Anne Hathaway Reacts to ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Catwoman Criticisms

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway wasn’t shy when asked about the criticisms of the first Catwoman photos that Warner Bros. released from The Dark Knight Rises, even revealing that she asked someone to send her some of the reactions to the suit.

“I was not going to admit it: I asked someone to send me a few reactions [to the photo],” Hathaway told MTV News. “And I happen to know that MTV’s reaction was ‘meh.’ ” In fact, MTV’s response to the photo used the words “cautiously optimistic” and “underwhelming” in their critique.

Last week, the first image of Hathaway as Selina Kyle in the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises was released on the web and many did not have a favorable impression. Holly Duffy said, “I’m sure it won’t be as bad as I think, but still, Catwoman doesn’t look like that, and Anne Hathaway is too cuddly to play her.” In the image, Hathaway was seen wearing skin-tight leather and riding a large motorcycle.

“What I am happy to say is, if you didn’t like the photo, you only see about a 10th of what that suit can do,” she said.

She added: “And if you did like the photo, you have excellent taste.”

During filming, Hathaway’s stunt double wrecked an expensive Imax camera during filming. She was riding a giant motorcycle down the steps of a Carnegie Mellon  University building when she went flying into the camera.

Frank Ocean Covers FADER

Each year we’re presented with a new artist that’s suppose to be the next big thing. This year we have Frank Ocean and it looks like homeboy is here for the long haul. He has managed to take the music world by storm in only 6 months….yes it’s only been 6 months. Drops Nostalgia, Ultra then gets on Watch The Throne, now he’s a cover boy. Much respect to the grind.

When he was nine, Frank Ocean’s godfather subscribed him to Robb Report, a magazine for the ultra-rich. Less interested in fiduciary smarts, it’s a catalog of conspicuous consumption, highlighting tropical vacations, invaluable antiques and, as Ocean came to know, really expensive cars. Though he comes from a middle class family, he obsessively read the magazine’s classified ads, fixating on exorbitantly priced used Bentleys and Maybachs. “I would just fall in love with all their cars. That was the start.” Ocean, whowas born Christopher Breaux (and goes by Lonny to friends), downscaled his material desires, and when he was 13, began going door-to-door, detailing cars for cash. “I would bring all my supplies. Literally, it was like a movie, I had a wagon, those long red wagons, like a Radio Flyer-type wagon, and I used to buy my own soaps.
