Anne Hathaway losing roles to younger stars...But why?
Has Anne Hathaway peaked?
Personally I'd say no. However some may disagree. Anne Hathaway has faced a lot of obstacles in Hollywood as of lately. She's starting to lose roles to younger stars and she's only 33-years-old. It may seem insane that a woman in her 30s is losing roles for a character who is in her 30s but it's very typical of casting directors. However, Hathaway understands the business noting, "I can't complain about it because I benefited from it".
Hathaway was once the biggest name in Hollywood starring in big hits such as Bride Wars, The Dark Knight Rises, and The Devil Wear's Prada. Currently, her new hit role in "The Intern" is a wonderful character and a new hopeful Hollywood success. Only time will tell. Though a sequel to the iconic blockbuster The Devil Wear's Prada is being rumored after the release of a second book, some are curious as to whether Hathaway will return to the silver screen. In 2013, Hathaway won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for the movie, Les Misérables. And even with that success, she still struggles today. And it doesn't help that for years Hathaway was labeled as one of the worst actresses to work with in the industry. However, it looks like things are finally finding a silver lining.
"I hate to admit it, but it's true—here are fewer roles and the competition is just as fierce as ever. I look around at my peers and I'm so blown away by their talent and their beauty and their cool style, as well as their ability to be an actress and be a movie star and be good at it. I mean, they're so good and we're all trying to get the same parts."
Even though she is fully supportive, she doesn't ignore the reality of the profession.
"When I was in my early 20s, parts would be written for women in their 50s and I would get them. And now I'm in my early 30s and I'm like, 'Why did that 24-year-old get that part?' I was that 24-year-old once, I can't be upset about it; it's the way things are. All I can do right now is think that thankfully you have built up perhaps a little bit of cachet and can tell stories that interest you and if people go to see them you'll be allowed to make more."
