We miss Kate.
We admit, she got on our nerves and lost some points with us back in her Oscar poledancing days (much the same way Miss Hathaway is now getting the brunt of the public’s cranky post-awards season exhaustion today). She did what so many lady stars do when they stake a claim to the statuette: she turned herself into one. We always enjoyed the Kate who’s funny and bawdy and didn’t seem up her own ass so much. The Serious Actress version of Kate left us bored. We thought maybe her surprise marriage to a guy named Rocknroll would ignite some of that old fire, and for all we know, maybe it has, but Mrs. Rocknroll is still working an uber-glam look for British Harper’s:

On learning about herself: “I’ve really learned a great deal about myself, in the last four years in particular. I think I can see more clearly now – about how the pattern of past experiences has shaped who I am, and the characters I have played – and I’m grateful for that.”
On her past experiences shaping her: “I have so much more material to draw on for work – rubble, bricks – and I know I can carry it now.”
Y’know, if this was a couple of years ago, we’d probably bemoan all the perfection on display, but like we said: we miss her. We’ll take it. She does look fabulous, after all.
