Anne Hathaway on ageing
She told People, “Ageing is just another word for living. And what you do with it from there is personal and up to you. I feel great — I feel better than I did in my twenties because I'm taking much better care of myself... In my 30s, I had to give up alcohol. I couldn't do it anymore. I couldn't lead the life that I wanted while drinking. And in my 40s I'm finding I have to support myself differently nutritionally. I want to go back and talk to my 25-year-old self who felt like she didn't have to do anything and just be like, ‘Oh honey, honey, there's a whole other world out there and it tastes like an avocado'.”
On postpartum snapback
Anne Hathaway also asked women to 'let their bodies be' after a pregnancy, instead of getting back in shape quickly. The actor is mom to sons Jonathan, 7 and Jack, 3, with husband Adam Shulman. She said, “People don't talk about this and it really made me feel better when I found out about it. It takes three years for your body to fully recover from a pregnancy. I didn't snap back. I want to be very, very clear about that. With my second, it took every minute of those three years. Let your body be a body. There's nowhere to get to. It's just now. Be present and take care of yourself and don't set expectations.”
Reactions to Anne's statement about

Whatever beauty 'secrets' these celebrities claim to use like coconut oil is such insane hypocrisy." A second commented, "Actresses always say that until they start to really age. It starts to really kick in, in your 50s. So Anne, take a seat." A third person commented, "No one cares about age except for these people."
One more wrote, "People, who aren’t obsessed with beauty, don’t have beauty secrets and don’t lie about their age." A person also commented, "Hysterical coming from someone that had so many facial cosmetic surgeries to stay young."
