“A lot of people have told me, ‘You’re not this and so can’t play that,’ and I can’t tell you the amount of times I’ve been told I’m not sexy. I just go: ‘I’m a lot of things. Just because I don’t wear my sexiness overtly doesn’t mean that I can’t become that girl for a role.”…….“I don’t take anything for granted.You probably always have to remind people that you’re there, that you have something to offer, maybe something beyond what they could imagine for you.”……“I gave up my struggle with perfection a long time ago. That is a concept I don’t find very interesting anymore.”……..“There’s something very addictive about people pleasing. It’s a thought pattern and a habit that feels really, really good until it becomes desperate.” ……”Finding yourself takes as long as it takes, and I’m still in the process. It’s not as if I’m sitting in the lotus position ready to dole out advice. Some days are still like, Whoa, I just fell off this cliff again! But learning how to be kind to yourself while you’re discovering who you are is something I wish for everybody. Not having all the answers, not knowing what to do, and making mistakes — those aren’t reasons to beat yourself up.” ….. I want to work with people that frighten me and excite me, and characters that I don’t believe I’m the best person for the part but I’m still gonna try anyway. Those are my favorite roles.”……”Quite frankly, I didn’t become an actor to become a movie star. I have never dreamed about being the most famous person on the planet. I just want to do really good work.” Anne Hathaway
