Hathaway made her debut in 1999 in the television series Get Real, but
her career was not established until she starred in the Disney comedy
The Princess Diaries (2001) opposite Julie Andrews. The film was
well-received by critics and its success established her career and
popularity. In the following three years Hathaway continued appearing in
Disney-directed films and had the lead role in Ella Enchanted and The
Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement (both 2004). Hathaway took more
creative control over her career with her next projects and co-starred
in the mature-themed Havoc and Brokeback Mountain (both 2005). After
appearing in nude scenes in both, her contract with Disney was
terminated. Her next film The Devil Wears Prada (2006), in which she
starred opposite Meryl Streep, became the highest-grossing North
American film of her career to date.
