Anne Hathaway Reveals Why She Quit Being Vegan While Out to Dinner with Matt Damon

Anne Hathaway is on the cover of Tatler‘s June 2019 issue!

Here’s what the 36-year-old actress had to share with the mag…

On quitting being a vegan while out to dinner with Matt Damon in Iceland: “We walk into a Michelin-star restaurant and because Matt is the nicest guy he says: ‘I’ll just have whatever the chef wants to serve me.’ And my husband – who had just completed a year of veganism – says, ‘Me too.’ I was like: ‘Sweetie, he’s having a reindeer carpaccio…’ So then I was the only chick and I’m the vegan and everyone’s just going with the flow. So I asked, ‘Is your fish local?’ And they said: ‘Do you see that fjord?’ So I had a piece of salmon and my brain felt like a computer rebooting.’”

On being an actress: “I was always told that once I turned 35 I would turn into a pumpkin and never get a good part again. It makes me sad that the world tells me my skin is somehow less valuable than it used to be, but I don’t listen and I don’t agree.”

On where she would be if she wasn’t an actress: “In the gutter? I could have seen myself being a teacher. Or going into the military. Or being some kind of do-gooder with a death wish. But more likely than anything else I would have been an alcoholic.”

    she is so annoying.

    Photoshop fail. Interview fail.

    Annoying as hell and if she is that weak to eat plant based, then please do not call yourself a vegan! She obviously is not an ethical vegan and didn’t seem to care that a fish needs to be slaughtered for her to consume! Loser.

  • DeadP001

    I like the bit about her age, no one should be discriminated against for the crime of not dying. Women should play super heroes for as long as they like, or sci fi roles or anything at all at any age as long as they wish and like and the industry should evolve beyond age discrimination.

  • Texas Chick

    On a scale from 0-10 on annoying she’s a 10+, this chick has irritated the living crap out of me ever since she’s started acting.

  • Zaza

    could not agree more !

  • Maria M.

    I don’t understand why people dislike her. She seems very down to earth and self-deprecating.

  • TheFullMueller

    Her conformity is absolutely pathetic

  • TheFullMueller

    she’s a regurgitating, leftist clown without an original thought in her empty little head

  • atlqueen112

    Lol I don’t get why people hate her so much. She is good at what she does obviously. Somebody thinks so out here. And I think she’s pretty. I really don’t care what the hell she stuffs in her pie hole to be honest. People need to get a grip….

  • wig

    She is so unlikeable. Geez! Watching her interviewed is terribly uncomfortable. She is always “on” and acting. She doesn’t feel genuine in any way. Weird girl.

    Fresh salmon? Hard to turn that down.
