Anne Hathaway Admits to ‘Internalized Misogyny’ Working With Female Directors

Hathaway is a proggie. Shocker, not.

Via The Wrap: Anne Hathaway’s latest film, “Colossal,” has been praised for its exploration of how women often face misogynist behavior from men who use their supposed generosity to get what they want.

While talking the film with ABC News, Hathaway talked about another kind of misogyny she’s dealt with in her career: the kind she internalized against female directors.

When asked to name a movie she learned the most from, Hathaway picked the 2011 drama “One Day,” directed by Lone Scherfig. She said that she didn’t trust Scherfig during filming as much as she should have, and to this day that still bothers her.

“I am to this day scared that the reason I didn’t trust her the way I trust some of the other directors I work with is because she’s a woman,” she said. “I hope people understand that it’s hard to admit.”

Hathaway went on to explain that in hindsight, she thinks she didn’t give Scherfig what she needed for the film because she was “resisting her on some level.” She says her reflection on filming “One Day” has impacted how she looks at future films directed by women.

“When I get a script, when I see a first film directed by a woman, I have in the past focused on what was wrong with it,” Hathaway said. “And when I see a first film directed by a man, I focus on what’s right with it. I focus on where he could go with the next one, and I focus on where she failed to go.

“I can only acknowledge that I’ve done that and I don’t want to do that anymore … I, before I realized this, had actively tried to work with female directors,” she continued. “And I still had this mindset buried in there somewhere.”

Hathaway said she planned to call up Scherfig after the interview to discuss her remarks. Scherfig, who directed the Best Picture-nominated film “An Education” in 2009, is currently in pre-production on her next project, “Secrets from the Russian Tea Room.”

“I’ve never apologized to her about it,” Hathaway said. “It wasn’t an issue of professionalism, it wasn’t an issue of … nothing. I hold her in such a dear place in my heart and I think she does for me too.”

Hathaway can be seen costarring with Jason Sudeikis in “Colossal,” which is now playing in select theaters.

  6. This is part of Anne Hathaway’s continuing self-flagellation penance after she finally realized how much she’s loathed by the viewing public for her constant self-promotion.

  8. The only time I wish to hear an actors (or actresses..Yeah i know..that’s sexist) voice is when they are reading their lines in a movie. I am not interested in their opinions, beliefs or any other mind numbingly banal aspects of their superficial lives.
