ANNE HATHAWAY’S TOP 10 MOVIES
“Ocean’s 8” (2018): A knowingly humorous Hathaway is terrific as an actress who becomes the pawn of an all-female robbery gang targeting the necklace she wears to the Met Gala.
“Les Miserables” (2012): Hathaway was a shoo-in for the Oscar she ultimately won for singing her way through the role of the tragic Fantine in the screen version of the stage hit. “The Dark Knight Rises” (2012): It’s not easy to redefine a role as iconic as Catwoman, but Hathaway did it by playing smart – and smartly feline – for director Christopher Nolan. “Love and Other Drugs” (2010): By not playing her full hand too early, Hathaway left room for big and moving surprises in her character. “Rachel Getting Married” (2008): Hathaway took her career to a new level by playing the thorn in her family’s side at her sister’s wedding.
“Get Smart” (2008): If Barbara Feldon was to get an ideal successor as Agent 99, it’s Hathaway. “The Devil Wears Prada” (2006): Hathaway hit the bull’s-eye as a recent college grad who proves a big challenge to an imperious fashion magazine editor (a typically great Meryl Streep). “Brokeback Mountain” (2005): Hathaway shattered many preconceptions with her decidedly adult role as the woman – literally THE woman – in the life of Jake Gyllenhaal’s cowboy character.
“Ella Enchanted” (2004): Between her gigs as a princess, Hathaway put fun spins on fairy tales as the literally spellbound heroine of this fantasy. “The Princess Diaries” (2001): After cutting her teeth on television work, Hathaway made a big leap into the movies with the perfectly tailored role of an ordinary teen who learns she’s a European princess.
