Why Do Women Hate Anne Hathaway (But Love Jennifer Lawrence)?

I can’t figure out why I don’t like Anne Hathaway. Or rather, why we don’t. In all the social-media fallout from the Oscars, the Best Supporting Actress winner also almost won Most Detested Figure of the Night, finishing just behind Seth MacFarlane and the idiot at The Onion who tweeted a slur about 9-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis. “And what the Onion missed is that it's Anne Hathaway who's the real cunt. Right EVERY WOMAN ON THE INTERNET?” tweeted Buzzfeed’s Jack Moore.

Unlike most strangers I claim to dislike (most conservative politicians, some friends’ ex-boyfriends, and the aforementioned MacFarlane), Hathaway and I would probably get along swimmingly. She seems smart and self-possessed, savvy and successful. She’s a spokesperson for Eve Ensler’s anti-violence organization, One Billion Rising. And have you seen the clip of her shutting down Matt Lauer’s creepy questions about her upskirt moment with a measured response about the commodification of female sexuality? It is on point. Yet she leaves me cold.
"Does EVERY WOMAN ON THE INTERNET baselessly hate Anne Hathaway?"Collapse )

i know we're having oscars overload rn, but i thought this was interesting

To be fair, I don't really like either of them, so...

She has the same problem that white Michelle Williams has. Once they got short hair, they adopted a personality. It feels, is, and looks fake. You can tell the difference if you had followed them long enough. Lawrence feels fresh because she hasn't been long enough on the scene, there's nothing to compare, no way to do a before and after.

I've never liked Anne; I don't like her looks, her acting and her voice annoys me enormously. Also, I think she's always, always fake. This is why I don't understand how I can possibly like Jennifer Lawrence as much as I do: She strikes me as a little fake too but for some reason, I don't care.

OMG you are soo right!!! like you want to like her, but she makes it so damn difficult! lol

I dunno with Anne Hathaway. Personality, she seems like Rachel Berry from glee. Very try hard, and not very relatable to an actual person. As an actress, she really isn't bad. I didn't care at all for the most recent installment of the Batman movies, yet found her Catwoman to be quite pleasant. the comparison to Jennifer Lawrence is really silly though. Jlaw is a young girl and is cast in young girl character roles. If Anne cooled it, at least publicly, with the Goop type imaging, this wouldn't even be an issue for her.

Anne comes across as a total Rachel Berry who thinks of nothing else than of calculating the perfect career path so she will be known as a Hollywood legend. whereas Jennifer Lawrence seems like she could care less what the industry thinks about her, and is praised regardless. Neither is good or bad, but anne is definitely not as easy to relate to

Not that there is any point in comparing them, but I think it depends on your own personality. I would rather be friends with someone who's a little over eager and perfectionist, rather than someone who says dumb things and make fart jokes all the time.
So to each their own. They are both talented actresses.

And someone should make a post comparing which male actors people love or hate
queengreen 27th-Feb-2013 02:36 am (UTC)
Damnit! Why do I always miss all the good posts?

Like them both, and tired of all the fail involved with people trying to pit them, or any other Hollywood actress against one another. Just another form of patriarchy, lbr.
tiddlywinks103 27th-Feb-2013 02:41 am (UTC)
Love 'em both.

IDK but Anne is really cheesy with a fake-modesty thing going on. I never want to watch her interviews because it gives me second-hand embarrassment.

Cute, but this was 2 years ago.

I like Anne Hathaway , I like over-dramatic theater kids. She does seem a little fake, but she probably feels like she has to act a certain way. Jenifer Lawrence is just flat out annoying, I don't dislike her. But it seems like she's always trying to be the "different" girl in Hollywood. Acting like she's so fat compared to everyone else (she's not) acting like she's some super special snowflake, who's just the most unique girl on the planet. I like some aspects of her personality though, she has a sense of humor.

Ugh, I hate how much women hate on each other. I swear to God we'd be runnin' shit even more than we are now were it not for that.
