Jezebel interview with Anne Hathaway

- talks about her upcoming movie Colossal in which she plays Gloria, an "out-of-work, alcoholic internet writer in her mid-30s who suffers a pre-midlife crisis and flees New York for her hometown."
- talks about how even after four years, she is still asked about why the internet hates her
- I think it’s weird that it continues to be talked about a little bit. I understand in the context of this movie, why it should be brought up. But it comes up in every interview I do, just about. I am... not eager, but I am ready for the conversation to move to a place beyond it. I don’t have to contextualize all of my stories, all of my experiences through that time.
- thinks most overt things are off-putting, including overt feminism, overt masculinity and overt ageism
- And I’m careful saying this because I wonder how much my reaction has been colored by the people who have explained it to me, and given the world in which we live, the majority of those people have been men.

Also, in a long (and embarrassing, tbh) postscript, the interviewer reflects on how he was one of the people who posted the infamous photo of Hathaway's crotch back in 2012. He basically tries to explain his actions by writing that in 2012 he didn't think much of posting it because at that time, there wasn't such backlash against posting nudes.
