The ‘Devil Wears Prada’ actress was seen dealing with a disorderly crowd, telling the fans to “calm” down, in Italian, while placing her hand out in front of her, gesturing for them to quiet down.

“I cannot take photos with everyone,” Hathaway is heard saying in the video. “But I will stand here and wave if you would like to take a photo. I cannot sign; there are too many of you.”

“Mi dispiace [I’m sorry] but I want you to have something so if you’d like I’ll just wave a little bit,” she repeated before thanking the crowd “for understanding.”

After watching how Hathaway handled the crowd of fans, who were heard yelling and screaming at the now 41-year-old, many social media users are slamming the actress for being “condescending.”

“With how long she took to be condescending, she could possibly have signed and took the photos,” one user expressed, adding, “She was being unnecessary.”

That same user added, “Like she said, there are too many, and she couldn’t possibly pose or sign for all.”

While another user said they “respect” the actress, claiming “she is extremely polite and setting up boundaries” in the video. “I can respect that. And that’s the best way to control the situation,” they added.
