Actress Anne Hathaway who is gaining weight for a role says she is happy with her body and wants it to be her experience.
People.com reported that Hathaway has been body-shamed a number of times for gaining weight.
The "Ocean's 8" star appeared on NBC's "Today" show on Thursday morning and discussed her experience gaining weight for a new job. She also explained why she decided to call out fat shamers before they could criticize her weight gain.
"It sounds kind of sad to say," Hathaway told "Today" co-host Hoda Kotb. "I just wanted to be able to enjoy my summer and let everybody know that I'm living in my body and I'm happy with my body."
On the body shaming, Hathaway said she experiences it all the time.
"And in the ways where it's overt and people say things to you and then there's kind of micro ones," she said.
