Anne Hathaway Admits Battle With Depression

by at . Comments

Anne Hathaway says she suffered from anxiety and depression in her teens, but that she rejected medication and instead worked through her troubles.

Tom Cruise is jumping on couches and fist-pumping right now.

"I said to Mom the other day, 'Do you remember that girl? She has now gone, gone to sleep. She has said her piece and she is gone,'" Hathaway tells Britain's Tatler magazine.

"But then I thought, 'I so remember her, only she is no longer part of me.'"

The stunning and talented star of Brokeback Mountain and The Devil Wears Prada, who is active with charitable work, regrets that she caused her family so much anxiety.

"I am sorry she was hurting for so long. It's all so negatively narcissistic to be so consumed with self."

The actress is the latest celebrity to discuss depression recently, joining Mandy Moore and her ex-boyfriend, Zach Braff.

Next up, Hathaway will star as Jane Austen in the movie Becoming Jane. Why play the legendary author? Because of one of her idols, Emma Thompson.

"I was having doubts," she said. "But then I met Emma, who asked me what I was doing. I couldn't tell her I was not going to play Jane Austen. So I just did it."

Hathaway, who's been dating real estate developer Raffaello Follieri, 27, for three years, lives in New York City - because she can't live in Los Angeles. Why?

"I am too pale and I don't drive," she said.

The actress does have a fair complexion, as these Anne Hathaway pictures illustrate. We'll allow her to live anywhere as long as she keeps making movies.
