Anne Hathaway Speaks Out On 'Dark Knight' Shooting
July 22, 2012
Anne Hathaway, who plays Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, has now spoken out about the tragic Aurora, Colorado theater shooting Friday morning that's killed at least 12 people and wounded 58.
"My heart aches and breaks for the lives taken and altered by this unfathomably senseless act," she tells ETonline in a statement. "I am at a loss for words how to express my sorrow. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families."
On Friday, director Christopher Nolan also professed his "profound sorrow" at the shocking event.
"Speaking on behalf of the cast and crew of The Dark Knight Rises, I would like to express our profound sorrow at the senseless tragedy that has befallen the entire Aurora community. I would not presume to know anything about the victims of the shooting but that they were there last night to watch a movie. I believe movies are one of the great American art forms and the shared experience of watching a story unfold on screen is an important and joyful pastime," he said in a statement. "The movie theatre is my home, and the idea that someone would violate that innocent and hopeful place in such an unbearably savage way is devastating to me. Nothing any of us can say could ever adequately express our feelings for the innocent victims of this appalling crime, but our thoughts are with them and their families."
