No, the Dark Knight Rises actress doesn't know them personally, but...
She admires them from afar.
"Right now, I'm obsessed with Kate Middleton. Obsessed," Hathaway, who stars in the about-to-be released One Day opposite Jim Sturgess, says in the new issue of Interview magazine. "I loved the Royal Wedding. I was so cynical going into it and, pseudo-political about the whole thing, but as soon as I saw her I was utterly charmed. I'm just completely enchanted by Kate and William. With everything she's doing right now, I say, 'Yay, Kate.' "
Hathaway admits in the interview (conducted by E! funnylady Chelsea Handler, by the way) that she's a fan of Jersey Shore. "I thought the first season of the show was awesome because it was authentic, but I don't watch it anymore because now they know that's a camera there," said Hathaway, who grew up in the Garden State.
"The Situation is totally self-aware," she said. "He's referring to himself as The Situation. In the episode I saw, his car got towed, and he was like, 'We're got a situation here, and The Situation is the situation.'"
Perhaps she'll tune into JWoww and Snooki's upcoming reality show spinoff? "I think JWoww is amazing," Hathaway said. "I love JWoww. She's intense. See, JWoww to me is proper Jersey because she will scrap for a friend."
There's so much more in the Interview piece. Some other nuggets include Hathaway's belief that she's dated some guys who are gay but haven't admitted it (let the guessing begin), she almost bought a cat so she can observe it to prepare for her role as Catwoman and she'd like to get married one day, but no one has ever proposed to her.
We suspect the gay boyfriend thing may have something to do with that.
