Anne Hathaway is following in the paw prints of legendary screen sirens like Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry and Julie Newmar by donning the inky black jumpsuit of Batman nemesis Catwoman in “The Dark Knight Rises” (out July 20). And considering how iconic the costume is, it’s no wonder it garnered plenty of scrutiny when images of the suit first emerged last summer.
Anne’s remained largely mum about her “DKR” wardrobe, but when MTV News’ Josh Horowitz sat down with the actress recently, she was game to answer a few questions (albeit, vaguely) about the get-up.
As to the best part of the suit, Anne kept it simple:
“The best? I’m in ’Batman,'” she said with a laugh. “That was the best.”
And the worst, well, the answer was a familiar one:
“The worst, it doesn’t matter; I’m in ’Batman,'” she said. “Like, this is not the sort of job where you nitpick or find things to complain about. I was as happy as I’ve been on anything on this one, it was ’Count your lucky stars every single day.'”
OK, we get it, Anne. You’re in “Batman.” Alongside dreamy Christian Bale. You don’t have to rub it in. Sheesh!
