Anne Hathaway has responded to criticism that claims ‘everyone’ hates her.
The actress won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Les Miserables back in 2013, however, her award didn’t exactly win over the public as she’s suffered the wrath of critics and trolls online ever since.
Despite years passing, the New York native has admitted that she still gets asked why people hate her so much.
“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,” she explained.
Anne also admitted that although she doesn’t have “rhino skin” when it comes to criticism, she understands that people are totally entitled to their opinions – because it has nothing to do with 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,” she said.
Regrets: Anne wishes that she hadn’t posted this picture on her son | INSTAGRAM
The award-winning actress also opened up about how she regrets posting a picture of her son on Instagram, and admitted that she felt like she had “broken some kind of a seal in inviting people into my life”.
“I might be inviting some criticism by mentioning this, but when have I ever not invited criticism? When has any public figure ever not?” she laughed.
“But I had never posted a photo of my son, and I decided to post a shot of the back of his head, and almost as soon as I’d done it, I wished that I hadn’t.
“I felt like I had broken some kind of a seal in inviting people into my life. And even though I felt as though I had done it in as protective a way as I could, even though it was a moment I was incredibly proud of, I don’t know that I’ll ever do it again.
“I’m a big believer that you gotta mess things up sometimes to really see them properly, so if I made a mistake or I messed up, I know how I feel about it much better now.
“Instagram, when I first started, it was so much fun. And it was a great way to be silly and kind of do things off the cuff. And now, because of the time we live in, I think words and pictures are carrying a much greater weight. Or, much less depending on how you engage with it,” she added.
