Anne Hathaway is in the next chapter of her career — but she's hardly slowing down as she gets older.

“I’ve always been really upfront about being an ambitious person,” the 41-year-old told PORTER in an interview. “I have goals, I have dreams; they don’t look much different than they did when I was [younger], but I’m still pursuing them.”

The actress is still pursuing her dreams in her forties.

Though the brunette beauty's life looks a bit different than when she was starting out, she is still surrounded by the same team she's had since she was a teenager.

“There’s really good seasoning on the pan in a lot of the relationships in my life, and I feel like I’m still growing,” she shared, adding that she's grateful to still be "invited back to the table" and take new risks.

Anne Hathaway shares two sons with her husband, Adam Shulman.

“When I started out [in this industry] as a child, I was warned that my career would fall off a cliff at the age of 35, which is something I know a lot of women face,” Hathaway stated. “The thing that has evolved during [that time] is that more women are having careers deeper into their lives, which I think is fantastic. Obviously, it doesn’t mean we should have a ticker tape parade – someone said this to me the other day: ‘There’s so much to be proud of and there’s so much to fix.’”

Anne Hathaway wants to lead with her 'sweetness.'

“Being funny feels riskier than being sincere, because I think my sense of humor is different to what people think my sense of humor is going to be; I think it’s easily misunderstood, and sharper,” she said. “Part of the reason I feel an extra pressure to make sure I’m very clear about what I say, and how I say it, is because I trust the sincerity."

“Also, the world has so many spiky things in it – do I really need to throw a barb out there? I don’t think so,” she added. “I would much rather put my sweetness out, and lead with that.”
