Anne Hathaway gained recognition in Hollywood with her role as Princess Mia in the 2001 Disney film The Princess Diaries. The role left a lasting impression on the audience and the actress became people’s princess.

She said that every night she would try to make a particular line funny. One night, she said it and everyone was thrilled.
