Anne Hathaway revealed she struggled with anxiety and insecurity early on in her career.

Anne Hathaway is settling into herself and fame. However, in a recent interview, the star explained that it was a long road of battling anxiety and insecurity that led her to where she is now.

The 36-year-old “Serenity” star sat down for an interview for a cover story in People where she opened up about her anxiety and insecurity issues at the start of her career. “I did everything so wrong for so long,” she said.

“I’m not big on looking back,” she continued. “But I remember 10 years ago being so scared going into the whole awards season and doing what I thought I was supposed to do, so I barely ate anything at Christmas…I thought movie stars had to have a certain body. I was just smoking, just smoking my nerves away and wasn’t nourishing myself.”

The star recently posted an image on her Instagram that echoed these sentiments. The star posted a side-by-side photo of herself at the Golden Globes for the 10-Year challenge. “Wow. Check out 2009 me trying so hard not to do anything wrong. Check out 2019 me doing what feels right,” she wrote at the time.

She tells People that she finally learned self-care, which has helped her grow into herself and feel more comfortable with her career and fame.

I just figured out how to say thank you to life by taking care of myself,” she says. “By not apologizing for taking up space, which is not something I knew how to do 10 years ago.”

As for her critics, the star believes and even appreciates when negativity has “intelligence behind it.” However, her real gripe comes when negativity is lazy.

“If you’re going to take someone down, have a point of view! Be witty, maybe pun a little!”

  8. Hello! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking
    at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could
    point me in the direction of a good platform.

  12. Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work
    due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

  13. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But think of if you added some great pictures
    or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with
    pics and clips, this site could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
    Good blog!

  14. Can I simply say what a relief to find an individual who truly understands what they are talking about on the web.
    You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make it
    important. A lot more people must read this and understand this side of your story.
    I was surprised you’re not more popular since you definitely have the gift.

  15. Everything published was very reasonable. But,
    what about this? what if you composed a catchier post title?
    I ain’t saying your content is not good., but suppose you added a post title that makes
    people want more? I mean Anne Hathaway Talks "Battling Anxiety And Insecurity"
    Early In Her Career | Healthtider is kinda vanilla.
    You could look at Yahoo’s front page and note how
    they write article titles to grab people interested.
    You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab
    people interested about everything’ve got to
    say. Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a
    little bit more interesting.
