From Hostility to Gratitude: Anne Hathaway Reflects on Her Journey in Hollywood Amidst a Toxic Online Environment

How Anne Hathaway fell out of favor with the world

Anne Hathaway reflects on the barrage of hostility she faced during the press tour for her new film Mothers’ Instinct ten years ago. Looking back, she realizes that Hollywood was in a precarious state with movements like #MeToo and #OscarsSoWhite gaining traction. Despite this, she faced vague accusations that varied depending on who you asked. One moment she was deemed too enthusiastic, earnest, and humble, while the next she was labeled as inauthentic, entitled, and insincere.

Hathaway’s online persona became toxic during this time and affected her career negatively. Despite the negative publicity, she credits Christopher Nolan for being supportive during a low point in her career by casting her in Interstellar. She expressed gratitude for his belief in her talent and not being swayed by the negative press surrounding her.
