Don't come for Anne Hathaway. The Oscar-winning actress is currently working on a new movie — and she's calling out her future body shamers before they even have a chance to trolling her about her weight gain. In a video documenting her current workout routine, Anne shut down her haters in the best way possible.
"I am gaining weight for a movie role and it is going well. To all the people who are going to fat shame me in the upcoming months, it’s not me, it’s you. Peace," she captioned the video. Watch the video above to see Anne today!
While she does not name the movie she is working on, according to IMDB, Anne is set to star in the upcoming film Barbie, based on the famous doll. And weight gain would make sense given the movie's synopsis. "A doll living in 'Barbieland' is expelled for not being perfect enough and sets off on an adventure in the real world," the description reads. Initially, Amy Schumer was given the title role but she dropped out due to scheduling conflicts.
However, she only had good things to say about her replacement. "Hathaway smathaway jkjk she's perfect," she wrote on Instagram last summer. "Can't wait to see it!" The film is expected to be released in May 2020.
Anne, 35, is no stranger to cyberbullying. The Devil Wears Prada deals with her Hatha-haters, as they are called, on a daily basis. But she does not let the criticism get her down. "Well, I listened at first. And I couldn’t help it, you know? You try to shut it off and I couldn’t. And then I realized that why I couldn’t was I had not learned to love myself yet. I hadn’t gotten there. And if you don’t love yourself when someone else says horrible things to you, part of you is always going to believe them," she explained on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "I feel like I’ve arrived in a place where, you know, maybe not every minute of every day, but way more than I used to, I have a tremendous amount of love and compassion for everyone else. And best of all I have it for myself, which I never enjoyed before."
