Did Anne’s less-than-stellar Oscar performance humiliate her in front of her Batman costar, Christian Bale, and director, Christopher Nolan? Sources tell HollywoodLife.com how Anne felt post-Oscars!

In her most anticipated role to date, Anne Hathaway is set to slip on the Catwoman suit in Dark Knight Rises. But now, she may have gotten off on the wrong foot with costar Christian Bale, who won his own Academy Award on Sunday, and director Christopher Nolan after they saw her Oscar debacle live from their seats in the Kodak Theater. Sources tell us what Anne thought of her performance, her frustrations with James Franco.

A source close to Anne tell us that “it didn’t even cross her mind” that Christian and Christopher were in the audience as she was focused on entertaining the entire crowd and the millions watching at home with her cohost, James Franco.

Even after James and Anne were panned by critics and reports surfaced of the pair’s hatred for each other, an insider claims that Anne doesn’t hold too much resentment towards James.

“They both have egos, but to say they hate each other might be a bit of a stretch,” a source close to the actress tells us. “Anne is aware that not everything may have worked out.”

So is she not even a little mad at James? “She is frustrated that she tried and he brought her effort down and ruined what could have been a success,” confesses our insider.

While we expect that the pair will not be making a return as award show hosts, Anne is still a Hollywood starlet and has a big chance to prove herself with the Dark Night Rises.

Christopher feels that Anne’s Oscar performance has nothing to do with her ability to play Catwoman. “Christopher picks people that he feels is right for the part, and Anne is right for the part,” a source explains. “There is in no way that her performance at the Oscars changed that.”

Filming of  Dark Knight Rises is set to begin in May. Do you think Anne will make a good Catwoman even after her Oscar performance fail?

Anne has a smokin’ body and I’m sure she knows how to use it to get what she wants. If Nolan is less than pleased I’m sure she can bring him around. Probably many times

Anne was terrific at the Oscars. Someone had to be, since Franco sleepwalked through the live parts, lol.

Hollywoodlife , please stop instigating and spreading lies. I read most of the reviews, they are actually kind to Anne Hathaway because she held her ground. She didn’t run from the chaos , like the coward James Franco. I actually enjoyed Anne’s hosting performance. I respect her for being motivated and diligent for the whole program. Throughout the show, she maintained her poise, enthusiasm, and charm- without the help of her selfish co-host. Plus, she was completely comfortable on the Oscar stage for three hours- not easy to pull-off. No one could have saved that lousy show with horrible writing , hideous production, bad directing. After the Oscars, I have a newfound respect for Anne. This past award show will hurt Franco’s career and his reputation for a while.
