Anne Hathaway

Current age: 32

Career at 20: In February 2002, about six months after the release of The Princess Diaries, Anne Hathaway took to the NYC stage to play Lili in a production of Carnival! Later that year, she starred opposite soon-to-be Christian Grey actor Charlie Hunnam in Nicholas Nickleby.

Relationship status at 20: Anne didn't publicly date anyone at that time, but rumors linked her to Hugh Dancy, now married to Claire Danes.

Quoted at 20: A few months before turning 20, Anne was interviewed by the BBC, and she was asked about being typecast after her role in The Princess Diaries. "Well, actually, in my next movie, I am playing a drug-addled prostitute," she joked. "Just kidding. I'm going to school right now, so it'll have to be something pretty special to pull me out of that. If I find it, wonderful, if not, I'm going to graduate with my degree in English and I'll take it from there." Anne eventually finished her degree at NYU.
