5. Anne Hathaway commented on the internet’s hatred of her during a recent interview
Articles that would often “hate” Anne Hathaway, or describe why everyone hated her were often found around the internet in 2013, around the time she played Fantine in “Les Miserables.”
While talking to Jezebel, Hathaway said:
“I think it’s weird that it continues to be talked about a little bit…I understand in the context of why it should be brought up.”
[Because in her new movie ‘Colossal,’ in which she plays an out-of-work blogger],
“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.”
Hathaway said she did find a positive side from the experience, saying:
“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.”
