Rachel Zegler had the biggest year of her career last year, between starring in a DC movie Shazam! Fury of the Gods to winning Action Star of the Year (over Tom Cruise and Keanu Reeves) for her blockbuster role in The Hunger Games prequel The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. However, she also made headlines regarding internet backlash to her upcoming role in the live-action Snow White. As the actress celebrated her 23rd birthday on social media, she spoke to the “hatred” she’s received from the public in the past year in particular, and what she’s learned from it.

She then shared gratitude for her life and her dog before conveying her hopes that her 23rd year will hold a “lot less hatred” and allow her to hopefully feel safer in public. She then followed up the post with this message:
