Anne Hathaway Wasn't Happy When She Won Oscar: 'I Got Called Out On It Big Time'
Anne Hathaway is opening up about a hard time in her life, when she won the Oscar for Les Miserables.
“I felt very uncomfortable,” the 33-year-old actress told The Guardian. “I kind of lost my mind doing that movie and it hadn’t come back yet. Then I had to stand up in front of people and feel something I don’t feel which is uncomplicated happiness. It’s an obvious thing, you win an Oscar and you’re supposed to be happy. I didn’t feel that way. I felt wrong that I was standing there in a gown that cost more than some people are going to see in their lifetime, and winning an award for portraying pain that still felt very much a part of our collective experience as human beings. I tried to pretend that I was happy and I got called out on it, big time. That’s the truth and that’s what happened. It sucks. But what you learn from it is that you only feel like you can die from embarrassment, you don’t actually die.”
Anne won the Oscar back in 2013 for her role as Fantine in Les Miserables.
