You mostly see Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway in couture gowns at award shows and fashion magazines, but the 33-year-old revealed her porcelain skin and an obvious baby bump in a cute red bikini recently.

The Les Miserable star wished her followers on Instagram a Happy New year and said posting a bikini picture "is a little out of character" for her.

She said that while at the beach, she noticed she was being photographed by paparazzi. If "this kind of photo" was going to be out in the world, the Academy Award winner said she rather have it on her terms.

She added that the image should be one that makes her happy, and with her consent and choice of filter.

The mummy-to-be had her fair share of negative paparazzi photographs published, including one where she accidentally flashed her crotch while at a Les Miserables Premiere in New York City in 2012.

She was getting out of the limousine when her dress slid upwards, resulting in the unfortunate wardrobe malfunction. Hathaway is also known for flashing her middle finger at paparazzis.

This is her first child with husband Adam Shulman. The pair got married in 2012.
