Anne Hathaway Acceptance Speech: Best Supporting Actress Winner Practiced A Lot

At Sunday's 85th annual Academy Awards, Anne Hathaway took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in "Les Miserables." While accepting the award, Hathaway thanked her husband and fellow "Les Mis" cast members, but not before exclaiming, "It came true!" ("It" being her dream of winning; also a play on the song she sings in "Les Miserables," "I Dreamed A Dream.")

If Hathaway's acceptance speech seemed rehearsed, that's because it reportedly was -- many, many times.

An unnamed source told Us Weekly that Hathaway practiced the speech in an effort to appear more likable. "She was very aware that she had been the butt of everyone's jokes," the source said.

Whether that speciously sourced quote is true or not, Hathaway has been the subject of widespread hate as of late, intensified in part because of her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes.

Unfortunately for Hathaway, the online barbs only continued after the Oscars. Take a spin through a sampling of the shade thrown her way below.
