She will be getting fatter and no, she isn't pregnant

Anne Hathaway made a preemptive strike against would be body shamers or nosy people who want to assume that she is pregnant when she took to Instagram showing pictures and videos of her new fuller-figured self.

The award-winning actress made an inspiring statement:

"I am gaining weight for a movie role and it is going well. To all the people who are going to fat shame me in the upcoming months, it’s not me, it’s you. Peace xxwrote Hathaway."

Her statement was attached to a cool time-lapse video showing her working out with a trainer and definitely working up a sweat in an exercise routine that looks pretty tough.

Hathaway has previously publicized her work out routines, such as when she got ultra fit for her role of Catwoman in Dark Night Rises.

She added a bit of cheekiness to quash any would-be haters by writing, "PS- I wanted to set this to Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls” but copyright said. Continued peace xx."

As some people may not be familiar with that epic song, here's the video.

Anne Hathaway may be gaining weight for a role, but she will still look great and she is doing it in a healthy way.
