Anne Hathaway enjoys doing her own stunts

09 April 2014, 07:45

Los Angeles -  Anne Hathaway likes doing her own stunts.

The 31-year-old star - who grew up in New Jersey with brothers Michael and Thomas - admits she was an active child who enjoyed to "climb trees and jump off things" and still has a "daredevil side" to her.
She told the UK's HELLO! magazine: "As a little girl I was a real tomboy. I grew up with two brothers and I loved to climb trees and jump off things that were way too high for me. I still have a daredevil side - I love doing my own stunts in movies, or anything physical that will give me a thrill, although my mother wishes I didn't."

The actress - who is married to Adam Shulman - won Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2013 for her part in Les Miserables and insists she finds it difficult to come to terms with her own success and couldn't believe she'd won such an honorary award.

Talking about last year's Academy Awards, Hathaway added: "That was a surreal evening. To be honest throughout that awards season I had a difficult time believing that I'd even done something worth respecting like that.

"The moment when the penny really dropped, that it was all happening, was after I'd been given the Oscar, had the pictures taken in the press room afterwards and then been shown back to my seat in the theater. I looked to either side, and there was my husband to my right and Hugh Jackman to my left, and I'm sitting there holding an Oscar between two men who love me very, very much, and out onto the stage walks Barbara Streisand, who I had met only the day before and we'd had a really cool conversation, and suddenly it was all too much - I burst into tears."
