This is the important life lesson that Anne Hathaway has learned after giving up alcohol

Anne Hathaway became one of the great actresses in Hollywood. Her Oscar for best supporting role for Les Miserables proved it. However, little by little she was forgotten, a situation that, unfortunately, has lasted so long over time that it ended up affecting her mental health.

The American actress has opened up on the channel with Vanity Fair to review these last years of her life, in which she has had problems with drinking, barely had a job and has practically had to reinvent herself to be able to get ahead. "Many people wouldn't give me roles because they were very worried about how toxic my image had become on the Internet," she confessed.

With the perspective that time has given her, the actress has pointed out what is most important when it comes to receiving so much criticism: "The key is not to let it block you. You have to continue being brave." In this sense, she has commented that those performers who, in difficult moments, prefer not to draw "too much attention" are wrong: "It is better not to be an actor. You are a tightrope walker. You are a daredevil."

Hathaway, therefore, is aware that it is always owed to the public, who in the end is the one who decides, in some way, what will become of her, even if that means receiving as many negative comments as possible: "You ask people to invest their time, their money, their attention and their care in you. So you have to give them something worthwhile."

Going through this whole ordeal of depression, teasing and drinking, in which she also had an abortion and fertility problems, has taught her to be okay despite what others say: "It's the first time I know myself so well. "I don't live by what others think of me. I know what I think and I am connected to my feelings."

Thus, she has learned that she has to prioritize herself and do everything that can give her true benefit, without side effects. "Many of my lifestyle choices are made for mental health," the actress said, emphasizing that she has stopped "participating in things that I know are exhausting or that can cause spirals."
