It seems as though famed film legend Christopher Nolan enjoyed working with Anne Hathaway in The Dark Knight Rises. He’s asked the actress ,who played Selina/ Catwoman, to return in his newest project, Interstellar. Details on her role are limited, but we do know she’ll be opposite Matthew McConaughey.
As seen on Deadline.com, there’s no official log line for Interstellar just yet. The film has something to do with wormholes and time travel, depicting “a heroic interstellar voyage to the farthest borders of our scientific understanding.” Definitely not the typical Matthew McConaughey rom-com.
This is Hathaway’s first big commitment since her Oscar winning performance in Les Miserables. The actress is undoubtably talented, but probably laying low after receiving so much criticism during awards season. There are masses of “Hathahaters” who simply deplore the actress for no real reason, as explained in a recent New York Times article. Critics really should give Miss Hathaway a break. She’s undeniably talented and gorgeous (even with no hair and molars when she played Fantine in Les Mis). While some accuse Hathaway of being “too perfect” or “insincere”, let’s not forget that at her core she’s a “drama geek who cannot turn off the eager, girlish persona, even away from the stage,” as described by Neal Gabler, an author of several best-selling books on Hollywood culture and history. Hello, Annie got her start as a nerdy girl with bad hair turned pretty, pretty princess in The Princess Diaries back in 2001 (anyone else smell typecasting!?) Not every actress can be as adorable and perfectly flawed as the lovely Best Actress winner, Miss Jennifer Lawrence. While Hathaway is not everyone’s imaginary BFF, Anne is damn good at what she does and deserves a smidgen of credit for that, instead of all this mean spirited, middle school, Mean Girls-esque hating.
Regardless of how you feel about Anne Hathaway, Interstellar is one to get excited for. As a writer and/or director, Nolan has yet to commit to a bad movie. Don’t believe me? See for yourself and get even more excited.
