Anne Hathaway shared her experience regarding her own gold Oscar statuette which she received in 2013 for her role in Les Misérables. She bagged the Best Supporting Actress award and with all smiles, she squealed "It came true!" during her acceptance speech.
However, it seems like the Colossal actress did not consider that career-peaking moment as a dream come true, E! Online reports.
Opening up to The Guardian, the actress said, "I felt very uncomfortable. I kind of lost my mind doing that movie and it hadn't come back yet," Hathaway acknowledged of her intense character being a destitute sex worker. "Then I had to stand up in front of people and feel something I don't feel which is uncomplicated happiness."
She added, "It's an obvious thing, you win an Oscar and you're supposed to be happy. I didn't feel that way. I felt wrong that I was standing there in a gown that cost more than some people are going to see in their lifetime, and winning an award for portraying pain that still felt very much a part of our collective experience as human beings."
Also, many critics doubted the 33-year-old for her sincerity and overall public persona during Les Mis' press tour. Furthermore, Hathaway became the subject of largely unfair criticism when she campaigned for gold.
"I tried to pretend that I was happy and I got called out on it, big time. That's the truth and that's what happened. It sucks."
CNN adds that Hathaway felt 'wrong' to have worn a pink Prada dress during the ceremony, perfected by a necklace which costs around $10 million.
Overall, Hathaway indeed learned something from her experience.
"But what you learn from it is that you only feel like you can die from embarrassment, you don't actually die," she admitted.
Meanwhile, Hathaway's latest film is monster sci-fi flick, Colossal.
