The Les Miserables actress has been collecting gongs for her portrayal of Fantine but has faced a backlash online, with people mocking her earnest speeches.

"It does get to me," Anne was quoted as saying by Us Weekly. "But you have to remember in life that there's a positive to every negative and a negative to every positive."

She went on: "The miracle of the universe is that, as far as they know, there's 51 per cent matter versus 49 per cent anti-matter - things tip in the scale of the positive. So that is what I focus on."

At the weekend Anne added a best supporting actress Oscar to her haul, and the mag claims she worked hard on her speech so it would go better with viewers.

A source said: "She was very aware that she had been the butt of everyone's jokes."

Anne, 30, has won several accolades for Les Miserables, including the Academy Award, a Golden Globe and a Bafta.
