Anne Hathaway responds to Amy Schumer's 'Trainwreck' parody of Oscars reaction

Anne Hathaway knows how to respond to a diss with grace and class.

When the actress found herself the butt of a lighthearted joke in Amy Schumer's new film Trainwreck she drew attention to it - and the film - by publicly paying the comic actress a huge compliment.

A scene in the rom-com sees Schumer's character mock her boyfriend Bill Hader for carrying around a charity award "like Anne Hathaway at an Oscar party" in reference to Hathaway's exuberant reaction to her 2012 best Supporting Actress Oscar win for Les Miserables.

Rather than taking offence, Hathaway posted a picture of her ticket stub for the film on Instagram along with a sweet message to Schumer:

Schumer and the film's director, Judd Apatow, responded to Hathaway, 32, on Twitter:

Trainwreck

Despite becoming an easy target for critics in recent years, Hathaway has proved her wicked sense of humour on plenty of other occasions.

The Devil Wears Prada star regularly joins Saturday Night Live's famous parody sketches and memorably morphed into Miley Cyrus for an impressive tongue-in-cheek take on Wrecking Ball in on Lip Sync Battle.

And she may not be far off the mark in tipping Schumer, 34, for an Oscar for Trainwreck. The critically acclaimed comedy made a whopping $30.2 million (£19 million) in its opening weekend in the US and has been hailed by comedy great Jerry Seinfeld, while Girls star Lena Dunham described Schumer as "box office gold".

The film is due out in the UK on August 14.
