WASHINGTON – Actress Anne Hathaway told an audience Saturday night that she’s been frightened by the hatred of LGBT people that bigots spew — but a speech by former vice president Joe Biden went a long way to restoring her faith.
“I really needed this,” Hathaway said as she accepted the National Equality Award at the Human Rights Campaign’s National Dinner.
“I think I’m probably walking around like most people right now. I’m pretty shell shocked by what I see every day, what I hear everyday. And I really don’t like to admit this, but I get scared.”
Hathaway said she felt better after hearing speeches from Biden and HRC’s President Chad Griffin, who spoke earlier in the evening.
