Anne Hathaway thinks Amy Schumer is promoting an inspirational message to women worldwide.

The 32-year-old actress opened up about her inspirations in an interview with Refinery29 magazine.

And on the top of Anne’s list is 34-year-old Amy, whose career has gone from strength to strength over the past few months.

“I am crushing so hard on Amy Schumer,” Anne told the publication. “Women like her who have chosen to stand up for themselves and face the bullies are being so embraced. I think that’s the new message: Figure out who you are, be happy with yourself, and don’t take anything from anyone. Don’t let anyone make you feel bad about you. That’s something that I’ve been growing into.”

Anne has enjoyed a hugely successful acting career, from starring as the geeky schoolgirl turned royal in The Princess Diaries to singing prostitute Fantine in Les Misérables – a role that won her an Oscar.

But Anne also spoke about one of the most sensitive topics in Hollywood today, which is the difference between the treatment of women and men in the industry.

“When I was younger, I felt very much like, oh, I have to be a certain way, I have to look a certain way,” Anne added. “You really, really don’t. That’s the way women are treated differently than men. I mean, I’ve had actors argue with me about this. They say, ‘Oh, we all have to have six-packs.’ And I’m like, ‘Well, that might be true, but with women, it’s so many things. It’s not just about having a six-pack. I mean, we have to have a six-pack and be able to run in heels.’”
