Anne Hathaway (41) had a miscarriage a few years ago. The Oscar winner recently reported this in an interview with “Vanity Fair”. In 2015, she lost her unborn baby – just as she was playing the role of a pregnant woman in an off-Broadway play.

As a reminder: In July 2019, the actress made her pregnancy with her second John Jack (4) public on Instagram – and in the same breath revealed that she and her husband Adam Shulman (42), with whom she has been married since 2012, were “for it.” experienced the hell of infertility and conception. Apparently it wasn’t easy for the couple to have children.

Even before she became pregnant with her first son Jonathan (7), she had a miscarriage. For over six weeks, Hathaway portrayed a fighter pilot whose career ended when she became unexpectedly pregnant, she told Vanity Fair. “At first I couldn’t handle it at all,” she recalled. “I had to re-enact a birth on stage every night.”

Not making the miscarriage public at the time had put her under enormous strain. “It was too much for me, not being able to talk about it while I had to pretend on stage as if everything was okay. I had to tell the truth…” She later told her friends about it.

With her post in 2019, Hathaway wanted to encourage others. Alongside a black-and-white photo of her baby bump, she wrote at the time: “Jokes aside, for anyone going through infertility and conception hell, know that there was no direct path to one of my pregnancies. I send you all much love.”

In the interview, she tearfully explained that it was “really hard” to “want something so badly and wonder if you’re doing something wrong.”
