Anne Hathaway hints at Batman role Anne Hathaway is reportedly looking to star in the next Batman film. The Love & Other Drugs star cryptically declined to comment on recent reports suggesting that she is one of six actresses in the running for a role in The Dark Knight Rises. Deadline questioned the star about the possibility: “There is a strong group of actresses in your age range who are mentioned for all the plum parts that come along. It’s going on right now as Chris Nolan gets started on a new Batman, and you’ve been mentioned as a candidate for that. Do you find yourself competing against certain actresses, or any you measure yourself against?” The actress replied: “Of course, but that has always been the case. There is always competition… I don’t know how to answer that question – it feels too revealing, somehow.” Hathaway will also host next year’s Academy Awards ceremony.
