She is famous for her radiant smile and her smooth, even Snow White skin. Actress Anne Hathaway (40) is one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. In an interview with People magazine, the mother of two sons now talks about her personal beauty secrets and reveals why she feels better at 40 than in her twenties.

“Aging is just another word for living,” says Hathaway. “And what you do with it depends on you. I feel great – better than I did in my twenties. And that’s because I’m taking better care of myself.”

After a certain age, says the Oscar winner, you have to treat your body differently: “In my thirties I stopped drinking alcohol. I just couldn’t do it anymore. I couldn’t lead the life I wanted to lead when I drank alcohol drank.” Now in her 40s, she also feels like she needs to eat differently, Hathaway said.

Consistent skin care that is appropriate for her age is also important: According to “People,” the actress regularly uses a firming cream and an eye mask.

But what is most important is a relaxed attitude, adds Hathaway. For example, after pregnancy: “The body needs three years to fully recover from pregnancy. Just let your body be your body. Take care of yourself and have no expectations.”

The same applies to the topic of fashion: “You just have to be yourself – and that feels wonderful,” says the 40-year-old. “I was given so much clothing at such a young age, and I often didn’t appreciate it. Today I wear the things that make me happy – and I’m grateful for that.”
