Anne Hathaway’s family left Catholicism to support her gay brother
“Anne Hathaway‘s family left the Catholic Church because of its intolerance of homosexuality. Anne grew up wanting to become a nun but shunned Catholicism when she learned her older brother, Michael, was gay.”
Hathaway says, “The whole family converted to Episcopalianism after my elder brother came out. Why should I support an organization that has a limited view of my beloved brother?”
Anne was nominated for an Oscar for Rachel Getting Married [’08]. She’s also co-starred in The Devil Wears Prada, The Princess Diaries, and Brokeback Mountain.
