Anne Hathaway is ready to leave her ‘hathahaters’ behind. The Colossal actress recently revealed that she wants to move on from the period in her life when people strongly disliked her after she won an Academy Award for role in Les Miserables in 2013.

“I am… not eager, but I am ready for the conversation to move to a place beyond it. I don’t have to contextualize all of my stories, all of my experiences through that time. I’m ready for it to be implied, not overtly stated,” the Interstellar actress told Jezebel. The Los Angeles native added that the public’s response to the star’s personality and their opinion of her is not her problem. “How the world feels about me has nothing to do with me,” she said. “How other people treat me has nothing to do with me.”

The Golden Globe winner also expressed that although the negativity was tough it has helped her grow as a person. “But if anything that anybody said resonated with me as something I’d like to work on for myself, I took it in like that. And to that extent, I feel like I got to shortcut a lot of my growth. To that extent, even though I wouldn’t have chosen to go through it, I still found a way to be grateful to it.”

While Anne has found peace with her online haters, she is still searching for a balance between her professional life and how much of her personal life she shares with fans. The 34-year-old uploaded a picture of her one-year-old son with husband Adam Shulman on Instagram (Mar. 9) and has since regretted it.

“I decided to post a shot of the back of his head, and almost as soon as I’d done it, I wished that I hadn’t,” she admitted. “I felt like I had broken some kind of a seal in inviting people into my life. And even though I felt as though I had done it in as protective a way as I could, even though it was a moment I was incredibly proud of, I don’t know that I’ll ever do it again.”
