Princess Despite Herself is an American comedy released in 2001. Directed by Garry Marshall (Pretty Woman), it is adapted from the literary saga of the same name by Meg Cabot in 2000. The film tells the story of Mia Thermopolis (Anne Hathaway), a shy, bumbling and frumpy American teenager, who learns that she is the heir to the throne of the (fictional) European kingdom of Genovia (located somewhere between France and Spain). With the help of her newly found grandmother, Queen Clarisse (Julie Andrews), the neo-princess will have to decide whether she wants to claim the throne she inherited or give up her title for good. What definitely upset her life as a high school student..
Princess in spite of herself is the very first film by Anne Hathaway, who had then only played in the series The Green family / Get real. What made him land this role? She fell out of her chair during the audition, in other words, she was a perfect match for the character! The film's success spawned a sequel, A Princess Wedding, three years later. A third part has also been in the works for several years but we still don't see anything coming...
