The family-friendly actress has a squeaky clean reputation in Hollywood – minus the scandal surrounding her fraudulent ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri, who is currently serving 4 1/2 years in prison – but the celebrated thespian reveals in a new interview that she is no saint.
“Thanks to Mom, I never sit in judgment,” she explains in an interview with The Sun about what her mother taught her. “Lindsay Lohan and I have more in common than people think. We’ve all done things we shouldn’t.”
The 29-year-old, who rose to fame in 2001’s The Princess Diaries, explains that, unlike Lohan though, she got through her “bad girl” stage without anyone knowing about it.
“It is just that I did stuff at college when nobody knew about it, so I’m not a saint. I wasted time doing self-destructive things.”
“I found out you can only dance on so many table tops. I got all that out of my system and I am healthy and grounded.”
Next up for Hathaway, who recently got engaged to her longtime boyfriend Adam Shulman, is the latest installment of the Batman franchise, The Dark Knight Rises, where she shows off her fabulous figure in a latex bodysuit playing Catwoman.
