The actress has spoken about how she would not go under the knife, fearing it would negatively impact her career.
When asked if she had undergone rhinoplasty, the Brokeback Mountain star explained, “I wanted a nose job, but now, my nose is what lets me change my face a lot – and I can be glamorous as Agent 99 (in Get Smart), then look rough as a drug addict for (director) Jonathan Demme (in Rachel Getting Married).”
“Your face needs to have character if you’re an actor – otherwise you’re just a face,” Anne explained, praising her looks for helping her get into characters on-screen.
Although she is renowned for her beauty, which has landed her multiple beauty contracts, she admits “I think I’ve got really weird features. I have very large features on a very small head. But, you know, I’m not going to beat myself up. It’s my face. I’m not very pretty.”
Despite lacking confidence in her looks Anne Hathaway is at peace. “But that’s OK because I do know that I look like myself, and I think at the end of the day, as nice as pretty is, authenticity is more important.”
Did Anne Hathaway Get A Nose Job?

“You just want to be cookie-cutter beautiful. And sometimes you think, ‘Maybe I could change something about myself to fit that mould’. I’m no exception to that.” The actress praises her facial features for helping her play a versatile range of characters on-screen.
“I just made a movie where I play a recovering drug addict and I look really rough,” she explained in a 2008 interview. “Your face needs to have character if you’re going to be an actor, or you’re just kind of a face. You’re not really a person or a personality.”
She had admitted that she doesn’t think she would ever change her features with surgery. “If there’s anything in my power to change myself, I’ll do it but in terms of radically changing myself for self-esteem or anything, no, I don’t think I’ll ever do that.”

How Acting Boosted Anne Hathaway’s Self Confidence

She escaped her personal issues by diving into the characters she was playing. She admitted that at the start of her career she loved acting because it helped her ignore the big issues.”Of course, I loved [acting back then] because it meant that I got to leave this moment and be someone else,” she says. “Of course, that came easily when the thing that felt impossible at the time was actually being present.”
For a cover interview with ELLE, Hathaway also briefly explained her self-love journey, saying, “I do my best to not be afraid of what others might say and just focus on enjoying my life.” Hathaway was met with a string of internet hate during the promotional tour of Les Misérables.
“When your self-inflicted pain is suddenly somehow amplified back at you at, say, the full volume of the internet… It’s a thing,” she said during a 2022 Woman in Hollywood speech.“When what happened, happened, I realized I had no desire to have anything to do with this line of energy. On any level. I would no longer create art from this place. I would no longer hold space for it, live in fear of it, nor speak its language for any reason.”
“To anyone. Including myself… Hate seems to me to be the opposite of life; in soil that harsh, nothing can grow properly, if at all.”
