Anne Hathaway Defends Jennifer Lawrence for Calling Out Golden Globes Reporter

Anne Hathaway is not happy that people got upset with Jennifer Lawrence about a press room video from the 2016 Golden Globes.

The 33-year-old actress took to Facebook to explain how her pal was just joking when she told a reporter to put his phone away.

“Dear the Internet, It’s become pretty clear that the Jennifer Lawrence ‘scolding’ was taken out of context and that she was dryly joking with a journalist who was indeed using his phone to take photos of her,” Anne wrote.

She continued, “Let’s not continue the sad but common practice of building people – especially women- up just to viciously tear them down when we perceive them to have misstepped. Jennifer is a beautiful, talented, wildly successful, popular, FOUR TIME OSCAR NOMINATED young woman. Please let us not punish her for these things. Sincerely, A J-Law fan #‎supportstrongwomen‬ ‪#‎imwithher‬ ‪#‎whycantwegiveloveonemorechance‬.”

    This is what happens when you become overexposed. At some point or another, this to shall pass.

  • Anna

    I guess being rude is now being consider a “joke”. RME

  • Jay

    Yay!!! Love this!!!

  • tia maria

    If any other actress did what Lawrence did, they would be called rude etc so why should Lawrence get a pass?

  • 777

    Actually no, if any other actress would’ve done it she would’ve gotten praises from the internet.

  • 777

    I’ve seen tweets from a reporter who was there supporting what Anne said, the reporter who was “scolded” by Jennifer didn’t use his phone to translate his question, he used it to get pics and videos. Why is it fine for reporters to act however they want with celebrities but when the celebs dare respond they’re rude?

  • tia maria

    no they wouldn’t, people would probably be a lot more harsh towards them. Lawrence can do no wrong in the eyes of many people.

  • 777

    That’s not true. Go watch old articles here, showing actresses like Cate Blanchett scolding reporters for asking them questions they didn’t like. People here loved it and called her a goddess (I agree, Cate is a goddess), but as soon as Jennifer does something, everyone jumps to scold her.

  • Nika

    taking pics or video is the part of his job. you never know.

  • 777

    Apparently he was the only reporter doing it.

  • Christian

    it was a joke the same way that an insult can be a joke. that finger wag made me sick and the “we’re at the golden globes” thing was very condescending. this is what happens when everyone puts you on a pedestal, you start believing you’re a god

  • piddler

    Just became a fan of Anne. Pretending to read a question off his phone, and using it to take a picture, a real pervert.

  • Nerdville

    so true.

    bye bertha

  • I am Evelyn Salt

    I really don’t understand why JLaw is such a media darling. I have a feeling she was a mean girl in HS and this kinda proved it.

  • JM D

    what a bunch of pussies…. she wasn’t being rude. if you think that’s rude.. look out. the world is a cruel place. good luck to you.

  • oscarsforrevenant

    Yawn.

  • Penny isafreeloader

    So, is being FOUR TIMES OSCAR NOMINATED a reason enough to get a hall pass and be treated differently? Or does it mean she’s of much more importance than other actors out there? F*** you, and your awards Anne. They don’t mean shit.

  • devvv

    The Taylor Swifts and Jennifer Lawrences of Hollywood get a free pass for being mean girls under the guise of feminism and sticking up for themselves. Everyone else gets a reputation for being snotty.

  • Dee

    Anne hathaway pleeese sit down, as someone who actually likes jen even *I* know what she did was condescending and rude as fuck. the truth is everyone wants to say she relatable cause she loves eating pizza but she can also be super annoying. and she has gotten annoying and CHLOE SEVIGNY HAS CLEARLY ALWAYS KNOWN. And is probably laughing it up somewhere,,,,,

  • DEADP00L

    A piece of metal suddenly means you can behave like a twat I see.

    This is where we are people: a piece of metal with gold plating is what makes you important. And your words so ‘enlightening’ that like a self appointed philosopher… you can speak out of your butthole and people will be in awe of you…

    Not a firefighter, not a teacher, not a protester, not a freedom rider, not a defender of human rights or people willing to DIE for those rights, nor a doctor, you know, actual arteries that keep society alive and going – no.

    What makes you suddenly soooo important is a piece of metal given to you for playing PRETEND for a living.

    Well she is a Hilary Clinton supporter after all… she can hardly be looked upon as an intellectual much less an intelligent woman. Good luck ‘strong women’ with the likes of Anne Hathaway in your corner.

