Anne Hathaway Backstage Quotes Oscars 2013

Anne Hathaway on Living Her Life With Love and Oscars "Dream Come True" Backstage

Anne Hathaway completed her award-season sweep with her first ever Academy Award win this evening. She's taking home the little gold man for best supporting actress for her work in Les Misérables. On stage she thanked a laundry list of co-workers and loved ones, and afterward she stepped backstage in her Prada gown to talk about this moment. Anne talked about her mindset and how she lives her life with love. Here are highlights:

On life since meeting husband Adam Shulman: "He's just made everything better and clearer and more real."

On whether this relinquishes her underdog status: "Officially? Never. I'm an actor. This is spectacular, but if you want to get realistic with it, you're always looking for the next job. You always think at the end of one, it doesn't matter what has happened here, no one is ever going to hire me again. I'm going to ride this wave as long as I can, but I always feel as an actor gotta work gotta work gotta work."

On whether she is impressed with her own performance: "I'm impressed by the work around me. I'm impressed by my makeup. I'm impressed by my costume . . . set . . . score . . . song, but all I can hear is all the notes I didn't quite hit. Maybe I'll get over it someday."

On thanking costar Hugh Jackman: "Tom Hooper, our director, has gone on record as saying this film wouldn't have happened if Hugh didn't exist and I know exactly why he says that. Hugh is this magical alien combination of strength, soul, heart, artistry, and fun. We do live in a world that can tend toward the cynical, but to have something in a film like this that believes that the goodness in the character. That someone like Hugh exists that has that goodness inside him, it makes that film soar. I mean we're not coal miners, it's not hard work, but it was challenging. We looked to him every day. He never complained once. He did as many takes as need be. He was absolutely our rock, and inspiration to me personally."

On her acceptance speech: "I had a dream and it came true and that can happen and that's wonderful. That's all I was saying. I live my life with love."
