Before she became an Oscar winner, actress Anne Hathaway was on the receiving end of criticism regarding her appearances at award shows.
Hathaway, who won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress Sunday for her performance in Les Miserables, addressed the criticism. "It does get to me," the actress, 30, said. "But you have to remember in life that there's a positive to every negative and a negative to every positive.”
Many have said that, at many of this year's awards ceremonies in which the actress won for her role as Fantine, Hathaway displayed a false sense of earnestness.
But she stated that she does not allow criticism to change how she lives her life.
"I live my life with love," Hathaway said. "I live my life with compassion. I live my life hoping the best for absolutely everyone, no matter how they feel about me. And when you live that way, it's amazing how beautiful every day can be."
Us Weekly reported that Hathaway practiced her acceptance speech to be more likable.
"She was very aware that she had been the butt of everyone's jokes," a source said.
Hathaway has also been criticized for the dress she wore to Sunday's ceremony. The pale pink Prada dress she wore raised eyebrows, but she later told People that it was not her first choice.
"It came to my attention late Saturday night that there would be a dress worn to the Oscars that is remarkably similar to the Valentino I had intended to wear, and so I decided it was best for all involved to change my plans," she said.
