Anne Hathaway gave the Berlin Film Festival one of its hottest red carpet looks of the night when she stepped out at the She came to me premiered in a sheer black mesh column dress by Valentino.
The 40-year-old actress also wore black opera gloves with her hair styled elegantly.
This look is the latest in a very strong red carpet fashion run for Hathaway. It also comes as the actress found more peace with herself and stopped letting other people’s opinions diminish her.
Hathaway, who featured in ELLE’s Women in Hollywood issue this fall, spoke at the magazine’s event in Los Angeles celebrating her and her fellow honorees on how the “Hathahate” of the past has affected her.
“In my opinion, let the language of hate begin with oneself,” she began. “Thank you for letting me go. I thought it was important to bring up this concept because I recently overheard a little girl, between 8 and 11 years old, telling her mother in a parking lot that her friend – who I assume is also a little girl – hated her own mouth. And I really felt for this young, young little girl who was experiencing the first wave of self-loathing, which I’m sure a lot of us understand. And we don’t have enough time to discuss all the myriad causes of the violent language of hate, and the compelling need to end it.
“Ten years ago, I had the opportunity to look at the language of hate from a new angle,” she continued. “For context, it was a language I’ve been using with myself since I was 7. And when your self-inflicted pain is suddenly amplified, say, at full internet volume… That’s one thing.”
“When it happened to me, I realized that wasn’t it. That wasn’t the place,” she said. “When what happened, I realized that I had no desire to have anything to do with that energy line. At any level. I would not create any more art from this place. I wouldn’t hold a place for him anymore, I wouldn’t live in his fear anymore, I wouldn’t speak his language anymore for no reason. To anyone. Me included. Because there is a difference between existence and behavior. You can judge the behavior. You can forgive a behavior or not. But you don’t have the right to judge – and especially not to hate – someone for their existence. And if you do, you’re not where it is.
“Hate seems to me to be the opposite of life; in such hard ground, nothing can grow properly, if at all,” she added. “And I think that’s what we’re talking about when we talk about culture. We’re basically talking about the soil in which our collective and personal roots are rooted. And as a mother of young children – that is, someone who’s spent the last six years around young children – I strongly believe that we are born experiencing love. of both.
“This next point is debatable, and I hope it is not offensive in its optimism, but: I believe the GOOD The news of learning hate is that whoever has learned it can learn,” she continued. “There is a brain there. I hope they give themselves a chance to relearn love.
