Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway has revealed her family became Episcopalians after her brother came out.

The Devil Wears Prada star grew up as a Catholic in New Jersey but when Hathaway’s brother Michael told the family he was gay, they decided to leave their faith.

Hathaway told GQ magazine: “The whole family converted to Episcopalianism after my elder brother came out. Why should I support an organisation that has a limited view of my beloved brother?”

The actress said she was currently unsure about her own faith, saying: “So I’m… nothing [no denomination]. F**k it, I’m forming. I’m a work in progress.”

She also discussed screen kisses in the interview, naming Angelina Jolie for having the best movie embraces.

Hathaway said: “Full-on movie kissing … it’s a totally different experience. But really you have to be Angelina Jolie to pull that off and still look good. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I ain’t no Angie.”
