Anne Hathaway can related to Lindsay Lohan’s hot troubled life, even though the two actresses seem to be total opposites when it comes to the gossip magazines, but they actually share more than many people realize.
British tabloid The Sun reports that Anne Hathaway, 29, recently stated that she and the Mean Girls actress “have both gone through some tough times, it’s just that Lohan’s were unfortunately more in the public eye,” she said.
“Lindsay Lohan and I have more in common than people think,” the actress told the newspaper. “We’ve all done things we shouldn’t. It is just that I did stuff at college when nobody knew about it, so I’m not a Saint.”
“I wasted time doing self-destructive things. I found out you can only dance on so many table tops. I got all that out of my system, and I am healthy and grounded,” she added.
However, Hathaway did receive her share of media scrutiny in 2008, when her boyfriend at the time, Raffaello Follieri, was arrested for fraud, and she was publicly forced to return some of the jewelry that he had given to her.
“My mother, Kate McCauley, taught me to be always understanding of other people and to have a sense of humor about yourself,” she said. “If you don’t look back and have a laugh at things like that, you really are taking yourself and life too seriously.”
Lohan, 25, will be making her comeback this Saturday, March 3, when she hosts “Saturday Night Live.”
