Anne Hathaway Shuts Down Fat Shamers as She Gains Weight for Movie Role

The 'Les Miserables' actress says, 'To all the people who are going to fat shame me in the upcoming months, it's not me, it's you.'

AceShowbiz - Anne Hathaway is in preparation for a new role in her new film, which title has not been revealed yet. Sharing the news on her Instagram account, she mentioned that gaining weight would be in her workout schedule. Moreover, she preemptively shut down those who would fat shame her in upcoming months.

She posted the news along with a video of her workout session. She wrote, "I am gaining weight for a movie role and it is going well." The 35-year-old actress continued the post by writing, "To all the people who are going to fat shame me in the upcoming months, it's not me, it's you. Peace xx." She also quipped, "I wanted to set this to Queen's 'Fat Bottomed Girls' but copyright said no. Continued peace xx."

In the video, she was seen wearing a black tank top that she teamed up with black-and-white patterned pants and sneakers. She ran through an intense-looking routine that included bench presses, ab work, push-ups, weights and squats. With all of the workout stuff, she will surely achieve her goal.

Some people came to her side with comments like, "You're a beautiful person inside and out no matter what size you are," "And you shall be a queen in any shape or size!!" and "How on earth would anyone fat shame you?!?!?! I hate this planet." Some fans also came up by commenting on her post, such as, "Love that. It's not me, it's you. Great work beautiful," "@annehathaway copyright thing was clever enough" and "Amazing quote!" There were also some fans who tried to guess the new film, writing, "ohhh. is this for that 'Barbie' movie???" and "Wish it was for 'Cat Women' [sic]."

The actress is known for not concerning herself with weight or size. In August, she wrote on her Instagram account, "There is no shame in gaining weight during pregnancy (or ever). There is no shame if it takes longer than you think it will to lose the weight (if you want to lose it at all). There is no shame in finally breaking down and making your own jean shorts because last summer's are just too dang short for this summer's thighs. Bodies change. Bodies grow. Bodies shrink. It's all love (don't let anyone tell you otherwise.)."

In September 2016, she talked about learning to appreciate her new, post-baby shape. She told PEOPLE, "I think shape is an ongoing thing in everybody's life. I'm not trying to recapture something that was. I'm going with what it is now."

She also talked about her embracing changes in life with the site, saying, "Some things I guess are the same as they were, and other things are a little bit different. I'm just so proud of what the changes signify. So, there's no rush to do anything. I'm so happy being here."
