Anne Hathaway on “One Day” Criticism: “I Tried Not to Let it Get to Me”
However, as she recently told Bang Showbiz, she soon realized she wouldn’t be able to get thumbs up from everyone when it came to her portrayal of Emma Morley.
“I quickly realized I was going to disappoint a lot of people. People have their own idea about who these characters are and how they act and how they sound,” the 28-year-old said. “I didn’t realize how deeply loved the character was when I signed on to play Emma. I wish I didn’t really know!”
Hathaway’s performance isn’t the only part of the film that didn’t get rave reviews. One Day, which chronicles the evolution of Emma’s relationship with a fellow student (Jim Sturgess) by capturing them every July 15 for 20 years, currently holds a 34-percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
