Los Angeles: Anne Hathaway has opened up about her struggles in adjusting to Hollywood fame and stardom.
The actress, who was at the receiving end of criticism during her Oscar campaign for 'Les Miserables', says the whole thing messed her up for a long time. The Oscar-winner even took a break to get away from the ridicule that followed her at that time.
"I didn't know how to do it; I didn't know how to engage with it; it stressed me out. And people would say, 'You just have to be yourself,' and I was like, 'But I don't know who that is yet!'," Hathaway said.
The 31-year-old actress, who got married to Adam Shulman, says she understands now that she does not need to please everyone.
"I've realized that don't need validation from anybody. At all. I'm not sitting here now worrying, 'What do you think of me?' With all due respect, you seem like a lovely lady, but I don't need you, or anyone else, to like me. And that's so liberating. It's a big reveal, man," she said.
