Like most celebrities, Anne Hathway is no newcomer to hate mail and haters on the internet. However, she has decided that something needs to be done about it and has taken preemptive measures against them as she continues to gain weight for a new movie that she is shooting. 

The video has been sped up and shows a grueling and difficult workout. Hathaway did not reveal the film that she was gaining weight for but reported some of her upcoming projects which include the sci-fi thriller O2, an adaptation of the Joan Didion novel The Last Thing He Wanted, and a remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrelswith Rebel Wilson.

The Instagram video gathered a lot of support and good wishes from her fans and followers. "Go for it. This is dedication to your craft. Power to you," one fan wrote. "You’re a beautiful person inside and out no matter what size you are," another fan added.

Hathway does not need to give anyone an explanation but feels that body-shaming is getting out of control. She recently also put out an Instagram post in honor of her 2013 Oscar win where she also called out all the haters for getting into her business. 

"I had to change my dress last minute and so it looked like my nipples were hard, I had full-blown laryngitis and had to sing, and a bunch of corny haters were getting lots of attention from the media for being haters but you know what? It was still the best. To all the nominees, I hope you have a BLAST tonight doing all that #bestlife #oscars stuff. Peace xx," she captioned the post. 

As reported by Jezebel, she had said, "It’s not that I’ve gotten a rhino skin to it, but I sort of see all of that for what it is…. How the world feels about me has nothing to do with me. How other people treat me has nothing to do with me. 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." she said.
