From Oscar Host to Catwoman – Anne Hathaway

Crazy Cat Lady Hathaway?  You bet!

Yesterday I caught a few minutes of The Princess Diaries on TV.  It always seems to be showing somewhere and my daughter never fails to find it.  And you know – it’s darn cute, mostly because Anne Hathaway is darn cute.

Well, Anne has grown up more than just a little since then to become one of this year’s Academy Awards hosts (let’s hope she fares Anne Hathaway by Christopherpeterson better than Ricky Gervais at the Golden Globes) and now it’s been announced that she will be Catwoman in the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises.

Anyone who has ever seen a movie knew from the first five minutes of The Dark Knight that there would be another sequel.   Fortunately for all of us, Christopher Nolan is willing to make it.  The Dark Knight Rises is set to hit theaters in 2012 and reportedly Hathaway had quite a bit of competition on her hands when it came to landing the plum role of Selena Kyle, aka Catwoman.

Whether Keira Knightly, Naomi Watts and Natalie Portman were all in the running, I’ll never know.  But with the phenomenal success of the first two installments of Nolan’s Batman reboot and the return of the entire main cast, it was a given that the role of Catwoman was going to be a prize.

Growing up in Hollywood is usually painful, but Anne Hathaway is soundly trouncing any notion that it can’t also be fabulous and glamorous.  She’s come a long way since The Princess Diaries, but damn if she isn’t still darn cute and wrapping Hollywood around her little finger.  She’s sure to be the most gorgeous Crazy Cat Lady ever.  You go, girl!
