Barack Obama Says Anne Hathaway Was Best Part Of

Well, we all know who Barack Obama’s celebrity crush is! Michelle Obama LOVES Beyonce, so I though Barack would be all about her too, but apparently Mr. Obama has a thing for Anne Hathaway?

Yes, I’m as let down as you are.

Well, Barack didn’t say he was celebrity crushing on Ms. Hathaway, but rather, she was the “best thing” in the new Batman film The Dark Knight Rises.

During a fundraising event at Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s Connecticut home Monday night, some reporter dodged the “important” questions and got right into it with the Prez on why he loves Hathaway’s portrayal of Selina Kyle (a.k.a Catwoman) in The Dark Knight Rises.


“She’s spectacular,” says Obama, “I got a chance to see Batman, and she was the best thing in it. That’s just my personal opinion.”

Yes, she was very good. So was Tom Hardy and even Joseph Gordon-Levitt. But hey Mr. Prez, you don’t run Hollywood, you just run the country. Now get back to talking about Obamacare and debt ceilings, or whatever else it is that you do.

Actually, lots of Internet whispering has led me to believe that Anne Hathaway might get an Oscar nomination for her role in the film. Some are saying she’s the Dark Knight’s only chance for some Oscar bragging rights in the acting categories.

Did no one else think Joseph Gordon-Levitt was adorable in that film? Am I alone on this one? Alright, Hathaway was pretty good. Also, I’d like to know how many hours of Pilates were required to fit into that catsuit because it had to have been A LOT!
