The actress began her dream career in the film industry as a child artist and appeared in television shows like Get Real. She got the perk to work in Meryl Streep starrer 2006 commercially successful movie The Devil Wears Prada.

Anne Hathaway co-starred in Ang Lee’s directorial movie Brokeback Mountain in 2006 with Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger. The film received mixed reviews, and even Madonna found the film shocking. In a previous interview, the singer talked about the movie and said,

“I love it. Shocking. Surprising. The guy who financed my movie did that too. He’s a very mild-mannered chap from Minnesota, and we’d just screened the latest cut of my film, and he asked if I had wanted to see it. I was thinking ok, this really straight, square guy, and he showed me this movie. It’s amazing. They’re really good those boys, and they did a great job. It’s very brave of them.”

During a sit-down interview, Anne Hathaway responded to Madonna’s remark. The actress said,

“Madonna said it’s shocking? Did Madonna see the film? I didn’t get that memo! I want to know what the Material Mom sees.”

Hathaway continued,

“What I like about it is that it’s pretty evenly distributed across the film, with both men and women. Usually us girls bear the unfair share of it. I didn’t think it was very shocking. I thought it was very real and tastefully done.”

The actress also said that she thought some of the reactions to the film’s s*x scenes were overdone. The Ella Enchanted star explained,

“I think it’s really overhyped. I think the thing that emerges from the film is [they] have such love for each other that even as their sexual relationship slackens, their intimacy deepens.”

The titular movie stars Anne Hathaway, Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Michelle Williams. The film received mixed reviews but became a commercial hit, grossing over $178 million worldwide.
