The `One Day` actress explained while she was keen to enter the Christian order when she was a child, it was always more of a "side-bar thing" as she was secretly hoping to fulfil her dreams of becoming a movie star.
She said: "When I was younger I thought about becoming a nun for a while. You know how it is when you`re growing up and you`re going to be a lot of different things, but I actually wanted to be an actress before I wanted to be a nun. The nun was more of a side-bar thing."
However, the 28-year-old star admitted she does struggle to cope with the pressure of "nailing" her dramatic performances, and is always "devastated" if she doesn`t feel she`s got it exactly right.
Anne added to Britain`s OK! magazine: "The only thing I ever feel pressure about, and the only thing I ever feel devastated about, is not nailing a performance."
