Anne Hathaway is a famous North American actress known for her roles in films like Princess Despite Her, Best Enemies, and countless others. She will also star in Robert De Niro’s upcoming film, Armageddon Time.

Although Anne and her double both belong to the art world, the latter devoted himself to painting rather than theater. Francisco de Goya was a Spanish painter who painted some of the best paintings reflecting the historical crisis that occurred in the 19th and 20th centuries. Francisco died in Bordeaux, France. Anne Hathaway, on the other hand, has French and Irish origins, which makes France a possible hidden link between these two personalities.
