Anne Hathaway, who won the Best Supporting Actress award at this year’s Oscars, has admitted that criticism of her acceptance speeches upsets her.

Speaking to US Weekly, she actress said: “It does get to me. But you have to remember in life that there's a positive to every negative and a negative to every positive.

"The miracle of the universe is that, as far as they know, there's 51 percent matter versus 49 percent anti-matter — things tip in the scale of the positive.

"So that is what I focus on."

She added: "I live my life with love. I live my life with compassion. I live my life hoping the best for absolutely everyone, no matter how they feel about me.

“And when you live that way, it's amazing how beautiful every day can be."

The actress won the Oscar for her role as Fantine in Les Misérables, for which she was also awarded a Golden Globe and a BAFTA.
