This preemptive statement from the actress comes one month after she took to social media to send another message to her haters.

Hours before the 2018 Oscars, Hathaway responded to the criticism surrounding her appearance at the 2013 Academy Awards, the night she took home the Best Supporting Actress award.

"I had to change my dress last minute and so it looked like my nipples were hard, I had full blown laryngitis and had to sing, and a bunch of corny haters were getting lots of attention from the media for being haters but you know what? It was still the best," she wrote on Instagram. "To all the nominees, I hope you have a BLAST tonight doing all that #bestlife #oscars stuff. Peace xx."
