‘Being in a place where I could enjoy it felt like a really positive development… I have worked too hard on seeing myself with kinder eyes to give away my peace to those who haven’t found it for themselves yet,’ said the star tactfully.

‘So I do my best to not be afraid of what others might say and just focus on enjoying my life.’

Hathaway also said that she is grateful that she was so well received at Cannes this year.

‘We all got our hair and makeup done in the morning and then watched Hillary’s concession speech—and then cried, and then redid our hair and makeup, and then worked a 20-hour day. Because women are really tough.’

And she remembers looking around at all the women and wondering why this had not happened to her before.

‘Like, why has it taken this long into my career to have this many women on set?’ she said.

‘And then I remember having a distinct feeling: Oh, this is what it’s like to be a man in Hollywood. Wherever they go, they’re in a pack; there’s so much ease in this. And I just wanted more of it. 

‘I thought, I have to make this an intention in my career. To work with other women and to create opportunities for as many women to work together.’
