Anne Hathaway is on the September cover of InStyle, looking gorgeous in red, and inside the issue she talks about how unfairly she’s been treated by the media in the past couple of years. The Oscar winner shares, “For a very long time I felt I was being hunted, and it made me very unhappy.” She continues, “There was a stretch of my life when I wasn’t comfortable being myself. I didn’t think I was good enough. So I pretended to be someone I wasn’t. To be a person in the spotlight, I pretended to be someone who could be in the spotlight. I’m so over that now. I just try to be my best self all the time, with some notable late-night lapses.”
The Intern star has realized that she can’t let people drag her down. “In the past few years I’ve been working on changing the script inside my head. Life’s too short to be anyone but yourself. Let the chips fall where they may…There is a certain type of media that trades on desperation and will paint someone with that filter if it will make them money, whether the story is true or not.” Most recently, Anne had a brilliant comeback to Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck diss when she Instagrammed a movie ticket stub, saying, “Dear @AmySchumer, Don’t pretend like when you win your Oscar—which you could for your brilliant and refreshing writing and/or acting in @TrainwreckMovie—you won’t tote it around to every Oscar party you go to. Way to slay, Annie.”
We’re glad to see that she’s not letting the haters stop her from doing her thing anymore.
