Ever since her infamous Oscar speech, mocking Anne Hathaway has been something of a hobby for the snarkier corners of the internet. In fact, there's a term for it: Hatha-hating.
The actress is acutely aware that portions of society have completely weird and unfounded issues with her (opens in new tab), and apparently she's asked about it during almost every interview—and said as much during a chat with Jezebel (opens in new tab).
"I think it's weird that it continues to be talked about a little bit," she said. "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."
Hathaway explained that reading less-than-kind articles about herself used to upset her, but she's learned to move on. "I would just be reading about something totally unrelated to me and [see] a headline about me and how much your site dislikes me or whoever was writing it dislikes me would come up. That would catch me off-guard. Now, it's not that I've gotten a rhino skin to it, but I sort of see all of that for what it is."
She continues, "How 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."
In other words, she twirled on her haters.
