Anne Hathaway played with lace for the cover of September 2011's Interview. Inside the magazine, the One Day star chatted with Chelsea Handler about life, fashion icons, and her Catwoman role in The Dark Knight Rises — before her upcoming film's release tomorrow. Check out the first installment of our I'm a Huge Fan series with Anne to see how winner Areeba prepped to eventually meet her! Anne also spoke with fellow New Jersey girl Chelsea about the effects of growing up in the state and shared her thoughts on marriage. Anne said:
- On her love for Kate Middleton: "Right now, I'm obsessed with Kate Middleton. Obsessed. I loved the royal wedding. I was so cynical going into it, and pseudo-political about the whole thing, but as soon as I saw her I was utterly charmed. I'm just completely enchanted by Kate and William. With everything she's doing right now, I say, 'Yay, Kate.'"
- On playing Catwoman: "I actually had this moment when I convinced one of the assistant directors on the London portion of the film to get a cat with me, the idea being that we were going to get a kitten from a rescue shelter, and he was going to live with me, and I was going to observe it, and when I left London I was going to give it to her. Then, thankfully, her husband pointed out that that was a terrible idea on so many levels, not least of which being that it would probably be really confusing to the cat. So I turned to YouTube instead and got a National Geographic video on cats. . . . I am still cat-less. My man is allergic to cats, so that decision is made for me. What we give up for love, Chelsea."
- On being a Jersey girl, almost like the ones on Jersey Shore: "My best friend got married this past weekend in Barcelona, and I was one of her bridesmaids. She's one of my best friends from Jersey, and this guy was messing with her, and I was totally like, 'Who am I punching?' She was like, 'No one. You're not going to punch anyone.' And I was like, 'Fair enough, but if a fight breaks out, who do you want me to swing at?"
- On being in favor of marriage: "I am, actually. I just went through a phase where I wanted to look at it from every angle to make sure that I wasn't just falling in step with some kind of prescribed fantasy. . . . [A]t my best friend's wedding just two days ago . . . I watched this person who I love like a sister, and who has changed my life and continues to change my life for the better, who I feel as close to as I do my family, commit herself to a man who she loves, and I watched how happy it made her. I mean, she looked like she was riding a bubble the whole night. I thought, 'Weddings are important because they celebrate life and possibility.'"
