Anne Hathaway: Pregnancy improved my acting
Anne Hathaway thinks her pregnancy "added a layer" to her acting career.
The 34-year-old actress gave birth to her son Jonathan – whom she has with her husband Adam Shulman – 12 months ago, and has admitted being pregnant whilst filming her upcoming movie ‘Colossal’ may have improved her performance as lead character Gloria.
Speaking about how her pregnancy affected her role, Anne said: "I think that my pregnancy may have added a layer to my performance in this one because I was so happy all the time and I just felt this great joy and I love the idea that was who Gloria was. She wasn’t depressed. She wasn’t put upon. She actually was a party girl and she always brought the fun and I think my baby did that too."
One area that did change, however, was Anne’s ability to perform stunts as each scene had to be broken down slowly so as to make sure her baby wasn’t coming to any harm.
She added to E! News: "I’m usually a very gung-ho physical performer. I’m always so happy to just throw myself in there and if you get hit or bruised or anything, I never really care about that but with this one, it wasn’t just me I was reaching out for so we broke the fight down very slowly. We did it piece by piece and I just tried my best not to fall."
Meanwhile, the ‘Love and Other Drugs’ actress recently admitted she has become a changed woman since marrying Adam in 2012.
She said: "He changed my ability to be in the world comfortably. I think the accepted narrative now is that we, as women, don’t need anybody. But I need my husband. His unique and specific love has changed me."
