Anne Hathaway opened up about the harrowing loss in a new interview with Vanity Fair

Anne Hathaway has been one of my favourite actresses since I was a kid. She stole our hearts in The Princess Diaries, we rooted for her in The Devil Wears Prada and were blown away when she played Emma Morley in One Day.

She is the ultimate Hollywood star, but it’s her honesty that I adore most.

The actress has always been incredibly honest about both her professional and personal life and I think that’s one of the main reasons she’s so adored.

It’s not just the stellar filmography, but who she is as a person.

Hathaway recently opened up about how she continued working after suffering a harrowing miscarriage.

Hathaway was starring in a six-week off-Broadway production of Grounded when she suffered the loss.

She told the publication she was completely heartbroken by the 2015 heartache.

Hathaway explained that the play caused further distress for her because her character gave birth in the show.

“It was too much to keep it”

“The first time it didn’t work out for me. I was doing a play and I had to give birth onstage every night.”

“It was too much to keep it in when I was onstage pretending everything was fine.”

“It’s really hard to want something so much and to wonder if you’re doing something wrong,” Hathaway shared.

Hathaway said she felt isolated following her loss even though so many of her friends had gone through similar experiences.

“I thought, Where is this information? Why are we feeling so unnecessarily isolated? That’s where we take on damage.

“So I decided that I was going to talk about it. The thing that broke my heart, blew my mind, and gave me hope was that for three years after, almost daily, a woman came up to me in tears and I would just hold her, because she was carrying this [pain] around and suddenly it wasn’t all hers anymore.”

Hathaway’s honesty is bound to help so many women suffering a similar loss feel less lonely in their heartache.
