Anne Hathaway breaks her silence on 'everyone' hating her: 'I think it’s weird...it comes up in every interview I do'
Anne Hathaway said she finds it "weird" that she's considered one of the most hated people on the internet.
It all goes back to her Oscar campaign back in 2013 for her role in Les Miserables, through a stream of cheesy speeches and teary eyed interviews, she has suffered the wrath of critics (both professional and armchair) ever since.
"I think it’s weird that it continues to be talked about a little bit," she told Jezebel.
"I understand in the context of this movie, why it should be brought up. But it comes up in every interview I do, just about. I am... not eager, but I am ready for the conversation to move to a place beyond it. I don’t have to contextualize all of my stories, all of my experiences through that time. I’m ready for it to be implied, not overtly stated.
"But I’m also not in the driver’s seat of this interview. But I do appreciate the things that you say. That’s a kind way of interpreting it."
Hathaway said she didn't have a "rhino skin" about criticism, but understands that people will say what they want to say and she doesn't want the focus to be on people who dislike her.
"What the world feels about me has nothing to do with me. How other people treat me has nothing to do with me. But if anything that anybody said resonated with me as something I’d like to work on for myself, I took it in like that.
"And to that extent, I feel like I got to shortcut a lot of my growth. To that extent, even though I wouldn’t have chosen to go through it, I still found a way to be grateful to it."
