We know we’ve said this before, but we are all about the new, aggressive Anne Hathaway from The Dark Knight Rises. First she accidentally man-handles a stunt man, now she’s calling out Oscars co-host James Franco for blaming her pep for his seemingly sleepy hosting style. “I let James know that a whirling dervish is a more flattering comparison than a Tasmanian devil. I called him, and we e-mailed a bit,” Anne told Bazaar, as she slowly put out a cigarette on his picture. Or so we assume.
Hathaway will always have a place in cinema as the alabaster, bespectacled lead in movies like in the upcoming One Day, but the woman also is able to go hard-coreÃ‚Â cinematically-speaking) when she needs to. “I’ve always thought that skinny was the goal, but with this job I also have to be strong,” Anne says about playing Catwoman . Hathway also takes time to dismiss haters who disliked her Oscar hosting role, explaining, “In the grand scheme of things, I got to have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I met great people, wore beautiful clothes. And I got to put on a show. I don’t see a downside. Anyone who disliked my personality probably disliked my personality before the Oscars.” Okay, certainly that’s the most polite smack down imaginable, but a smack down nonetheless. The old Hathaway would have had a panic attack and sent everyone in the Academy muffin baskets.
