"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.'"
