Earlier this year, Ms. Hathaway starred as the ultimate femme fatale “Catwoman” alongside Christian Bale, Marion Cotillard, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Christopher Nolan’s THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Nolan’s third and final chapter in the Warner Brothers’ film franchise was both a critical triumph and a smash hit at the box office.
In 2008, Hathaway starred in Jonathan Demme’s critically acclaimed “Rachel Getting Married” for which she was nominated for an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, an Independent Spirit Award, and a SAG Award in the “Best Actress” category.
