They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery -- and Anne Hathaway is crossing her fingers that Katie Holmes believes that, too.
While appearing on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" this week, Hathaway revealed that she still hasn't heard from Holmes since she spoofed the Broadway actress on "Saturday Night Live" on Nov. 10. In the spot-on sketch, Hathaway nails Holmes's signature half-smile, bobbing head, light voice, and many trips to the zoo with her 6-year-old daughter, Suri. Hathaway first debuted the impression in 2010, and it quickly became an audience hit -- however, she has yet to hear what Holmes thinks of it.
"I have not heard from Katie," Hathaway told DeGeneres. "What I really wanted to have happen was ... Katie to come on the show and do me. And then I wanted to do this rap about how awesome I think Katie Holmes is. But she is on Broadway and killing it on Broadway, so she's busy."
Part of why Hathaway was able to impersonate Holmes so well was probably because the sketch took place in a setting she knows well -- "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." DeGeneres herself is regularly played by "SNL" cast member Kate McKinnon, whom the TV host showered with praise.
"Kate, who plays me, I'm always flattered by. I think she's great," DeGeneres said. "I called her when she did me the first time, and I always tweet about it."
But when it comes to another high-powered female actress who fell victim to her impressive impressions, Hathaway can rest at ease. Before she played up Claire Danes's "Homeland" character, bipolar CIA agent Carrie Mathison, and her iconic cry face, Hathaway received Danes's blessing.
"She just said, 'Go for it. Do your thing,'" Hathaway said.
Her impressions might be over the top, but Hathaway knows how to keep a low profile when she wants to. She also revealed to DeGeneres that she broke her arm in a bike accident after she finished shooting "Les Miserables" and before the press for "The Dark Knight Rises" began, and she was able to keep it a secret from the press.
"When my husband went to pick up my pain meds, the pharmacist was like, 'Catwoman can't ride a bike?' And I was like, 'Oh my God, I can't let anyone know about this.' So I managed to keep it a secret. Until now!" Hathaway said.
And it wasn't just any old sprain, as Hathaway had to have surgery to repair the bone. It seems the pharmacist made a very smart observation, too -- this butt-kicking actress has a long history of broken bones (both arms twice, her pinky, and her coccyx), and even admitted that she's "somewhat clumsy."
But with the "SNL" hit spoofs, blockbuster movies, a surprise wedding, and a 30th birthday in 2012, one little broken bone won't slow Hathaway down in 2013.
