Anne Hathaway Washington, June 23 (ANI): Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway prepared for the gender-bending role in the Shakespeare play by walking through the streets of New York City in drag.

The 26-year-old actress’ role as Viola, a girl who disguises herself as a man called Cesario in the play called ‘Twelfth Night’, has been appreciated by the audience.

“I wake up in the morning and the first breath I take is in the devotion of acting… I was feeling like I could do more to get into my character,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling New York Magazine.

“So I decided, What if I walked around New York trying to pass for a boy? What if I had to make people look twice to figure out what I was?

“I kind of got dressed up, and there were six photographers outside… It’s the most delicious, exhausting challenge,” she added. (ANI)
