Catwoman Can Still Bring Anne Hathaway to Tears… In a Good Way

I'm In A Glass Case of Emotion

Anne Hathaway’s made no secret that she really wanted the role of Selina Kyle went she went for it in the casting process for The Dark Knight Rises. It should surprise no one that she’d be 100% down for reprising her role as the character in some form. (Not that any such thing appears to be on the horizon, or is even likely to be on the horizon.)

But the emotion with which she regards the character is pretty endearing:

She told Access Hollywood:

It’s so embarrassing, I was at a press Q&A thing the other night for a screening of The Dark Knight, and the moderator asked me, ‘So what was it like to say goodbye to the character?’ And I burst into tears, because I miss her… Assuming there’s enough Kleenex in the world, yes, I would love to [reprise the character].

Do I need to add a line in here about how good female characters can have a real impact on, say, a female person? I mean, the closest I’ve ever come to acting is playing a very long-lived Dungeons & Dragons campaign in college, and I still have moments where I get a little sad that I don’t get to be a berserker paladin on a weekly basis anymore. If anyone still doubts Hathaway’s affection for the character, just take a look at this video of her talking to Oprah about the Oscars:

(I played a fighter who prestiged into Holy Liberator with a little bit of barbarian multiclassed in, so that the D&D folks don’t jump on me about alignment requirements in 3.5e.)
