The role: Anne Hathaway played the Grand High Witch in 2020's The Witches, and special effects were used to give her three fingers on each hand. The portrayal was seen as offensive by some, with one advocacy group suggesting that filmmakers used limb differences "to make her more creepy and sinister."
What she said about it later: "I have recently learned that many people with limb differences, especially children, are in pain because of the portrayal of the Grand High Witch in The Witches... As someone who really believes in inclusivity and really, really detests cruelty, I owe you all an apology for the pain caused. I am sorry. I did not connect limb difference with the GHW when the look of the character was brought to me; if I had, I assure you this never would have happened," she wrote on Instagram.
