Anne Hathaway is clearly one of those people who HAS to be liked by everyone ALL the time, or she will have a meltdown.
The actress appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show on Thursday and explained how she used to Google herself all the time until she couldn't take the Hatha-hate anymore.
"I had gotten out of the habit of Googling myself because that’s just a bad idea to ever do that," Anne told Ellen, explaining that one day she and some friends had an idea for a Funny or Die bit on celebrity pregnancy rumors. "So we just Googled 'pregnancy rumors' and the story came up… the title of it was 'Why Does Everyone Hate Anne Hathaway?'"
Because you are annoying and fake? Oops sorry, was thinking out loud. Back to Anne:
"Well, I listened at first. I couldn't help it," she said. "You know, you try to shut it off, and I couldn't. Then I realized why I couldn't: I hadn't learned to love myself yet. I hadn't gotten there. If you don't love yourself when someone says horrible things to you, part of you is always going to believe them."
There's a happy ending to this terribly tragic story, guys - Anne loves herself again. So she will be super annoying again! Yay?
"So then I was like, 'Okay. I don't want to believe these people. I don’t want to agree with them on any level, and I want to figure out who I am. I want to learn who I am. I don’t want to feel like I’m fragile every time I leave the house because I'm so dependent on what other people think about me.'"
Gosh what a terribly, horribly hard life she lives, really. Orphans in Africa have NOTHING on Anne...
