Anne Hathaway Responds to Criticisms of Her Costume in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

     August 9, 2011


Anne Hathaway should respond to Internet criticism with a grain of salt.  I know I do and I’m the one who writes it.  There was a huge response to the reveal of her outfit in The Dark Knight Rises even though A) there was no context, B) we don’t know if it’s the outfit she wears the entire movie, and C) we don’t even know if she’s really “Catwoman” in this movie or just Selina Kyle with a skin-tight outfit.  But she has been reading the Interwebs and she tells MTV, “If you didn’t like the photo, you only see about a 10th of what that suit can do. And if you did like the photo, you have excellent taste.”  I didn’t even know we had seen a 10th of what the suit can do.  Is making Hathaway look hot count towards the suit’s abilities?  Can’t any outfit do that?

Again, it’s important to remember that Nolan doesn’t really care about pre-conceived notions of these characters.  He pulls from multiple comics and also brings in new elements.  But I do thank Ms. Hathaway for fueling the speculation fires about what the other 90% of her suit can do.  Hit the jump for video of Hathaway’s response to the criticism about her outfit.
