Anne Hathaway regrets this past misogynistic experience with a film director

Actress Anne Hathaway has opened up about her own

"And when I see a film. directed by a man, I focus on what's right with it", she went on.

In an interview with ABC's Popcorn with Peter Travers, Hathaway said that she was anxious that she "resisted" Lone Scherfig, who directed her in 2011's One Day, because she is female.

Hathaway specifically cited her experience filming the 2011 drama "One Day", directed by Lone Scherfig, revealing that she "didn't give [Scherfig] everything that she needed" because on some level, the actress didn't fully trust her as a filmmaker.

"When I get a script, when I see a first film directed by a woman, I have in the past focused on what was wrong with it", she said.

Oscar-winning actress Anne Hathaway has admitted to not trusting female directors in the past due to "internalised misogyny".

Hathaway said she would call Scherfig after the interview to apologise.

Bills' Kouandjio hospitalized after weird incident
He was found by police, partially clothed, after climbing an electric fence and reportedly told police to "shoot me". In a tweet on the Bills' Twitter account , quarterback Tyrod Taylor said, "Sad to hear that [news about Kouandjio]".

Anne Hathaway is known for championing equality, once famously saying 'A man told me that for a woman, I was very opinionated.

The subject came up in an interview on Tuesday, when Peter Travers asked Hathaway a straightforward question-about the movie set on which she learned the most. I, before I realized this, had actively tried to work with female directors.

It's no surprise that Anne was prone to the same sexist logic that is endemic in Hollywood, though it's commendable that she's able to recognize and be open about it. "And I still had this mindset buried in there somewhere". I focus on where he could go with the next one, and I focus on where she failed to go. "I swear, if anyone near me even so much as whispers the sentence 'Women probably don't want to direct, ' my fist will fly as a reflex action".

"That journey is way harder than it should be", Hathaway said of women in Hollywood.

During the interview, Hathaway had an epiphany of sorts and a visceral reaction to her divulgement stating, "I'm getting red talking about this, it feels like a confession, but I think it's something we should talk about". Rather, it was a direct reflection of a larger, societal issue: that female directors don't always get the same treatment as their male counterparts. They get fewer opportunities to take their shot at top-grossing films and less leeway for their films to be well-received.
