Anne Hathaway reveals she had to work heartbreaking acting job after suffering devastating miscarriage

The Hollywood A-lister opened up about her fertility issues

Anne Hathaway has opened up about having to work a heartbreaking acting job after suffering a devastating miscarriage.

The 41-year-old Les Misérables star, who shares two sons, eight-year-old Jonathan and Jack, 4, with her husband, Adam Shulman, shared a little more about her tragic pregnancy loss.

It happened back in 2015 when she was right in the middle of starring in a six week off-Broadway production of one-woman show Grounded.

Anne Hathaway opened up about the heartbreaking acting job she had to do following her miscarriage in 2015.

Speaking to Vanity Fair about the situation, Anne explained: "The first time it didn’t work out for me. I was doing a play and I had to give birth onstage every night."

She only told her friend the truth after they came to visit her backstage after performances, recalling: "It was too much to keep it in when I was onstage pretending everything was fine.."

The Princess Diaries actor added: "It’s really hard to want something so much and to wonder if you’re doing something wrong."

She revealed she was shocked to learn that many of her friends had also gone through similar experiences.

She continued: "I thought, Where is this information? Why are we feeling so unnecessarily isolated? That’s where we take on damage.

"So I decided that I was going to talk about it. The thing that broke my heart, blew my mind, and gave me hope was that for three years after, almost daily, a woman came up to me in tears and I would just hold her, because she was carrying this [pain] around and suddenly it wasn’t all hers anymore."

The Les Misérables star took to Instagram back in 2019 to open up about her fertility journey.

Four years later, in 2019, Anne took to Instagram to announce her second pregnancy.

She posted a black-and-white photo of her baby bump with the caption: "It’s not for a movie…. All kidding aside, for everyone going through infertility and conception hell, please know it was not a straight line to either of my pregnancies. Sending you extra love."

Talking about that Instagram post, Anne explained: "It was more about what I wasn’t going to do.

"I wasn’t going to feel ashamed of something that seemed to me statistically to actually be quite normal."

She added: "Given the pain I felt while trying to get pregnant, it would’ve felt disingenuous to post something all the way happy when I know the story is much more nuanced than that for everyone."
