Hey, Summer Campers!
The other day on the introduction to this blog, I went over all the different topics we’ll be discussing in our posts. Remember?
Well, today I’m posting one of our summer camp celebrity posts where you’ll read all about which summer camps your favorite celebrities attended.
Considering that in America alone, over 10 million kids are going to summer camp every year, it’s not really that surprising to find out who in Hollywood—and how many of them—went to summer camp when they were younger.
Today we’re talking about the all-star actress, Anne Hathaway who attended Camp Johnsonburg in northwestern New Jersey. Back in her summer camp days, she always thought she would become a nun when she grew up, but as we all know, her future would take her down a very different path.
Though she’d already acted in a few stage roles and appeared in the television series Get Real, Anne hit stardom by age 18 when she brought Mia Thermopolis to life on the big screen in the Disney film The Princess Diaries in 2001. She then played the same character in the movie’s sequel in 2004.
She’s also famous for the roles she played in lots of other movies such as Hoodwinked, The Devil Wears Prada (in which she got to work alongside her idol, Meryl Streep), and Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland which she did in 2010.
Two years later, she played Selina Kyle in the Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises; and in the same year won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress as Fantine in Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables.
Comparable and reminiscent of such classic actresses as Audrey Hepburn and Judy Garland, Anne Hathaway seems a natural celebrity superstar despite her initial aspirations.
I guess her story just goes to show that you really never can tell. And who knows? Maybe you’ll end up on the big screen and eventually be noted in an Everything Summer Camp blog post about celebrities who attended summer camps when they were little!
Until next time, camp fans.
