Oscar nominee and bird flipper to the paparazzi, Anne Hathaway - and her family - bid a fond adieu to the Catholic church over its prehistoric views on lesbians and gays, she tells GQ - in so many words.

The Rachel Getting Married star broke from with religion of her upbringing when her big brother came out of the closet. "The whole family converted to Episcopalianism after my elder brother came out," she said. "Why should I support an organization that has a limited view of my beloved brother?"

Although, Hathaway who was one of a few celebrities to sport a "White Knot" for marriage equality at last year's Tony Awards and who famously costarred in Hollywood's biggest gay flick to date, Brokeback Mountain, said that the Episcopal church isn't perfect for her either. "So I'm... nothing (no denomination)," she said,  "Fuck it, I'm forming. I'm a work in progress."
