Anne Hathaway recently revealed that she quit smoking for the second time. The 32-year-old actress admits that she became addicted to cigarettes after acting in the film Rachel Getting Married. She then took up smoking again last year while working on her upcoming film, but she managed to kick the habit a second time.
“I’ve quit. I got hooked for a few years. I had a four-year break, and then actually when I was producing Song One, I started smoking again. It’s easy to romanticize it when you haven’t done it in a while, but it’s actually pretty disgusting,” Hathaway said.
Hathaway, who went cold turkey to get over her nicotine addiction, also revealed that she has nothing against electronic cigarettes.
“I don’t judge the vape. 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,” the Interstellar actress told The New York Times.
And it seems smoking isn’t the only habit that Anne intends on quitting. When she was asked about her New Year’s resolutions, Hathaway said, “I have one, but I don’t want to mention it because it’s scaring me. 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.”

Hathaway also opened up about her and James Franco’s often-criticized stint as Oscar hosts. When asked about what she thinks went wrong, Hathaway told The New York Times, “I think it’s so obvious that it doesn’t even need to be identified.” However, the Les Miserables actress has high hopes for Neil Patrick Harris who will be hosting the show this year. “He’ll be great. He’s a natural host,” the actress said.
