In an interview with The Guardian, the actress revealed that it felt very uncomfortable. According to her, she felt wrong standing in a gown that cost more than some people will get to see in their lifetime.
“I felt very uncomfortable,” Hathaway said to The Guardian. “I kind of lost my mind doing that movie and it hadn’t come back yet. Then I had to stand up in front of people and feel something I don’t feel which is uncomplicated happiness.”
”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.”
In 2013, Hathaway won Best Supporting Actress for her 2012 performance of Fantine in "Les Misérables."
The 33-year-old who faced criticism for her attitude on stage during her acceptance speech said to The Guardian, "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."
In 2013, the actress had said during her Oscars speech, “here’s hoping that someday in the not too distant future the misfortunes of Fantine will only be found in stories and nevermore in real life. Thank you.”
The movie was directed by Tom Hooper and starred the actress alongside Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, and Amanda Seyfried.
