During a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Anne Hathaway revealed how director Christopher Nolan played a pivotal role in reviving her career at a time when public opinion had turned against her. Following her Oscar win for 'Les Miserables,' the actress faced intense online mockery and backlash, with articles questioning why 'everyone hated Anne Hathaway' ranking among the top search results.

Hathaway shared that many industry professionals were hesitant to cast her due to the negative perception created by online toxicity. However, Nolan stood out as a beacon of support, offering her the role of Dr. Amelia Brand in the 2014 film 'Interstellar.' This collaboration came after Hathaway's acclaimed performance as Selina Kyle in Nolan's 'The Dark Knight Rises.'

Reflecting on Nolan's impact, Hathaway expressed gratitude for his unwavering belief in her talent, emphasizing how his backing helped her career maintain momentum during a challenging period. She acknowledged the emotional toll of public humiliation but stressed the importance of resilience and staying true to one's artistic vision.

Despite the difficulties she faced, Hathaway credited the backlash as a catalyst for personal growth and self-confidence. In a separate interview, she highlighted the empowering aspect of overcoming adversity and encouraged others to embrace challenges rather than fear them.

Looking back on the period of online criticism, Hathaway admitted to feeling shocked and embarrassed by the hatred directed towards her. However, she emphasized the transformative nature of such experiences and the lessons learned from navigating public scrutiny.

Currently, Hathaway is set to star in the upcoming romance film 'The Idea of You,' scheduled for release on Amazon Prime Video. For more insights into her journey and career, readers can explore the full cover story on Vanity Fair's website.
