Name: Anne Jacqueline Hathaway                                                           
Born: 12 November 1982 Brooklyn, New York, U.S.                                         
Other name: Anne Whitney Hathaway                                                       
Anne Jacqueline Hathaway (born November 12, 1982) is an American actress and             
singer. Hathaway made her acting debut in the 1999 television series Get Real,           
but her first prominent role was in Disney's family comedy The Princess Diaries         
(2001), which established her career. She continued to appear in family films           
over the next three years, and she had the lead roles in Ella Enchanted and The         
Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement (both 2004). Hathaway wanted to break the "G-rated" 
image, and consequently, in 2005 she co-starred in the adult-themed Havoc and           
Brokeback Mountain, both requiring extensive nude scenes, as well as The Devil           
Wears Prada (2006), in which she starred opposite Meryl Streep. That film has           
become the highest-grossing film of her career. Becoming Jane, in which she             
stars as Jane Austen, was released in 2007.                                             
Hathaway's acting style has been compared to that of Judy Garland and Audrey             
Hepburn, and she cites Hepburn as her favorite actress and Streep as her                 
idol. People magazine named her one of 2001's breakthrough stars and in                 
2006 she was listed as one of the world's 50 Most Beautiful People.
