The One Director Who Hired Anne Hathaway When Everyone Seemed To Hate Her


The Anne Hathaway backlash coalesced prior to her winning the Oscar for “Les Miserables,” but ramped up afterward. Twitter was quick to ridicule her acceptance speech at the Academy Awards for supposedly being histrionic and cementing her reputation for radiating a certain unctuous theater kid energy. Among the #hathahaters was Howard Stern, who happily stated his opinion that the actor came across as “so affected” and “actressy,” adding that it was “just fun to sort of hate her.”

At this stage, as the New York Times noted in 2013, the “Hathahating” had “moved beyond garden-variety snarkiness […] and become a meme with unlikely stickiness.” That stickiness affected the actor’s reputation not only in the warped, distorted version of reality known as the Twittersphere but in the real world, too. As Hathaway told Vanity Fair in a new 2024 profile, “A lot of people wouldn’t give me roles because they were so concerned about how toxic my identity had become online.”

According to the “Princess Diaries” star, however, she was embraced by none other than her “Dark Knight Rises” director Christopher Nolan, who rather than seeing through the hate for Hathway, seemed entirely unconcerned and perhaps even unaware of it. The actor continued, “I had an angel in Christopher Nolan, who did not care about that and gave me one of the most beautiful roles I’ve had in one of the best films that I’ve been a part of.”

That role was NASA scientist Dr. Amelia Brand in the 2014 sci-fi epic “Interstellar” — a film notable for being one of Nolan’s most heartfelt projects and championing love as not only an important emotion but as an impetus for technological progression and human evolution. That’s not insignificant in relation to the hate Hathaway was enduring at the time.
