Anne Hathaway Worries About Her Body: 'Ongoing Source of Shame'
The lovely Anne Hathaway graces the January cover of Glamour Self-Expression issue, talking about body image, married life and her charity One Billion Rising, a global movement to end violence against women.
Speaking with One Billion Rising Founder Eve Ensler, Hathaway explained, “It's hard to wrap my head around the fact that a billion women have been raped or beaten, just the enormity of that. When I was in college, I'd heard that one in four women would be raped, and I thought, God, that means I must know someone who was raped. Sure enough, I found out a week later that a friend had been. A billion is too big because one is too big.”
On her body issues, Hathaway admitted, “There's no magic bullet; there's no pill that you take that makes everything great and makes you happy all the time. I'm letting go of those expectations, and that's opening me up to moments of transcendent bliss. But I still feel the stress over 'Am I thin enough? Am I too thin? Is my body the right shape?'... There's an obsessive quality to it that I thought I would've grown out of by now. It's an ongoing source of shame for me.”
At least Anne takes comfort in being married to the right man, Adam Shulman. “It's wonderful. I feel like I've found my other half, and I'm so excited about getting to love him for the rest of our lives.”
