Anne Hathaway's Best Supporting Actress acceptance speech at the Academy Awards for "Les Miserables" was more direct, poignant, and restrained compared to her bubbly and boisterous speeches at the BAFTAs, SAG awards, and Golden Globes. And she did this on purpose.
According to Perez Hilton, Anne rehearsed her Oscars speech several times in order to not sound exasperated and over-the-top.
A source told PerezHilton.com, "She was very aware that she had been the butt of everyone's jokes."
With Hathaway's latest acceptance, she kept it short, sweet, and appreciative. She started her speech smiling and saying, "It came true," as she looked down at her Oscar with apparent disbelief. She then went into a long thank you list, naming countless people on her team.
The actress donned a sleek baby pink Prada dress to the awards ceremony. According to ABC, Hathaway swapped out her planned Valentino gown for the perky Prada at the last minute.
“I didn’t know what I was wearing until about three hours ago but I really like it,” she said. “This is the one that spoke to me in the end.”
She also called her dress, "business in front, party in the back."
