Anne Hathaway tries to be more 'likeable'

Feb 26 2013, 2:38pm CST | by

Anne Hathaway practiced her Oscars speech a lot in a bid to more "likeable".

The 'Les Miserables' actress - who won Best Supporting Actress at the 85th Academy Awards on Sunday (02.24.13) - was reportedly very concerned about the public's perception of her after she was criticized for becoming emotional and rambling while accepting accolades at other award ceremonies including the BAFTAs and Golden Globe Awards earlier this month.

A source close to the 30-year-old star told USMagazine.com: "She was very aware that she had been the butt of everyone's jokes," explaining that the actress practiced her acceptance speech a lot to try to be more likeable.

Accepting her award from former Best Supporting Actor winner Christopher Plummer, Anne gushed: "It came through."

After thanking her co-star Hugh Jackman, cast and crew, she paid special tribute to her husband of five months Adam Shulman, saying: "By far and away the greatest moment of my life was when you walked into it."

Anne also performed songs from the musical live alongside the rest of the cast at the ceremony, which celebrated the theme of music in film and also featured performances from Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jennifer Hudson, Dame Shirley Bassey and Adele, as well as a number of other famous faces.

Despite her success, the actress insisted she still considers herself an "underdog" in Hollywood.

She said: "You're always looking for the next job. You always think at the end of one, 'It doesn't matter what's happened before, no one's going to hire me again.'"

Fashion Fails of The Week!

Oct 23 2014 5:25pm CDT | Source: Celeb TV

Just because you have a favorite Hollywood character, doesn't mean that you should dress like one! We think Olivia Munn thought she was auditioning for a role in Black Swan at the American Ballet Theater. We love Anne Hathaway's new bob but we could do without the Morticia inspired gown. Doesn't she look like she's caught in a spider web? And Kirsten Dunst who's known for dressing in matronly clothes looks like she's trying to snag a spot ...

GLAAD Writer Says Gay Rights Warrior Ariana Grande Leaving Catholic Church Should be "Wake Up" Call

Oct 23 2014 5:01pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

In a commentary posted on GLAAD's website, director of news Ross Murray (who is also a Christian) writes that our own pop queen Ariana Grande breaking from the Roman Catholic Chuch over its rejection of gay people should serve as a "wake up call" to faith leaders that they were driving young people away over the "lie" that God didn't love them"I wish I could say that this story is rare, but it’s not," Murray writes. "Just a few years ago, act ...

Flight Club: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain on ‘Interstellar’

Oct 22 2014 1:23pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

After he plumbed the direst depths of Gotham City in his “Dark Knight” trilogy and traversed multiple levels of consciousness in “Inception,” it seems the only place the filmmaker Christopher Nolan could go next was outer space. In his latest feature, “Interstellar,” an intrepid shuttle team slips the surly bonds of earth to search for wormholes, black holes and planets beyond our galaxy; at the same time, the film is closely concerned with the pale blue dot the crew ...

Who was the best dressed lady at Matthew McConaughey’s tribute?

Oct 22 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I actually liked Matthew McConaughey’s GQ interview (go here to read), especially when he talked about his rom-com past and how that made him the man he is today. He’s not ashamed that he made those films, which is nice. And as a reward, so many of Matthew’s leading ladies came out to support him last night as he received the American Cinematheque Award. Seriously, almost all of Matthew’s former costars are women. It’s kind of nice. For t ...
