Frustration with her forged humble act, Oscar envy, or pure annoyance at looking at her face for too long... Whatever the reasoning, Anne Hathaway has become the most hated person in Hollywood lately.

Here’s a roundup of all the hate directed her way…

(Note: Anne does have one fan: Lena Dunham. The Girls star tweeted that “Anne Hathaway is a feminist and she has amazing teeth. Let's save our bad attitudes for the ones who aren't advancing the cause.”)

Joan River's Mouth-Farts: In an effort to explain the Hathaway hate, “Fashion Police” mogul Joan Rivers made a long vomit sound with her mouth. This happened during an interview with David Letterman. More here.

Her Face (and Teeth): Anne’s face and teeth have become easy targets for the so-called “Hathahaters.” Stare too long at a photo of her smiling and you’ll cringe too.

#IHateAnneHathaway: You’d think that this hashtag was a joke we made up. But you’d be wrong. This social media embellishment has been fitted on a number of tweets and Tumblr posts with their lasers set to “kill.”

There’s a Science to It?: Probably not. But Popular Science did compare the actress’ public behavior to “ a robot built from scratch by the world's most insufferable high school theater class,” which is pretty dead-on.

Anti-matter: Anne’s post-award pressroom rant has gone viral. Here she babbled about a collection of random thoughts, ranging from anti-matter to how impressed she is with her makeup job. It was hard for people to not hate her after seeing this.

Buzzfeed: You know a topic is official when an entire Buzzfeed post is dedicated to it. Case in point: “Why Do People Hate Anne Hathaway?”

Even The Daily Beast Noticed: The esteemed outlet called her Golden Globes acceptance speech: “carefully crafted to come off as surprised and humbled, but was instead so carefully rehearsed that it was branded contrived and a tad pretentious. “

Rage Tweets: One Twitter user said: “The only thing I hate more than Anne Hathaway is Anne Hathaway crying.” Another added: “it's like they took all the things that people find annoying and put them in one person.”
