Forever 21′s Batman And Catwoman Collection Has Me Conflicted

Forever 21's Batman And Catwoman Collection Has Me Conflicted

On the one hand, I’m not the hugest fan of Forever 21. As a company they’ve a history of things like (allegedly) ripping off designers and (allegedly) mistreating workers. And when I bought things from them back in my high school days they always fell apart. On the other hand: I really like that pencil skirt, and some of the sweaters are decidedly nice and snuggly-looking. I’m just going to wistfully look at some of the items in the company’s new Bats & Cats collection and wish someone else made them, but you can decide for yourself. Read more on The Mary Sue…

“I saw ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ last night, and among other things, Catwoman is a feminist superhero with a story line and transformation of her own — plus class consciousness, a girl buddy, equal skills with the Batman equipment, and an apartment of her own in Old Town.  And she gets the guy.”

– It’s the movie endorsement you’ve all been waiting for: iconic feminist Gloria Steinem gives a thumbs-up to “The Dark Knight Rises.” Okay, I am pretty sure you were not waiting for that endorsement. [It's worth noting that Steinem's husband was David Bale, who died in 2003, and she is therefore Christian's step-mom, which may make her a tiny bit biased. That said, the movie looks gooood. -- Editor] But I am happy to hear she thinks Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman is a great role. The words “feminist superhero” are ones we can always use to more of in the mainstream! [Women & Hollywood]

Anne Hathway’s Catwoman Suit Is More Classic Than We Feared

Comic book fans seemed uniformly disappointed by the first image of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Perhaps this new photo will set minds at ease. Sure, the cat suit might not be as shiny as usual, but in this shot it appears far closer to what we’d expected, complete with cat mask and ears. Anne has joked that she is subsisting on “kale and dust” to fit into this thing. Is it worth it? [ONTD] Keep reading »

Anne Hathaway Is “Living On Kale and Dust” To Fit Into The Cat Suit

“Last time we talked about how much I really don’t like working out, and I’ve kind of fallen. … I really like it now. I feel like, ugh, I’m that person. I came to L.A., got a bikini wax, went blond and loooove working out. The catsuit’s unforgiving, man. I’m a vegetarian and right now, I’m living on kale and dust for the training.”

Anne Hathaway talks to Chelsea Handler about how she’s staying in shape for her role as Catwoman in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Nooooo, Anne! Eating next to nothing while you’re exercising tons just isn’t okay. Perhaps she confabbed with Jessica Alba, who recently shared with Lucky that’s she’s losing her baby weight by eating 1200 calories a day. “Basically I’m starving—it sucks,” she said. “I drink a lot of water.” Now, there is a part of me that would rather see actresses being honest about their strict diets rather than being all “I eat cheeseburgers all the time and am just naturally this skinny.” But I really wish these women didn’t feel the pressure to live in nutritional misery to whittle off pounds. And it really worries me that giving flippant quotes like these normalizes extreme dieting. [NY Daily News, ONTD]
