Skip to comments.The Anne Hathaway Hatred Is Out of Control
Posted on 04/01/2013 10:12:11 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Is it her face? Her personality? Is she too perfect? Everyone wants to know why we hate Anne Hathaway. We want to know why they care so much.
Last time Anne Hathaway gave an acceptance speech after she won the best-supporting-actress Oscar for her performance in Les Misérables. Youd think she committed mass murder.
What began as the cult of Hathahaters two months ago has simmered, bubbled over, and formed a zeitgeist-seizing, rage-fueled movement against the actress, peaking with a series of think pieces examining what Hathaway has done to trigger such a response. As if its some major social or political question that must be answeredlike how to prevent the sequester or who should be the next popethese essays explore every facet of Annes very Anne-ness in an attempt to get to the root of the problem.
People are stronger in their convictions on the issue than they are on most platforms that determine presidential elections. Now a hatred has arisen thats typically reserved for celebrities who go on anti-Semitic rants (hello, Mr. Gibson) or hit their girlfriends (bonjour, Mr. Brown). Hathaway, by comparison, gave some speeches that were kind of annoying. Forget media frenzy. Its a media pile-on, and its out of control.
So what are we supposed to think about her?
Shes got this theater-kid thing where she adopts the mood of every situation shes in ... but wildly overcompensates every time, writes The Atlantic Wires Richard Lawson. CNN quotes an oratory expert who tells us that Hathaways just one of the people who just doesnt come off as sincere. The New Yorkers Sasha Weiss posits that its because the actress appears too happy.

Salon brings in the scientists, who tell us we hate her because of her face. When times are good, we prefer actresses with rounder faces, psychology professor Terry Pettijohn says. They convey these ideas of fun and youth. But Hathaways face is bony and slender! As the economy improves, Hathawaywhose peak of fame, post-boyfriend, preOscar hosting, came amid the 2008 crashmay just be a reminder of bad times. Science.
After a report came out that the star rehearsed her Oscar speech to sound less annoying, Rich Juzwiak at Gawker wrote: It creates a new reason to be mad at Anne Hathaway. Its one thing if shes just being herself; its another if shes trying to be likable and failing.
Over at The Cut, Ann Friedman examines what we perceive to be Hathaways most egregious crime: shes not Jennifer Lawrence.
The culturewide attack on the Hathaway is utterly bizarreexcept that it isnt. It is the rawest example yet of our 2013, Twitter-loving, insta-pundit, mountain-out-of-a-molehill media culture. Its not that we judge stars more than we used to. Its that we now have the platform to do it in real time and expect those being judged to care enough to respond and take action, again in real time.
Anne gets some undeserved female hatred because she bedded me, and that made a lot of ladies jealous.
Who cares? More bread and circuses while the barbarians continue their assault on America.
I think she’s absolutely, drop-dead gorgeous . . . even though she’s more than likely a libtard Hollyweirdo. She has the most incredible eyes and skin.
Yeah - this reminds me of the Great Nothing from ‘The Neverending Story’. It just keeps eating the universe.
Anne - Grow your hair back. The “boyish” look does not suit you. Also, do something about the nose. Right now, you looking like the Joker’s daughter.
Far and away the best of the recent Catwomen.
probably her political views.
also her princess bride co-star’s claims of “a relationship.”
also her terrible acting mucking up movies which could have been perfomred better by someone else.
LOL! And then your alarm clock went off and the dream was over.
I guess I’m just showing how far out of the popular culture loop I am by acknowledging that I have no clue who Ann Hathaway is.
Hathaway has been enormously successful for no apparent reason. End of story.
She is very skinny
Sally Fields and Cuba Gooding Jr. got a taste of the same mockery and eye rolling with their over the top acceptance speeches.
her vs the model?
seriously? that is not a contest.
DC Comics suits have no clue about comics or their stories. They just want PC. I suspect in this story, the casting couch is alive and well.
Who cares? More bread and circuses while the barbarians continue their assault on America.
p.s.--while i like her with long hair, i think she wears the pixie cut well... most cannot...
for Anne, the hatred began before the acceptance speeches...
I’ve said to so many people, ‘Would you like some bread with your circuses?’, and they just look at me like, ‘What are you talking about?’
LASIK surgery. Look into it.
well... i dunno who hates her or why.. i wouldn’t throw her out...for a few weeks anyway...
Those lips that Love’s own hand did make
Breathed forth the sound that said ‘I hate’
To me that languish’d for her sake;
But when she saw my woeful state
Straight in her heart did mercy come,
Chiding that tongue that ever sweet
Was used in giving gentle doom,
And taught it thus anew to greet:
‘I hate’ she alter’d with an end,
That follow’d it as gentle day
Doth follow night, who like a fiend
From heaven to hell is flown away;
‘I hate’ from hate away she threw,
And saved my life, saying ‘not you.’
Last month was very exciting because Hollywood actually released a film that did not feature Freeman! And this sick addiction to casting him as a god, a president or a genius is truly hurl-inducing.
