The fans were not in favor of Anne Hathaway on the night of the BAFTAs.
Hathaway made for a fashionable yet late arrival during the award show on Sunday night, prompting a less-than-friendly reception from the crowd in London.
“I was so late that I had to run straight down to the end of the carpet and miss all the interviews,” she admitted to Jay Leno Wednesday night on The Tonight Show. “And, the worst part was, I missed the fans. They’re out in the cold and the rain and the sleet, and they booed me.”
Adding, “I got booed, my dress ripped and I had the flu.”
While the first part of the evening went array, not all was lost: the Les Miserables star went onto win the award for Best Supporting Actress during the show (aka the “British Oscars”).
“But it turned out great,” Hathaway quickly added. “I got to hug George Clooney, and that’s the whole point. And, oh yeah, I got a really amazing, prestigious award. That’s pretty cool.”
The Oscar-nominated actress had a good reason for her tardiness, explaining to Leno that the zipper on her custom-made designer dress had ripped — and not even a makeshift sewing attempt could hide the malfunction.
“I look like a turkey that has been sewn together. Just not good,” Hathaway said.
Despite the debacle, Hathaway made a stylish statement at the show, looking glamorous in a studded Burberry gown.
“It’s a perfectly gorgeous dress,” she said.
As she takes a brief break from the awards season hysteria, Hathaway reflected on her Valentine’s Day plans today with hubby Adam Shulman — taking part in Eve Ensler‘s One Billion Rising, a worldwide campaign started by the Vagina Monologues author that aims to use dance to help bring an end toward violence against women.
