From Criticism to Redemption: Anne Hathaway’s Journey in the #MeToo and #OscarsSoWhite Era

How Anne Hathaway fell out of favor with the world

Anne Hathaway faced an onslaught of criticism during the press tour for her new film Mothers’ Instinct about ten years ago. Despite the barrage of hostility, both online and offline, she reflects on how Hollywood was in a precarious state with movements like #MeToo and #OscarsSoWhite gaining traction. 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, which led her to miss out on job opportunities.

Looking back, Hathaway opened up about how her online persona had become toxic and how it affected her career. 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.
