I believe I've always been a big believer in equality. No one has ever been able to tell me I couldn't do something because I was a girl. Anne Hathaway

A hero donated money to the poor; a hero saved the world by fighting with the evil. Must a hero be brave or strong? Actually heroes don't have to be very strong or very brave and my hero is not as strong as a man because she is a woman. She is Anne Hathaway.

Introduction: Hathaway was born in Brooklyn, New York. Her father, Gerald Thomas Hathaway, is a lawyer, and her mother is a former actress who inspired Hathaway to follow in her footsteps. Hathaway is the middle of three children with her older brother, Michael and younger brother, Thomas. When Hathaway was six years old, her family moved to Millburn, New Jersey. Her acting style has been compared to Judy Garland and Audrey Hepburn. Her idol is Meryl Streep. She was a Roman Catholic before but after she knew her brother was gay when she said "I couldn't support a religion that didn't support my brother."

Quotations: Anne is an LGBT rights activist and has donated money to organizations that support marriage equality.
