The Devil Wears Prada star has been a regular on the red carpet in recent weeks as she attends prizegivings and events in support of her movie musical Les Miserables.
Her role in the film won her a Screen Actors Guild Award on Sunday as well as a Golden Globe trophy and a nomination at the upcoming Oscars.
However, Hathaway admitted that she feels slightly uncomfortable when attending the awards shows because she hasn't got another job lined up.
She told Access Hollywood: "I had a film lined up that we'd taken a breath on, so I'm unemployed. It's such a funny experience to sort of be here and be in some ways at the pinnacle of what you can achieve as an actor, but also know that you don't have a job. That is the life of an actor!"
Hathaway is now planning to spend her time off at home with her new husband Adam Shulman, who she married in September.
She added: "I'll be hosting lots of dinners at my house. We're nesting, playing with my dog - we're chilling."