  • lshelton22

    Anne is always so extra. She must be feeling desperate to stay relevant. Newsflash, Anne: we don’t care. Jen Lawrence being called out for being rude to someone is not a desperate issue. In fact, I’m sure she’s used to it by now as she describes herself as rude, blunt and having no filter. Leave it to Hathaway to find an invisible cross on which to strap herself.

  • lshelton22

    IKR? It’s like she’s saying, “how dare you peasants criticize an Oscar winner? she is so much better than you” — which is exactly how this self-important nitwit sees herself. There is a reason no one can stand Anne Hathaway.

  • Magyar Zoltán

    Being four time’s nominated to oscar make it ok for her being disrespectful to someone. Oh it was a joke guess what normal people don’t make fun like this just when you think you are better then anyone else and Jennifer is sure she is better together with her friend Anne.

  • FerCat

    Whoa… that pic. She really was Amy Schumer back then.

  • Nika

    And you know that because you were there right?

  • Amber

    But of course Anne Hathaway takes it upon herself to interject herself into the middle of the situation when she wasn’t even present at the Golden Globes. Kind of like when she interjected herself into the middle of the Occupy Wall Street protests. Anne Hathaway, have several seats.

  • 777

    No, i know that because other reporters talked about it.

  • Nika

    yes, one reporter said he took a video. and guess what??? that’s the part of the job. being a reporter require record, make notes, take pics. I’m her fan but she had no right to be arrogant or rude. The guy did his job and her job is to do movies, promos and so on. She is well payed for it ;)

  • FerCat

    She’s backed by at least 3 major Studios, Sony, Fox and LionsGate plus Weinstein Co.

  • fromanotherplanet

    Sit your azz down somewhere Anne. Goodbye!!

    A woman usually has to be RUDE to men to get her point over to them. They don’t hear soft and polite unless it’s “adorable” and then they tell you how adorable you are for saying that. Anna I hope you learn in time.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    The disrespect is from a faux “journalist” who takes phone pics without asking, and has to read questions because he is not prepared. Give him an F please! Glad Lawrence called him out.Stupid women who take the side of men “for politeness sake.” You wil always hold the rest of us back.You should be our allies instead of our worst enemies. Read Simone de Beauvoir on “other” women who make it so difficult for those of us who want to be free and say what we feel. That most men are dominating and are dopes.

  • Gina

    No Anne, she was rude & you’re kissing butt.

  • 777

    The guy was the only one called out, meaning other reporters who asked her questions didn’t do the same thing. Yes, part of her job is to do interviews, that doesn’t mean she needs to put her head down and shut up instead of standing up for herself. When Cate Blanchett called put a reporter in the middle of an interview because she didn’t like his question all of you guys cheered for it.

  • Anna

    I think you’re one that needs to learn something. You can be strong and assertive without being a rude A-hole like she was.

  • sasha

    this is just you unable to take a joke from a woman, without always thinking of petty and mean motives beside pure fun and joking, being silly and messing around.

    I think also that people have a hard time being comfortable when women are silly to a man.
    A male can light heartedly joke and tease females, but if a female does the same to a male, then people feel awkward for him as if his superior status was to be given special privilege

  • sasha

    people always have this idea that hot women are mean.
    Its called prejudice

  • sasha

    or you cant stand anne cause youre super critical of women and unable to understand a rational point

  • sasha

    unable to give a silly pass to a woman, meanwhile you would have laughed your ass off if sasha baron cohen had done the same

  • sasha

    the truth is if sasha baron cohen had done the same everyone would laugh their ass of; but a woman cant get a silly pass

  • Dee

    Thats your problem. You dont understand the fact that this isnt about “tearing down another woman” this is about NOT giving someone a free pass because shes white or americas sweetheart. Which is exactly what your doing. What she did was disrespectful to someone who doesnt even speak english that well. And she was being her usual sarcastic self and guess what? This time? Shes not getting a free pass. Because it was rude as hell. Theres only so many times shes gonna get away with that… it wasnt silly, it was actually a little mean. Also. Sasha Baron Cohen is an idiot and not funny at all. Go make your judgements elsewhere.

  • George

    At least the reporter was not taking pictures of himself naked with his phone like she does.

  • Christian

    hahaha

  • Nerdville

    bye ugly

  • Jenny from the flop

    yes bye ugly
