The first images of Anne Hathaway suited up as Catwoman released by Warner last week have caused all sorts of fanboy dramatics. Hathaway herself while speaking to MTV defended the new interpretation of the catsuit & seemingly confirmed that its the full costume. Hit the jump to check it out. Updated: Hathaway responds further.
Hathaway: "I was not going to admit it: I asked someone to send me a few reactions [to the photo], and I happen to know that MTV's reaction was 'meh.' " Now, we're not sure about the "meh" quote, but we will admit to using the phrases "cautiously optimistic," "unflattering" and "underwhelming" in our analysis. Regardless, Hathaway said that no matter the first impressions, there is a lot more happening with that suit. "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 promised. "And if you did like the photo, you have excellent taste."
Pretty weak reaction but I will wait until I see the design in a theater before getting my knickers in a twist.
Update: Hathaway also spoke to ShockYa about the negative reaction to the Catsuit.
Hathaway: "It's disappointing. I think everyone feels a slight frustration with it because those stills so undercut the work that's being done, No, no one's nervous about it. I mean, honestly, like, wait till you see this movie. Chris is doing insane things in it. And it's gonna be marvelous and it's gonna be way beyond what anyone imagines that it could be. You can't imagine the things that he's doing, at least I couldn't until I read the script and I was like, 'You're really? Okay, you're going there!' And it's Chris Nolan; even the picture that he released of me, that's not everything. That's like a tenth of what the catsuit is. And I've got to say, I find it frustrating and I know he finds it frustrating, but I also think that he's having fun with it, kind of like spooning out secrets. He has a lot more control than you think."
