Anne Hathaway insists she doesn't mind if a film she stars in gets a bad review because she knows how much work it takes to make a film

Anne Hathaway won't be offended if a movie she stars in gets slated.

The 33-year-old actress doesn't take it personally if a film she appears in is criticised as she knows how much work it takes to make a film, even if it turns out to be bad.

In an interview with the Guardian's G2, she said: "I don't take it personally when bad movies get made. It takes so much work to make anything.

"I don't know where it's going to lead to, and I don't know if this movie ['Colossal'] is going to have an impact. I'd like to think it might empower people to take risks, but I don't think we need to diminish one in order to celebrate the other.

"I am aware of the reactions that various movies have had. I just think you gotta remember that no one sets out to make a bad movie and when people do, they're aware of it."

Hathaway plays a drunken drifter in 'Colossal' and she enjoys taking on roles which can break the stigma surrounding the certain type of people she portrays.

She added: "I have met a lot of addicts in my life who I have a lot of tender affection for. I love when stories present the opportunity to take groups that have been stigmatised or judged and then show the human side. I always look at them and think, 'That's me in there' on some level."

Meanwhile, the 'Princess Diaries' star previously revealed she is "so surprised" by her own success.

She said: "This whole thing, everything that's happened to me has been such a lovely surprise. I've worked very hard for it, but I'm so surprised that it's going as well as it is."
