Anne Hathaway may have fallen into royalty in The Princess Diaries, but it turns out that there's one real-life royal that she admires the most.

When asked by an adorable 6-year-old fan named Sammy on Good Morning America who her favorite princess is, the Rio 2 star first said, "Sammy, I think you're a princess!"

She then shared, "My favorite princess is Kate Middleton, but she's a duchess. She's a princess too, right? I'll go with Kate Middleton."

Hathaway explained her reason for picking Prince George's mama as her favorite royal, saying, "I think she's lovely. She makes me very happy and that royal wedding just could not be beat."

The Oscar winner also stopped by Live! With Kelly & Michael to discuss the sequel to her hit children's film.

She also revealed that she brought something special with her to this year's Academy Awards: tequila!

"This year, I decided to do something a little different and I got a perfect purse-size flask, which I put tequila in," the 31-year-old admitted. "It was really nice and it's a great icebreaker!"

Hathaway has been traipsing around the globe to promote Rio 2 and was most recently in Miami at the inaugural Miami Walk of Fame event.

Hathaway, who provides the voice of Jewel the parrot in the movie, didn't flinch as she was greeted by several exotic animals during the big bash.

Between the white anteater and a blue parrot, Hathaway was all smiles and clearly not ruffled by her new furry (and feathery) friends!
