The 31-year-old, who has been holidaying on the island of Oahu with her husband Adam Shulman for several days, hurt herself after she got into difficulty in a strong rip current close to the beach.
Hathaway started screaming for help and a nearby surfer rushed to assist her back to safety, reports radaronline.com.
The eyewitnesses report that the Oscar-winner's husband was on the beach at the time and rushed with a first-aid kit as she was brought ashore. She was distressed as she came out of the water with a few minor wounds on her foot.
