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.'"

New trailer for Chris Nolan's 'Interstellar' shows off the strong '2001' influence

When Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey took the stage of Hall H on Thursday afternoon, it was a genuine surprise to most people in the room. As it turns out, it was a pleasant surprise for the studio as well, who weren't sure it was going to happen until very early Thursday morning.If they had not been there, the new trailer for the movie would have had to speak for itself, and I suspect it would hav ...

Rainbow In The Dark: Jenny Lewis On Staring Down Sadness

Jul 19 2014 4:05pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

Once upon a time, Jenny Lewis was one of those child actors you might have seen on shows like Growing Pains and Mr. Belvedere. But then she started making music, and in the late '90s that started taking off. Once her band Rilo Kiley started scoring hits, it was hard to go back to sitcoms. Lewis founded Rilo Kiley in 1998 with her then-boyfriend, Blake Sennett; when when they split up, the band dissolved, too. She began writing her new solo album, The Voyager, in the shad ...

Kristen Stewart & Anne Hathaway go drag king for music video: meh?

Jul 16 2014 6:15am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Most California hipsters and wannabes know of/are obsessed with Rilo Kiley. Personally, I don’t get it. But I’m not from California, I guess. I mean, Jenny Lewis – the singer/songwriter who started Rilo Kiley with Blake Sennett back in the 1990s – is a good artist and everything. I just don’t get why everyone acts like Rilo Kiley is the best band ever or whatever. I guess I’m not “with it.” Anyway, Rilo Kile ...

Katherine Heigl Confronts “Letting Down” Her Audience and Rumors of “Being Difficult” on Set

Jul 14 2014 9:45am CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

For actresses in Hollywood the question of “likability” can be nearly as important to their career as the level of their talent. Just ask the curiously embattled Anne Hathaway or Hathaway’s shadow self, the unstoppably popular Jennifer Lawrence. Or, better yet, ask Katherine Heigl who, during a Television Critics Association Q&A for her new NBC drama State of Affairs, was pressed into confronting both some of the more co ...
