Anne Hathaway donned a blonde wig to poke fun at Homelandstar Claire Danes in a Saturday Night Live skit and resurrected her Katie Holmes impression for the show.
The Devil Wears Prada actress took the reins of the famed TV comedy on Saturday night for her third stint as host, and her first target was Danes in her award-winning portrayal of bipolar CIA agent Carrie Mathison.
Hathaway feigned a tearful meltdown and a kiss with a detainee in an interview room in a parody of the popular TV drama, before moving on to make fun of newly-single actress Holmes.
The star previously impersonated Holmes on her first stint on SNL and she dressed up as the former Dawson’s Creek star again to present a spoof interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
SNL regular Kate McKinnon played DeGeneres during the routine, and her portrayal won high praise from the talk show host herself, who told fans on Twitter that the skit left in her hysterics when she watched it with her wife Portia de Rossi.
In a post on the social networking website, she writes, “Portia and I just laughed so hard at the spoof of my show on SNL. I love when Kate plays me.”
What looked like could be a long and bitter divorce battle for Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes has already ended with the pair quickly reaching a divorce settlement. The agreement has been signed and their divorce is official, Holmes’ lawyer Jonathan W. Wolfe announced Monday. The settlement comes less than two weeks after Holmes’ June 29th divorce filing.
“The case has been settled and the agreement has been signed. We are thrilled for Katie and her family and are excited to watch as she embarks on the next chapter of her life,” Wolfe said in a statement.
“We thank Tom’s counsel for their professionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution,” he added.
Details on the settlement, including the custody arrangement for the couple’s 6-year-old daughter Suri, have not been released. In a joint statement released Monday before news of the settlement broke, Holmes and Cruise said they remain committed to parenting Suri together.
“We are committed to working together as parents to accomplish what is in our daughter Suri’s best interests. We want to keep matters affecting our family private and express our respect for each other’s commitment to each of our respective beliefs and support each other’s roles as parents,” the pair said.
This was the first marriage for Holmes, 33, and the third for Cruise, 50. The Rock of Ages star was previously married to Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are divorcing after almost six years of marriage.
Cruise’s lawyer Bert Fields said Holmes had filed divorce papers on Thursday. His representative Amanda Lundberg said: “Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy to work this out.”
Holmes’s attorney Jonathan Wolfe told People magazine: “This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family. Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”
Cruise, 49, and Holmes, 33, were married in November 2006 after a year and a half together. He raised eyebrows by jumping on to a couch to declare his love for her on the Oprah Winfrey show, saying: “I can’t be cool. I can’t be laid-back. Something happened and I want to celebrate it.” Holmes revealed she had had a crush on the Top Gun actor as a girl.
He proposed at the Eiffel Tower in Paris in June 2005, and they were married at a 15th-century Italian castle in a ceremony conducted by a Church of Scientology minister in front of A-list guests.
Cruise had recently attended the premiere for Rock of Ages alone, and was also without Holmes when he picked up a Friars Club entertainment icon award this month. At the time, he said she was abroad and the family would reunite in time for Father’s Day.
Jack and Jill, starring Adam Sandler, Al Pacino, Katie Holmes, Allen Covert and Dana Carvey, opens in theaters Friday, November 11. The comedy centers on a successful advertising executive whose peaceful life is turned upside down when his identical twin sister comes to visit for Thanksgiving.
The film has a runtime of 1 hour 30 minutes and is rated PG for crude and sexual humor, language, comic violence and brief smoking.
Anne Hathaway was wracked with nerves ahead of her recent appearance on Saturday Night Live – because she was worried viewers would misinterpret her spoofs of Katie Holmes and princess-to-be Kate Middleton.
The Hollywood actress posed as Prince William’s new fiancee, opposite Andy Samberg as William, during a raucous sketch on Saturday’s (20Nov10) episode of the hit U.S. comedy show.
Later in the programme, she went on to portray fellow actress Katie Holmes, impersonating the Batman Begins star as she was questioned about her eventful life.
Hathaway admits she was wary of impersonating two big stars, and was delighted the sketches were well received.
She tells The Hollywood Reporter, “(It was) the first time, I’d never done anything like that, and so there wasn’t the pressure of expectation. So, I was a little more nervous going into it, with ‘Would they like it or wouldn’t they?’ But people seem really happy with the results. So I’m thrilled.” And Hathaway admits her impersonation of Holmes was actually based on the actress’ Dawson’s Creek character, Joey Potter – because she was a huge follower of the show.
She adds, “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. It wasn’t really Katie Holmes; it was more Joey Potter.”
Katie Holmes is the latest celebrity in talks to join the cast of hit TV musical Glee, according to online reports.
The former Dawson’s Creek star is reportedly negotiating a deal with Fo x network bosses to feature in a five-part guest spot during Glee’s upcom ing second season.
The National Enquirer reports Holmes has already hired a private singin g coach to help her prepare for the role.
A source says: “Katie is finalising a deal to join the cast for a limit ed story line next season.” Previous episodes of the hit U.S. series have featured cameos by Olivia Newton-John, rapper Eve, Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth and comedienne Molly Shannon.
