“Sorry to spoil things, boys…” Did LA Times overstep on Anne Hathaway Catwoman interview?
LA Times Online’s “Hero Complex” is running an interview with Anne Hathaway where she “Talks The Dark Knight Rises Catwoman.” As was noted on Twitter, what she actually does is perhaps more reminiscent of her Princess Diaries past, for as was said of the late Princess Diana, she demonstrates the art of saying (almost) nothing with great distinction.
Hathaway talks about the origin of her character in Batman #1 (and narrowly misses insulting Bob Kane in the process!) and its inspiration in screen actress Hedy Lamarr, said to be the most beautiful woman of her day, how she studied the actress for her performance, etc. Standard actress stuff. She repeats her defense of the disappointing costume, but she reveals no specifics about her character or the plot. She merely makes general comments about Selina and her ties to Gotham City, and how any individual Catwoman ties to a creator’s version of the city.
Hathaway herself spoils nothing. LA Times columnist Geoff Boucher, on the other hand, describes a scene and plot point in detail. He opens with it so you’ve read it before you knew what was coming. (An advisory has since been added to the top of the article.)
Could Warner Bros., Christopher Nolan and producers have known this was coming when they gave him access?
Readers are advised to avoid this interview and remain unspoiled, but if you absolutely must, follow the link to the full Hero Complex material.
