• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Tall, dark-haired, with an on-screen persona mixing naivete with determination, Hathaway is an eclectic actor with a nonetheless wholesome reputation that has proven difficult to shake. She is best known for her breakout role in 2001's The Princess Diaries, as an awkward teen who suddenly discovers she is royalty, and later in Ella Enchanted.

After a string of wildly successful (family-friendly) film credits, Hathaway made a conscious decision to shift toward darker roles. Her starring role in Rachel Getting Married is best emblematic of that phase, though those of the male persuasion would probably cite her...(ahem) 'raw' performance in Havoc, for which she earned critical acclaim. However, it was 2005's Brokeback Mountain which officially put Hathaway on the map, and buried her squeaky-clean resumé for good. That following year, she got to act alongside her idol, Meryl Streep, in The Devil Wears Prada.

Despite her relative youth, Hathaway has been very busy indeed. At the start of 2011, it was announced that she's been cast as Selina Kyle — better known as Catwoman — in Christopher Nolan's upcoming third Batman film The Dark Knight Rises.

Not to be confused with the wife of William Shakespeare.
