From Criticism to Triumph: Anne Hathaway Reflects on Her Tumultuous Journey in Hollywood

How Anne Hathaway fell out of favor with the world

Actress Anne Hathaway faced a whirlwind of criticism during the press tour for her new film Mothers’ Instinct a decade ago. Despite her flawless performance, she was bombarded with accusations that were both baseless and unfair. Looking back, Hathaway reflects on the harsh treatment she received and how it derailed her career in the 2010s.

Hollywood was going through a tumultuous period during that time, with movements like #MeToo and #OscarsSoWhite gaining momentum. Hathaway found herself caught in the crossfire as she was labeled as either too enthusiastic, earnest, and humble or inauthentic, entitled, and insincere. Her dual roles in Les Misérables and lighter films like Valentine’s Day and Bride Wars made her an easy target for critics who felt she didn’t fit into any particular category.

The negative publicity took a toll on Hathaway’s online persona, which became toxic and affected her career negatively. Despite this, she credits Christopher Nolan for being supportive during a low point in her career by casting her in Interstellar. Nolan saw past the negative press surrounding her and believed in her talent, which gave Hathaway the confidence to continue pursuing her passion for acting.
