Actress Anne Hathaway has revealed her family left the Catholic church and 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 organization that has a limited view of my beloved brother?”

Hathaway, who also co-starred in Brokeback Mountain as Jack Twist’s wife, said that the Episcopal church isn’t perfect for her either.

“So I’m… nothing (no denomination),” she said, “Fuck it, I’m forming. I’m a work in progress.”

Hathaway’s interview appears in the March print issue of the British edition of GQ.
