Anne Hathaway Becomes Jane…and a Major Hollywood Player

Anne Hathaway as Jane Austen, 24-year-old actress, has come a long way since she gained notice in Disney’s two Princess Diaries flicks. Since then, Hathaway appeared in the critically-acclaimed Brokeback Mountain, and acted opposite Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada. Now, Hathaway is starring in Becoming Jane, the semi-fictional Jane Austen flick scheduled for release today…but is Anne Hathaway ready to become an A-list star?

There was a point during production when Hathaway seriously considered walking away from Becoming Jane, which is loosely based on the life of novelist Jane Austen. To the delight of moviegoers, Hathaway stuck with the project, though she did have to do a lot of research for the part. The actress had to learn to speak in an English accent and study the customs of the late 18th century just to play the role. Though Becoming Jane is certainly about a real person living in a real time, the movie itself is not based on actual events.
