  2. Justin Bieber

    Justin Bieber

    Justin Bieber recently got arrested for drunk driving and resisting arrest -- and it may be the straw that broke the camel's back. Are you over the trouble-maker pop star? Or are you still a loyal Belieber?

  3. Kim Kardashian

    Kim Kardashian

    Nowadays, it seems like Kim Kardashian's every move is documented by paparazzi. Newsflash, paps: Kim K taking a shopping trip isn't news. Do you need a break from the socialite?

  4. Kanye West

    Kanye West

    Now that Kanye West is engaged to America's most popular socialite, he's been popping up everywhere too. Plus, he doesn't have a filter, so some of the stuff that spews out of his mouth is bound to annoy.

  5. Miley Cyrus

    Miley Cyrus

    Miley, Miley, Miley. Ever since her epically raunchy MTV VMA performance last year, the pop star has been front and center in the entertainment news cycle. Are you itching for a Miley Cyrus vacay?

  6. Ryan Seacrest

    Ryan Seacrest

    On TV, on the radio, on the red carpet… Ryan Seacrest is literally everywhere these days, especially with award show season underway. Could you use a break from the guy?

  7. Jennifer Lawrence

    Jennifer Lawrence

    Curveball! Everyone absolutely adores Jennifer Lawrence, but her current high exposure with films like "American Hustle" and "Hunger Games" may lead some to crave a quick break.

We guess those Hathahaters really got to her! Ever since winning an Oscar for her role in "Les Miserables" last year, Anne Hathaway has kept a pretty low profile. And now we know why.

"My impression is that people needed a break from me," the 31-year-old "Best Supporting Actress" winner reportedly told the Huffington Post with a laugh.

Hathaway had to deal with some surprising backlash last year, after people started criticizing her acceptance speeches for seeming disingenuous and her overall demeanor for seeming too dramatic. Soon, the term "Hathahaters" was created to describe those who were less-than-fond of the A-list actress.

But hopefully, all that's behind her now. For the past year, Hathaway has stepped away from the spotlight, not starring in any movies in 2013 and making very rare red carpet appearances.

Now, we ask: Should some other stars take a hint from Hathaway's hiatus? From Justin Bieber to Miley Cyrus to Kanye West, the list of celebrities the world needs a break from seems endless. Which famous face would you like a vacation from?

    Probably a combination of both her and Kanye but I picked her because at least he worked hard to get where he is today. On a side note I never understood the hate for Anne Hathaway though. I actually feel bad that she felt that way and didn't want to do anymore movies for awhile. And finally, I don't think it's possible to ever get sick of Jennifer Lawrence. She is extremely talented, beautiful and hysterical. What more could you want of someone? jennifer lawrence sag awards 2014

    Anyone without a truly discernible talent (Kim K and the rest of those buffoons on "reality TV") should just go away! It's sickening how easily entertained we've become! Kim K's only somewhat contribution to the industry was whoring it up and getting blasted in every orifice by the washed up, never was singer Ray J. Oh, but she's rich so she gets a pass... and fame!

    Almost all popular culture drives me up the wall so I have unplugged myself. I don't know these people. I do have an unjustified prejudice against rappers and such like. They seem to be having a lot of fun. I'd like to see an emergency so drastic that all the rappers had to be conscripted and sent to the Solomon Islands to bury bodies.

    If only I could answer this survey as a combination of Anne Hathaway and Miley Cyrus as Hannah Montana. It's hard for me to only choose 1 of these 2 fabulous women, because I love both of them!
    My 3rd choice would be Kim Kardashian.

    I know that I picked Kanye West, but the person I really would have like the pick is Queen Bey, Beyonce.

    Beyonce should go away

    Why the heck is Beyonce not an option? Now, before you Queen B fans get your panties in a bunch, let me just say that I do not hate Beyonce or anything. I mean, I am not a BIG fan of hers, but I do like several of her songs. However, I REALLY wish that Beyonce would take a break already. I am tired of hearing from her. I am tired of hearing about her. I am tired of her winning every major [music] award there is. I really need a break from Beyonce. She needs to take a break for about a year or so. Give me about a year or so Beyonce! Maybe just maybe, one day I will say, "I wonder whatever happened to Beyonce. I miss her."

    The name Kardashain makes me what to throw something at a wall. She clearly has an excellent publicist but they have little to work with and have blown up a client whose only claim to fame is the bank accounts of the men who do her.

    Can someone please explain how being a vapid whore with a big ass makes you a STAR. That whole family makes women look like a bunch of idiots who have a bunch of money they waste and then everyone lazy person at home goes "I wish i were rich!" losers. At least the rest on that list are working. Yes annoying but thats only because you keep looking.

    I don't believe that Anne's hate was justified, because she hasn't really done anything but her job ever since she got famous for the "Princess Diaries" movies. She hasn't done anything to tarnish her career, and so all those people who gave her hate for acting to dramatically seem like they are just nit-picking. However, I do give her props for taking it down a notch when people told her to, though it was not needed. Not many stars, such as Bieber, Cyrus, ESPECIALLY Kardashians, actually listen to their fans. Even though, the Kardashians are not famous, they are infamous. One must realize the difference between the two. The Kardashians have done nothing to help the society, all they do is just benefit themselves, there is no point in their popularity. I have said it many times, and I will say it again: the Kardashians have gotten famous for a freaking sex tape for Christ's sake! Yeah, their father was in the O.J. Simpson trial, but nobody gave a crap about his family then, so why should we now? What have they done in their spare time that hasn't just either benefitted themselves or embarrassed them? Countless clothing/perfume lines, their own freaking reality show, and our wasteful money just keeps making them richer and richer for absolutely nothing.

    I'm tired of her "look everyone, i'm a big girl now. Look how sexual i can be. I'm definitely not a Disney star now" thing. She has been laying it on waaaaaaaaayyyy too thick.

    To some extent, all of the above, or at least most of the above. But to narrow it down to one, I would like to go a day without having Miley Cyrus' tongue shoved in my face.

    Kanye is probably number 2...I would say Lindsay Lohan and her stupidity would rank #1...anyone from the Kardashian family would rank #3...

    I chose her, because she is the only one I Don't know more than I want to about! That said, there Are no 'stars' now--------they are All people who act like idiots just to get their names in the 'news' . If Hathaway had the good sense to step away from the trash, more power to her!
