CosmoGIRL!: How did you know you wanted to be an actress?

Anne Hathaway: I never had a choice. I've been acting for as long as I can remember. Whenever I played games, I would be in a different world. Like, if we were playing a war game, all of a sudden I was on a battlefield. You couldn't tell me I wasn't. So in that sense I've always been an actress.

CG!: You've had a "fairy tale" of a career and now you have two movies about princesses coming up Ella Enchanted and Princess Diaries 2: The Royal Engagement. Do you plan on doing any more "royal" movies?

AH: I'm done with tiaras for now. But if I were to do another fairy tale story, I'd want to play either the villain or the fairy.

CG!: You took a year off from acting to attend Vassar College. Were you treated differently because you're a celebrity?

AH: I felt like an odd duck, but my friends are so wonderful and smart. Every time I go away, I tell them to keep me up to date with what they're reading. I don't want to get too far behind. They'll be having conversations about French philosophers from the 17th century, and I'll be like, "Oh, man, I don't know this one. I missed that class."

CG!: What's the craziest thing that happened while you were at school?

AH: I was at the campus dance club and the cheesiest thing in the entire world happened--the entire baseball team asked me out at the same time! I was sitting there with a few friends, when all of a sudden, this guy comes up to me and he's like, "Hi, I'm the pitcher on the baseball team. We ALL want to take you out, so maybe some time you could come to a dinner or come to one of our baseball parties?"

CG!: Did you say yes?

AH: No, I told him I'd see him around campus and maybe make it to a game, but that I was reading Beowulf and that kind of takes up a lot of time.

CG!: Besides immersing yourself in great literature, do you have any dating advice for CosmoGIRL!s?

AH: You have to be open to it and willing to put yourself out there. I used to complain about how there were never any guys, but that was when I was in an apartment by myself. Of course there weren't any guys there! We all have these moments when we hate that we're single--but I've stopped doing that! When I'm alone, it's supposed to be that way, and I'm supposed to learn something from it.
