Kate McCauley Anne Hathaway
On July 18, 2019, while Anne accepted the Golden Globe for “Les Misérables”, she thanked her mother for keeping her from becoming a ‘little monster.’ Anne first saw her mother perform the role of Fantine in Les Misérables when she was 8. She later drew on it in 2012 auditioning for it while she was asked to do the character’s death scene.
Kate told The New York Post; “Annie hadn’t prepared for it. “She said, ‘Mom, I just remembered what you did, so that’s what I did.’ But when you get a shout-out like that — wow! I must have done something right!”
After her family moved to New Jersey she signed up Anne for acting classes at Millburn’s Paper Mill Playhouse. She said their daughter yearned to perform at an early age.
“She’d come and see me in things and concentrate with the most rapt attention you can imagine!”
She, however, said that together with her husband they denied Anne the chance to play the little girl in her road tour of “Les Miz.”
“My husband and I had seen perfectly nice children become little monsters with all that attention. We said, ‘Absolutely no, darling. Your job right now is to be a child.’ ”
At the age of 15, Anne asked her parents for an agent her mother said; “She said, ‘Maybe I could get commercials that could help pay for college.’ And we thought, ‘Well, that’s a good point.’ ”
They found her an agent and a manager but stayed in the wings. “I remember saying to Annie, ‘You’re entering a world where all you’re going to hear is yes. We’re the ones who are going to say no when you need to hear it.’ And I think that really helped keep her grounded.”
