Anne Hathaway maybe one of the most elegant and beautiful actresses in Hollywood, but she's still self-conscious about her image.

The Les Misérables actress has admitted she's obsessed with her weight and constantly questions whether she is thin enough.


Anne, who 'lived on hummus and radishes' to shed 25lbs she needed to play the role of Fantine, said she's ashamed of being so obsessed with her weight.

She said: “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.

The 30-year-old newlywed says the constant presence of the paparazzi doesn’t help.

“I just think about the ridicule you get if you have an off day,” Anne said, while noting that it’s ‘news’ if she simply walks her dog.

She told US Glamour: “If people weren’t watching, I’d be so much more eccentric. I know it makes me sound weak, but rather than make myself happy and wear the silly hat and say, ‘Oh, I don’t care.’

“I actually really don’t feel like getting made fun of,” she said. “So I put on something boring and navy and go out and try to disappear.”

On the front cover of the January self-expression issue of Glamour,The Dark Knight Rises actress looks anything but self-conscious. Styled in high-waist briefs and a white tank top, Anne appears playful in front of the camera.

The Dark Knight Rises actress also recalled how she was impacted by her broken engagement with her fiancé Raffaello Follieri, who was jailed for fraud in 2008.

She said: “I realised that the life I’d been living [was not authentic] and that I had to make a change. Then I found out that my trust had been betrayed quite massively. So for me, that call came at the end of 2007.”

Anne who used to be a marriage skeptic also reveals that her husband Adam Shulman changed her outlook on love.

She said married life is “wonderful.” And added: “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.”

“I would never have gotten married if it weren’t for him… Marriage for marriage’s sake doesn’t make any sense to me, and I found someone with whom I could put my money where my mouth is, I guess."

The US Glamour magazine is out on 11 December 2012.
