Anderson Cooper Defends Anne Hathaway
Anderson Cooper defends Anne Hathaway from the hate that she is getting from the way she handles her interviews to how she says her acceptance speeches. Hello Ricky Lo interview and her correcting the spelling of her name spelled as Ann when it should be Anne at the Critics’ Choice Awards. Anderson Cooper thinks Anne Hathaway deserves a break. Anderson Cooper said:
“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.
She got up there, she made eye contact, she remembered people’s names without reading it. I mean, give her a break. We think what people are getting at is the perceived sincerity of it all, that they feel like she’s still acting when she takes to the podium, which is still not a justification.
The amount of pressure she must feel knowing all these people hate her—give her a break; she seems like a lovely young person. Again, people form all these opinions on people based on nothing. You have no actual evidence. 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. It’s bullying, through and through. Anne has never insulted anyone, or made awful comments!”
