If you’ll recall just Sunday evening, Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway wore a Prada dress to the Oscars instead of the Valentino dress she’d originally chosen. Since she felt that Valentino was snubbed by her decision, she issued an apology.
Apparently she received a lot of backlash from the decision to wear the dress and apologize for it. So, Anderson Cooper is stepping up to bat to defend her. The “Huffington Post” reports:
“In our morning meeting today, we were talking about this and the level of hatred people have towards Anne Hathaway — I had no idea. She seems like a perfectly lovely person!” he said.
“I don’t understand,” Cooper continued. “She’s incredibly talented, she seems like a lovely person, I think she’s been through a lot. People have all these judgments about her; they don’t know what she’s really like. Nobody knows what any of these people are really like in real life… It upset me.”
When guest co-host Isha Sesay said that Hathaway’s Oscars acceptance speech was “terrible,” Cooper issued another defense, adding, “The amount of pressure she must feel knowing all these people hate her—give her a break. She seems like a lovely young person. Again, people form all these opinions on people based on nothing. You have no actual evidence.”
