Hathaway began on the path to movie stardom with Disney's "The Princess Diaries" in 2001. She plays Mia Thermopolis, the American granddaughter of Queen Clarisse Renaldi (Julie Andrews) of Genovia. Intending to persuade Mia to accept her duties as heir to the throne, the queen gives Mia "princess lessons" as well as a complete makeover. Comedy ensues.
