10 Times Mia Thermopolis Knew Our Everyday Struggles

The Princess Diaries is kind of about us, too.

On this day fourteen years ago (14, omg!), the first Princess Diaries film came out and paved the way for Anne Hathaway's very successful career in Hollywood. The actress went on to star in several of this generation's most beloved films and took home a statuette from the Academy Awards for playing Fantine in the big screen adaptation of the musical Les Miserables. Three years might have gone by but we're still in love with Mia Thermopolis's adorable character and the film itself. And why not? Mia totally gets our struggles in high school, even the struggles we still have to this day.

 1  Every single morning, before we leave the house.

Yup, this happens even if we woke up really early and used our special lotion.

 2  During those days when you're feeling ugly.

Repeat this line in your head forever.

 3  On the rare moments your crush says hi to you.

Admit it, you've practiced how to say it to him a hundred times in front of the mirror.

 9  Those times you try to act so cool during school events to impress your crush or catch his attention.

And you end up looking funny. HEY! At least you're funny.

 10  Whenever you're having a bad day and your loved ones remind you who you truly are.

It may be hard to believe what they say, but it does help a little to be around them and get the reminder you need that you will always have someone to come home to. P.S. We're still waiting on our Michael Moscovitz (or Robert Schwartzman, we'll take either).
