The celeb in question is none other than Oscar-winning actress Anne Hathaway, who told Refinery29 that she's pretty impressed with the Kardashian clan.

"I used to be like everyone else and think the Kardashians are just famous for being famous. But I've been really impressed with how supportive Kim Kardashian has been of Caitlyn Jenner," Hathaway said.

"When I was younger, I felt very much like, oh, I have to be a certain way, I have to look a certain way," she explained. "You really, really don't."

"That's the way women are treated differently than men," Hathaway continued. "I mean, I've had actors argue with me about this. They say, 'Oh, we all have to have six-packs.' And I'm like, 'Well, that might be true, but with women, it's so many things. It's not just about having a six-pack. I mean, we have to have a six-pack and be able to run in heels.'"
