Upon hearing about all of the hate directed toward Anne Hathaway for her Oscars speech, dress, and whatever else, Anderson cooper decided to speak up for her on his show Thursday.
Hathaway is well aware of the criticism, stating, "It does get to me. But you have to remember in life that there's a positive to every negative and a negative to every positive.”
Cooper said on his show, "In our morning meeting today, we were talking about this and the level of hatred people have towards Anne Hathaway; I had no idea. She seems like a perfectly lovely person. I don't understand. She's incredibly talented, she seems like a lovely person, I think she's been through a lot. People have all these judgments about her; they don't know what she's really like . . . It upset me," reports US Weekly.
The talk show host continued in response to a co-hosts remark about Hathaway's speech being "terrible," "She got up there, she made eye contact, she remembered people's names without reading it. I mean, give her a break."
Cooper finished by saying that although he does not personally know the actress, he still feels for her and does not understand where all the hatred is coming from.
"I've got no dog in this hunt. I don't know Anne Hathaway. It just seems so completely unfair to me. I had no idea this whole hatred existed, I feel like I've just woken up and realized the entire universe is attacking her and I feel bad for her and I am defending her."
