    Anne Hathaway admits motherhood is "more than just a challenge"

    The 'Devil Wears Prada' star - who has Jonathan, four, and Jack, 12 months, with her husband Adam Shulman - has found "tonnes of opportunities" as a mom but admits it has been a "learning curve"


    Asked what her biggest challenge as a mother is, she told Australia's Stellar magazine: "During the lockdown? Can I curse? The f****** laundry! But, you know, I’m always hesitant to frame things in the realm of challenges because I think it sets a tone. As a mum, I’ve found tonnes of opportunities. There’s obviously a learning curve – you just have to be kind to yourself with that because you do feel like you’re doing everything wrong, especially in the early days. But it’s more than just a challenge."

    Meanwhile, Anne previously insisted she knows she isn't the "perfect" parent.

    She said: "He’s so beautiful. I’m not perfect, but if I’m frustrated or distracted, I’m good at making sure he’s safe and walking away, calming down and then coming back to him. [It's hard] telling that harsh voice to be quiet. I fall short every day, but I’m not going to beat myself up about it."

    The 'Serenity' star finds it really "hard" leaving her son.

    She admitted: "Leaving him is hard. I don’t want to complain. I love what I do and I’m not ready to stop doing it. I was told that once I had kids, I wouldn’t care about my career any more. I was, like, 'Nah.' But I love something so much more now ... I try to be nice to myself. I’m not big on mommy guilt. I just don’t really do it unless I really, really, really, really, really need to."
