NME Festival blog: Anne Hathaway says she has been ‘shamed and humiliated’ as she discusses bodyshaming


The star recently told Instagram followers she was gaining weight for a movie role

Anne Hathaway has spoken out about bodyshaming in the movie and media industries, saying she has been “shamed and humiliated” in the past.

The star recently shared with her Instagram followers that she has been gaining weight for a movie role in an attempt to avoid being the subject of pregnancy rumours.

In a new interview, Hathaway explained that decision, telling Glamour: “I didn’t feel like dealing with the pregnancy rumours. I find it bizarre that there’s a storm to get ahead of, but I have a history of being shamed and humiliated, for a lot of different reasons.”

The actor, who stars in the upcoming Ocean’s 8 movie, also discussed why she wanted to be involved with the Time’s Up movement. “I’ve had a 20-year career and I’ve had some really, really bad experiences, but I’ve had a lot of great ones too – with members of both genders. While they do not begin to approach the atrocious, galling stories others have shared in recent months, I have had negative on-set experiences, some of a sexual nature. Some are from the beginning of my career, some are more recent – all are unacceptable.

“Being a 35-year-old cisgendered woman who has experienced the everyday, abusive imbalance of the world also made me want to be a part of a movement for change,” she continued. “I know the world can be far worse for others than it has been to be, but I suppose, like more everyone who has been hurt, I want to protect others from going through the worst of what I experienced.”

Ocean’s 8, which also stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna, and more, will arrive in cinemas in the UK on June 22.

Ok everyone, here is the essential details for our big day on Saturday.

The wristband exchange is at Wakefield One. That’s Cliff Lane, WF1 2EB. It’s opposite Westgate Train Station and is also the location of Wakefield Museum .

Regardless of what ticket you have, this is where you switch it for a wristband. It opens at 11am and closes at 6pm. We recommend you get your wristband in this window. From 6pm it will move the Warehouse 23, but that venue will be busy, so if possible, collect it before 6pm at Wakefield One.

When you collect your wristband you’ll be able to get a programme with a map and stage times but the most up to date schedule will always be our Clashfinder (below).

Limited tickets will be available on the day for £30 (as opposed to £25 advance) but these may sell out during the day.

If you don’t have a ticket, you can still wander into free venues. That’s totally fine. But if you have a wristband you’ll be able to use it to get cheap coffee / booze / books / food across town. There will be flyers for the deals at the Wristband Exchange. And you’ll also look cool.

FINALLY – and we can’t stress this enough – get down early for performers you want to see. It is going to be busy. Once a venue hits capacity, a one out one in system will be in operation. This WILL happen. There will always be other things happening in other venues.

And extra finally – explore! There is so much going on. Just get out there and see what you find. Have a wonderful Long Division Saturday and thanks for supporting us this year.

Tickets are still available:
