“Humiliation is a hard thing”: Anne Hathaway says Christopher Nolan and Interstellar saved her career

by Tommy

After Anne Hathaway won the Oscar for Les Misérables, an online shitstorm ensued. The actress has now revealed that Christopher Nolan saved her career afterwards with Interstellar.
2012 was a turbulent year for Anne Hathaway. After the actress appeared in Christopher Nolan’s Batman conclusion The Dark Knight Rises and was celebrated by critics and fans alike, she appeared in front of the camera for the musical adaptation Les Misérables. Although the Devil Wears Prada star even won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, the role sparked a veritable shitstorm online and Hathaway drew ridicule for her portrayal of the young mother Fontine.

As the actress explained to Vanity Fair in an extensive cover story, this even had far-reaching consequences for her career: “A lot of people didn’t want to give me roles because they were worried about how toxic my identity had become online. “

Christopher Nolan was Anne Hathaway’s angel and gave her one of her favorite roles in Interstellar

Christopher Nolan had no qualms, however, and offered her a great role for his film Interstellar with NASA scientist Dr. Amelia Brand, which Hathaway now says even saved her career:

‘I had an angel in Christopher Nolan, who didn’t care about any of that, and gave me one of the most beautiful roles in one of the best movies I’ve ever been a part of. I don’t know if he knew he was supporting me, but it had that effect. And my career hasn’t lost its momentum the way it could have without his support.

Anne Hathaway in Les Misérables:

Although the actress was aware that dealing with public criticism was part of her job, it was still a difficult time for her:

‘Humiliation is a hard thing. The key is not to let it get you down. You have to stay brave and that’s hard because sometimes you think ‘If I play it safe, if I embrace the middle, if I don’t draw too much attention to myself, I won’t get hurt either’. But if that’s what you want, you can’t be an actress.
