Anne Hathaway reveals the surprisingly misogynistic experience with a director that haunts her to this day https://t.co/LF9uY1Mh6I

More from Vanity Fair:
Anne Hathaway has proven in recent years that she is more than an Oscar-winning actress—she is a deep thinker who wants to use her celebrity platform for good, whether it means elegantly putting interviewers in their place for asking sexist questions, speaking at the United Nations on International Women’s Day, or opting for a though-provoking new film that is part feminist allegory. But rather than simply speaking publicly about Hollywood’s female problem, Hathaway did something even bolder in a recent interview—she reflected on her own problematic behavior, volunteering one experience with a female filmmaker that haunts her to this day.
“I really regret not trusting [Danish director Lone Scherfig] more easily,” Hathaway told Travers on ABC News’s Popcorn With Peter Travers. “And 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.”
“I’m so scared that I treated her with internalized misogyny,” Hathaway continued. “I’m scared that I didn’t give her everything that she needed or . . . I was resisting her on some level. It’s something that I’ve thought a lot about in terms of when I get scripts to be directed by women.”
Wow. She’s, like, so brave to have admitted this. We can only hope she’s truly learned from her misogynistic past and will be a more perfect feminist going forward.
