Anne was joined by co-stars Jason Sudeikis, Austin Stowell, Tim Blake Nelson and director Nacho Vigalondo yesterday at the Toronto Film Festival for the premiere of her new film Colossal. Later they attended an after party in celebration.
During the premiere Anne wore a Rodarte dress and Francesco Russo saldals, and at the after party she was rocking in Givenchy. Check pictures in our gallery:
Earlier today Anne was part of a live chat with Variety to promote Colossal. While on that, she was asked about playing Catwoman on screen again. Of course all we have now is headlines about “Anne is up for playing Catwoman again” and lots of people being against the idea.
So let’s take a moment to actually WATCH what she said on the said interview:

We all know she enjoyed the part. Also we all know the Nolan universe is now wrapped and they reboot the Batman story. End of story.
Annie is on TIFF today, since Colossal is premiering tonight. Variety made a live Q&A with her, Jason Sudekis and director Nacho Vigalondo to talk about the film, and you can watch it below:
Last year, news broke that Anne Hathaway had signed on to star in Colossal, a mysterious project from Spanish filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo described as a cross between classic kaiju monster flicks and quirky small-town drama.
Now, Colossal is ready to make its premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, and even now, Vigalondo says he’s not always sure how to best explain the concept to people.
“The movie’s coming from my obvious love towards monster movies, and I was always intrigued by the possibility of setting a monster movie story in a human scale,” he tells EW. “This is a monster movie that collides with a small indie drama, which is an interesting collision.”
Fantastic Fest’s final wave of programming has been announced, and the closing night film is a doozy, being Nacho Vigalondo’s Colossal. Starring Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis and Dan Stevens, the film revolves around Hathaway’s character discovering she has an improbable connection with a giant monster destroying South Korea.
Fantastic Fest runs from September 22 to 29, taking place in Austin, Texas, and you can follow full details on the official website.
A few days ago it was announced that Warner Bros. has acquired movie rights to “Live Fast Die Hot,” a New York Times bestseller which was published by Doubleday in June, and Anne is set to star it.
“Live Fast Die Hot” is a follow-up to Jenny Mollen’s 2014 bestseller “I Like You Just the Way I Am.” The new book focuses on Mollen, who’s also an actress and is married to actor Jason Biggs, dealing with issues of motherhood, and her travels to Morocco and Peru.
The project will be overseen by Warner Bros. executive Chantal Nong as part of an effort by the studio to recruit female filmmakers and talent.
Warner Bros has firmed an October start date in New York for Ocean’s Eight, the female-driven caper spinoff directed by Gary Ross, and the studio is closing with its principal cast. Aside from the previously identified Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett, deals are close with Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina. The latter is the hip-hop moniker of Asian-American rapper and actress Nora Lum, who most recently had a role in Neighbors 2.
The picture is still casting — the firmed roster so far falls one shy of the title — and there is every possibility for cameos from the stars of the original trilogy, which grossed a collective $1.12 billion worldwide. Village Roadshow Pictures is co-financing and co-producing with Warner Bros.
The film will be produced by Ocean’s Eleven director Steven Soderbergh, and Ross wrote the script with Olivia Milch. Ross and Soderbergh are longtime informal collaborators, serving as second unit director on each other’s films and as sounding board on scripts and projects.
Anne just made a beautiful and heartfelt post on her Facebook page a few minutes ago, about Garry Marshall. “The Princess Diaries” legendary director has died yesterday, at age 81. Read it:
