Anne Hathaway claims that after winning the Oscar, the audience didn’t really like her, to the point where studios avoided her until Christopher Nolan (again) knocked on their door.

The actress spoke candidly with Vanity Fair about the backlash she faced in the early 2010s, which peaked in 2013 when she accepted a statuette for her performance in “Les Misérables” and delivered an emotional (but, for some, embarrassing) acceptance speech.

When she and James Franco co-hosted the Oscars in 2011, the phenomena that came to be known as “Hathahate” had already been brewing for a few years. People were already criticizing her for being a little too sincere, awkward and “annoying.”

Well, Anne Hathaway now claims that, despite being an Oscar winner, she was well aware of the ridicule that was going on at the time, and it appears that it was hurting her career.

Hathaway says, “A lot of people wouldn’t give me roles because they were so concerned about how toxic my identity had become online. I had an angel in Christopher Nolan, who did not care about that and gave me one of the most beautiful roles I’ve had in one of the best films that I’ve been a part of.” She is obviously referencing to CN’s massive hit from 2014, “Interstellar.”

She continues, “I don’t know if he knew that he was backing me at the time, but it had that effect. And my career did not lose momentum the way it could have if he hadn’t backed me.”

As everyone is aware, Hathaway and Nolan were already acquainted when he cast her in “The Dark Knight Rises,” his third Batman film. However, it seems that Nolan’s decision to give her another chance coincided with Hathaway’s career ascent.

Anne advises that even though everyone despises you, you must stay brave and true to yourself in order to weather the hate storm, whether it was then or is now.

It’s amazing to learn that Anne, one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, was once shunned for a short while. Despite this, she claims to have gone through a difficult period.

It merely demonstrates that, for better or ill, people are perceptive and that appearances matter.
