Actor Anne Hathaway says that the toughest part of hosting the Academy Awards is facing the criticism the very next day. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 36-year-old actor, who had emceed the Oscars in 2011 with James Franco, said that getting the feedback for the gig next day is difficult to face.
It feels nice; everybody tells you it’s going well while you’re doing it. While you’re doing it, it’s like doing anything, you know? My approach to all this stuff is really simple: we’re lucky. Whether or not it does well or it bombs, this is the stuff of dreams. This is not something to get upset about, Hathaway said.
The Oscar winner said that the failing at the hosting job does “sting a bit” but I also think that it might end up being a net positive over life. Well, the lessons that I learned, the life lessons about whom to trust and when to trust them that are going to be the net positive she added.
Hathaway also shared her views about the controversy surrounding Kevin Hart, who recently stepped down from hosting this year’s Academy Awards after his old homophobic tweets resurfaced on social media. She added that, I do just want to go on record and say that the LGBTQ community needs all the allies in the world and deserves all the allies in the world.
The actor will be next seen in “Serenity”, which reunites her with “Interstellar” co-star Matthew McConaughey. The film is set to release in the US on January 25.
