans, both male and female alike, have become entranced in Anne Hathaway and her portrayal of Selina Kyle (otherwise known to us as the “cat” burglar).  Well, just as an aside, I’ve been head-over-heels in girl crush with this actress since her days as Mia Thermopolis in Disney’s The Princess Diaries.  Also, for some reason, my friends and family have been convinced that I look like her (one can only hope).  I think it’s time that we get to know this brunette-beauty a little more.

Born Anne Jacqueline Hathaway, this brunette bombshell has made her way from her early days in the theatre to becoming one of America’s most famous actresses.  Hathaway is a Brooklyn, NY native and a trained stage actress with the spirit and audacity of a modern-day Audrey Hepburn.  From her days singing in Carnegie Hall to performing on the theatre stage, Hathaway was cast in a television series, Get Real, for her first acting role.

Her acting career then transitioned into more serious film roles, from playing a princess in The Princess Diaries, a sex-fiend in both Valentine’s Day and Love, Sex & Drugs, to the infamous Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises.  She’s been nominated for several Academy Awards and won an Emmy Award in 2010 for her voice-over role in Fox’s The Simpsons.

Anne Hathaway is engaged to actor Adam Schulman.  The two have been together since late-2008.  Hathaway’s next role is in Tom Hooper’s adaptation of Les Misérables, which is set to release later this year.

So, if you haven’t done it yet, hit up Netflix and rent some of Anne Hathaway’s movies.  Add them to your queue and you won’t regret it!  Her acting is as flawless, as her beauty.
