Anne Hathaway has revealed that she practiced her acceptance speech before she picked up her Best Supporting Actress award at the Oscars on Sunday.
The actress also admitted that the negative reception she has received after her various emotional speeches at award shows have taken their toll on her.
The Les Miserables star managed to hold back her tears whilst on stage to collect her award for her role as the prostitue Fantine in Tom Hooper’s film, but she ultimately broke down backstage whilst in front of the press.
A journalist asked her what she meant when saying, “it came true,” during her speech, to which she responded through tears, “I had a dream … and it came true. And it can happen and it’s wonderful.”
An insider revealed that she had worked on her speech after realising she had been criticised for her tearful performances at various festivals.
A source told UsMagazine.com, “She was very aware that she had been the butt of everyone’s jokes.”
In February, Hathaway was made fun of across the world after her acceptance speech at the BAFTA awards, where she thanked her hair and make-up artist and even Les Miserables author Victor Hugo.
Those who have been making jokes at the expense of the actress have labelled “Hatha-haters.” Do you find Anne Hathaway annoying? Do you think that she deserved her Academy Award?
