"I'm not Rihanna," she told the fashion mag. "I'm not cool. When people come up to me in the street, they often want a hug not a photo, and they want that because they like my work."

"For a long time it was me and her [her manager] against the world. I was seen as this bizarre-world good-girl cartoon that I in no way identified with - very vanilla, very sweet, very accessible and not interesting. I had no grit, no sex appeal."

"It doesn't help that the new crop of girls is so gorgeous, and so 22 years old," she said of her recent 30th birthday. "But I'm excited about it."


Hathaway married US actor Adam Shulman last September after dating for four years. She revealed to Harper's Bazaar that she worried she freaked him out after making it clear she wanted to marry him from the moment they first met.

"I think he thought I was a little nuts, which I am a bit, but I'm also nice... I've never really talked about this, but I was just very honest with him. I knew from the second I met him that he was the love of my life. I also knew that I couldn't have met him at a worse time... I took my trust out for a ridiculous joyride with him.'

"He walks into a room, and I light up, I can't help it. A few days into it [filming Les Misérables] I said "I'm having too much fun, I just want to play with you and I need to be really sad right now".'

The February 2013 issue of UK Harper's Bazaar is out today.
