Anne Hathaway, as 'Harper's Bazaar' November Covergirl, Gets Daring and Silences Those Hathahaters

It's entirely possibly that no one puts up with more oddly placed hate than Anne Hathaway. Therefore, there's probably no one more fitting to cover the Harper’s Bazaar November 2014 Daring Issue than Anne Hathaway. Girlfriend has been to hell and back thanks to the widespread Hathahaters of 2013, but these days, the Oscar winning actress is stronger, bolder, and of course, daring.

Hathaway has never been one to shy away from controversial fashion decisions. Remember that infamous petal-pink Prada Oscar gown that inspired the mock Twitter account @AnneHathawayNipples? Well, Hathaway addresses both the gown (that the screen queen herself deems her most daring outfit to date) that overshadowed her Supporting Actress Oscar win and the backlash she was subsequently bombarded with that caused her to shy away from the spotlight. But now, the Interstellar star is back and as confident as ever in the edgy shoot for Bazaar, brazenly stating, “I am getting more daring now… People treated me a certain way. But I’ve grown from it. This whole thing has made me a way more compassionate and loving person. And I don’t feel sorry for myself.” Sit down, haters. Queen Anne is back. Don’t believe me? Just check out some of these gorgeous shots from the Harper’s Bazaar Daring Issue spread, plus some of her best moments from the interview. Yes, I dare you.

1. On Public Opinion Affecting Her Career

“I had directors say to me, ‘I think you’re great. You’re perfect for this role, but I don’t know how audiences will accept you because of all this stuff, this baggage.’”

2. On Her Style Icon

Hathaway draws style inspiration from Man Repeller ’s Leandra Medine: “I feel empowered by her. Not just her humor… She wants girls to dress for themselves, be goofy, awesome girls.”

3. And Her Personal Style

“I’ll wear my mom jeans in public that haven’t been tailored ‘just so’ yet, just because they feel good.”

4. On Being An Introvert

“It’s easier to think about the way I’m least daring. When I meet people for the first time, I’m friendly but shy. I’m much less outwardly nervous than I used to be, but I still get anxious sometimes.”

5. And Finding Her Own Happiness

“For a long time I was afraid of the harsh things people would say about me, but I might as well be happy.”
