(NEW YORK) — Anne Hathaway strikes a glamorous pose on the latest cover of Harper’s Bazaar’s U.K. edition, but she certainly doesn’t consider herself sexy.
The 30-year-old actress says she can’t compare herself to a certain pop diva. “I’m not Rihanna,” she said in the February issue. “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 [my manager] against the world,” the Les Miserables star said. “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.”
This isn’t the first time Hathaway has waxed over her looks.
In the January issue of Glamour magazine, the actress revealed that her obsession with being thin is a source of “shame” and said she constantly worries about her body.
“I still feel the stress over, ‘Am I thin enough? Am I too thin? Is my body the right shape?’” she says. “There’s an obsessive quality to it that I thought I would’ve grown out of by now. It’s an ongoing source of shame for me.”
