Hathaway: Women are pressured to be wild

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway thinks women are often defined by "how wild they are".

The actress feels society pressurises females into being promiscuous and drinking too much alcohol.

The 30-year-old confessed that although she has never fallen foul to this herself, she understands the struggles women go through to be seen in a certain way.

"We get pressure to define ourselves as women by how wild we are: How many guys did you sleep with? How drunk did you get?" Anne explained to the US edition of Glamour magazine.

"[My fondest memories of being a young woman are] when I think back to the most fun nights in my life, when it was just me out dancing."

Anne tied the knot with Adam Shulman earlier this year. The brunette beauty explained how fun the wedding was although she normally shies away from such public displays, choosing to save her really dramatic side for the screen.

"I'd be much more eccentric if I knew people weren't watching," she said.

Anne's latest role as Fantine in the highly-anticipated movie adaptation Les Misérables brought out her fighting side. There is nothing more satisfying to the actress than working hard to get a part she really desires and then scooping the role.

"I like to fight for a job," Anne asserted. "You feel like you've emerged from the scrap, and you're like, 'OK, this one's mine. Did it. Done.'"
