Anne Hathaway Says That 'Internalized Misogyny' Made Her Distrust a Woman Director

Anne Hathaway ‘baffled’ by success

But the actress added that she knows how hard it is for women to get "the reins to anything". The movie came up when Travers asked her if there were any projects from the past that she's learned something from.

As one of many who have spoken out about needing greater representation of women in the film industry, Anne Hathaway has admitted that, in the past, she has had trouble trusting a female director due to what may have been "internalized misogyny", reports The Guardian. "It's something that I've thought a lot about in terms of when I get scripts to be directed by women". I focus on where he could go with the next one, and I focus on where she failed to go.

"To this day I'm scared the reason why I didn't trust her the way I trust some of the other directors I've worked with is because she's a woman", she said.

"I'm ashamed to say I don't remember her name, but I do remember the crew and others trying to sink her". While the actress could have given any variety of softball answers-about studying co-star Meryl Streep's acting mastery on the set of The Devil Wears Prada, or battling the live-music elements in the large-scale adaptation of Les Misérables-Hathaway showed her vulnerability by speaking about her time on the set of 2011's One Day, the romance with Jim Sturgess directed by the female Danish filmmaker Lone Scherfig. By talking about her biases openly and discussing the steps she is taking to overcome prejudice against even her own gender, Hathaway is modeling the type of social evolution that is necessary in creating more equitable working environments and a more just society. A representative for Lone Scherfig has since expressed the director's 'love and admiration for Anne and her work'.

Reflecting on the difference between men and women's careers, Hathaway added, "That journey is way harder than it should be". "It wasn't an issue of professionalism, it wasn't an issue of ... nothing".

Hathaway also said that when she receives a script from a male director and a female director, she always thought about them much differently. "I hold her in such a dear place in my heart and I think she does for me, too", she said.
