Lena Dunham has backed Anna Hathaway against the ‘Hatha-Haters’ who criticised her Oscar speech.
Lena Dunham has backed Anne Hathaway following criticism of the star’s Oscar acceptance speech.
The Girls star took to Twitter to defend the Anne, who won Best Supporting Actress for her role of Fantine in Les Misérables.
Anne has been the butt of jokes from so-called “Hatha-Haters” for her over-the-top gushy speeches during awards season.
“Ladies: Anne Hathaway is a feminist and she has amazing teeth,” wrote Lena on her social networking page.
“Let’s save our bad attitudes for the ones who aren’t advancing the cause.”
After receiving responses from her Twitter followers about her comments, Lena attempted to switch the focus to Oscar host Seth MacFarlane.
The Family Guy creator has been the subject of a backlash regarding his “sexist jokes” at the ceremony, and in particular a song which some found offensive.
“Hey ragers. ‘The ones who aren’t advancing the cause I mentioned aren’t always, or mostly, women (sic),” wrote Lena.
“Case in point: I saw your boobs.
“Now I’ve said something murky about women’s lib and will return to eating edamame/thinking about moving to Austin like I always do!” she later added.
Anne, 30, confessed she is sensitive to the backlash and derisive comments she has received of late.
Speaking at a press conference shortly after winning her trophy for Les Misérables, she told the assembled press that “it does get to me.”
“But you have to remember in life that there’s a positive to every negative and a negative to every positive,” she mused.
