Anne Hathaway leaves Catholic Church over gays

Screen siren Anne Hathaway, 27, the Oscar nominated actress with Irish and French ancestry, has left the Catholic Church – along with the rest of her family – because of its intolerant views on homosexuality.

 Anne grew up wanting to become a nun but she shunned Catholicism when she learned her older brother, Michael, was gay.
 
“The whole family converted to Episcopalianism after my elder brother came out,” she said recently. “Why should I support an organization that has a limited view of my beloved brother?” But the Episcopal church plan didn't really work out for her either. "So I'm - nothing,” she said. “I'm a work in progress.”
