Anne Hathaway at Christopher Nolan’s Grauman event: gamine & lovely?

These are some photos of writer/director Christopher Nolan’s Grauman’s Chinese Theater hand-and-footprint ceremony over the weekend. Almost all of his Dark Knight Rises actors came out for the ceremony, so it was sort of like a low-key premiere red carpet. In attendance: Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Anne Hathaway and Joseph Gordon Levitt. Perhaps it’s a sign that actors love Christopher Nolan. Perhaps it’s a sign that everyone is going to kiss Nolan’s ass from here on out because he rebooted the Batman franchise to incredible results, as TDKR will probably make more than a $1 billion… in just a few months’ time.

Anyway, I just liked the photos. Anne Hathaway caught my eye because with her short hair, she’s looking particularly gamine in these photos. I generally dislike it when any C-list brunette tries to pull the “Audrey Hepburn look” but Annie is actually coming somewhat close. I still think Anne looks better with longer hair, but I no longer think Anne was courting unmitigated disaster when she cut everything off.

Should we talk about Anne’s body language with Christian Bale? I feel kind of bad for even mentioning it, but LaineyGossip and others have already discussed the idea that Bale and Hathaway might have had an on-set fling, and that the fling ended badly. If you didn’t know that or believe that, would you be able to tell from the body language? I think Anne looks like she’s trying to avoid touching Bale in particular – she’s happy enough to embrace everyone else BUT Bale. That’s just how I read it. Poor Anne. This publicity tour is going to be a bitch.

    Her hair definitely looks better now than right after she buzzed it. Overall she looks beautiful here, love her shoes.

    Possible on-set fling? That’s huge, as they’re both attached, no? I feel like I need more details, lol!

    • Ravensdaughter says:

      Maybe she just thinks he’s a douchebag-I can’t ever get over the tape of him raking a crew member over the coal in one of the terminator flicks.

  2. Sara says:

    She ignores him in all the pics. Also she’s my age but has such wrinkles.

    • Jill says:

      Yes, she strikes me as someone who keeps her emotions pretty close to the surface, so this definitely looks like avoidance to me. Even he seems a little awkward and I think he’s pretty good at being non-emotional…unless, of course, someone is getting in his sight line. :)

    • vic says:

      Looks like he’s ignoring her. She’s overrated in every way. Least sexy Catwoman ever.

      • carrie says:

        no,she didn’t ignore him:they were sitting next together and they spoke together
        there were other pics where Bale,Hathaway and Oldman chatted& laughed together on the stage

    • momo says:

      I remember reading she is/was a smoker? Probably doesn’t help with the wrinkles.

  3. lower-case deb says:

    why won’t peplums go away?

  4. brin says:

    She looks good. Wow…interesting about a fling, surprising if true.

  5. Theuth says:

    She looks lovely. I think this cut (slightly longer than during the filming of the musical) suits her and helps into softing her big features.
    Plus I’m a fan of pixie/short haircuts – too many women fear them, and would look a lot better with them than with the usual curtain of long strings.

    • Esmom says:

      I love pixie cuts, too, and agree that more women should go for them. Women seem to hide behind long hair…and also it seems like it’s become sort of societal/cultural that long hair equals more desirable. It is a shame because a short cut can be much more flattering than long, blah locks.

      • gg says:

        True, it can be great, but take it from somebody that unwillingly tried it, it does NOT look great on that many people. You have to have virtually no “bad” sides to your face, no fat chins or neck issues, have great hair, and a nice rounded skull shape. None of which do I have.

      • Esmom says:

        @GG, I know, I’m the same way and I found out the hard way…after it was done. I loved the ease and I got compliments but the novelty wore off pretty quickly and then it took years to grow out. So painful!

        Now I feel like I have to keep it below my shoulders to balance my less than young chin/neck. Ugh.

    • momo says:

      I like pixies too. I usually wear mine in a pixie but am growing it out currently. NO doubt I’ll return to it again though. I get that it isn’t for everyone, but I really like my hair that way. AH looks better in these pics, but I’m still not 100 percent sure it is her best look.

  6. beyonce's bump says:

    I really loved her hair from the start. I know I am in the minority but I think it looks great on her! That dress on the other hand, eesh.

  7. jenna says:

    Bale always looks mean, like someone you should stay away from. I don’t know if its American psycho or the crazy rant from a few years ago.

  8. GoodCapon says:

    She looks sooo manly sometimes. She’s rockin’ that hair though.

    Where is tom Hardy?

    • Mia 4S says:

      Hardy is filming a Mad Max reboot in Africa (no more Mel!). That’s why he had/has that awful beard.

  9. KLO says:

    About the Bale fling – I’d totally believe it because in some other pics from the same event he was looking SO lovingly at her, I was very surprised.

    They probably had at least a mutual crush and are now trying to play it off because they both have partners.

    Nevertheless, it’s sweet. To me. Not their spouses.

  10. NYC_girl says:

    Don’t be hatin’ on the haircut – I have the same one!

  11. normades says:

    Their boby language is so awkward…really believing those fling rumours now!!

    But I believed them before because I thought her engagement was a pr damage control move.

  12. Janet says:

    Very cute haircut and it looks great on her. I’ve worn that cut for years.

