Anne Hathaway wanted to be a nun when she was younger.

The 'One Day' actress explained while she was keen to enter the Christian order when she was a child, it was always more of a "side-bar thing" as she was secretly hoping to fulfil her dreams of becoming a movie star.

She said: "When I was younger I thought about becoming a nun for a while. You know how it is when you're growing up and you're going to be a lot of different things, but I actually wanted to be an actress before I wanted to be a nun. The nun was more of a side-bar thing."

However, the 28-year-old star admitted she does struggle to cope with the pressure of "nailing" her dramatic performances, and is always "devastated" if she doesn't feel she's got it exactly right.

Anne added to Britain's OK! magazine: "The only thing I ever feel pressure about, and the only thing I ever feel devastated about, is not nailing a performance."
