Anne Hathaway, who turns 41 in November, has stated that she is happier today than she was in her twenties. In a new interview with People, the Oscar winner also discussed how ageing is ‘personal’ and that we should stop questioning women about it. Some Instagram users were offended by her comments, branding her a ‘hypocrite’ for using ‘Botox & fillers’ herself. “Ageing is just a different term for living,” she explained to People. And what you choose to do with it after that is entirely up to you. I feel fantastic — better than I did in my twenties since I’m taking better care of myself… I had to give up booze in my 30s. I couldn’t take it any longer. I couldn’t live the life I desired while drinking. And now that I’m in my forties, I’m seeing that I need to maintain myself nutritionally differently.
