Oscar Winner Anne Hathaway Answers Critics
(LOS ANGELES) — Anne Hathaway may have won the approval of the Academy on Oscar night with her supporting actress win, but so-called “Hathahaters” are criticizing the star’s authenticity.
In what was seen as a stereotypical Oscar win moment, Hathaway cried, “It came true!” as she accepted her award on Sunday. Us Weekly reports that she rehearsed her speech a lot after backlash over her Golden Globe, SAG and BAFTA acceptance speeches.
At the Golden Globe Awards for instance, the Les Miserables star called her award “a weapon of self-doubt.”
Hathaway addressed the jokes that were made about her emotional speeches. She told Us Weekly, “It does get to me. But you have to remember in life that there’s a positive to every negative and a negative to every positive.”
She tried to win over the haters in her Oscar speech, but expressed that even with all of the criticism, “I live my life with love. I live my life with compassion. I live my life hoping the best for absolutely everyone, no matter how they feel about me. And when you live that way, it’s amazing how beautiful every day can be.”
