Obama: Anne Hathaway Was the 'Best Thing' in "The Dark Knight Rises"

Warner Bros. Pictures/DC Comics(WESTPORT, Conn.) -- President Obama has seen The Dark Knight Rises, and he preferred Catwoman over the Caped Crusader.

At a fundraiser held Monday night at the Westport, Conn., home of producer Harvey Weinstein and co-hosted by Catwoman herself, Anne Hathaway, Obama praised the actress' performance in the Batman sequel. According to Deadline.com, the president remarked, “She’s spectacular. I got a chance to see Batman, and she was the best thing in it. That’s just my personal opinion.”

Hathaway co-hosted the fundraiser with Weinstein, The Newsroom creator Aaron Sorkin and Paul Newman’s widow, Joanne Woodward.

Anne Hathaway 'Living on Hummus and Radishes'

Warner Bros. Pictures(NEW YORK) -- There are diets and then there are diets.

Take, for example, actress Anne Hathaway, who in preparation to fit into her Catwoman suit for The Dark Knight Rises and play the tuberculosis-ridden prostitute Fantine in the upcoming film version of Les Miserables, the 29-year-old actress subsisted on a 500 calorie diet of radishes and hummus.

"I'm on day six of detox," she told the latest issue of Allure magazine, adding "this diet makes me break out, so I love that. Nothing like living on hummus and radishes and then be all, 'And I got a pimple. Yeah!'"

On top of that, she's been working out.

"The Catwoman suit. It was a psychological terrorist," she said. "... the suit, thoughts of my suit, changing my life so I would fit into that suit ... it dominated my year. I went into the gym for 10 months and didn't come out."

New Pictures Show Anne Hathaway's Catwoman Ears

Jim Spellman/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- New pictures have surfaced of Anne Hathaway in her Catwoman suit from the set of The Dark Knight Rises.

The new pictures, seen on the gossip site TooFab.com, show the actress wearing a black mask and "cat ears" -- fans had decried those missing details in earlier pictures.

And there's apparently a "real world" explanation for the headdress: it seems her character's nightvision goggles can flip back behind her head, leaving two black "ears" when viewed from the front.

Anne Hathaway Responds to Criticism of Catwoman Photo

Jim Spellman/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Anne Hathaway knows there are fans and critics who didn't approve of the photo released last week of her as Selina Kyle/Catwoman in the upcoming Batman film The Dark Knight Rises.

In the picture, which was posted on the movie's official website, she's seen wearing high-tech glasses and a skintight black outfit while riding Batman's batpod -- a far cry from the Catwoman depicted in other Batman projects like the 1960s TV series or 1992's Batman Returns, featuring Michelle Pfeiffer in that role.

While speaking with MTV News, Hathaway reassured fans that there's more to her version of Catwoman than meets the eye, saying, "If you didn't like the photo, you only see about a 10th of what that suit can do."

She added, "If you did like the photo, you have excellent taste."

The Dark Knight Rises opens next July.

Fans Get First Peek at Anne Hathaway as Catwoman

Jim Spellman/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- After last week's leaks of footage of The Dark Knight Rises that revealed actor Tom Hardy in action as villain Bane, Bat-fans were wondering when they'd get a peek of another key character from the upcoming Batman film: Catwoman.

The movie's official website has just posted a single picture of Anne Hathaway as Selena Kyle, the animal-loving cat burglar who becomes Catwoman.

The picture shows Hathaway astride Batman's batpod, wearing a skin-tight black leather suit, topped with a set of high tech specs to partially obscure her face -- no cowl with kitty cat ears, as she's usually portrayed.

The Dark Knight Rises, also starring Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, and Morgan Freeman, hits theaters next summer.
