Anne Hathaway is done being "a bitch," even if it was only for one day out of the month.
The "Ocean's 8" star told Glamour she is on a path toward peace after a history of "rage."
"I have a history with rage," she said for the magazine's June/July cover story. "I used to do this thing where I was like, 'I'm nice 29 days out of 30, and then I give myself complete permission to be a bitch to anyone, about anything.' I realized that if I could actually move away from the judgment and deal with my emotions in the moment, I didn't actually need the extra day. Rage doesn't lead you to a place of peace. And for me the goal is not happiness. The goal is peace."
"I'm interested in living a very honest life. I don't know if that makes me a boring person. I don't really care if it does," she said. "It would be easier if I was better at being misleading or sneaky. I know how all that stuff works. I'm not a naive idiot. I know if I was a little bit mean to everybody, people would be like, 'Oh, she's fun. I like her. Come have a drink.' And I'm just like, 'Can we have a drink and not try to tear each other apart?'"
Hathaway, who is now married and has a young son, also opened up about her experience with sexual harassment in the entertainment industry throughout her long career, but didn't get into too many details.
"I've had a 20-year career and I've had some really, really bad experiences, but I've had a lot of great ones too -- with members of both genders," Hathaway explained. "While they do not begin to approach the atrocious, galling stories others have shared in recent months, I have had negative on-set experiences, some of a sexual nature. Some are from the beginning of my career, some are more recent -- all are unacceptable."
"I think that there's got to be some guys who get high off the power. But in a lot of cases, it's an echo chamber," she added. "Most guys have never seen anything different."
Now she's on a mission for peace in her life and others'.
"Being a 35-year-old cisgendered woman who has experienced the everyday, abusive imbalance of the world also made me want to be a part of a movement for change...I know the world can be far worse for others than it has been to me, but I suppose, like most everyone who has been hurt, I want to protect others from going through the worst of what I experienced," she said. "I want to help make what I consider the best of my experiences to be the norm, as it always should have been."
