And the Oscar goes to…?
The shoe designer dismisses the Oscar-nominated actress in a chat that appears in the latest issue of Interview magazine.
The 70-year-old says: “Anne Hathaway…Pretty? Yes.
“Wonderful actress? Yes. But, I mean, I don’t even remember her. What is it about her?”
When fashion writer Tim Blanks suggests the actress was “very good” as Cat Woman in the Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises, the designer gives a stinging response.
“As Cat Woman, yes,” he said. “And I’m not saying she’s not beautiful or a great actress. I just don’t remember her.”
But the 30-year-old shouldn’t feel too badly. Blahnik has lumped her co-star Amanda Seyfried into the same instantly forgettable category.
The Spanish designer says they’re “old school girls like Elizabeth Taylor.”
“[They] should be working now instead of those anonymous girls. They’re all the same,” he says.
“I don’t even know Amanda Seyfried or whatever – they’re all the same! I try to remember.
“The only one I remember is Julia Roberts because she’s particular.”
He also has a penchant for Salma Hayek, whom he says he “almost fainted on” when he bumped into her at the Savoy Hotel in London.
“But she’s a sweet girl, beautiful. I love that,” Blahnik muses.
