Anne Hathaway is Quitting Fashion For the Year. Come Again?

Anne Hathaway is one of the most loveable ladies in Tinsletown. She’s incredibly beautiful, super charismatic and unbelievably talented.
Recently, the 30-year-old actress dropped 25 pounds for her role as Fantine in the soon-to-be-released “Les Misérables,” and dished to Glamour magazine on how the weight loss has affected her frame of mind. Oh, and she’s quitting fashion for the year … say what?!
On her shopping hiatus:
"I looked at my life when I was on my honeymoon, which was gorgeous, and I thought, I need nothing,'" she says. "I'm not buying myself a single thing for the rest of this year."
On her marriage to Adam Shulman:
"I feel like I've found my other half, and I'm so excited about getting to love him for the rest of our lives. I would never have gotten married if it weren't for him. You have to want to be married to someone. You have to feel that reciprocated. Marriage for marriage's sake doesn't make any sense to me, and I found someone with whom I could put my money where my mouth is, I guess."
On her hubby:
"He's a good man. He's beyond intelligent. He loves fearlessly. His beliefs are beautiful. He's my best friend. I love him. I just feel that I have the greatest husband in the world for me. You know, we get a lot of pressure to define ourselves as women by how wild we are: How many guys did you sleep with? How drunk did you get? And we all bow to that. We've all done that walk of shame at one point or another."
On her dramatic weight loss:
"I still feel the stress over 'Am I thin enough? Am I too thin? Is my body the right shape?' There's an obsessive quality to it that I thought I would've grown out of by now. It's an ongoing source of shame for me."
On the One Billion Rising campaign:
"It’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that a billion women have been raped or beaten, just the enormity of that. When I was in college, I’d heard that one in four women would be raped, and I thought, 'God, that means I must know someone who was raped.' Sure enough, I found out a week later that a friend had been. A billion is too big because one is too big."
