Hathaway has revealed how filming on an Irish farm turned her into a vegetarian.
The 24-year-old The Devil Wears Prada star was turned off meat while shooting the biographical drama Becoming Jane.
The story, which was shot in Dublin, Wicklow, Meath and Offaly, tells the story of Jane Austen's romance with a young Irishman before she found fame.
During the shoot, she could not bear to eat meat after watching the birth of lambs at a farm.
The actress, who likes organic foods, rarely ate meat before she started work on the movie, but her experience on the farm really churned her stomach.
And having fervent vegan vegan /veg·an/ (ve´gan) (vej´an) a vegetarian whose diet excludes all food of animal origin.
n. James Cromwell, who played Austen's father in the film, alongside her during production didn't help either.

Brooklyn-born Hathaway said: "I'm a flexatarian, which means I eat meat when I feel like I'm going to die or pass out, but I eat mostly vegetarian food.
"That said, we were filming alongside a sheep farm and it was lambing season and all these little lambs were going around and were so alive.
"I'd never eaten lamb but I just couldn't eat any meat while making the movie.
"James Cromwell was there and he's this hardcore, intimidating vegan, so I especially felt uncomfortable having anything to do with eating animals around him."
