Anne Hathaway Comes Clean on Her 'Disgusting' Habit

Anne HathawayAnne Hathaway is such a class act that we never would've guessed that she once had a very nasty little habit. The 32-year-old Oscar winner recently revealed her secret to The New York Times Magazine, and were shocked to find out that she was addicted to cigarettes for years.


She said she picked it up during filming 2008's Rachel Getting Married, managed to quit for a few years, but then started again! Thankfully it all seems to be in the past now, and she says she's done with cigarettes for good.

"I've quit ... I got hooked for a few years."

She admitted to her recent relapse, which happened during the filming of her upcoming drama. "I had a four-year break, and then actually when I was producing Song One, I started smoking again," she continued. "It's easy to romanticize it when you haven't done it in a while, but it's actually pretty disgusting."

I think a lot more actresses struggle with this issue than can admit it, so good for Anne coming clean about it! It's a high pressure job to be "on" for hours on end -- not to mention the struggle to stay rail thin in Hollywood.

She also said she doesn't judge anyone who uses e-cigs or vapor. "I don't judge the vape," she admitted. "I know some people who used to be three-pack-a-day smokers, and I'd much prefer them having the vape. I don't want to give them any excuse not to vape."

Hathaway is cutting out more than just nicotine in 2015 -- and she claims it has nothing to do with a potential baby. She's decided to give up drinking alcohol! For a month, at least.

"I have one, but I don't want to mention it because it's scaring me," she said in response to being asked about her New Year's resolutions. "And it has nothing to do with pregnancy. But it's not because of a problem. It's just because why not: I'm going to really prioritize my health this year and not drink, at least not in January. I want to take a month off."

Whoa, that's quite a big commitment! Does she know the Golden Globes are in January? It's going to be interesting to see if she manages to keep it!

How many actresses do you think secretly smoke?
