How Anne Hathaway fell out of favor with the world

From Criticism to Courage: Anne Hathaway Reflects on Her 2010s Struggles and How They Helped Shape Her

Anne Hathaway faced an onslaught of criticism during the press tour for her new film Mothers’ Instinct about ten years ago. Despite being unable to find flaws in her, people were quick to invent their own just to be cautious. Looking back, she reflects on the barrage of hostility, both online and offline, that derailed her career in the 2010s. During that time, Hollywood was in a precarious state with movements like #MeToo and #OscarsSoWhite gaining traction. Hathaway 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. She was criticized for being both an Oscar-winning star in Les Misérables and a millennial version of Julia Roberts in lighter films like Valentine’s Day and Bride Wars.

The negative publicity took a toll on Hathaway’s online persona, which she said became toxic. Despite this, 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. In recent years, Hathaway has become more open about how the criticism affected her mentally and emotionally. She has spoken out about how it led to anxiety and depression before she decided to take a break from acting to focus on self-care and personal growth.
