And she can sing, rap and lipsync as she won against Emily Blunt on Lip Sync Battle with her performance of Wrecking Ball. It’s still one of my favorite episodes of the show.

A man told me that for a woman I was very opinionated. I said , ‘for a man you’re kind of ignorant.’ – Anne Hathaway

I do consider myself opinionated and I’m not afraid of who knows it because I feel that there are things in life that people shouldn’t do, like animal abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence or just be an arrogant asshat. Unfortunately for women, the world is still mostly dominated by men no matter how hard we shake our feminist fists. But we finally have our first female vice president, Kamala Harris. I don’t know that much about her and yes I voted for the Libertarian candidate Jo Jorgensen but I am quite pleased that Trump lost and there is finally a woman in a position of power. It took all this time for it to happen and it excites me thinking this could be the beginning of something wonderful.

I believe I’ve always been a big believer in equality. No one has ever been able to tell me I couldn’t do something because I was a girl. – Anne Hathaway

I think it was when I was in elementary school when I first experienced inequality when I wanted to play drums for an instrument and the teacher said that’s moreso for boys and why not play clarinet or flute and I felt a bit dissed. I didn’t want to play clarinet and flute spots got snatched up quickly so I got stuck playing an instrument I really didn’t want to play. Of course I didn’t continue but it did help me to learn how to read music and that I’m grateful for. I really don’t think I have been stopped from doing much else because I’m a girl. I suppose it helps that being an artist, photographer, writer isn’t exactly only for women or men. With arts (granted I’m not talking about those who are paid for it) there does seem to be a good balance of male and female. I already know that men are typically paid more than women but I have also seen women lead bands, play guitar, even play drums.

In my household, being gay was, and is – no big deal. When my brother came out we hugged him, said we loved him, and that was that. Just for the record, we don’t feel that there is anything alternative about our family values. I don’t consider my just an ally to the LGBT community, I consider myself your family. If anyone, ever, tries to hurt you I’m gonna give them hell. There are people who’ve said that I’m being brace for being openly supportive of gay marriage, gay adoption with all due respect, I humbly dissent. I’m not being brave, I’m being a decent human being. Love is a human experience, not a political statement. – Anne Hathaway

I am not anti gay marriage or gay adoption or anti gay. It took me awhile to become comfortable and figure out that what had happened to me when I was 11 had nothing to do with homosexuality and more to do with violence. But it was that trauma that made me fear homosexuals for at least a few years because I was molested by girls and then the rumors of my sexuality which were fueled by the twisted truth. It wasn’t until I was out of school and living in New York City and I met my first friend, a gay man that opened my eyes and mind to it all. I’ve since had and have bisexual and homosexual friends.
