Anne Hathaway Practiced Her Oscar Speech a Lot to Be More Likable

Practice makes perfect! After facing some backlash over her emotional Golden Globe, SAG and BAFTA acceptance speeches, Anne Hathaway worked very hard on preparing her thank-you for the Oscars. After winning the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award on Sunday, Feb. 24, the Les Miserables actress admitted that her feelings were hurt by criticism. "It does get to me," Hathaway, 30, said. "But you have to remember in life that there's a positive to every negative and a negative to every positive." Though the actress tries to brush off the negative comments, a source tells Us Weekly that Hathaway did practice her Oscar speech a lot to try and be more likable. "She was very aware that she had been the butt of everyone's jokes," the source says. Hathaway also worried about picking the perfect gown for her big night. "My dress is Prada and I didn't know what I was wearing until about 3 hours ago," she told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet. "Procrastination?" the E! host asked. "No, I think I was just working too hard," she explained. Indeed, the source tells Us that Hathaway had four dresses in the running including a dress by Valentino, who designed the gown she wore to her September 2012 wedding to Adam Shulman. But the actress ultimately settled on the revealing Prada dress, telling Seacrest, "It was the one that spoke to me." The pale pink design featured pointy darts on the bustline that inspired a HathawayNipple Twitter account. Spoofing Hathaway's acceptance speech, one tweet said, "Here's hoping that someday -- in the not too distant future -- my wardrobe misfortunes will only be found in stories and never more in real life."
