Anne Hathaway : Star says she's losing roles to 24-year-olds

Anne Hathaway is taking it all off! The Oscar winner posed topless in the October issue of ‘Glamour’ magazine and admitted that the competition in Hollywood can be quite tough — especially with so many young actresses in town.

“I can’t complain about it because I benefitted 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. And now I’m in my early thirties and I’m like, ‘Why did that 24 year old get that part?’ 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.”

Hathaway also touched on her admiration for one younger star, 25-year-old Taylor Swift. “She just seems to be following her heart. I met her—I hope it’s OK to say this—when she and Jake [Gyllenhaal] were together. She was 20 at the time, and we hung out one night. I was like, ‘You are a magnificent creature.’ She was on fire and I’ve watched her become this force of nature.”
