Anne Hathaway is fascinated by the concept of space and time in the universe and devotes her free time to learning more about science
Anne Hathaway is obsessed with reading physics textbooks.
Despite her glamorous celebrity lifestyle, the Oscar-nominated actress has revealed she is a secret geek who loves nothing more than reading science journals and learning about atoms.
She said: "I'm interested in elementary particles.
"What I like thinking about is how time and space exist in the universe and how we understand it. Any spare time I have I bury my head in a physics textbook. What I also think is fascinating is that the elements at the atomic and subatomic level make-up everything. You, me, the buildings, our souls, our minds. Remember I'm living in Los Angeles, so I'm interested in energies and vibes. Look, it's not a very polished argument but I'm learning."
The 27-year-old beauty is also swatting up on revolutionary physicist Albert Einstein and is hoping to befriend a scientist who can help her learn more.
She added to Britain's GQ magazine: "I'm reading a lot about Einstein. I like theories. I want to understand string theory. I'm dying for someone to explain quarks to me!"
