Anne Hathaway Literally Cries Talking ‘Catwoman’ Spin-off: “I Would Love To!”

Previously, we had heard Anne Hathaway say that a Catwoman spinoff of ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ would be “lovely” but since haven’t had much of an update. But now, with Hathaway out promoting ‘Les Miserables,’ the actress was asked for an update. Hathaway said she “would love to” star in a ‘Catwoman’ film and talked about how much she loves the character. And then she started sobbing.

We like Anne Hathaway quite a bit as an actress and loved her turn as Catwoman in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ but she strikes us as someone who can be a little…histrionic? How else can you explain crying during an interview when talking about how you were crying because you “miss” Catwoman so much? But hey, maybe she just really, really, really loves Catwoman.

Hathaway spoke to Access Hollywood (via Empire) about the rumored ‘Catwoman’ film and said, “I would love to!” And that’s when things got a little emotional:

Actually, it’s so embarrassing, I was at a press Q & A thing the other night for a screening of ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ and the moderator asked me, ‘So what was it like to say goodbye to the character?’ And I burst into tears, because I miss her. It just makes me cry. I miss her. I love Selena so much and I love her presence in my life and getting to… [pauses] I’m crying again…

First off, kind of a weird question Mr. Moderator. “What’s it like saying goodbye to the character?” Well…that’s just what actors do. They play a part, collect their paycheck and move on to the next part. We don’t mean to sound over-cynical but it’s not like Anne Hathaway played Catwoman in seven films. It was one very good role in one very good film. Moving on should be relatively easy (at least in relation to some of the other Batman actors for whom the franchise was a big part of their life for many years).

But Mr. Moderator clearly touched on something because Hathaway did have a hard time letting go. And to get back to the point, the actress does seem to have a close connection with the role. She’s not just giving you the boilerplate, “Yeah, sure I’d be up for that…” kinda response to the spinoff question; she actually seems legitimately interested.

So what do you think? Should Warner Bros. considering spinning Catwoman off into her own film or perhaps even add her to the upcoming ‘Justice League’ film? Or should they learn from their mistakes and realize that one ‘Catwoman’ film (one very, very bad ‘Catwoman’ film) is enough?
