Anne Hathaway Used to Hate Exercise, Now "Really Likes It"

Are You an Exercise Lover or Hater?

Anne Hathaway is a reformed exercise-hater. The actress has said before that she hates to work out, but that all changed when she had to get ready (that is, fit into her costume) to play Catwoman in the upcoming movie The Dark Knight Rises. Anne said she used to hate exercise, but once she grew stronger she became "that person" who loves to exercise. "There's a workout hump where you're so weak that you hate everything and everything's painful, and you look like an idiot," Anne said. Now she says about exercise, "I really like it!" and counts herself a fan of Bikram yoga.

I consider myself a healthy person, but I don't think that exercise comes naturally to me. If you would've told my college self I'd be a gym rat when I grew older, I'd have laughed. I didn't know how to work any of the machines at my school's gym, and the thought of working out every day seemed so foreign to me. Even now, it's taken a long time for me to find a workout routine that I can stick with, and sometimes I still struggle with making exercise a no-brainer part of my daily routine. Some of my other friends, however, never think twice about making time to do so and say they don't feel right if they skip their normal routine.

Did it take you a while to love exercise, do you still hate it, or have you always loved to work out?

I love the feeling I get afterwards, but I'll never like actually doing it! I'm a very sedentary person. I just enjoy being still!
