This could become really big -- and it sounds horrifying.

Back in 2013, the actress took home the award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Les Misérables and received some backlash for her over-the-top acceptance speech.
But in a new interview, the 33-year-old revealed she was actually still acting upon receiving the coveted trophy, and was actually quite miserables IRL.
Speaking to The Guardian, she remembered:
"I felt very uncomfortable. I kind of lost my mind doing that movie and it hadn't come back yet. Then I had to stand up in front of people and feel something I don't feel which is uncomplicated happiness. It's an obvious thing, you win an Oscar and you're supposed to be happy. I didn't feel that way."
"I felt wrong that I was standing there in a gown that cost more than some people are going to see in their lifetime, and winning an award for portraying pain that still felt very much a part of our collective experience as human beings."
While the actress concedes she had it coming, she insists her forced joy was responsible for people rolling their eyes that fateful night, adding:
"I tried to pretend that I was happy and I got called out on it, big time. That's the truth and that's what happened. It sucks. But what you learn from it is that you only feel like you can die from embarrassment, you don't actually die."
Cheer up, Anne! At the end of the day, you still have your Oscar…
