Quote of the Day: Hathaway on childhood

Young, rising actress Anne Hathaway, star of the new film The Princess Diaries, Entertainment Tonight on growing up with acting in her blood–despite her parents’ opinions on the matter.

“By [senior year of high school], I’d done the prom thing, I’d been on tons of sports teams. But my parents didn’t want me to be an actor when I was very little, because they didn’t want it to influence my childhood and they wanted me to look back and say, ‘I was allowed to scrape my knees … I was allowed to run around and not worry about call times and film insurance.'”
