Oscar Winner Anne Hathaway, 32, Says She’s Already a Victim of Hollywood Ageism

Sep 4, 2015  •  Post A Comment

32-year-old actress Anne Hathaway, who has an Oscar, an Emmy and a Golden Globe in her resume, said in an interview with Glamour UK that she is already losing roles to younger actresses.

Hathaway has generally been thought of as one of those “younger actresses.” She claimed her first Oscar nomination almost seven years ago, for the 2008 feature “Rachel Getting Married,” before winning an Emmy in 2010 for her voiceover work on “The Simpsons.”

She has since won both an Oscar and a Golden Globe, for the 2012 movie “Les Miserables.”

Hathaway indicated in the Glamour interview that she gets the whole ageism thing. “I can’t complain about it because I benefited from it,” she said. “When I was in my early twenties, parts would be written for women in their fifties and I would get them.”

However, the actress lamented that the passage of time — even just a few years — has changed the playing field.

“Now I’m in my early thirties and I’m like, ‘Why did that 24-year-old get that part?,’” she says in the interview. “I was that 24-year-old once — I can’t be upset about it, it’s the way things are. All I can do right now is think that thankfully you have built up perhaps a little bit of cachet and can tell stories that interest you, and if people go to see them you’ll be allowed to make more.”

The interview appears as part of the cover story for the October issue of Glamour UK, which comes out Sept. 7.
