Anne Hathaway Harper's Bazaar February 2013

Anne Hathaway graces the cover of the February 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, which was shot by David Slijper, wearing a crystal-embellished Giorgio Armani strapless gown with DeBeers earrings and a Chanel white-gold and pearl bracelet.

Slijper also captures the ‘Les Mis’ beauty wearing an array of stunning pieces by Valentino (of course), Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton and Alexander McQueen.

In the mag, Anne discusses finding blissful love after having her heart broken, her battle with her perceived image, prepping for ‘Les Mis’ and what it’s like to turn 30.

The full interview appears in the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, which is on sale now.

Check out the extracts below.

On her marriage: “He walks into a room, and I light up. I can’t help it. A few days into it [filming 'Les Misérables'] I said ‘I’m having too much fun. I just want to play with you and I need to be really sad right now.’ I knew from the second I met him that he was the love of my life.”

On her sex appeal: “I’m not Rihanna. I’m not cool. When people come to me in the street, they often want a hug not a photo, and they want that because they like my work. For a long time it was me and her [her manager] against the world. I was seen as this bizarre-world good-girl cartoon that I in no way identified with – very vanilla, very sweet, very accessible and not interesting. I had no grit, no sex appeal.”

On turning 30 years old: “It doesn’t help that the new crop of girls is so gorgeous and so 22 years old. But I’m excited about it.”
