After the term “Hathahater” was coined, Anne Hathaway seemed to slow down her high-profile roles but with the blockbuster "The Intern" coming out, a TV role on “The Ambassador’s Wife” and a new comedy gig, “The Shower,” Hathaway is taking Hollywood by storm.
Is the world ready to forgive her and move on from the age of the Hathahaters?
"The Hathahaters are definitely letting up on Anne Hathaway - as they should," celebrity expert Dorothy Cascerceri told FOX411. "She's always been the quiet, nerdy 'kid' in Hollywood and that kid gets picked on."
Cascerceri explained Hathaway has managed to earn a fan following recently.
"She has been doing things in recent months to show she's not as square and prim and proper as people think, like her Miley Cyrus cover of 'Wrecking Ball' on 'Lip Sync Battle' that won the audience over. This was a perfect and much-needed example of Anne 'letting her hair down' so people can relate to her."

Pop culture expert Cate Meighan said, in the past, Hathaway didn't seem genuine, which attracted a lot of backlash for her.
“Anne is flawless, but we don't really know her and maybe that's why people don't care for her much,” she explained. “Fans like to feel they can connect on some level with the people behind the characters and Anne doesn't give anyone that opportunity.”
In a recent interview with In Style magazine, Hathaway opened up about how her critics have impacted her behavior.
“For a very long time I felt I was being hunted, and it made me very unhappy,” she told the magazine. But in the past few years, I have been working on changing the script inside my head. Life’s too short to be anyone but yourself. Let the chips fall where they may.”
She added to the mag, “There was a stretch of my life when I wasn’t comfortable being myself. I didn’t think I was good enough. So I pretended to be someone I wasn’t.”
Meighan believes that Hathaway lived her life as one big acting gig, which prevented fans from getting to know her.
“I think that more than anything, she is a real shape shifter in her interviews,” she said. “She caters her personality to match whomever is interviewing her, be it, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Letterman... I think people have watched her, hoping to get to know who she really is, and instead these moments on the couch feel more like another quick acting gig.”
Cascerceri agreed, but she said there is hope for Hathaway to continue to distance herself from the hate.
"In the past she has always had an air about her of 'hovering' over people instead of being on their level, and that's where all of her haters came into play," she explained. "If she can show more of her real, goofy, vulnerable side, she can definitely score brownie points in the Hollywood popularity contest."
Hathaway's next big blockbuster, "The Intern," hits theaters on Sept. 25.
