Anne Hathaway Is Very Aware of Her 'Hathahaters'
Anne Hathaway wants you to know she is very aware of your disdain for her and is hip to the fact that the Internet is not her biggest fan.
For the first time the 30-year-old actress addressed the intense criticism she faced from all those people who liked to pick on her last year over her long and overly-rehearsed award acceptance speeches to her seemingly pretentious quips such as using her Golden Globe award as a “weapon against self doubt.”
Well, all the vitriolic backlash forced the Oscar winner to disappear for a while and find much more low budget/low profile films to take on like Song One about a woman who returns home to be with her injured brother and strikes up a relationship with his favorite musician.
The Les Miz star explained to MTV’s Josh Horowitz at the Sundance Film Festival that the project couldn’t have come at a better time.
"We had been working on the script for almost two years before we actually started shooting. All of the elements came together in that moment," Hathaway said. "I don't want to bring up a sore subject or anything -- I think my publicist is probably like 'No, no no' -- but I had just taken a little bit of a beating from the Internet.
"It was the greatest thing in the world to get to work with my friends and get to go to work every day and bring [director] Kate [Barker-Froyland's] vision to life, which is a vision that I believe in," she added. "I felt like it was really cool. I felt like I had a secret."
