Hathaway, who acknowledged that she might not have always been able to show such generosity to fans early in her career, expressed admiration for Andrews’ professionalism and grace while also reflecting on her development as an actress.

Under the direction of the late Garry Marshall and based on Gina Wendkos’ adaptation of Meg Cabot’s novel, ‘The Princess Diaries’ was a huge hit in 2001, starring Hathaway as Mia Thermopolis and featuring an amazing ensemble cast.

Reviewing movie sequences, Hathaway emphasized the significant influence the movie had on her life and career while expressing amazement at the magic produced by Marshall and Andrews.

Although ‘The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement’ has a sequel in the works, Andrews has voiced concerns about going too far in revisiting the series. Hathaway recognises the patience needed in the filmmaking process, though, and is still excited about the possibility of a third instalment.

Hathaway is thrilled about her next endeavours, which include the romantic comedies ‘The Idea of You’ and ‘Mothers’ Instinct,’ in which Jessica Chastain co-stars. All things considered, Hathaway is still proud of her role in ‘The Princess Diaries,’ realizing the importance of it to her life and professional path.
