Oscar Speeches: Hathaway, Anne–Supporting Actress, Les Miserable

Anne Hathaway responded to those who criticized her 2013 best supporting actress acceptance speech on Instagram before the 2018 Oscar ceremony.

The actress won the award for her portrayal of Fantine in Tom Hooper’s film adaption of the musical “Les Miserables.”

After her win, some expressed disdain for previous comments she made about playing Fantine in which she spoke about having to lose weight for the role and crying while watching her own performance.

“A bunch of corny haters were getting lots of attention from the media for being haters but you know what? It was still the best,” Hathaway wrote in her post.

She recalled her experience that night: “I had to change my dress last minute and so it looked like my nipples were hard, I had full blown laryngitis and had to sing.”
