Anne Hathaway was pregnant with her first child when she filmed her latest movie, "Colossal." The actress said her pregnancy improved her performance in the movie, which will be released in theaters April 7.

At the red carpet for the movie's premiere, Hathaway expressed her fondness for working on the film. She told E! News she remembered constantly feeling "great joy" while pregnant and it helped on her portrayal of the character Gloria.

"I think that my pregnancy may have added a layer to my performance in this one," the Oscar-winning actress said. "She wasn't depressed. She wasn't put upon. She actually was a party girl and she always brought the fun and I think my baby did that too."

Moviegoers dubbed the dark sci-fi themed "Colossal" as Hathaway's kaiju movie. The actress said she received compliments from people who saw it in advance. They told her she looked different in the film and they found this refreshing.

"I was pregnant - so I was literally like tap dancing on a cloud every day, full of life," Hathaway said, as per Uproxx. "This is probably the most like me."

Hathaway gave birth to her first-born son, Jonathan Rosebank Shulman, with husband Adam Shulman last March 2016. In a 2013 interview with Vogue and just a year after getting married, Hathaway expressed her desire to become a mother.

"I anticipate loving my children quite fiercely," Hathaway said. "I think about it all the time, though it's a silly thing to think about because the kind of mother I'll be depends on the kind of children I have."

Hathaway also said she dreamed of having a baby since she was 16-year-old, as per Daily Mail. She also dreamed of maintaining a career while raising kids and now she's at this point of balancing these two aspirations together.

"Colossal," which also stars Jason Sudeikis, is sort of her comeback film after giving birth. Watch the teaser below.
