Anne Hathaway burned herself on Oscars night

Dec 24, 2012 | 6:15am EST

Anne Hathaway was hiding a secret injury on the night of her big Oscar nomination as she suffered a third-degree burn shortly before she stepped out at the ceremony.

The Devil Wears Prada star earned herself a Best Actress nod for her role in Rachel Getting Married, but she was left in agony on the night of the 2009 Academy Awards after hurting herself on the way to the big show.

Hathaway burned herself on the exhaust pipe of her limousine and had to keep the injury a secret until the next morning, and she now boasts a scar from her big night in Hollywood.

She tells "It's a long story - I actually stepped into the tailpipe of the limo I was riding in, and got a third-degree burn. So the next morning, I woke up in pain - but not on the inside."

Hathaway's evening ended badly as she lost out on the award to British actress Kate Winslet, who won for her turn in The Reader.