  13. lily says:

    Call me a bitch, but I want this film flops just to see everybody’s reaction :D (although I really like Nolan’s films)

    • carrie says:

      bitch! (LOL)

    • Lisa says:

      LOL. I wouldn’t be too upset if it flopped, also to see the reaction of everyone.

      Nolan’s films are OK, though his characters are almost all one-dimensional, and his female characters are generally just there to advance the plot: their actions are totally inconsistent with their supposed “characters.”

      He’s got concepts/ideas that are interesting enough to be different and therefore stand out, but his movies don’t live up to the potential of his ideas.

      I still prefer the Tim Burton/Michael Keaton Batman.

      And yes, I am planning on seeing TDKR. In IMAX.

      • Eve says:

        LOL. I wouldn’t be too upset if it flopped, also to see the reaction of everyone.

        Hardcore Nolanites over IMDb would attempt collective suicide.

        I still prefer the Tim Burton/Michael Keaton Batman.

        Me too. It’s still the best take on Batman, in my opinion. Also, Michael Keaton’s “Batman voice” sounds indeed menacing, not ridiculous like Bale’s.

      • Lisa says:

        @ Eve: Agreed re: the voice! Keaton also seemed more genuinely tormented than Bale does as Batman. I always thought that was the point of Batman. As great as I think Bale was in The Fighter, I just don’t get that from him in these movies.

      • GoodCapon says:

        Eve: I remember that Community episode where Abed imitated Bale’s husky Batman voice in full Batman custome – it was pure gold.

        And how can you italicize/bold your post??

      • Eve says:

        @ GoodCapon:

        I use the first two: em (for italics) and strong (for bold).

    (…)as TDKR will probably make more than a $1 billion… in just a few months’ time.

    I don’t think this will top The Dark Knight’s box office — which, by the way, didn’t take just a few months to achieve (it took 261 days and a re-release to reach “the billion club”).

  15. bns says:

    She looks better with her mouth closed.

  16. Jaime says:

    She’s awkward to me. Like, I can see that she’s a very pretty girl, but there is something about her that is a little off, and it makes her seem a bit gawky and odd. I don’t find her sexy in the least basically, and am quite curious to see how she pulls off Catwoman.

  17. carrie says:

    she looks great (finally she gained a few weight)
    i don’t buy a fling between Hathaway and Bale who finished badly or even a fling.Bale had the same attitude with Maggie Guyllenhal
    On other pics,you can see they chatted and laughed together and they were sitting next together
    i can believe they enjoyed to work together because there are many pics with them in suit laughing/talking on the set in Pittsburg/LA/NY

  18. Ravensdaughter says:

    Very gamine and lovely-her hair has grown out now and looks quite fetching!

  19. stellalovejoydiver says:

    I don´t hate the haircut on her, but it would probably look better on someone who has smaller features. I would have liked it a lot more if she had chosen a more colourful and summerly dress.
    If the it´s true that she had a fling with Bale then I´m f*cking jealous, I bet the sex is crazy.

  20. taxi says:

    the haircut is adorable but not on Anne. It takes semi-delicate features to pull it off & Anne’s got horse teeth & a very big nose.

  21. Lisa says:

    The far bigger question than Anne’s haircut is why Morgan Freeman looks like he’s about to either do yard work or install a satellite dish on someone’s house.

  22. JC says:

    C-list actress?…

  23. RHONYC says:

    aw crap.

    who’s about to get cussed out by Bale in pic #3?!

    dude’s got rage. lol :-D

  24. amoi says:

    anne hathaway is not ugly but unattractive and not sexy, if that makes sense…there’s just something about her that is annoying and asexual. although, i can understand an affair between hathaway and bale miles before i could see one with the other chicks he was sacked with(holmes and gylenhaal)

  25. lisa2 says:

    I have the exact same hair style. I will say it looks good on both of us. :)

    I love a short do especially in the Summer.. It feels so good.

    I find Ann a bit… :/ but Bale and Nolan get on my nerves..and I don’t know why :?

  26. Bee says:

    I have to agree, I’m not a big fan of Anne’s shorter do. I too have a oval face shape and tried short before, it just made me look boyish. I am looking forward to seeing the movie, they have a very good line up of actors!

  27. cari says:

    There was no fling. Have you seen Sibi Bale? She makes Anne look downright homely. Anyway…that rumor was about another movie…Hunger Games. The Dark Knight Rises will go down as the best action movie ever made. The only film made right now on ACTUAL FILM by the way. Congrats to Chris Nolan…an Oscar is on the way.

  28. Ryan says:

    JGL just keeps getting better with age.

  29. Clara says:

    The hair looks very Selina Kyle now.

  30. flo says:

    she looks great (or better than 2 weeks ago at Stella McCartney ‘s party)
    i probably came too late but a japanese Bale fan blog posted a video with Bale and Hathaway sitting together and he kiss her at the ceremony http://blog.livedoor.jp/falcounderground-3rd/archives/5671677.html#
    maybe she heard the rumors and she avoids to be too close (contrary to him who looks totally normal)

  31. Kate says:

    THANK YOU for talking about her body language with Bale! I was expecting Lainey to say something, but she didn’t. I thought it was weird too, she seems very uncomfortable, like she’s avoiding even looking at him. We’ll see how it goes in the premieres…
