TomKat Boycotting the Oscars Because of Anne Hathaway?
Hathaway is set to host this year’s Oscars alongside James Franco, but her amusingly accurate portrayal of Holmes may have enraged the actress to the point of boycotting the ceremony, according to The Daily Mail.
Watch the SNL skit here:
The Daily Mail quotes a source saying that Holmes and Cruise felt betrayed by Hathaway’s imitation considering Holmes and Cruise supported Hathaway following her breakup with then-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri in 2008.
“Katie feels they were really supportive at a difficult time so she feels let down that Anne took to national TV to make fun of her,” the source confirmed to the paper.
After Hathaway’s spoof aired on SNL, the Love and Other Drugs star defended her performance claiming she was not making fun of Katie Holmes the person, rather a character Holmes personified.
“I was a teenager when ‘Dawson’s Creek’ was airing, and I was a pretty avid fan, so it just sort of came from that,” Anne told The Hollywood Reporter (via Access Hollywood). “It wasn’t really Katie Holmes; it was more [her ‘Creek’ character] Joey Potter.”
See for yourself if TomKat can take a joke or if Hathaway’s send-up was no laughing matter at this year’s Academy Awards, which airs February 27.
