Anderson Cooper doesn't understand the level of hatred people have towards Anne Hathaway. In fact, Cooper went as far as to defend the actress during his morning show.

"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. [Hathaway is] 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… It upset me, because so many of the people on my staff today were like, 'Ugh, that speech she gave at the Oscars, it was so perfect.'"

When co-host, Isha Sesay, followed Cooper's remark claiming Hathaway's Oscar speech was "terrible" and "disingenuous," he blatantly disagreed.

"First of all, you know what a bad speech at the Oscars is?" Anderson fires back. "Everybody else's speech—when they are like, 'I want to thank my Uncle Mordecai, my agent, my management team.' That's a bad speech. She got up there, she made eye contact, she remembered people's names without reading it. I mean, give her a break," he said.

Though Hathaway's career skyrocketed in 2012 following her Oscar-winning 'Les Mis' performance, the actress' overexposure is definitely taking a toll on her likeness, as public opinion of her is at an all time low.
