London: Anne Hathaway has revealed that she was really pressurised during those days when people were outraged at her for her faulty Yorkshire accent in ‘One Day’.

Hathaway, who played Emma Morley in the adaptation of the novel, was left fearing for her days in Hollywood.

“I wish I hadn’t found out how much people loved the book – the weight of expectation got so much larger,” the Daily Star quoted her as saying.

“People seem to know every word. I realised I was definitely going to disappoint a lot of people.

“To be honest, some days the pressure got to me. I felt like I had two big dams of criticism either side of me.

“I tried not to let it get to me but it wasn’t easy,” she added.
