Could anyone imagine The Princess Diaries without the presence of the beautiful actress Anne Hatahway? Well, that’s exactly what was about to happen if the now Hollywood star hadn’t changed her mind at age 15, after her older brother came out as gay.
Anne Hathaway is one of the most sought-after and best-paid actresses on the Hollywood scene , but what many do not know is that in her teens, and despite the fact that she was already attracted to acting, she was about to abandon everything to follow her religious impulses.
And yes, it is that Anne Hathaway , daughter of theater actress Kate McCauley and lawyer Geraldston Hathaway, was raised Catholic in New Jersey, and before she turned 15, she wanted to be a nun, something that if it had happened she would have completely cut short her career as an actress.
But why did he change his mind? Her change of heart regarding her Catholic faith came after her older brother, Michael, came out as gay, a sexual preference that at the time she professed the Vatican faith, was not approved by the Catholic Church. Holy See.
“I realized my older brother was gay, and I couldn’t support a religion that didn’t support my brother. Now I consider myself a nondenominational Christian because I haven’t found a religion for myself,” then in 2009, Hathaway said that she was still a Christian but without a specific religion and that her religious beliefs were “a work in progress”.
“The whole family converted to Episcopalianism after my older brother came out as gay,” he once told British GQ. “Why should I support an organization that has a limited view of my beloved brother?” However, Episcopalianism did not really accept Michael’s preferences either.
“So I’m…nothing,” he said. “Fuck it, I’m training. I’m a work in progress,” said the mother of two.