Hate Morgan Freeman NOW! Be in the vanguard of this new movement!
The older I get, the more out of touch with all these trendy things and people. I just cling to guns and all..........
You've got to be kidding. She's not even a good caliber of plain looking. Ugly face. Maybe an average actress.
Then you must think that Meryl Streep and Chelsea Clinton are gorgeous. Different tastes, I guesc!
Hathaway is a huge libtard..she supported the Occupy Bowel Movement freaks
This is the trick that walked with the WS occupy crowd with a sign that said ‘Blackboards not bullets’.
She is a multimillionaire 1%-er who smugly considers herself in the 99%. Also, see her exboyfriend- the conman.
I wouldn’t be her for all the money in the world. There is something about the way she carries herself that makes her very unattractive and unlikeable.
Here’s one reason why the hatred is warranted:
In 2004, Hathaway began a romantic relationship with Italian real estate developer Raffaello Follieri, during which she participated in the development of the charitable Follieri Foundation, as a donor and as a member of its board of directors until 2007. The Manhattan-based foundation, established in 2003, focused on efforts such as providing vaccinations for children in Third World countries. In June 2008, it was investigated by the IRS, for failure to file required nonprofit information forms. Citing concern that this investigation and other legal issues in which Follieri was involved could hurt her acting career, Hathaway ended their relationship in mid-June, 2008.

Follieri was arrested on June 24, 2008, on charges of defrauding investors out of millions of dollars in a scheme in which Follieri posed as the Vatican’s point man on real-estate investing. It was reported that the FBI confiscated Hathaway’s private journals from Follieri’s New York City apartment as part of their ongoing investigation into Follieri’s activities; however, Hathaway was not charged with any crime. On October 23, 2008, after earlier pleading guilty, Follieri was sentenced to four and a half years in prison.
She was awesome in Les Miserables...her “I Dreamed a Dream” was full of passion, angst, and weakness—rarely do you see someone so into character for a musical...
Amazing how 20 seconds can change things.
I'm not surprised . . . happens to a lot of these young people who are ridiculously wealthy, and then who pretend that they're something because they have access to things the average working slob will never have.
However, I consider her fascinating to look at . . . repulsive to listen to.
I’ll have to disagree. It really took off after her Broadcast Film Critics Association Awards acceptance speech. And it grew with every acceptance speech after that one, because all her speeches were basically the same; over emotional.
The second they showed her on TV attending one of those Occupy Movement rallies I didn’t give a crap about her anymore. The second these Hollywood liberal freaks decide to go full activist is when I boycott their movies and everything else they appear in. If they want to be liberal, fine, be liberal, but trashing those who have earned wealth or trashing half the country is where I draw the line. Look at the movies that have bombed recently, Admission with Tina Fey, total BOMB, The Burt Wonderstone movie with that flaming idiot Jim Carrey, another bomb..notice a theme here
RE: On October 23, 2008, after earlier pleading guilty, Follieri was sentenced to four and a half years in prison
He was released on May 25, 2012, from a federal prison in Pennsylvania and immediately deported to his native Italy, where crooks like Billionaire Silvio Berlusconi continue to be taken seriously by the voters.
NotYourAverageDhimmi for the win.........YES!
Hathaway broke up with Follieri after she discovered the truth about his business. After he was released from prison, Follieri said he had no interest in clearing his name. But it now appears that Hathaway’s ex has had a change of heart.
“He misses America, and when he gets enough money he wants to lobby for a presidential pardon,” a source told The New York Post. The businessman is allegedly attempting to buy an “energy company in Switzerland” according to the source, but is still having difficulties.
Despite his hardships, Follieri said last year that he was happy for Hathaway and her engagement to Adam Schulman.
Man, I love Anne Hathaway.
I don’t like he because of the hatchet job she did on Agent 99’s character in Get Smart.
Anne wishes she was Jennifer Lawrence. Jennifer as Mystique slaughtered Catwoman. And Katniss Everdeen is great. Plus, Jennifer just won best lead actress at the Oscars.
Anne comes off as snotty and insincere. Jennifer Lawrence is popular for being more real. Anne is having a conniption fit with a co star wearing a similar dress to the Oscars, and Jennifer Lawrence is talking about how she is klutz who hates to exercise. Anne comes off as very fake.
I think you’re smoking model airplane glue while huffing Ortho® wasp/hornet killer, but you’re entitled to your opinions.
Go see “Olympus has fallen”. Morgan plays the speaker of the house who is temporarily sworn in, and he has the president, played by Aaron Eckhardt telling him “Do not negotiate with terrorists!” And Freeman proceeds to buckle like a belt and to make the worst choices possible.
Where are the pics from the pre-fame porno phase of her career? (That’s the bread for our circuses!)
Sally Fields could fly and look cute even in close ups in that flying Numb thing. Anne may hath a way but she didn’t seem too happy in that Less Miserable movie. Probably because of everyone singing instead of just saying right out what’s bothering them.
