The Les Miserables actress has enjoyed huge career success, but she admits it hasn't been easy for her at all. ‘Even though I've had great success, touchwood, it hasn't been easy.
A lot of people have told me, 'You're not this and so can't play that,' and I can't tell you the amount of times I've been told I'm not sexy,’ contactmusic.com quoted the 31-year-old actor as saying.
She feels she's been daring enough to try on different parts and like to pursue her roles with passion.
‘I just go, 'I'm a lot of things. Just because I don't wear my sexiness overtly doesn't mean that I can't become that girl for a role. That's what I do; I become things. Use your imagination, buddy.'
‘So in terms of not listening to what other people told me about who I was as an actress and then really pursuing it, I think I've been daring in that way,’ Hathaway added. She was seen a ‘sexy’ role in Dark Knight Rises.
