Anne Hathaway has apologized after the criticism surrounding her HBO movie “The Witches”.
In the film adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic book, the 37-year-old actress plays an evil witch who has three fingers on each hand, a condition similar to a limb.
She wrote on Instagram on Thursday: “I have learned that many people with limb deformities, especially children, are suffering from the role of Grand High witch in The Witches.
She continued, “Let me begin by saying that I do my best to be sensitive to other people’s emotions and experiences not out of some fear of PC, but for not hurting people. Another seems to be a basic level of politeness that we should all strive for.
“As someone who truly believes in embrace and truly, truly hates cruelty, I owe you all an apology for the pain caused. I̵7;m sorry. I do not connect chi difference with GHW when character’s interface is brought to me; If I do, I assure you this will never happen. “
The apology comes with a video from Lucky Fin Project, a non-profit that supports children with limb disabilities.
The mother of two also wrote: “I especially want to say that I apologize to the limb disabled children: now that I know better, I promise to do better. And I owe to everyone who loves you so strongly as I love my own children a special apology: I apologize for letting your family down.
Earlier this week, Warner Bros. The description read: “We, the filmmakers and Warner Bros., issued an apology statement. Pictures is deeply saddened to learn that our depiction of fictional characters in ‘The Witches’ can leave people with disability and regret any crime it has committed.
