Anne Hathaway reflects on the hate she received online after her Wretched Oscar won nearly a decade ago. Hathaway, whose career began when she was just 19, became one of America’s darlings after her appearances in young adult films including The Diary of a Princess (his first feature film) and its sequel The Princess Diaries 2: The Royal Engagementas well as those of 2004 Ella, enchanted. Soon after, she began appearing in buzzy adult dramas – which eventually led to her being nominated for her first Oscar in 2008. Rachel is getting married. She also played a young Jane Austen in Become Joan and starred in Oscar-nominated films Brokeback Mountain and The devil wears Prada.
Her second Oscar nomination and first win came when she played Fantine in Tom Hooper’s 2012 film Wretched based on the 1985 West End musical adaptation of Victor Hugo’s 1862 novel of the same name. Fantine is a meaty tragic role performing the iconic “I Dreamed a Dream” number, and Hathaway’s committed performance was heightened by the highly publicized fact that all of the film’s musical performances were captured live on set rather than pre-recorded in order. to capture the pure emotion of the songs. However, after winning Best Supporting Actress at the 85th Academy Awards, Hathway began to receive hate online from people who perceived the The dark knight rises the actress as being too serious, too needy to be loved, and showing too much energy for high schoolers, among many other criticisms.
Hathaway recently appeared at a Women in Hollywood event hosted by She, who posted a transcript of his speech on his website. She described the event as “an opportunity to look at the language of hate from a new angle“, learning that she shouldn’t leave these kinds of comments in her heart, because the internet was amplifying the things she was already saying to herself. She said she hopes that people who write these kinds of comments and make judgments on people simply for existing”give yourself a chance to relearn love.” Read his full quote below:
Ten years ago, I had the opportunity to examine the language of hate from a new angle. For context – it was a language I used with myself since I was 7 years old. And when your self-inflicted pain is suddenly somehow amplified to, say, the full volume of the internet… That’s one thing.
[Because of this, I realized] I had no desire to have anything to do with this energy line. I would not create any more art from this place. I wouldn’t hold a place for him anymore, I wouldn’t live in his fear anymore, I wouldn’t speak his language anymore for no reason. To anyone. Me included.
There is a difference between existence and behavior. You can judge the behavior. You can forgive a behavior or not. But you have no right to judge – and especially not to hate – someone for their existence. And if you do, you’re not where it is.
The good news about learning hate is that whoever learns it can learn. There is a brain there. I hope they give themselves a chance to relearn love.
Why did people even hate Anne Hathaway? !
It’s a sad truth about the industry that fame comes in cycles. When the public becomes obsessed with lifting a brand new star, the time will more or less inevitably come when it will be perceived as overstaying its welcome, as people begin to become too familiar with what the star brings to the table. Just as Hathaway went live, two new stars were rising that would soon go through the same cycle: Perfectis Anna Kendrick and The hunger Games‘Jennifer Lawrence.
at Hathaway Wretched the win was ill-timed, coming just as his pop culture saturation was beginning to hit the bottom end of that cycle. As the cycle frequently turns again to find the beloved star, it was clearly an upsetting experience for Hathaway at the time. Hopefully, the more people who have experienced this kind of hate online talk about it with a fresh perspective like she did, the more long-term change can be implemented.
